With a family wedding to plan, and a marquee to be erected in our Chelsea garden, we turned to the professionals: Countess Marquees. The garden posed several problems - it is narrow and has two large trees and we wanted these to be inside the marquee. We also wanted strands of ivy strung on wires across the ceiling as a decorative element, and green carpet to mimic the lawn we were covering up.
Countess Marquees found solutions to all the problems, put up & decorated & later removed the marquee on schedule, with a helpful and organised team, and overcame any glitches as they arose. They found extra-narrow tables so we could fit in more guests, and sourced very efficient and quiet heaters for background warmth. I cannot recommend this company too highly, and we also received many appreciative comments on the day from our guests.
