We have contributed to an enormous range of private events since we began twelve years ago, from Landmark Birthdays to Anniversaries, Bar & Bat Mitzvahs, House Warmings to Parties for Party's sake. However, by far and away our most popular service is for...
Our wedding business has grown year upon year, and so has our experience of this very special occasion. We began by simply providing smart but unsophisticated marquees for Receptions. Now we have developed a range of looks to suit all tastes, and a plethora of complimentary services from catering to photography, details of which you can see in our Weddings section.
A huge part of our private business is now wedding orientated. As with all of our events, we can be involved in almost every aspect of your party should you wish. We have learnt that many of our clients do not simply want a baulk-standard marquee put up by a company that do not differentiate between a wedding and a dinner party. We remain close to you from the process of marquee and party design, making sure every detail is as you wish, right through to swift removal of the marquee after the Big Day.
Our proven track record and unrivalled thoroughness is demonstrated by the range of prestigious events we have contributed to for many household names in the worlds of sport, the media, show-business, commerce etc. Whilst we would love to provide a client list below to back this claim up, part of the reason we regularly work for 'well known' people is our complete discretion.
We are not a 'drop & run' marquee company - we have evolved over the years to look after our clients, from inception of an event through to post-event assessment. We are at all stages professional, thorough and friendly.
We understand that marquee events may be new to you, and our communication with you reflects this - we do not simply provide a quotation like a technical shopping list that means nothing to you: our quotes are detailed and most importantly understandable!
And most importantly, our site crews are polite and approachable, highly trained and expert in problem solving and giving you the finish you want. We will never leave a marquee until it has been formally handed over to you to ensure you are completely satisfied and aware of any technical issues you might need to know.
We are not an 'ivory tower' organisation - we will be with you every step of the way, getting our hands dirty and doing whatever is required to make your event a success.
No other Company tries harder
We have learnt over time that attention to detail and a company-wide belief in giving you the best we can brings clients back to Complete Events. To give you an idea:-
If we are supplying non-marquee services (catering, entertainments etc) then they will be managed to the nth degree by us. If you are sourcing these services yourself then we believe in liaison between us and your contractors to ensure all areas are covered and they have everything from us that they need.
We will not simply state 'this is what is available and that's it'. For example:
- You might not want a plain canvas exterior: we can offer clear PVC
- You may not want classic pleated marquee interior linings: we can offer atmospheric NightSky, flat linings or even have bespoke designs made for you!
- Not content with having the industry standard Gilt Banqueting Chair as your only option we offer over 30 dining chair varieties
The list of options is endless, and that is the very point! We will continue to add to the range as long as the demand for variety exists.
Tell it like it is!
After every event we send our clients a questionnaire, which asks for frank opinions on our standards of service. These have proved invaluable to us as we have grown, allowing us to continually track our performance and often providing important pointers for our future. We are not afraid of criticism, but pleasingly we do not get a great deal!
Complete Events at your home

- On Tennis Courts & Patios
- Inside Barns and large buildings
- Upon purpose built Scaffolded platforms on steep slopes
- Multi-Level sites
- High Security private homes where tight regulations apply
- Almost any hard-standing surface

Our high level of service, commitment to excellence and quality of product mean that we now have strong links to many desirable venues and locations across the South of England. Many of these locations have strict codes of conduct and particular rules and regulations, to which we adhere rigorously.
