What our customers say

  • Gabe and his team were helpful from the very beginning, talking through options with a very indecisive bride. The whole thing came together very quickly and we were even adding extra chairs two days before the event which they didn't mind at all. Simon and I can't thank the team enough and would highly recommend using them. Our festival themed wedding (Wedstock) looked every bit the part. Thanks Guys!Charlotte - Somerset Wedding
  • From the very first meeting with Gabriel and the team at SW Marquees we felt no one else would compare, and decided this would be the company and wedding venue for us. We instantly trusted Gabriel's extensive knowledge and advice. In the lead up to our special day the communication was excellent, and when the time finally came for the marquee to be erected the team were efficient and hard working, going the extra mile in helping us decorate the marquee too. Our ideas coupled with Gabriel's suggestions made it look better than we could ever have imagined and the compliments are still flooding in from our guests now. A huge thank you to all at SW Marquees for making our day what it was.Anonymous
  • I just wanted to write to thank you so much for the seamless switch over last Saturday, we loved the layout, the lit poles, the mix of tables, it all looked great. Special mention must go to your ' man on site' , Will, who was so attentive and proactive throughout the evening - he was always one step ahead of a request and even helped to look after the DJ and photographers when there was a power crisis not of SW origins, do please pass on our thanks and I hope that we will see him next year. Already planning for next year and wondered if the lights down the poles could be coloured rather than ivory ? They looked fantastic but I think next year they are going to go bright!Chrissie
