The tents were absolutely stunning. I'm so glad I picked the Bombay boudoir I loved how the light reflected in the tiny little mirrors. And I could hear all my guests talking about it all night. Totally different experience to your average marquee party, we were dancing until dawn! The following week we had the most lovely emails and texts from almost all of our guests thanking us for an amazing party and complimenting us on how beautiful it looked.
We enjoyed the day immensely so thank you. With regards to the tent, firstly I have to say the guys coming to put the tent up were great, Liam and his team came on a Thursday and my wife was dealing with them and on Friday they came to bring a missing chair so I met them. When you have team members like that it helps the whole experience.
I don't know where to begin to thank you all at the Arabian Tent Company for the most spectacular tent for my husband's 50th birthday. It was truly stunning and all our guests were amazed and delighted. It really made the birthday and I am so pleased we spent the extra money to have your beautiful tent. We eclipsed the other tents in the square and I must have given your details out at least ten times so lets hope something comes of it.
The crew were fantastic. Not only were they charming and polite to have around the house, they were positive and cheerful despite the snow and freezing conditions! The tents were cosy and inviting - just like the photos on website. Honestly cannot think of anything to improve on, considering the Arctic conditions it couldn't have gone any better.
The Tent company were wonderful, thank you very,very much, all our guest thought the garden looked amazing. The crew were efficient and polite and all in all we were extremely pleased with the layout and the furnishings and the service as a whole, we will be recommending you to our family and friends.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for making my wife so happy by providing us an amazing tent that she absolutely loved! As you know with it being on don't tell the bride she had no idea so was amazed to see it, with all the trees, animal cut outs and the legendary parrot it looked brilliant
Well I have to say overall I am seriously impressed! Your team are all fantastic! The speed at which you send out design layouts at the first contact really helped to hook me in and helped me to completely visualise the layout. The crew were great, really relaxed, friendly, but at the same time professional, with a large dollop of banter thrown in! They even allowed the children to safely wander around and feel part of the action at the put up and down.
Okay so we have nothing but absolute praise for your entire team.... From when I first saw what you had to offer on your website, to coming to meet you in person and then finally seeing it all for real... You did not fail to deliver in any way, shape or form. It was completely magical, a movie set some said, others like walking into Rajasthan....
What a great day we have just had! Your team of 'Erection Specialists' were brilliant. So much has been 'erected' and arranged - the whole creation from marquee to landscape. As we take our eyes up from the open marquee and look through the top marquee and have three gorgeous Indian cocktail tables gently swaying in the breeze and evening sunlight, wow this deserves a medal!! I love it! Many, many thanks, Christina.
Dear Arabian Tents, A huge great thank you for all your help on the wedding of the Century! Your fabulous tent went down a storm and really stole the show. We have already had some people possibly interested for their children's weddings! It really did look gorgeous and was enjoyed by everyone especially the flower girls who twirled tirelessly for three days inside! So many thanks and all the very best. Rita and Mike.
Just to say thank you so much for decorating the barn for our wedding reception so beautifully. We were really pleased and everyone loved it. We had the best day so thank you! Lots of love Belinda & Manil.
Dear Katherine & all at Arabian Tents, just a quick note to say thank you so much for supplying the splendid ‘Bombay Boudoir’ for Hannah’s 21st birthday party. You have no idea how much we appreciated all the work that you and your team did to make the event such a success, and problem free! We had so much fun – a truly memorable evening and I know that Hannah will have so many happy memories.
I also wanted to thank you for putting us in touch with the DJ – I know the young ones really enjoyed his music and I have to say that James and I haven’t danced like that with all our friends since I can’t remember when! It has taken me all this time to recover and I now realise that 6am party-finishes have to be few and far between! Many thanks again for all your hard work, you’re a real star in the Foster household!
