We took over Abbas Marquees in 2004. By then, it was an established marquee hire company that had been running for over twenty years. We saw the opportunity to really build on this, introducing a more diverse range of styles, including nordic tipis, overhang tents , vintage pole marquee , stretch tents and most recently the Cruck tent available from our sister company. As we have catering backgrounds, we really understand how to make a celebration work – and a lot of that comes down to really listening to the customer and delivering what they want.
Abbas Marquees specialises in weddings, and we’re delighted to have just won the Best Marquee Provider in the Country 2017 at the Wedding Industry Awards – again. It’s a great accolade and testament to the hard-working team behind the scenes.
The Abbas team is made up of the wedding and events co-ordinators in the office, the crew who travel around setting up the marquees and fittings, and the specialist team of carpenters, electricians and builders. Between us, we make sure that you get exactly the wedding you want. Many of us have worked with the Abbas Marquee family for over five years – because we love it here, and we hope that our enthusiasm comes through!
In the office, we’re always here to talk through your ideas and requirements – and we’ll be there with you at every stage. The crew have lots of experience of assembling and fitting out the marquees (in all weathers and all terrains…). Most of them are MUTA StructureSafe and first aid trained – all of them are cheerful, polite, and smartly-turned out in our Abbas uniform. The tents are similarly spotless. We maintain all our kit in-house, aiming to have everything looking as new, every time.
As well as the in-house team, we work with a tried-and-trusted group of local businesses including florists, caterers, musicians, DJs, and pyrotechnicians. We have a great address book; and whatever sort of entertainment or catering you want, we can source it.
Each event is a new one. Your wedding or other celebration will never look as if it’s been lifted from someone else’s party – your event is designed especially for you. We strive to offer a genuinely bespoke service for all of our clients whilst always working to the simple ethos – we want your party to be perfect.
To plan your perfect party, please get in touch with us. Whatever your ideas, we’ll make them happen!
