A Short Bit About me

I'm Spencer King, an ex-marquee erector. This blog is designed to help those running a hire business or thinking of starting. I don't claim to know everything, I'm just trying to help people avoid the mistakes I made! Check out our event planning section for advice on planning your own marquee event. Please contact us if we can help or offer advice in any way.


Tip for weddings

If you supply wedding marquees then it’s useful to have a few wedding tips to pass on. They aren’t going to win you any jobs (as you’re probably already there with the marquee by this stage) but it does help to project a professional appearance and reassure the customer that you know what you’re talking about (which can then lead to recommendations for future jobs)

The best tip that I passed on was for emotional bride/grooms who struggle to look in to each others eyes without bursting in to tears/laughter. Just tell them to focus on a point on the wall slightly to one side of their other half, as far as everyone else in the church can see they’re still looking in to each others eyes but it makes a world of difference to their emotions.

Weddings are emotional occasions that can make people nervous and slightly unpredictable (just ask my mate who in his words at the alter is married ‘in dogs holy law’!) so any advice you can give to help is usually well received.

As you may have noticed the design of our website has changed recently, there’s still work to do on it but if you find anything wrong or that could do with improving please let me know. There will be a new event planning advice section where I will be writing articles and case studies on particular aspects of planning an event, for experienced marquee hirers it will just seem common sense but for anyone new hopefully there will be some interesting reading there.

Thanks for reading

Spencer