Lots of love, Sue x
What can I say!!!! The tent provided by you for my daughter’s wedding reception was a PURE DELIGHT. The erectors were highly competent, friendly, courteous and at all times sensitive to the garden surroundings. On the day of the wedding all the guests were amazed by the tent, having seen nothing remotely like it before. I can truly say that it was spell binding and created just the right atmosphere that we were looking for – a casual relaxed reception in quality surroundings. Your product created pure magic nestled amongst the garden of hollyhocks and sweet peas. I feel I cannot express my delight adequately in words. Once again many thanks for having such an efficient and talented team and having a superb product to offer. Best wishes and thanks from the Walley family and their 155 guests.
It was AMAZING! You have the most fabulous staff who were a delight to work with in both setting up and bringing down the marquees. I will send photos when I have some. Please thank everybody for helping to make the event such a success. All the guests (and I mean everyone) thought the whole setting was stunning. We definitely achieved the ‘wow’ factor we were aiming for. Having been rather anxious at the beginning, I now want to do it all again… just a big thank you to the Arabian Tent Company. You have a wonderful business and may your success go from strength to strength. Warmest wishes, Cynthia.
Thank you so much for creating the beautiful theme for our special day. Both Ben and myself along with our guests were blown away with the tent and furnishings. It was all we could have hoped for and more! All our love, Mr & Mrs Laver xx
Thank you so much for providing the magnificent Arabian tent for our festival in September. I can’t tell you how popular it has been and we have received the most wonderful feedback from visitors. I do hope we can work together again, and please do pop over to say hello (and have tea if you have time!) next time you are in the vicinity. With best wishes and many thanks, Colin.
Thank you so much for supplying us with such a unique “chill out tent” for our party. The marquee looked splendid and it had many compliments, as much as giving us much comfort throughout the evening. Please could you pass on our thanks to the delightful young men who set up everything and worked so hard for us. Thank you again – it was a pleasure using your company. With kind regards, Trish
Many thanks again for all your input for a very successful and happy evening. I hope we meet again for another party. I’ll have to think up an excuse! Best wishes, Laura
Dearest Katherine, thank you so much for your brilliant tentage – it was a perfect house for our party! I know it helped to make everyone feel super cool and comfortable and it looked dynamite! Lots of love, Laura & Seb.
Dear Katherine and all at Arabian Tents, I just wanted to say a massive thank you to your and your team for helping us to make my birthday party such a success. The Moulin Rouge tent was truly wonderful…and has now actually spoilt me for anything else…I couldn’t go back to using a normal marquee after that party…it was perfection! Thank you so very much…it was exquisitely memorable. Love from Lindsay
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for providing us with the most extraordinarily beautiful tent. It was a constant source of admiration and wonder. It was the perfect place to gather all our favourite people together to enjoy the splendours of the evening. The feelings of warmth and love that starts to accumulate can still be felt within the garden although the tent has gone. It fills ones heart and soul.
Your tent guys were superb. They worked tirelessly in the wind, the cold, the rain, cheerfully and happily. Please thank them all again for their tremendous efforts. I am only too happy to recommend you to anyone who needs colour and beauty at their party.
Justine and I were blown away by Arabian Tents and all your amazing work, the set up crew were fantastic - Liam was efficient, friendly and extremely hard working and his team literally got their heads down and worked away. They were professional and polite at all times and nothing seemed too much for them. Right down to when we discovered things had been forgotten, they were straight onto your office and the situation was rectified with the minimum of fuss.
Everything about our experience dealing with Arabian Tents has been great. the staff are friendly and professional, there's a good mix of a relaxed, light hearted attitude and a desire to get the job done. The tents are obviously fabulous, they look beautiful inside and out. The 30x30' Cornish Cream tent was big enough to cater for our 80 guests comfortably, but small enough to feel cosy and intimate. It was lovely to be able to roll up two sides of the tent on the day to make the most of the good weather. All of our guests were blown away by the whole experience, we couldn't have hoped for a better result.
The tent and furnishings themselves were spectacular, all party goers were very impressed and there were very many photos taken, a good percentage of which are up on various Facebook pages etc. Lots of people asked who supplied the tent and while I don't expect the student party goers to be in a position themselves to host a marquee garden party I am sure they will all report back favourably to their various families who might well want to do so. Also we had 8 to 10 sleeping in the tent (for a few hours at least) and although the party went on until 3 or 4 am with a reasonably loud speaker for music the tent seemed to keep enough noise in that we didn't suffer any neighbour complaints!
