An exceptional company to use for events. I've used them twice now, once for a wedding and then my 30th birthday a year later, with 2 completely different styles and vibes in the same space. Mark goes above and beyond to help decide what you need without being too much of a salesman which i found with other companies. All staff seem to genuinely want you to have the best celebration possible but respect your budget and requirements to make the best of the space available. I asked several companies for quotes the first time round and can genuinely say Abacus gave the best price, highest quality extras and best service to the point that I didn't bother shopping around the second time. Completely took the stress away from me making decisions with lots of photo ideas and support throughout the process. Even the installation guys were extremely polite and helpful. Happily recommend to anyone with an event coming up. My guests were amazed by the marquee both times.

Rita Jindal

I used Abacus marquees for my daughter’s pre- wedding events. I can honestly say they were amazing!! From start to finish they were very professional and provided an excellent service. I will definitely be using them again. Thank you Mark, Dan, Ollie, Will, Ben & Ciaran.

Cara Hemmins

Abacus did an amazing job with my Marquee for my wedding! The communication with Dan was superb and nothing was too much.. we had a little hiccup at the start with set up but once I spoke to Dan he swiftly sorted it, and it was done and dusted in an hour! It looked amazing and I would definitely be using them again in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone!

Claire Coulson

We booked Abacus for our 40th wedding anniversary party and they were absolutely brilliant from start to finish. The planning session 9 months ago was detailed with Mark including a very helpful sight visit. Nearer the time we filled in the details and the company were flexible and helpful with suggestions and we were able to liaise with Zulika - she was always on the end of the phone in the last week. The marquee set up was efficient and the all the team were respectful of plants, flowers and access. Pack down was equally good. The whole marquee with lights, white curtains and flexible roll up windows, looked stunning. We booked staff to make the day go smoothly and deal with “anything” during the event. Hannah and Nick arrived early and took control of every request I made, including attending the bar, cutting desserts up, filling our dishwasher, checking loos etc. I wrote a list with timings beforehand and they found this helpful. They went over and above to make our day special. Their professional attitudes, care and attention were exemplary. I would highly recommend Abacus for any special event.

Had a wedding with over 300 guests on 8th July 2023 and the marquee was installed perfectly! Highly recommend this company! Professional team and reasonably priced! You guys made it look beautiful. xx Charlotte Dent

Is a Marquee Wedding Cheaper?

I had absolute confidence he would be able to bring to life the vision we had...

“From the moment I met Mark, I had absolute confidence that he would be able to bring to life the vision we had for our wedding. His enthusiasm and capacity for ideas are superb and made everything so much more that we thought possible.

Mark, Adam and the team worked incredibly hard in quite windy and wet conditions to complete the build without once losing that enthusiasm. They even adopted our dog as site mascot which made him very happy.

We’ve had so many compliments about the quality and ambience that the sailcloth marquee gave to the wedding and we can’t thank Abacus enough for its efforts – thank you so much guys!  There’s more tea waiting whenever you want to pop in!”
