Love letters: Couples share why Peacock and Bow marquee hire became their perfect Valentine

As it's Valentine’s Day this week, we thought we’d share some marquee love letters…to us. Hey, it’s all about self love these days anyway! 


We’re incredibly lucky to have provided pole and canvas marquees to some wonderful clients over the years, who we’ve absolutely fallen in love with through hearing their stories and being part of their special celebrations. According to their feedback, it seems the feelings are mutual. It's a serious serotonin boost every time we get a review. We’re always bowled over by our client’s kind words and appreciation and we’ll never stop feeling grateful to do what we do. Look, if we can’t be gushy on Valentines Day when can we?


So, in a gracious act of vainglory (massive contradiction alert!) Here's a tiny sample of the sort of things that slide into our DMs on the regular.


We just wanted to say a GIGANTIC thank you for absolutely everything you did for our wedding in August. We had the best day of our lives - well, actually the best few days. What can we say? The marquee was just perfect. Everything was exactly how we dreamed it would be and it just wouldn't have been the perfect day we'd always wanted without it. We have had so many compliments and questions about it and we just wanted to say how incredibly grateful we are to you for providing us with such a beautiful place to celebrate our wedding. We went back to Burley last weekend and it was so sad to see just an empty field where the marquee stood but of course the memories will stay with us forever!


Thank you once again for everything - we knew we were in safe hands from the moment we contacted you in Jan 2022 and the whole process couldn't have been any better. We'll certainly be recommending you to any friends of ours who get married locally so hopefully we'll see you again in the future!

Incredible! Olivia and I used Peacock and Bow for our wedding marquee and it was amazing! Everyone couldn’t believe the quality of the marquee and how beautiful It was! Katherine and team were brilliant from start to finish and the detail that goes into their work is incredible. We’ll use Peacock and Bow for any future events and recommend them to anyone needing a marquee!

I know I’ve said it 100 times but I just wanted to put pen to paper (or fingers to keys!) to pass on my thanks again for the structures for Bex and Elliot. Your tents are exquisite, your service sublime, your flexibility so welcome and your team such a joy to work with. As a planner, you made my life so much easier, understanding the goal, being on the same page, always one step ahead and pivoting when needed. It’s been an absolute pleasure and I very much look forward to working with you again in the future.

Katharine and her team at Peacock and Bow really made our wedding day on extra special. We had two marquees and they looked absolutely stunning. They were also brilliant because we had pouring rain and they kept our guests warm and dry! The level of service from Katharine and the team has been outstanding and I would highly, highly recommend them. Thank you Katharine and Peacock and Bow for being so fantastic and for being so lovely too! Olivia and James xxx

Fantastic from start to finish. We got married on Saturday and had the most wonderful experience dealing with Peacock and Bow. It goes without saying that the marquee was simply stunning. What really made the difference however, was the personal service provided, the expertise and exacting standards which were evident throughout. Katherine was always available on the phone to talk through ideas (and calm me down in the midst of wedding planning madness!). 


I shared my vision with her and she was able to make it happen. For example, sourcing a four metre hoop for flowers to sit above the stunning P&B oak bar, helping reconfigure tables to ensure everything fit and sharing a 3D simulation so we could really visualise what it would look like on the day. We would 100% recommend and thank you again!

Where to begin! From start to finish you have provided us with the most insane customer service. The Peacock and Bow team have been fantastic. You were always there to pick up our calls and answer any questions. 


You came out of your way to bring the marquee down all the way down to Rock and despite that miserable raining Thursday morning erecting the marquee, not once did you complain, when we came to see you we were only greeted by smiley faces. The marquee looked ABSOLUTELY stunning! We had so many comments from guests saying it was the nicest marquees they've seen; it really took pride of place. 


You completely put us at ease during the run up and on the day. Nothing was a problem for you guys and you really went out of your way to make it a stress free day for us. The marquee you advised us to get was the perfect size for the number of guests we had. The dance floor was constantly packed the whole entire night. The large round bar also had loads of comments and looked amazing, particularly with the flower ring over. The inside of the marquee looked stunning, particularly with the lighting in the evening. 


You worked so well with all of our suppliers, some of whom you recommended, which we are grateful for. We will be recommending you to EVERYONE, and will just sing all your praises all day long. We cannot thank you enough for really being a part of our special weekend.

Well, we could go on but too much self-love can be destructive, so you know, boundaries! If you do want to read more of the love letters we’ve had from our clients, be sure to check out our website, where we have a ton of testimonials that show exactly why choosing a Peacock and Bow marquee for your wedding or special event will leave you lovestruck.


If you’ve hired one of our marquees and would like to be featured on our blog, so your big day can inspire other couples to throw the marquee wedding of their dreams, we’d love to hear from you! Drop us an email and we’ll get right back to you.


Finally, a big thanks to all our lovely clients and couples who have shared the marquee love. Knowing we’ve helped make your big days that little bit more special is our absolute reason why. Big love! P&B xxx
