What a year 2020 has been! Katherine was amazing throughout the whole experience, offering her creative genius to provide us with the most memorable and unique wedding marquee for our micro-wedding. She and her team were outstanding throughout, they are the best!
Marina and Brendan ★★★★★
Arabian Tents were outstanding from start to finish. They couldn’t have been more accommodating when we scaled down our wedding due to Covid, and created the most magical setting for our micro wedding. Every little touch was meticulously thought through, from the layout of the outside furniture to the placement of each fairy light in the tent. Our guests all commented on the wonderful Cornish Cream interior of the tent and it felt as though we had to been transported back in time. The set up and dismantling of the tent was unobtrusive and professionally managed, and Katherine made us feel at ease with every query we had, suggesting expert suppliers and providing detailed plans throughout.
We had a stunning themed marquee for a summer drinks party in our London garden. Katherine helped us make optimum use of the space and her team were brilliant in both the set-up and de-rigging. The company were a joy to deal with – very professional and efficient - and all the team went out of their way to go the extra mile for us. We are very happy repeat customers.
Ysabel Gummer (Haeffele)★★★★★
From our initial meeting with Katherine it was clear that she understood our requirements and guided us through their offering to give us a number of options to choose from. We didn't feel any pressure to make a quick decision and she was always available to answer any questions. The team who erected the marquee were cheerful and friendly and couldn't do enough to make sure everything was perfect. All in all a very satisfying experience
Arabian Tents at House of Hud gave me the marquee of my dreams, I had been saving their images on instagram for some time and the final tent in Cornish Cream lining was even better than I expected. The team sourced the perfect trestle tables and chairs for the event and were very clear about where best to put it on the site we were using. Everybody at the wedding was wowed by the beauty of the tent, and it provided the perfect atmosphere for on hell of a party
House of HUD provided THE MOST incredible lighting for our woodland wedding; guests didn’t stop talking about how magical it made it feel. Jezz was passionate and dedicated, and helped to turn our basic vision into something unforgettable. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and went above and beyond to provide a fabulous service. He liaised with our venue to ensure that he complied with their restrictions and remained flexible throughout. I could not recommend more highly!!
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
From the moment we had contact with Jeremy I knew we were in safe hands. We wanted a Moroccan themed wedding with no white and that is what we got. Jeremy travelled all the way from Cornwall to meet us at our wedding venue 9 hours away. He completely got our vision and made it a reality. We will forever be great full and can’t thank this company enough for their enthusiasm, reliability and warmth. You deserve to win big and good luck from The Hodgson x
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
Jeremy Fifield at the House of Hud is insanely kind, caring, understanding, passionate and most of all...technically on point! He created the most beautiful Middle Eastern vision in my home. I know clients with a budget are harder than clients with deep pockets, unfortunately I was the former. A terraced house in Streatham to host a wedding reception is not an easy task. Jeremy and team us feel 'once in a lifetime' special and gave us a rolls Royce service despite our modest means - thank you xx
Excellent in all fields - could not fault them
We absolutely loved working with House of Hud and the finished article was so beautiful. They were able to take a plain and slightly old marquee and make it look beautiful, modern and bright. We had so many compliments on our decor and it was absolutely down to them. I especially want to mention Jeremy and his team, who were fantastic - responsive on email and on the day were committed to making sure everything looked perfect in our eyes (even though they were working in the pouring rain!).
Jeremy was brilliant. He interpreted the brief perfectly, and really got what I was trying to achieve, helping to choose furniture/items that would really enhance and compliment the venue. He went above and beyond, staying much longer than planned setting up to make sure he got everything just right, and helped us with our own decorations. He is very dedicated and a perfectionist! He was a lovely person to have around too. I can't recommend him and his team enough
Katherine and the team helped myself and my partner to achieve the most amazing marquee for our wedding. What we wanted to create was unique and highly bespoke, but there wasn’t one thing that they couldn’t make happen. It wasn't just the Marquee itself, but they also helped to decorate the entire outside areas of Fawsley Hall, completely transforming the spaces. The planning and set up teams could not have been more imaginative, kind, helpful and polite. A truly inspiring company
House of Hud are the best suppliers we have ever come across. They go above and beyond to ensure their clients are happy and offer the most beautiful marquees.
The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, entering into the spirit of the event. We were given the opportunity to make informed choices concerning all the details of the marquee and what was inside it. On the day guests were astounded by the spectacle of the Arabian tent and many said they felt like they were in a different country / world as it provided such a magical atmosphere. It really made our day.
I cannot describe how happy my clients and all guests were when they arrived and saw the marquee. All of them would stand at the deck and simply admire it. One of our guests who runs a big movie production company arrived and she was standing looking at the marquee and all she told her husband was - “This is what I what I wish for!”. This was definitely the most beautiful marquee they had ever seen. The team was fabulous. Polite, cordial, hardworking and very professional
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.
Thanks you for your e-mail and very sorry not having written to you sooner to say how great it was and how much we loved the tent! It was like having a personal nightclub and everyone enjoyed themselves enormously. Your colleagues who came to install were also really brilliant. More than being courteous and professional, they were very kind to my sister's children, who honestly were not helping matters at all by running in and out of the tent, in a state of great excitement, as it was going up!
With huge thanks to all your team,
Gemma Steve, The Jockey Club ★★★★★
Thank you so much for all your teams hard work and skill in transforming our ‘beer tent’ into a Arabian themed area. I have received numerous comments from customers praising the transformation of the area. I have attached some pictures I thought you may like to see.
The detail that has gone into the design of the lining and furniture is very impressive.
The staff in general did a great job and kept cheerful even when they were still on site at 8pm at night on the Wednesday. Nothing was too much trouble and they worked with the onsite team effectively and were professional at all times.
Jane Clarke ★★★★★
The party was simply amazing. The tents wowed everyone and made the party feel so special and individual. ALL your staff were so polite and delightful and worked very hard in such heat.
The relaxed, timeless environment of the tent was the perfect setting for our family luncheon.
Everyone glowed with the gorgeousness of it - and even the teenagers thought it was fab, which was quite an achievement.
It was literally the best day of our lives.
The Secret Door went down an absolute storm, as did the themed loo's (can't imagine many brides get compliments on the toilets at their wedding!).
Feedback from guests was that it was head and shoulders above any other wedding they had ever been to!
Dimitris at Infiniti Event Management ★★★★★
To say your marquee created the ultimate wow factor is actually an understatement. It absolutely blew everybody away....Mark & Paula's guests had never seen anything this stunning before, and said it was the best house party EVER!!
I'd like to thank Jonny, Lee and everybody in your team for such a fantastic and hugely professional effort, both on the build-up, during the actual marquee build and yesterdays take-down. The build team really were amazingly accommodating towards all the little details I requested during the set-up, and nothing was too much trouble.
