Harpers wedding

Dear Caroline Thank you so very very much for all your help, advice and expertise throughout the planning for our wedding. And thank you for all your practical help on the day itself. You have been a pleasure to deal with and, it is safe to say, our wedding would not have been the perfect day it was without you. We really appreciate all the help and little extras (like organising bar staff, meeting us at your home, and running milk churns around Wiltshire) that you have done. Many thanks, James and Bethan Harper

Also just wanted to say that we were SO thrilled with Vintage Marquees – You were so helpful in the planning stage, the team that put them up were delightful (and very efficient), the whole thing looked lovely and was JUST the effect that we had hoped to create and so many of our guests said how much they liked the look too. Very best wishes Fee

Dear Caroline and the team, Thank you so much for making Jen and Henry’s wedding on Saturday so beautiful! Your help and suggestions and your beautiful marquee and ‘sundries’ made it a stunning setting and truly all Jen dreamt of. I only wish you could have seen your tables adorned with vintage vases of fragrant garden roses and sweet peas, your arch smothered with flowers and guests enjoying the late night warmth of the fire pit. Magical! Thank you, again, for your help and inspiration, yours, Jean Davis

Dear Caroline, Just to say the tent was amazing and just what we wanted! And your guys are absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much, Mandy x

To Caroline, Thank you so much for letting Career Support Wiltshire borrow your vintage games from Vintage Marquees. Carers and walkers really enjoyed the vintage games at the picnic in the park. kind regards Julie Jackson, event coordinator.

Dear Caroline Thank you so very much for supplying all of the wonderful furniture for our wedding. It looked absolutely fantastic -hopefully you can catch a glimpse from the photo on the front of the card! All our love Jessica and Toby x

Just wanted to let you know how happy we are with the marquee, it looks fantastic in the orchard. Can't wait to see it all lit up on Saturday evening! Thank you so much for the card too, excellent design! Tamzin

Dear Caroline I just wanted to say thank you very much for all your help last week. The event was a complete success, albeit a little cold, and the Americans seemed to enjoy themselves. The Marquee was ideal for the event and looked rather good once my wife and daughter had dressed it. I thought your new van looked rather at home when parked in front of the marquee and they complemented each other rather nicely. By the way, I am most envious of your lovely classic van. Again many thanks and all the best for the future. yours sincerely Chris Sloane

I’d also like to say a massive thank you to Holly and Joe who worked tirelesslyon the day, and it was such great fun all working together. I hope we can work together on future events, Let us know if you have any feedback from your end, we are always interested to hear how things went from a supplier’s point of view. Kind Regards, Isabelle Sully

Hi Caroline, Just wanted to thank you again for helping us with our event on Saturday.The turn out was just amazing and couldn't have wished for a betterday.The tent looked brilliant! really appreciate what you did for us.Hope you had a good time at Glasto!Best wishesIzzyIzzy Van De VenSoi Dog Merchandise

To Caroline - Thank you so much for the gorgeous decorations both inside and out that you so skillfully created for our wedding day! We had the perfect day and absolutely adored the decorating of the barn, it was just as we’d imagined, it was perfect! As the sun shone everyone loved all the outdoor games, especially the coconut shy. The kids loved it, both the big and little ones! It was an absolute pleasure working with you, thank you so very much.Lots of love, Lizzie and Baz xxx

Caroline and her team were excellent from start to finish. Caroline was always at the end of the phone and would give advice and make useful recommendations. The vintage marquee set the venue off superbly and was just what I had pictured in my mind, rustic and full of old world charm. The games were brilliant and everyone absolutely loved them, I would highly recommend the coconut shy and the skittle alley, endless hours of fun. I would also like to mention the wooden bar, if you are doing your own bar you should definitely hire it, its looks great and fits the theme. I cannot thank Caroline enough for all her help and wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Love Jenna Foster married at Bayardo Farm 14/06/14

Hi Caroline, Just wanted to send a quick note to say a huge thank you. The marquees and all the tables, chairs etc. all looked fantastic and definitely was everything that I had envisaged and more! It was a wonderful day and the set up couldn't have been more perfect than if I had taken it straight out of a magazine! Also the two Josh's were fantastic, keeping all the guests well stocked up and couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. If you could please pass on our thanks to them as well it would be much appreciated. Thanks again for everything. Sarah

Hi Caroline Yes it went absolutely brilliantly and the marquee looked incredible. I will send you some pics when I get them all. Best wishes Emma

Hi Caroline I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for the tent last week. We absolutely loved it and had the most fabulous party. I think it looked absolutely beautiful and lots of people commented on how lovely it was, so many thanks again Joey x

Vintage Marquees were a pleasure to deal with, it's so refreshing to have a helpful contact on the other end of the phone and not just a middle man for some huge catering company. And the marquees are beautiful! I came across your website while looking for vintage chair hire, for my wedding party on the 30th August. I was amazed with the selection of things you have for hire on your website! I work for a large events company, and even I was having trouble sourcing some of this.

