Marquee Hire Specialists, Wedding Marquees, Corporate and Party Marquee Hire

What we do

First and foremost, Best Intent Marquees are marquee hire specialists offering their services which include marquee decoration throughout Scotland and the North of England

At Best Intent we understand that a marquee event is about more than the marquee.  We often hear from wedding clients who say ‘we have never done this before, we don’t know what we need’ and that is where our expertise and willingness to help comes into play. But even for corporate clients and other event managers we can lighten the load and make the whole process simpler and easier by taking responsibility for the wider logistics and production elements of the event.

Best Intent offer marquee hire Scotland and throughout Northern England. For more information about geographical areas covered see where we work.
