Marquee Hire Scotland


Hi Clarissa

I hope that things have settled down a little after the summer of madness. The wedding went very well and the “honeymoon” only ended a couple of weeks ago when Keren went back to California. I am going over a week from now.

Thank you for everything you all did to contribute to the success of the day, it proved to be a great success and I will definitely recommend Central Marquees to anyone I know looking to hire a marquee.

We wish you every success in the future and if ever the need arises, will be in touch

Kind Regards, David

Tarbert: David Dawson Bowman 12m x 9m Wedding Marquee – July 2014

We were very impressed with Central Marquees from the first meeting with Sam & Clarissa to the final day when the guys came to take the marquee away. Nothing was a problem, the positions of our Marquee was not the easiest, and to be honest I wouldn’t have been surprised if Sam had said it couldn’t be done, but no, it was and it was amazing. I would and have recommended you to people, and will continue to do so, it was a pleasure dealing with you. The team that came to erect the marquee were excellent, working into the evening to get everything just right. Fantastic service from the start to the finish.

Kind regards


Pamela Maccoll – Isle of Mull, Glengorm Castle June 2014

Hi Clarissa,

Thanks ever so much for an excellent and efficient job- well done! Great that you left extra bulbs, one was broken. Also many thanks for the extra window wall and lights, very kind. The marquee looks great and is very sturdy, I am sure Oscars birthday party will be a success!

Many, many thanks again,

see you Wednesday.

“We owe you a great deal of thanks for being central to a hugely successful day. Please see below for feedback:

Marquee: The Marquee was perfect for what we were after and was put up the day before efficiently and in consideration of what we were after. Given that we ended up with a much better marquee than we had planned through a generous offer, we were absolutely delighted. All was taken down the following day, again very efficiently and quickly.

Lighting: The lighting worked perfectly for our event, LED lights around the perimeter of the marquee giving plenty of light without being too bright or imposing.

Staff: This was the key point of success for our wedding, the staff were second to none. Throughout every step of the process. They listened and adapted to our requests while setting up and during the event they took a great deal of stress away from us by taking care of things without needing us to highlight them. Also the kitchen staff, the chef in particular, produced truly excellent food which both tasted and looked great. The staff serving food and drinks blended in with the guests and built up a great rapport with everyone there. Following the event, clean up and clear up was incredibly smooth and quick and we everything was left as it was found, if not better.”


“Thanks Sam; The Marquee you provided was beautiful and made our parents 50th Wedding Anniversary party just fantastic. The Marquee itself was perfect and the heating meant we were in the garden till 3:30am on a Sept evening! The team were very presentable and professional who erected and took down the marquee and your personal attention to customer satisfaction was brilliant.

Thanks so much we will definitely use you again and recommend you to friends and family.”


“I hope you are well, we have gladly filled out your questionnaire and want to thank you and the team once again for the assistance and support you gave us on our 50th party celebration. We were celebrating Hansel Alliances’ 50th birthday and our residents chose to have a marquee garden party for family and friends. Your services went above and beyond, from the site visit by Sam to the setting up and taking down after the event. The services were fantastic, everything we needed was supplied and we could had other services if we needed them, there was no stress involved and we were able to keep our residents up to date with what was happening. 10 out of 10 for customer service and quality of goods supplied. The marquee was a great success, it provided us with an area to dance, an area to eat and somewhere for people to sit together. Sam and I exchanged emails regularly and at one point we had to change the date of the celebration, but once again this was not a problem. There is nothing I would change about central-marquees. I would suggest however that you add a box for other comments as I would like to say a huge thank you to all concerned for helping us to make such a stressful day, we were so impressed we have now advertised the fact that we used Central-Marquees on our news page at”

“Lovely to hear from you! We heard of Central Marquees through the internet. The marquee supplied to us was incredibly good value for a 80 guest wedding. The marquee was delivered on time and on budget and the marquee was in excellent condition. The Central-Marquees team are always polite, helpful and cheerful. I would recommend you to family and friends and most importantly I have been recommending you to all clients.”



Mrs. Helen McKenzie-Smith – Lindores Abbey – 12m x 12m Traditional Style Marquee Hire – August 2013

“Thanks for all the help during the wedding. We heard from Central-Marquees through a recommendation, we were provided with a 6m x 9m traditional style marquee for 65+ guests. The services were appropriately priced and an excellent service was provided throughout. Central-Marquees were up to our standards, with timely delivery and getting the job done on time. We were relieved of pre-event stress as it was great to move the guests from the home to the marquee for all events. I would rate Central-Marquees 10/10 good quality, waterproof and a comfortable area. The marquee was good quality and excellent help was provided where needed – moving of the swings to make room for the marquee. I would recommend greatly to friends and family.”

“I thought the company was first class – product and service. Central Marquees provided an excellent front-to-back consultative solution which was tailored to our needs; this was important for us because when planning a wedding you want to limit your worry and put the trust and control in the hands of a professional.”



Mr. and Mrs. Kent – Helensburgh – 12m x 24m Traditional Style Marquee Hire – August 2013

Hi Sam, Clarissa and all at Central Marquees,

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the beautiful marquee that you provided for us on our wedding on the 6th July. We couldn’t have asked for a more fantastic venue and all who attended agreed. Your pictures of Pottie with the marquee are beautiful and my family and I are very touched that you are using one of the pictures as your cover picture. Thank you also for the lovely canvas that you sent us, we really appreciated it. I was wondering if you had any other pictures from the weekend as I would love to make a copy of them, ( if that is ok with you), to send to family members who were unable to make it?

Thank you again,

Alison, Fraser and all the Mackie and McKenzie family xx



Isle of Mull: 12m x 18m Traditional Style – Alison and Fraser – July 2013

“We provided the venue for a gala anniversary dinner which central marquees were the main organiser, we had 250 guests for an opening of a refurbished building. After discussion with central marquees about our requirements we received the appropriate size marquee with doors that suited the lay of the land. We simply got what is said on the tin! There was no messing around, no chasing back and forward. We agreed on the level of service and this was delivered. I was confident that all the T’s were crossed and I’s dotted – so no stress!! Central Marquees were very helpful, friendly and offered advice on getting the right marquee for our event. By hiring a marquee it gave me much greater flexibility in having the refreshments in a marquee outside the main building as it simply freed up more space. With the ever changing west of Scotland weather it also brought me piece of mind that if it did rain then I had a fantastic weather tight venue. We plan to develop our various sites out with teaching time to attract different events. When required Central Marquees will be called to assist us to deliver a first rate service for whatever the activity or event will be catering for.”
