The summer mayhem continues into August, with horse events, weddings, and races

August 31st, 2010

We started the month with two horse related marquees – one being for the Lauder Festival Ball at the Lauderdale Hotel, and the other for our friends the Agnews at the brilliantly well organised Hendersyde Horse Trials. Continuing in the sporting vein, later in the month we also supplied some striking looking pagodas at the fabulous Musselburgh races.

We also headed back to our busiest venue, the Philipburn, provided several marquees at the wonderful Traquair House, and supplied furniture at the beautiful Mellerstain House. We also did the wedding of two childhood sweethearts at their old school, Clifton Hall near Edinburgh – very romantic! The weekend of the 21st August was one of our busiest and most spread out weekends, with big weddings in Perth, Elgin and Dumfries – not helped by our lorry breaking down en route to Elgin, but the team pulled together and all our clients had a lovely weekend. Thanks must go to Jock Borthwick and Ian McFadyen from Bordaloo who helped us get the lorry back on the road.

We also did some unusual wall and ceiling decor that weekend – with butterfly drapes and vintage chandeliers in Dumfries and Cornish Cream lining supplied by Arabian tents, in Perth.

The last weekend of the month took us to Monteviot where we also supplied our first ever wedding night yurt! This wedding also saw us working with some top quality event suppliers in Scotland – Wilde Thyme catering, Finix Productions, Carnival Chaos and Sitting Pretty.
