The largest collection of themed marquees in the UK
Springing from a love of outdoor parties, The Arabian Tent Company was founded in 2004 by Katherine Hudson.
The magic of festivals and marquee parties captured Katherine’s imagination, and ever since she has designed, created and executed luxury marquee weddings, VIP areas at festivals across the UK, and brought delight and wonder to home celebrations.
This collection of unique marquees to hire are not confined to Arabian influences, we have a huge array of interiors with a multitude of themes, as well as the ethnic influences that originally inspired us.
These include an ‘Arts and Crafts’ William Morris style marquee interior, quintessentially English garden party marquees, tea party tents as well as the Arabic, Moroccan and Bollywood themes which were the original source of inspiration for the collection.

When we told Jeremy how we wanted our reception venue to be dressed he got it immediately. He pulled all our ideas together and created w wedding venue that literally couldn't have been more perfect. He went above and beyond for us. He is truly passionate about what he does. We didn't have a moment of concern throughout the whole planning process, it was smooth, everything was considered and explained... we really didn't worry about a single thing, we had complete faith in Jeremy and his team
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.
Would like to say thank you so much for the sterling work your team put in for our wedding. The Round Oyster is beautifully captivating! I don’t think anyone had seen anything quite like it before.
My husband and I are ex pats and travel around the world with his job and have been out of the country for the last six years. As such we needed to get a venue and supplier who could easily see our vision and help us create the perfect day. Katherine at House of HUD ticked all boxes. We instantly fell in love with the secluded idyllic location. It had everything we needed, we created our own stunning marquee and had use of a fantastic private party barn on site
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.... Dont be disappointed if the interior is not quite as youve envisaged..... Thankfully for both our sakes, that clearly was NOT the case.

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.
At Arabian Tents we are thinking about ways we can take responsibility for helping with our impact, finding ways to minimise it (ask for our eco-tips for this,) and providing an option to off-set for our clients where carbon still has to be spent.
We offset all our deliveries through tree planting, recycle, reuse and repurpose, and are always looking for ways to reduce waste onsite.
Our conscientious team can assist you in making the right decisions for your next event from sourcing battery generators to power it, locally sourced vegetarian food to feed guests, or carbon-offsetting schemes to plant a tree for each of your guests to nourish them into the future, you’ll enjoy the experience of working with us too.
So with an ethical, sustainable and aesthetic edge, you are in the most transformational and imaginative hands with The Arabian Tent Company.