When your crew arrived, our rather ordinary framed tent had gone up and it all looked rather miserable so I said to your boys, I hope you can transform this and my god they did just that....it was all I had envisaged.... And far more..... Just looked absolutely spectacular, a tented palace!! No doubt that it had made a significant dent in our budget, but it was so worth it. My husband said to me the night before your guys came.... Don't be disappointed if the interior is not quite as you've envisaged..... Thankfully for both our sakes, that clearly was NOT the case.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for all your support and enthusiasm with regards to the event I hosted on Saturday. The feedback myself and the clients received from the guests has been amazing! The party, the entertainment, the catering and of course not to forget the piece de resistance - "the marquee" were all a huge success, plus we couldn't have asked for better weather! Many comments were made about your beautifully designed and crafted marquee and it was a pleasure working with you. I look forward to our paths crossing again in the near future. All the best, Natasha.
Thank you so much for supplying me with such an amazing tent! It really was so beautiful and everyone thought it was the best marquee they had ever seen! Thank you for putting up with all my requests and queries and making the whole thing hassle free. Thanks also for putting us in touch with the caterers and entertainment - the food was another talking point, as were the performers. Please pass on our thanks. It's so sad now that everything is over but I hope one day I'll be able to have another party and use The Arabian Tent Company again! Many thanks to you and your team. Hanna.
I just wanted to pen a few words to say a huge ‘Thank you’ for all your help and tireless organisation ahead of our wedding day. The marquee was a real hit – all the guests commented on how beautiful it was and it’s originality made our day all the more special. I don’t underestimate how much work it all is, and your tireless patience with all my questions didn't go unnoticed. Please also pass on our thanks to the team who set it up and took it down as well. Many thanks, Bobby
Dear Katherine (and all the lads!), Just wanted to say a huge thank you for supplying our fabulous tents at our recent wedding. Katherine, you have been so incredibly helpful and the boys worked so hard, were polite, hard-working and, again, incredibly helpful and accommodating. Nothing at all was too much trouble, and the marquee looked amazing. We had the most wonderful wedding and your fantastic marquees gave it the real ‘wow’ factor. Good luck for the future and thanks again for a fantastic service and a job well done! Best regards, Jacqui & Paul x
Dear Katherine and team, very many thanks for supplying such a splendid marquee and all the trimmings – your staff were a pleasure to have in the garden; very hard working, good humoured and efficient. Eliza and Aaron were absolutely delighted with the interior design of the marquee and all the chill out furniture. So many delightful details that completed the whole effect. The whole set up and smooth organisation were more than we had expected, so thrilled we were with all of it. Many of our guests said it was the very best they had seen – and some of them have been to LOTS of weddings recently! Thank you again for all your help, advice, reliability and organization – all very much appreciated. Best wishes, Jean
What a beautiful wedding you enabled us to have! Thank you so, so much – it really did set such a relaxed and celebratory tone having such a brilliant space – with great chill-out places, a dance floor right in the middle to force everyone onto it, the side opening out onto the garden making all the wandering about so natural and lovely. Every detail you’d thought of is so imaginative and beautiful – like the little Indian wooden print-blocks through to the pretty carvings on the coffee tables and a beautiful mixture of pristine cushions. You were so lovely to plan things along with as well and I really enjoyed the whole process from your popping over to do a reccy in the rain through to putting the final touches in place. Thank you so much – I really couldn’t have imagined a more glorious setting to get married in as it was stunning visually as well as great practicality with giving people sofas to chill ont and pretty little things to discover really changes the vibe and gets people relaxed, chatting, dancing and generally having a ball! Huge thanks again, Jessamy.
Thank you very much for all your help with getting the tent arranged for our event in September. It was just the right size and the atmosphere was amazing, even though it rained all day. Please convey my sincerer thanks to all your team who were helpful, efficient and did all that was necessary to make it a successful event. With best regards, Allan.
