"I cannot thank you and your team enough for the brilliant help you gave us throughout the run-up to my daughter's wedding at Smedmore House. With gale force winds gusting up to 60mph I feared the tipis could not be erected and the wedding day ruined but you were absolutely brilliant continually monitoring the situation. Thank you so much - you are true professionals."
Graham Thomas - Daughter's Wedding in Kimmeridge, Dorset, 2019
"Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for the marquee! It looked amazing and we were so happy with everything. Really appreciate all the hard work the guys did assembling it! We also want to thank you for the communication we had with you prior to the event and your quick responses. It made everything very easy for us."
Kirsten Clunies-Ross - Wedding in Studland, Dorset, 2019
"We just wanted to drop you a line to say a HUGE thank you for absolutely everything you so kindly did for our wedding. Without you guys we wouldn’t have had a wedding and the whole team were just fantastic and so kind at every moment. We couldn’t get over how hard you all worked in the lead up to get everything done in time and your patience in getting all the small last minute requests/changes made and done in time was amazing."
Victoria Stratton - Wedding in Whitchurch, Hampshire, 2018
"It was lovely to work with you last weekend, thank you for all of your hard work. A massive thank you to the team and in particular Ed, who was a superstar! Very much hope to work with you again soon, I’ll certainly be telling all of my clients about Oakleaf!"
Jane Riddell - Planned for Perfection, Wedding Iwerne Minster, 2018
"I have friend's daughters who are getting married and have been highly recommending Oakleaf....you were inspirational in helping us pull together a crazy idea."

Karen Fisher - Daughter's wedding in Sherborne, Dorset, 2017
"I want to thank you for the care and attention that you gave us in the run up to Sophie's wedding. The last minute changes and additions were handled calmly and efficiently. Dave and his team did a brilliant job setting up and the marquee looked splendid for the occasion. A great time was had by all!"
Michael Weston - Daughter's wedding in Trent, Dorset, 2017
"You have been such a pleasure to work with and made the organisation so smooth and stress free. You and Ed were amazing on the night and your team putting up and taking down the marquee were also great. Special thanks to Ed for the lighting and you for the martini glasses. We couldn't have asked for more."
Madeline Bracken - Daughter's 21st party in Poole, Dorset, 2015
"The team that came out were polite, friendly, hardworking and very accommodating of my wishes for how things were to be set up. And their patience and understanding was very much appreciated as I was fairly stressed and felt a bit like a fish out of water, having never had to oversee such a massive event! We would definitely recommend you to other friends/family in need of a marquee."
Natalie Murray - Wedding near Bath, Somerset, 2015
"It was a truly great party and made so easy to organise by your skill, energy and willingness. Nothing seemed too difficult and you understood exactly what we were looking for from the very start. You deserve every success for your business and I hope to see your name more and more frequently in the area. Thank you."
James Mackain-Bremner - Daughter's wedding near Gillingham, Dorset, 2011
"I wanted to write to say a massive thanks to you all at Oakleaf, you did an amazing job and the marquee was perfect, it is great to be able to trust a company and know that everything will be done to a high standard. I know the owners of Harry Warren were full of praise too. From the putting up and pulling down you paid attention to detail and all of the team were patient with me and worked really hard. I would gladly recommend you to anyone who may need a marquee in the area in the future. We had the perfect wedding day and were incredibly lucky with the weather too!"
Sally Forden - Wedding in Studland, Dorset, 2012
"Thank you so so much for the wonderful job you and your team did. You were so helpful and easy going. I've attached a few photographs in case you wish to use any for your portfolio or website."
Annie Delves-Broughton - Wedding near Sherborne, Dorset, 2013
"Once again we would like to express our thanks to you. The marquee was great, although the day was very hot, by late afternoon the marquee was in the shade of the house so the guests didn't overheat during the meal and the evening was a very pleasant temperature with the sides off. I hope that this leads to more work at Dillington House."
Ken Nichols - Daughter's wedding in Ilminster, Somerset, 2013
"I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job with the marquee, it looked even better than I imagined and we were all so pleased with it! You guys have been great to work with from beginning to end, and I look forward to hopefully working with you again sometime soon - my sister caught the bouquet so who knows, it could be sooner than we think ;-)"
Lucy Guest - Wedding in Stoke St Mary, Somerset, 2013
"Your outfit exemplifies perfectly the qualities people in the service industry need to have - I really can't tell you how amazing it was to have such extraordinarily helpful people around. And I meant it when I said that if you ever have enquirers dithering about whether to use you or not, just put them in touch with me and I will tell them exactly what the experience was like. What I won't tell them - and which impressed me HUGELY - was that you didn't press us for a deposit knowing it was for a 100th birthday that might or might not happen. Quite unnecessarily nice of you but so much appreciated!"
Elizabeth Moyse - Party in Mere, Dorset, 2012
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Ed and the team for all your efforts. Everything went off without a hitch and they had a fantastic day. The marquee was perfect with the three sections and it all worked really well. Your team worked non stop in all that heat both erecting and removing it and now you’d hardly know it had been there. Very impressive!"
