Something a little different for this update – a little peak behind the curtains as we though it may be fun to see where a couple of our Marquees ended up with a focus on two very different household parties.
It has been yet another busy week for UK Tents with out warehouse emptying almost as fast as we’re restocking. Clearly Marquees are seen as a valuable asset in hospitality, industry and domestic settings, amongst others.
Spring has so far, lets face it been a washout. With the prevailing advice that outdoors is safer than indoors there has been a big demand in weather proofing gardens whilst maintaining a well-ventilated space. So we’ve revisited two of our customers to see how they utilised our tents and how they found the experience.
Birthday Party With UK Tents
First, we went to a customer we delivered to in South London. This was a rush job as they had planned a barbecue and children’s entertainer for a garden party to celebrate their child’s first ever Birthday and realised the day before that British weather was going to be typically British.
They ordered one of our smaller Marquee’s as they owned a typical semi detached with relatively small garden. We delivered it in good time and wished them well with the event.
I spoke to Mr J. the customer, a few days later and he confided that the party was a great success. He was glad he came to us as he used to own a gazebo and found our product to be more weather resistant, more robust, and comfortable, far more superior. In his own words…
“Gazebo’s can’t hold a candle too marquees”
He broke the tent down and its currently being stored in his garage and has plans to loan it out to other family members when they need it as well making use of it over Birthdays to come…
The second customer had ordered one of our larger Premium PVC Marquees with decorative lining – Mr and Mrs A. own a large, detached property in the country with a spacious amount of land. This was for their Daughter’s engagement party, having been forced to postpone it three times due to the pandemic.
Marquee Summer Party
When I spoke to Mrs A. after the party, she explained that they had scaled down the number of guests due to current guidelines, but that they were determined that the engagement was going to go ahead “come what may”. Having the Marquee gave them the confidence that the event would take place, well ventilated yet protected from the worst of the weather.
She was impressed at how sturdy the Marquee was and how easy it was to decorate and provide a pretty backdrop, which have been captured on photograph and video to look back on.
Both Daughter and prospective Son-in-Law have already made the request that they hold the Wedding reception in the Marquee when they are finally able to tie the knot. Currently the Marquee is safely stowed away in the purpose-built bags they purchased from us.
Its really heart warming to know that we have helped enable such happy events, even during such challenging times.
