Annual Athletics Union Dinner

Annual Athletics Union Dinner at Rougemont Castle, Exeter, Devon

We were proud to supply a 130′ x 40′ marquee again for the Annual Athletics Union Dinner.

All the guests were well fed by the wonderful Tom at “Dartmoor Kitchens” and entertained by “Sonic Sounds”.

Due to the cobbles and hardstanding our marquee was secured with lots of water barrels and dressed in the Athletics Unions colours of Black and Green.

Wedding for 200 at Instow

Wedding at Instow, Devon.

This was another huge wedding at one of our favourite venues – Tapeley Park at Instow, Devon.

The wedding marquee was an ivory and chocolate theme with dressed chairs with a huge Bar and Cosy area with sofas.

Morris dancers initially greeted the arriving guests to the wedding at Tapley Park. This was followed by Louise and Glyn welcoming their guests with a fantastic rendition of “Loveshack”.

The huge marquee with a bar and relaxing area with comfy sofas, also had a patio area outside where guests could continue the wedding celebrations.

Family Party Marquee

Family Party Marquee at Little Bidlake.

Silver Wedding Anniversary and Family Easter Party at Little Bidlake Farm.

With a stunning marquee,  fantastic location, incredible weather and wonderful company of friends and family – the whole weekend was amazing!

The stunning marquee was the beautiful venue for a very memorably and happy family party for over 100 friends and family.

The marquee was draped in ivory pleated linings and purple swags and drapes finished off with Lime Green overlays in the ceiling – beautiful! As day drifted into night the blue LED lights over the dance floor area glowed and added to the ambiance.

Golden Wedding Marquee

Golden Wedding Anniversary Marquee.

We supplied windows on all sides of this Golden wedding anniversary marquee to allow the guests to “feast” on the spectacular mid Devon scenery.

This was a wet weekend in April but the guests stayed warm and dry inside our elegant marquee – roll on summer!

Our customers wanted a relaxed atmosphere in which to entertain their family and friends at their Golden Wedding Anniversary party – so we used their paddock for the marquee.

With a line of matting from the gate to the marquee – the guests were not troubled by the April Showers making the ground soft! We used our Dark Oak stained wooden floor to ensure a solid base for the guests’ tables and chairs in the bumpy field – amazing what a little extra packing can do!

The stunning hip end ivory roof with red swags and gold drapes added a touch of colour and class to this simple marquee setting!”

South West Children’s Hospice Charity Walk

To all of our wonderful Pledgers…WE DID IT – YAY!

On a lovely sunny morning William and I, together with or our lovely dogs Bruno and Taffy, met up with over 200 other mad fools (and their dogs!) to attempt the 12.5 charity walk in aid of South West Children’s Hospice.

The walk started at Upton Village Hall, around Wimbleball Lake and wearily back to the hall. Luckily the weather was very kind (except for one sharp shower) the human and canine company was excellent and the scenery was stunning – so it was all over in a respectable 4.5 hours. We had a great day, ate a delicious picnic with the dogs by the lakeside, and thoroughly enjoyed walking in a “new” to us area – and all rounded off by knowing that we were helping to raise some much-needed money for a truly worthwhile cause.

A huge thank you to all of you who have pledged money to us – and if you haven’t, but would like to – please do send your money in asap – and thank you so much again!”
