How It Works:

Capability Events Ltd are able to take the stress out of your wedding reception planning with our simple process. All you need to do is get in touch and let us know the following: your date, location, rough guest numbers day/evening and a basic gist of what you are thinking off.  Once you have chosen the look you would like for your wedding reception from our range of ideas, we will produce a bespoke quote for your wedding reception. At some point we will come and have a look at your garden and check that everything will work on the day.  This is always no obligation and free of charge for yourself.

Once we have agreed a layout and you have approved our quote, we will get on with organising your reception.  You do not need to worry about anything!  About4 -6 weeks before your wedding day we will be in touch to discuss the final details regarding timings and colour choices.

Our experienced event crew will set up your Marquee and all your equipment for you a few days before your wedding, showing you how it all works and leaving you and your caterer to add your finishing touches before your big day.

After your event we will return and remove all the hired equipment and furniture, take down the Marquee and endeavour to return the site to its original condition leaving you to head off on honeymoon without any worries.

Every element of our packages are fully customisable for you to design your special wedding day. We know that one package isn’t going to suit everyone so please use this example as a starting point for your wedding and get in touch with any queries or for a bespoke quote.