Jane Purcell - Daughter's Wedding in Sherborne, Dorset, 2018
"Wow I do not know how to start to say thank you for all you and your team did for us. Our wedding was EPIC! I know we're biased but I think it was made by the amazingness of Oakleaf! The marquee was so wonderful and the decoration completely what I'd imagined."
Lucy Cozens - Wedding in Hermitage, Dorset, 2017
"Thank you so much for your help organising this - it’s always so painless!
The marquee looked superb and Jessica was blown away."
Chris Davies - Surprise party in Buckhorn Weston, Dorset, 2017
"We would like to say thank you so much for the fantastic marquee and accessories you supplied for our wedding. It looked absolutely beautiful and was far better than we could have wished for. We had a really super day and the marquee just made it even more perfect."
Jaz Willmore - Wedding in Bridport, Dorset, 2017
"I would just like to thank you so much for the marquee it looked amazing! It truly blew us all away and we had some very impressed directors and investors. They were so impressed that they want us to have another next year!"
Kerry Weaver - Corporate party in Weymouth, Dorset, 2015
"I just wanted to write and say how pleased we were with the marquee you provided for Barry and Zoe's wedding in Lyme Regis on 8th August. The people who erected and dismantled it were really helpful and efficient, everything was as agreed, it looked beautiful and all the guests commented on how lovely it was."
Jackie Evans - Wedding in Lyme Regis, Dorset, 2015
"Thank you very much for all your team's hard work. They were great, putting it up and taking it down in the rain, dealing with the bunting, and all in such good humour. During the reception we opened up the windows and were half in and half out which worked wonderfully. We have had countless letters and phone calls saying how great the marquee looked with its lanterns, bunting, ivy, lights, flowers, straw bales and the external canopies with some saying it looked from a distance like a medieval castle. If we ever need a marquee again we won't bother going round the circuit but will come straight to you and will send the message out!"
Belinda Wingfield Digby - Wedding near Sherborne, Dorset, 2015
"We had a fabulous party on Saturday. Thank you so much for a stunning marquee as well as all the extras - the wow factor was definitely present and lots of people wanted a recommendation! Please pass on our very grateful thanks to your team for all their attention to detail and hard work."
Jennie Nott-Bower - Party near Sherborne, Dorset, 2014
"I just wanted to say how impressed we were with your team who worked so hard putting up the marquee and making the whole place look so beautiful. Everything worked brilliantly and the wedding went off perfectly. Dismantling was also effected efficiently and tirelessly. You have an excellent team!"
Frances Walker - Daughter's wedding in Sherborne, Dorset, 2014
"We just wanted to say a massive thank you for the service that we've received from Oakleaf from start to finish while planning our day. The communication in both email and person has been superb and your enthusiasm for answering all of our daft questions has been much appreciated! The team that came to set up the marquee were professional and hardworking, particularly on such a ridiculously hot day and on such uneven terrain! Most importantly the marquee, all of it's funky furnishings and extra bits and pieces looked great and helped us to create the atmosphere that we'd hoped for on the day - it was perfect."
Amy Forrest - Wedding in Bere Regis, Dorset, 2012
"Thank you for all your help over the past few months and for the excellent service you provided us with. We had an absolutely amazing day."
Bryony Clark - Wedding in Chicksgrove, Wiltshire, 2012
"Jimmy and I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to you for our beautiful marquee. I saw it arrive and it was assembled by your team with expert precision! I also really appreciate you liaising with Margot to get everything where it needed to be, when it needed to be there - and thank you for assisting with all of my last minute requests! I thought you might like this pic...we love it!"
Rachel Dodd - Wedding in Nether Compton, Dorset, 2013
"I just wanted to say thank you for all your help in making our wedding a success. Adam and I were really pleased with the marquee and the guys worked tirelessly to finish it on Thursday evening after their tyre blow out. We had an absolutely wonderful day and were able to open up the sides to enjoy the view and warmth for September. I think we also lucked out having the larger marquee as it worked perfectly having the bar and 'Say Fromage' photo booth one end and it was a nice feeling having everyone under the same roof and not a separate section. I would probably even advise this in future if clients are not sure."
Tania Ceaton - Wedding in Studland, Dorset, 2013
"We were very happy with everything you provided for us. The tent was much admired, tables and chair numbers just right for our purposes, as were the coloured bean bags and games. We had two very successful parties much enjoyed by us and apparently by the guests. I would like to thank all your excellent staff for their competence, endless good humour and for listening and putting everything where we wanted it."
Harriet Boileau - Party in Rampisham, Dorset, 2013
"We owe you and your crew a very large thank you for all that you did for us to make Saturday such a great success. You should be proud of your company and I shall certainly recommend you to any of my friends who feel inspired or mad enough to throw a party. All the best and here is hoping next summer will be better behaved."
Julia Handoll - Party in Litton Cheney, Dorset, 2012