The marquee is looking perfect and my pat parents commented several times on the professionalism and helpfulness of your team, so many thanks!

Hi Caroline, Sorry for the late message, we were just so busy after the wedding before we went away. We just wanted to say thank you so much for the marquee and all the bits that came with it, your team were brilliant too! We had so many compliments about how so different and lovely the marquee was, and really added to our vintage tea party theme, the extra window walls were brilliant too, as the weather was not brilliant in the morning so we ended up having to leave most of the walls on. I have attached a few photos of the marquee all done up for you. Thank you again, Bethany and Kenny

Hi Caroline, First of all, I just wanted to say that it's been great working with you and your team - professional, punctual and responsive throughout! Thank you. Best Regards, Leo

Morning Caroline, I just wanted to drop you a short email to thank you for the beautiful marquee, and I thought you might like a couple of pictures from the day. I have been asked by four people to design, plan and coordinate their weddings having been to ours, so I may well be back in touch soon! The friends from whom we rented the field also want me to do six a year for them! Best regards, Gemma

Hey Caroline, Just wanted to send a little email to say thank you SO much to you and your fabulous team for making our wedding so special... It really was a lovely touch to have your beautiful items laid out throughout the wedding... I also REALLY appreciate you getting the other items to me... I couldn't have done it without you!! Thanks again for everything! Lucie and Ross

Hello Caroline, How are you? I trust the summer has been keeping you super busy! I just wanted to drop you an email to say how much I LOVED the marquee you supplied for our wedding, it was just so perfect and couldn’t have been a better fit with the Rustic theme! I would also like to say thank you to the team of guys you sent down to set up, they were extremely helpful! Many thanks again, it was a pleasure dealing with you and your team and as I said your marquee was just perfect! Best wishes and lots of love Rhi xxxxx Wishing you the best of luck with your business going forward, I will most definitely be recommending you!

I've attached one picture of the marquee of night - we have loads though, of everyone eating dinner in the marquee, dancing, playing with the coconut shy and croquet etc, and of course the marquee with our colourful bunting in it. If you would like any of these let me know! You asked for feedback on the fairy lights and we may have mentioned it the day after, but they provided fantastic light at night. Along with a few candles on tables the marquee had just enough light for people to sit and natter without squinting. We’d also like to let you know how much we loved the marquees we hired and all of the furniture and games. We’ve got some great pics of people playing with the coconut shy (I knocked off two with one throw!) and croquet, which provided a great distraction for those who didn’t want to sit around and just chat during the drinks reception. Also, the milk urns we hired from you looked absolutely fantastic in our ceremony area, filled with flowers. We were really grateful for the matting on the day – I hadn’t wanted it originally because I wanted to have grass under my feet, but after the lawn at the venue was damaged a few weeks beforehand the matting was a massive help. Not only did it cover up the soil underneath, it was really well put together and all my worries about people tripping over lumps and bumps were unfounded. Phew! So, a big thank you from us for your contribution to our day. We are so pleased with how it all went and grateful for all your hard work and that of your team. It was a real pleasure to meet and work with you all All the best. Laura

Hello Mrs P! Caroline, I didn't get to see you properly after the big day, but I just wanted to say the biggest THANK YOU to you for all your help and advice with the planning of the wedding, your amazing marquee and the beautiful food. I just cant tell you how much we loved our wedding - I have never felt happier in my life! Everything was just as we hoped it would be, and that was really due to having such expert advice and such a brilliant team! Love Rachael xxx

Thank you so much to Caroline and her team for the hire and expert set up of the beautiful Essex marquee for our wedding on 28th June. Caroline was a pleasure to deal with and her team of guys were extremely helpful when setting up. All our love and thanks Rhiannon and Oliver xx

“just a little note to say ‘thank you’ to you and your team for everything you did at Stowford Manor Farm on the weekend of Olly and Kate’s wedding. You were all so helpful and friendly – which really helped to make the day so successful. Kind regards Olly’s Mum

Also I would love to have bunting and fairy lights added to the quote as these would look fantastic, ..... . . I am very excited at the prospect of my vintage style wedding and such a huge part of that is down to your lovely lovely marquees and styling, so thank you so much for providing such an amazing service! Thanks again, Katherine

We just wanted to say another big thank you for your lovely marquee, it made the wedding! We had an amazing day....no rain and the marquee just set the whole theme of our day. Our wedding has been showcased on a wedding blog - so you're getting married. I've attached the link below as there are some lovely pics of the marquee & you've had a little mention. Let me know if you'd like any copies of the pics for your website.
