S. Hamilton

Hi Steph

Just wanted to say a huge Thankyou for a fabulous marquee. It all worked out exactly as we had hoped from the start - the clear roof was always a bit of a risk but I can’t tell you what a success it was and how much it was admired by our guests.

A couple of pics following of set up and from Sunday. We pulled the centre tables out onto the grass as it was such a lovely day. I can send you professional pics from our Saturday layout when they come if you are interested.

As I said before - you have great guys in your team. Thanks for making it all so easy for us!

Mark and Sue

Good Evening Steph

Big thanks to you and Charles for your entire organisation it actually happened as intended and as you know we had a fabulous night.

So pleased we lit up the trees and of course the red ceiling was a great success and I think to those friends who know Geoffrey well the red carpet was apparently typical!

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and a fabulous New Year.

Kind regards
Joan Manners

Hi Steph,
I just wanted to say how amazing the marquee looked - we had a fantastic party for Emily's 21st, helped along the way by the beautiful weather. The whole process of organising what we wanted in discussions with you and then the installation/ removal of the marquee went smoothly and everything was professionally done. Any problems were sorted out quickly and efficiently. I would have no hesitation in coming back to Best Intent for future celebrations - I really appreciated everything that you did - so thank you!
All The Best

Hi Steph,

Just wanted to say thank you so much to you and everyone from BestIntent.
From putting the marquees up to taking them down, everyone who came to the
house was so hard working and polite.
The marquees looked stunning and this is really down to them and also to you
and your meticulous planning.
You were so accommodating even with putting down one more piece of
flooring - which was so kind.
Overall just wanted to say, thank you so much for all your help and we are
both so grateful.

But honestly thanks again,
Naivasha & Gus

Just to say thanks very much for helping out at such short notice with our

Steph and Charles I would like to thank you most sincerely once again for the lovely marquee and excellent service.

I have had amazing feedback as the ball went very well. This would not have been possible without you and your team and all you did to make the venue what it was.

I hope all was left as expected for your early work on Sat morning.

The marquee looked absolutely beautiful and I am so pleased that I decided to go with one bow tie. It just made it look a little more special.
Thank you for all your advice and input re chairs and tables and just generally everything. It is greatly appreciated.

Please could you pencil us in for next year

Dear Stephanie,

Thank you for organising the putting up of the marquees for the church and Templeknowe for Brigadier Nicholas Ridley's funeral.

It was very nice to have Best Intent putting the marquees for the Brigadier, old friends and it was good to have you doing this last sad thing for him after many other happy occasions. He would have enjoyed the day, approved of it and been pleased to have you there on what was an important day for him.

Thank You again Stephanie & the others who were there & the Westie!!

John Scott - marquee hire edinburgh

Dear Steph,

I can't believe that it was only a week ago when your magnificent team were de-rigging all the marquees and life was slowly returning to normal. The marquees were fantastic and I really feel that we achieved our vision with the three tented roofs cascading down the tiers on the lawn. We had a fantastic day. The florists commented on the flat lining saying that it was particularly beautiful and a wonderful backdrop for flowers.

Huge thanks Step. As soon as we put this to bed, we need to begin booking and organising the next wedding for next year.

Leslie Swinton - Marquee Hire Scottish Borders

Morning Steph,

I wouldn’t hesitate to use you again in the future or to recommend you to others which I am sure I will do, as so many guests commented on the quality and interior of the marquee!

Dearest Steph,

I feel so bad that I have taken so long to thank you for all you did at Laura & Mark's wedding.

I knew that I could just relax & enjoy the whole day knowing that you had everything under control. Your team were so wonderful throughout the setting up and particularly kind when the came to take the tent down with so much mess still left in it. They could not have been kinder - starting the chef's van, towing out my trailer etc etc.

Throughout my career, I have attended many business, social, and charity events in a variety of environments and am therefore aware of different settings for all occasions and can therefore vouch that they compared favourably with any function I have attended.

When engaging Best Intent for my daughter’s 21st, I found them not only to be competent, trustworthy and reliable, but also flexible to my needs and thoughts about how I wanted my daughter’s 21st to look like. They managed the whole job efficiently and to an extremely high standard and all at a very competitive price.

I would therefore have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them for any type of function and am sure that any potential client would be as pleased as I was as to how the whole job turned out.’

So many people said how nice it was to have those big windows all round the marquee and everyone loved the colour of the carpet because it looked so natural, just like a lawn (we lay a lot of lawn and I wish it looked as smooth as that everytime!) Everything was top notch. Many thanks for pulling out all the stops to make David & Katie’s wedding so special’

I am very pleased to be writing, on behalf of the Council, to thank you personally for the contribution you made and to let you know that such an outstanding success and the efforts to achieve it are not taken for granted.’