On behalf of myself and my client I'd like to say a very big thank you. I have no doubt that I will be using your services and fantastic marquee structures and interiors in the future.
Festival Organiser ★★★★★
As a backstage artists' area these tents are pretty much perfect as a sumptuous, relaxing area as even the most jaded of performers can't help but appreciate the riot of colour and fun they create.
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 everyones faces as they walked in again I would be ecstatic, they were truly amazed!
Luke and Jess ★★★★★
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 cant 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.
Kate and Corin ★★★★★
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.
Karen and Rick ★★★★★
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.
Leslie Plumb ★★★★★
Belated but never the less sincere thanks for providing such fantastic marquees for Karen and Ricks 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 couldnt fault the entire process at all! I hope youre very well and Ill 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
Tina & Nigel ★★★★★
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
Matt and Rebecca ★★★★★
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
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
Hi Katherine, Apologies for radio silence. I’ve only just recovered and put the house back together, a week later. We had a really fantastic night. The tent and interiors were stunning and it only started to rain as the last guests left at 4am!
The crew were great. Lovely guys. The tent was of really good quality and it was warm on the night even though outside it was breezy. Jeremy was particularly brilliant and was so re-assuring to have around. He also brought those large plastic rugs which looked great. The wow factor was brilliant. I became quite blasé about it but every new arrival was so impressed and the lighting in particular was perfect. If anything we had too much furniture…but then we did have 88 people in that space and it worked really well.
All members of the crew were polite & helpful and reassuring, incl Jennie at your office who called in on Friday evening. All in all brilliant venue and great service. Thanks so much Katherine. The only photos I have, have people in them so far. But If I find one without, I’ll send on to you. Best wishes & many thanks, Fiona
Jane Jervoise ★★★★★
Dear Katherine, Everything was a great success. All our guests loved the tent, which fitted into the garden perfectly. We loved the Arabian furniture. It fitted the tent well and was used by guests at both parties.
I found some runners at John Lewis for the tables (if anyone asks you again they have a choice of colours) and the trestles looked wonderful with vases of simple garden flowers. The see-through wall was particularly admired. The lanterns did not arrive but the garden furniture with your cushions on looked fine. The Cornish Cream lining was perfect. Your staff were unfailingly helpful and cheerful. How hard they work! and always with a smile.
They knew exactly what they were doing and did it so well. I loved watching the tassels being tied and the way the uprights are hidden by drapes - a touch we particularly appreciated. The cushions are a perfect finishing touch, and we liked the final touch of rugs and a chest in the corner. Your customer service seems very efficient. You always returned my calls quickly and everything worked well when it arrived, which is not always the case! I told the crew at the time that we have never before had a tent put up so quickly and efficiently. Thank you very much. A good experience all round! With best wishes and many thanks.
William & Lisa and Annabel ★★★★★
Hello Katherine, We just wanted to drop you a line and say how lovely your tent was for William and Lisas wedding. Everyone found it beautiful; the linings, the chill out area and all the furniture really added to the wonderful atmosphere of the day.
You and Jennie were very helpful and positive to deal with. It was fantastic to deal with a company whose attitude is to find a solution, not see a problem! Jez and his crew who came to put up and take down the tent were really amazing. Very helpful, professional and good humoured. We had every confidence that they would do a thorough job. Thank you for helping to make the day so memorable! With best wishes; William & Lisa and Annabel
The Crew - what a great gang you have! Ross was so chipper, organised, brilliant at communicating and willing to go the extra mile. He came back the following day, (on his day off apparently) and put in an extra 5 hours or so of his time to really make sure everything was perfect.
Anouska (not sure of the spelling there) was also lovely. The whole crew worked together really happily and were still going at 11pm on the main set-up day. They were also great with our other crew of lighting guys (who clearly werent as skilled in connecting with people...shy perhaps!?) as well as a local lady (who takes her job looking after the pavilion and cricket pitch very seriously) who decided to come down to the site as the guys were setting up and protest at the position! They took it all in their stride, kept smiling and made the whole process super smooth for us. Grace was also an absolute star - the fact that she was one of the crew meant she knew exactly how to make the tents work to their best. She was hands on, really friendly and got stuck in at every moment. Brilliant!
What we liked about the tent, furnishings, decor and recommendations - It was all amazing! I know thats probably not the most helpful, but truly it was. I loved the attention to detail, that made it feel so lavish. The tassle ties on the drapes, the staggered formation of the dancing area into the bar, the warm glow of the lamps on the coffee tables and the door...the secret door. This was a true hit! I am so glad we could have it in the end, so thank you for that. Everyone has remarked on the door...this sense of entering the party. It was such a quirky thing, but was used to great effect - Our nephew (aged 9) took it upon himself to be the door keeper as everyone arrived - asking each guest to make a wish before the door was opened for them. We laid out our champagne table just behind it so on entering you were immediately greeted with a saucer of champagne and a sense of the party space where the fun was going to happen. The tents were beautiful - sumptuous, elegant and quirky all at the same time. The whole place oozed love, care and attention to detail which is what, I imagine, you have poured into it. The bombay boudoir lining also served our photobooth perfectly...creating an awesome back drop. Ive attached a pic of that.
Guest feedback - Most have commented on the beautiful atmosphere of the tents. How exotic and lush they were. Nearly everyone has mentioned the Secret Door and what fun it was...something that they will all remember for a long time. The fact that we had bothered to even think about how the tents looked was also said. I think often people think the marquee doesnt really matter...but thats because they dont notice them. Your tents will never go unnoticed and will always help to create that special, unique and lavish feel.
Thanks again Katherine and well be telling EVERYONE about Arabian Tents!
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 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.
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 couldnt have gone any better.
The Tent company were wonderful, thank you very,very much, all our guests 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.
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.
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.
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.
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....
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 dont 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.... 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.
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 couldnt 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.
Rita and Mike ★★★★★
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.
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. Its so sad now that everything is over but I hope one day Ill be able to have another party and use The Arabian Tent Company again! Many thanks to you and your team.
Belinda & Manil ★★★★★
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
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 didnt go unnoticed.
Please also pass on our thanks to the team who set it up and took it down as well. Many thanks, Bobby
Walley family ★★★★★
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.
Jacqui & Paul ★★★★★
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
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.
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.
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
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.

