We completed this marquee for the Exmoor 30:30, a long-distance charity run which raises money for military charities. You can see a time-lapse of the marquee being erected at 0:41.

Dear South West Marquees,

Thank you so much everyone for all your efforts to provide this most magnificent structure! From the minute the team arrived disturbing the wasps nest I knew we were in great hands!! all of you completely unflappable despite this slight mishap. working around my rather awkward garden didn’t seem to phase you too much- I had great faith it was all manageable! such efficiency, great leadership, good humour and courtesy throughout the whole week.

thank you so much and I would highly recommend you to people in the future.

A huge thank you from Caroline and Mike. – October 2016


We cannot say enough good things about South West Marquees. They provided the marquees for our wedding and turned a very awkward space into a magical venue. from the communication before the big day, to the assembly of the marquee, to last minute changes we wanted to make – nothing was too much trouble for them. Gabe and Neal and the team were incredible – friendly, polite, fun, and extremely hard working. Everyone commented on how great the marquees looked and we would not hesitate to recommend them – actually we insist that you use them! THANK YOU  for everything!!

Dear Gabe,

Show Number 164 has been staged and was once again a great success.

Once again a great team effort has brought about another very successful Mid Somerset Show and I would like to thank you for your contribution. Without you, and the rest of the team, the show would not happen.

I would like to extend the society’s gratitude for the way in which your team dealt with the Show’s needs. we do really appreciate your support.

With thanks and kind regards, Ian Harvey- Chairman. – August 2016

Hi Gabe,

Alan and I wanted to pass on our thanks to you and all the team at SW Marquees for your help with the marquee for our wedding last weekend. Everyone we dealt with was so helpful, even when we were umming and aaaahing about every little thing! Thank you all for being so efficient and for making our lives so much easier.

The marquee looked excellent and the lights really topped it off.

Kate and Alan – July 2016


Dear Chris, Gabe and Team,

Thank you so much for all your hard work getting the lovely vintage marquee up for my daughters wedding last weekend.

The challenges of getting the toilet trailer under the low branches of our walnut tree, erecting the marquee partly on a steep sandy bank and having to do all this in the pouring rain were all taken in very good humour by Josh and his team! They were all so polite and their can do attitude was so positive! On the Saturday the wind was gusting in at just the wrong angle. Chris came out so quickly to secure the bank sides down which was such a relief! Thank you Chris! Everyone loved the marquee, it looked stunning – particularly in the evening with all the golf ball lights on and the fairy lights in the tree. Taking the marquee down was conducted with the same slick efficiency. All the boys knowing their job, all polite and cheerful, all a credit to South West Marquees!

Thank you all so much. Your hard work was very much appreciated. we will certainly be recommending South West Marquees!

Hi to all the team at South West Marquees,

Thank you for supplying a great marquee for our wedding reception. It was one of the pieces in the jigsaw that made a fantastic day which was enjoyed by all.

You will be pleased to know we will and have recommended you in the future, and will be sure to call you should we require in the future.

Regards and thanks, Louise and David.


Hi Gabe,

Just wanted to say a belated thank you for doing such a great job for us and putting up with all the last minute changes and additions. In the end, it all went swimmingly!

Your guys were particularly helpful and thorough on Monday too. Much appreciated!

Hopefully we will find another excuse to have a party before too long!

Thanks, Brenda.

Gabriel, I wanted to email on Friday but ran out of time, just to say how amazing the tent looked. The lining was inspiration on your behalf, how beautiful it looked. The chairs, etc. all fabulous. Thank you to you and all the team who made the whole experience fun and unstressful. I was whisked off on a secret honeymoon very early Sunday, thinking I had the weekend to sort and tidy, so apologies if slightly chaotic for you today taking the tent down. We had the most incredible evening, and a big part of that was down to South West Marquees. THANK YOU ALL. Cant wait to do it all again
