The service has been exceptional! The marquee is good value for money and team who put the marquee up were polite and professional. We would recommend this company to everyone considering a party in their own home. I am already planning the next event! Thank you so much!!!
Sarisbury Green – 50th Birthday Party – January 2017
Some might avoid planning a party in the winter but this family were determined not to let a very special 90th birthday pass without a celebration and this lovely letter proves that you should not let the damp November days prevent you from holding a party;
Just a brief note to record our delight with the marquee you provided last weekend. This contributed greatly to the success of the party to celebrate my mother in law’s 90th birthday, despite the weather.
The quality of the tent was ably matched by the friendly efficiency of the team pitching and subsequently dismantling it. Please convey my thanks to Hugh and your erection team.
Hamble – November 2016
Thank you Southern Marquees for providing such a professional and helpful service. The marquee was perfect for our big day, it provided the perfect venue for our DJ and dancefloor (which our guests made great use of). We were extremely impressed with the service the guys who erected the marquee provided. They really went above and beyond to help us out with fixing our gazebo onto the side, when we came across issues. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who needs a marquee in the future.
Wedding – September 2016
Duncan and I were married at Bossington House on Saturday 6th August. We had the most perfect day and a huge part of that was down to the time, energy and attention that we received from both Mandy and Hugh at Southern Marquees throughout the whole build up to the wedding. For me personally, they were true gems, always on hand to answer questions, offer advice, and not only about the marquee, but with all areas of the wedding. Nothing was too much trouble, even inviting my Mum and I for tea. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with during what was sometimes a stressful time, and I literally cannot recommend their products and service highly enough. I will talk about Southern Marquees far and wide, and send heartfelt thanks to Mandy, Hugh and all their team.

Party – West Hill Park – August 2016
Just pausing for breath after last weekend!
Just a note to say thank you so much to you and all your team for making Saturday and Sunday such special days – everything went beautifully thanks to all your preparation and knowledge and the Marquee was beautiful.
We would highly recommend you without hesitation to anyone needing a marquee.
Maybe the next family wedding although we have told them both to elope!!!
Portchester – August 2016
We are hoping it will be a good day and that the weather will be kind to us. We’ve had so many conflicting reports regarding the weather, so fingers crossed.
I have to say the young men who came to put up the marquee were excellent, and a credit to your company, especially the supervisor (sorry I didn’t get his name). Nothing was too much trouble and they went about their work with pride and efficiency. Please pass on my sincere thanks for a job well done.
I will certainly try and get some photos for you.

Wedding – Stansted, Rowlands Castle – Sept 14
Many thanks for your excellent service. It made the whole planning of the
party so much easier.
From the beginning to the end I had no worries that everything would be
perfect, or would be put right if not. That is exactly how it was.
Our friends & family thought the marquee was beautiful and just the right
size. I did appreciate your humour & encouragement, & your son Mark & his
team were most efficient & agreeable. I have already recommended your
company to many of my friends for the future.
Many thanks – I am not planning a celebration for the foreseeable future –
but you never know!
Very best wishes

We just hired a marquee from Southern Marquees and they were just fantastic. From the overall booking process to update emails and the instillation it was just so professional – no hassle, no dramas just perfect! Thank you so much Southern Marquees for making our party such a massive success!
After working in the events arena for over 10 years I could not recommend Southern Marquees highly enough.
Party – Bursledon, Hampshire – July 14
Thank you so much for all your help with the wedding planning and for providing us with such a beautiful marquee! It was so kind of you to erect it slightly earlier and to help string up all the bunting – apologies if I was a bit demanding! The end result looked so much better than I’d ever envisaged and the whole day just blew my expectations. It really was the happiest day of our lives and thank you for helping make it possible. Love Fi & Rory

Wedding – Houghton Lodge, Stockbridge, Hampshire -May 2014
If you could have been a fly on the wall you would have been grinning ear to ear – everyone was mightily impressed with how nice the marquee was!
Wedding – Southampton – May 2014
We approached Southern Marquees firstly for our Golden Wedding celebrations and more recently for a family wedding reception.
From the outset they produced plans and suggestions and then put it all into practice exactly as we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble and continued liaison with the caterers resulted in a smoothly run and faultless occasion.
It was fascinating to see the speed with which the marquees were assembled by a team of young men and when they were later removed and packed away the garden looked quite bereft without them.
I cannot recommend Southern Marquees, with Hugh and Mandy and their team highly enough. Their professionalism, hard work and cheerfulness ensured we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves without a care in the world!
Wedding – Titchfield, Hampshire – May 2104