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.
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.
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!
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
Hi Katherine, Despite probably the heaviest rain for several weeks we had a brilliant time on Saturday! Your tent was a real talking point, with many of our friends asking about your company so I hope you get some future work - I mentioned the TWGGS connection as we know a lot of people who have had and still have daughters there!
The sofas and cushions, lighting and drapes all create a very relaxed atmosphere and really set the tone for a great evening and the stretch tent allows for complete cover without the enclosed feel of a normal marquee. Your crew were lovely, hardworking and very friendly - 25 years younger and I would be applying for a job!
Nick did a great job with the music and got everyone dancing across the age groups which was lovely to see. Im not sure I can make any recommendations for improvement as you seem to be doing a fantastic job and Im sure you will continue to be a great success in future ventures abroad. We will certainly recommend you to anyone that asks and should our daughter decide to settle down (pigs are currently swooping around) we will be in touch again! Many thanks for doing such a great job! Best wishes
Hi Katherine, It looked so beautiful. Everybody commented on how amazing it looked. Thank you again for all your help it was truly magical. Best wishes Miranda

Hello Katherine, the party was absolutely fantastic and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone that attended. Guests felt really relaxed in the Bombay Boudoir interior and commented all night – I especially loved the ceiling lamps!
Your customer service was brilliant, finding a way to accommodate us when the dates changed. Once again, I personally would like to thank you and your team for all the help in getting this fabulous tent for the date that we wanted. Best regards, Bryony Worthy

