February, activity heats up even if the weather doesn’t!

February 25th, 2011

February was a brave choice for a big marquee wedding but apart from some very wet and windy weather at the start of the week (and some restrictions on vehicle access!) it was a great success. Justin Orde took over the reins at Gill  Orde in Catering for the first time and did an amazing job. We brought Finix in to do the lighting and once again they created an oasis of warmth on what was a fairly raw February night.

The marquee was designed with a luscious honey beige carpet, black and white dancefloor, panels of fairylights on the ceiling and lots of warm greens and golds in the table centres and floral displays. Marquee heaters kept the inside cosy while outside Finix’s lighting cast a majestic glow over the house and surrounding trees.

The rest of the month has seen marquees at the Murrayfield Hotel for the first of Scotland’s Six Nations matches at home, and the Point to Point marquee at Friarshaugh still stands proud until the next meeting for the Buccleuch Hunt on the 19th March.

Meanwhile Steph and Karen beaver away in the office dispatching quotes and planning ahead for the busy summer months… time flies when you’re having fun!