Thank you for helping us to make our day soooo special. All the little touches you and your team have done have meant a lot to us. The team who put up the marquee were amazing. Very efficient and respectful of the surroundings (as it was near a play park) so please extend our thanks to them.
Katherine, I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done. The tent looks AMAZING! I can’t wait to party in it! Kylie x
Everyone commented on the stellar role played by the tent for my birthday party last weekend and all the accompanying furniture in creating the perfect celebratory atmosphere. When it was all ready, it looked even better than I had imagined and was truly the most stunning setting for a very happy weekend. It was a delight to meet you and your team, and it was sad to see the tent being taken down. As soon as all the photos are ready I’ll send you a selection – but they will only be at best an approximate of an amazingly magical palace. Thank you so much for your part in my birthday weekend. Best wishes, Clare
First can I say the man who brought the PA system and set it up was sooo kind and helpful. He bent over backwards to make everything right for us. Similarly, your team of guys who set up the tent were wonderful – so obliging, it made such a difference. Finally, the marquee was absolutely beautiful – just what we had hoped for. With thanks and best wishes, Catherine.
The crew were fantastic and rose to the unique challenges of our set up incredibly well, couldn't have asked for better. The general ambience we great, especially the trellising gave a really good finish. Telephone manner was good and staffs were very polite and helpful.
I just want to say a huge thank you for all your hard work for our event on Saturday. You and your team were so professional despite the sauna-esq conditions on the day, and produced such a fantastic setting for our celebration. I mentioned it on the Sunday but there were just so many comments about the marquee and how it really suited every moment of the evening from the welcome drinks to a chilled out space for later.
The party was fabulous and I genuinely believe that is down to the atmosphere that Arabian Tents produced - they danced until 7 am! The guests have been raving ever since - comments like "the most amazing marquee we have ever seen"; "incredible attention to detail"; 'I genuinely felt I was somewhere in Arabia".
Your tents had the design, the style, the uniqueness, the wow factor. No other tent that I have ever seen brings the same quality feeling of being somewhere a million miles from where you are. The party went wonderfully well, absolutely amazing... the tent was a real hit. Our guests loved the event, everyone commented that it was something they had never seen before and they were amazed. I mentioned a thank you to the 'Arabian Tent Company' in my speech and said that if anyone wants to transfer their garden then they can let me know and I will put them in touch.
It was a magical experience having such a dramatic event in our garden, and I truly believe the tent was fundamental in setting the scene. It saved hours of sourcing props and room dressings as the tent did it all for me. If I could watch everyone's faces as they walked in again I would be ecstatic, they were truly amazed!
The crew were excellent, super friendly and gave great advice on the day. I loved everything about your tents... flexible sizes and the lining was lovely. I can't think of anything you could have improved on as you were pretty perfect for our job. Our party was a great success and looked great, our guests felt happy. You got back to me quickly... even when I was driving you mad with changes! All staff were very polite and helpful There is nothing I feel you could improve on.
Dear Katherine and team, we just wanted to write to you and say thank you to you and your amazing team for the stunning job you did for our wedding. The marquees looked just magical and mad the wedding. It was everything that I dreamed! Thank you. I will email you some pictures. With love, Kate and Corin.
Just wanted to write and say THANK YOU! Your tents are FABULOUS! They made our day. I cannot express how wonderful they looked and how important they were in creating the wonderful, fantastic atmosphere that was our wedding. You're created things of great beauty - brilliant! Also thank you so much for our beautiful Bridal Boudoir for our wedding night. It was so perfect and so spoiling. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Lots of love Karen and Rick.
Belated but never the less sincere thanks for providing such fantastic marquees for Karen and Rick's wedding. We have received many 'thank you' letters and almost without exception they have mentioned the wonderful tents! They made a substantial contribution to what turned out to be an amazing wedding. Regards, Leslie Plumb.
Apologies for the delay in this message. The party was a huge success and we were absolutely thrilled with the marque and the way the barn was decorated. Your team did a fantastic job and were all extremely helpful, polite and very enthusiastic, I couldn't fault the entire process at all! I hope you're very well and I'll look forward to organising our next party with you. Best wishes, Karin.