Hi Katherine, Just tried to call you to thank you and all the team for everything you put together for the party. The guests were absolutely amazed at the creation! and the stunning effect the tents and the lighting created.
It all fitted so well into the garden. Thank you also for all your time and especially coming down on Friday to add the finishing touches, it really did help with the sides as though dry on Saturday night it was cooler. The crew were all were extremely polite and helpful – I always like it when staff arrive and want to shake hands with you and clearly state their names. It gives you confidence in them - not misplaced. All of the seemed to want to go the extra mile to make things look right.
They also took care of the plants - no easy feat with what they had to achieve. What all the guests said was that it was such a unique experience coming into the tent - and it particular the way the tents flowed into the garden. Lighting was spectacular and just added to the ambiance. They were all completely bowled over by the whole experience! I hope we will catch up soon - but many, many thanks for absolutely everything. Best wishes David and Judy
Hi Katherine, Thanks so much for all of your contribution to the wedding.
The furniture was great and ever more so because the weather held out! Loved the printed deck chairs! Thanks so much.
Dear Katherine, I just wanted to let you see the final result! It is truly magical and even more magnificent than I had anticipated!
Both your teams were outstanding - I cannot commend them more highly, particularly Jezze, Grace & Celia who worked tirelessly until after 9pm last night to create such a magical place in my back yard!! I cant wait for Saturday now. Thank you! Lizelle

Dear Katherine, As I said to Jeremy when he came to collect the marquee yesterday....Cant I keep it please? I had fallen in love with it! All my guests were impressed with it. I have a nice wide garden and it sat beautifully along the hedge so that you could appreciate the shape and detail.
The female guests particularly loved it! Infact- a few diehard party animals carried on dancing in the marquee till 5am! We saw the sun come up! The crew you had sent to install the marquee on Friday were wonderful. Polite, relaxed, professional. It was a long day for them -but they were all in good spirits and uncomplaining. We had a slight hitch when it was discovered that the wrong flooring had been sent. But again-the correct flooring was dispatched and efficiently collected with no further delay.
The crew you sent yesterday to dismantle were equally professional but friendly and relaxed. You should be proud of your staff. What I was struck by was that all these kids were quite young...but they were all hard working and very friendly. I would happily recommend your company to anyone. I have been dealt with at all points in a professional manner and with charm. I do wish you continued success. Once again, Katherine- thank you for helping make the party super special. Fond regards, Pallu Patel.
Hi Katherine, Thanks for your email. The party was a great success and the tent looked great and received many compliments from the guests.
It was just what Richard and Samantha were looking for. Overall the tent and the furnishings were excellent and helped to create a very successful party. Thanks for your help, Tim.
Hi Katherine, Thanks again for an excellent service and the tent was amazing. Both parties went brilliantly. Many thanks again for all your ideas and support, Warm Wishes.
Dear Katherine, Thank you so much for allowing us to hire the wonderful Indian umbrellas, they were really special.
They looked amazing on the patio I am so glad the weather held that evening because the party really began so well outside. We think the umbrellas and bunting gave the evening a massive step up and gave it such a good atmosphere. Everybody loved them.

Hi Katherine, The tent was absolutely beautiful... Your help / contact with your office / staff on site all exceptional. I have given your company & product 5 stars on all counts!
We brought a massive dresser from our restaurant to put all the vintage crockery on & oversized clocks/ tin tables / old trunks etc etc. The look was "elegant but vintage quirky chill out coffee & cakes"! as an escape from the noisy main tent. It all looked stunning.
Here is a photo as a taster:

I would just like to say a massive thank you for providing such a wonderfully magical tent this weekend.
The Bombay boudoir was just exquisite, perfect for celebrating my graduation! Everyone had such a marvelous time and all commented on how amazing the tent was, it really created that wow feeling. The crew who put up and took down the tent were so friendly and professional, you could really see they took pride in what they were doing.

I am forever thinking of my party four years ago, when I hired those two gorgeous marquees and your guys who spent the day erecting (that's what it said on their T shirts) this wonderful scene down on Nook Beach ~ why didnt I have a video of it ~ the evening unfolded with the huge yellow sunset shining down reflecting onto the lake close by ~ the colourful Indian umbrellas gently moving in the slight breeze, could have been by the side of the Ganges.
I placed one of your black Indian beds way into the wild tall grasses, it looked very special as guests sat there, magic was in the air.
As the sunset shone down it was like spot lights onto a stage ~ it was amazing. I love every thought of how you all had helped me set this scene, so once again Very Many ThankX

My daughter Katy Simpson has just had her 21st Birthday at home using The Arabian Tent Company - Id like to say a HUGE thank you to Katherine and her team. Superb service, attentive, organised, on time and the outcome was fantastic. Id recommend them to anyone. Thank you again for such a stress free service :))
Dear Katherine, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you (The Arabian Tent Co.) and especially Jeremy for the spectacular garden decorating that you provided for the surprise birthday party we had on Friday.
I hasten to add this was not the first time I have used your company and when the opportunity presented itself to have an event that would be memorable The Arabian Tent Company was my first choice because of my previous experience with them. I knew that once contacting Jeremy (who I had previously dealt with) all my worries would disappear as the pressure of organising a surprise birthday party is difficult enough and with the reassurance of The Arabian Tent Co. at the forefront I knew everything would run smoothly.
Once contacting Jeremy he made an onsite visit despite it being miles away, liaised weekly with up to date ‘photos of the endless possibilities that could be achieved in the area to be decorated – nothing is impossible for him ! He not only decorated the extensive garden with amazing lights, furniture and marquees but the garage that was to be used as a dining room.
The members of team that arrived with Jeremy were polite, courteous and professional at all times. They all respected other people’s property, religion and beliefs. Whilst on site there was no time wasting just doing a fantastic job that their passion for their work was obvious. Everything looked beautiful. I only wish you were there to see the end result, it really was breath-taking.
I will certainly be keeping your number for the next time. Please pass on my gratitude to the entire team. Until the next time.

I have to thank you for the most fabulous, beautiful tent last weekend from you for my big birthday.
It was far more spectacular in the flesh than any of your pictures, and your staff could not have been more helpful, polite and professional - the whole Arabian Tent experience was everything I could have hoped for and more. Thank you so much for making my birthday weekend so wonderful.
Dear Katherine, A few things to say thank you for - firstly, your amazing, incredible tent. It was more than I could have wished for, and the pictures on your website make it look stunning, but it was even better in reality.
I was completely blown away by how beautiful it was, and of course, almost every guest commented on how stunning it was. The whole set-up was so efficient - your crew were lovely to have around, and very friendly, polite and professional. You have obviously built an amazing business, to be hugely congratulated, the whole Arabian Tent experience was incredible. But secondly, your recommendation of the DJ was just FAB. He was absolutely brilliant.
It turned out we had masses in common, and at 5am my husband discovered he had been the person who had sung in the church at the wedding of a very old friend of ours only a month ago. I cannot thank you enough. I think it is safe to say I had the best birthday weekend I could have possibly wished for, and I am so grateful to you and your team for everything you had to do with that. I wish you every success with your continuing business, and if I ever need another fabulous marquee, I know where I will be coming. Very many thanks and very best wishes,
Dear Katherine. Very many thanks for all the sterling work your team put in on our behalf to make our wedding celebration so very special. The marquee was simply stunning. I don't think anyone had seen anything quite like it before.
Your staff were magnificent. Everyone was delightful to have around. Leah was tireless, efficient, proactive and a pleasure to deal with, and she was a geat asset to our party. Jennie Stogdon is a complete star, highly efficient, but also full of character and good humour. We would have liked to have seen you in person, if only so that you could see at first hand what you had created! Thanks too for introducing us to Jemima, whose food was quite sensational - she is hugely, professional, talented and passionate about what she does, and she produced fabulous south Indian cuisine for a party which was half Tamil: and they were all massively impressed. She is also fun - a one-off character who we have come to like a lot.
And Nick Morray was super too: the dance-floor heaved with action. I gather he is godfather to your daughter - a good choice - a delightful man! So, with your tent and your connections, a truly memorable and triumphant wedding celebration was delivered. A HUGE THANK YOU. With best wishes, Tim