I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how pleased we were with the amazing marquee! We had such a response from our guests I had to pass it onto you – both from the ‘oldies’ at the golden wedding anniversary as well as the teenagers in the evening “Wow, it’s so cool!” was a typical response! Also the chaps that came and put it up were very professional and well-mannered – makes a nice change! I’m sure you must get a lot of praise but I wanted to let you know that we felt this was definitely worth doing and judging from the conversations I had with some of the guests I’m sure you’ll have many more enquiries!
Best regards, Ruth
We had a fantastic few days in our ‘Bombay Boudoir’ (even sleeping in it through last night’s heavy rain). I hate to see it being ‘de-erected’ by your ‘specialists’ and want to say a huge “thank you”. The party, the theme, the beach, everything was perfect and of course the weather was magnificent. I loved the whole experience of your Bombay Boudoir marquee. Thank you! Tina & Nigel x
Many thanks for all your help. The tent was absolutely fantastic and really well received. Your chaps did a first class job. My thanks to you all and well done. Kind regards, Fergus.
Hi Katherine, I just wanted to say how much the tents were admired over the weekend. The party was such a brilliant success; I don’t think that the teenagers could believe the tents – especially the little ‘chill-out tent’ with masseuses and glitter tattoos. The place looked absolutely magical – it is always so great when something that you have planned and looked forward to exceeds expectations. Your ‘erection specialists’ (our 16 year old son wants one of those T shirts!) were really great and very efficient. A pleasure to have around the place. A number of people have asked for your details. With very best wishes, Karen
Dear Katherine the Great! Goodness me, we must have lost count of how many comments there were on the tents! As you know, for Matt and me there was only ever one Tent Company to use for our special day – no-one else comes close. Your tents are sensational and so are you. I was so sorry to have missed you on the Friday but Matt also wanted to dress the tables himself as a surprise for me and I managed to keep my emotions in check all day except when I saw the tent in all it’s glory. Thank you, thank you Katherine, you have been so supportive to us over the last year and especially to me. How boring marquees were before you came along. Many people said on Saturday how they’d like to move in and live there which has to be the greatest compliment! Please will you also thank your magnificent team. This isn’t the end though, just the beginning and I know we’ll be in touch very soon. Much love, Matt and Rebecca xxx.
Thank you for helping make a wonderful party on Saturday. All the guests were stunned by the setting and it was quite magical. Best wishes, Janet
Dearest Katherine, thank you, thank you, thank you for contributing to the best day of my life. The whole experience of you and your company was wonderful from start to finish. On returning from our honeymoon, we read all the letters sent to Ma & Dad. Everyone mentioned the tent with words such as “magical” and “incredible” and “warm” and “atmospheric”. It was such a major factor in making Charlie and my wedding the amazing event that it was. I’m so grateful and would recommend you in an instant. Thank you again so much. Much love, Liv.
Thank you so much for all the hard work you and your team put into the wedding tents for us. They looked absolutely wonderful and were totally unique. The combination of the two different styles worked so well and everyone was really impressed by the look of it all. With love, Olivia
Once again I wanted to extend a huge thank you for your tent for Small Wonder Festival. It was so fantastic once again and we have again had a lot of feedback about your palatial tent and how it contributed to the atmosphere of the whole event. Thank you very much indeed and very best wishes, Colin.
The tent was WONDERFUL! Everyone was amazed and entranced by it. It looked truly stunning and provided the perfect setting for our celebration. I could hardly believe my eyes when it was ready – it looked JUST as planned but even better. Your team was so impressive too – professional, hard-working, pleasant and friendly. In addition to our main celebration, we had a lunch and supper for friends and family in the tent, including a family friend celebrating her 13th birthday. I doubt she will forget that birthday for some time to come! I told everyone who asked about the tent how impressive you were, and offered to pass on contact details. Several clearly thought I was joking when I said we had visited you at your base on a farm in East Sussex. Thank you so much – it was EXACTLY what I wanted. Best wishes, Claire
