Our Highlight of the year 2015 so far.......
We are please to announce that on Thursday night 12th march we attended an awards dinner in Plymouth Guildhall for the South West Wedding Awards 2015.

We entered for the first time this year not expecting to get very far, how wrong we were.

We received an email telling us that we had got through as a finalist in the awards.

On Thursday evening we were awarded the 2015 wedding marquee supplier of the year for Devon and Cornwall.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our Bride & Grooms that kindly voted for us.



We are going to be here, so why not visit for some new ideas.

Mike & Suzanne's Wedding At Harracott
28th September 2013
What a pleasure this wedding was.

A little about Mike's history, Mike was one of the founding members of our Company hence the (M) in M & R. Mike & Rick set up M & R Marquees around 03/04 with a couple party tents, but like everything else working full time while training in his current job and trying to run a business as well was not easy. It's a shame Mike left the marquees in it's early stages

We did a site visit a few months before, but Mike, being Mike likes to do things at short notice or so I'm lead to believe, he only gave us 3 months to sort this one out, the same with everything else for the big day, from dresses, flowers, suits, wedding cars and the caterers. Even the page boys suit did not arrive until the Saturday morning on the big day.

We arrived on the Wednesday to make a start erecting the main marquee 9m x 18m with the help of Mike his brother Matt and father Steve and the rest of our team, This was up in no time at all and the sun helped it go with a swing.


It was not long before the fun began, the frame was up and was time to put the roofs on, Mike offered to help with this one, although I have yet to see the photo this was quite eventful, To capture the scene Mike began to coil the rope up to throw it over the roof framework. Mike took a swing with his arm and let to rope go, The rope went up in the air and landed behind him in a heap. Photo hopefully to be uploaded soon.......

The rest of the day went well with all the marquee's being erected in one day


We started off by laying all the flooring through out the marquees with the electrics, linings, dance floor, tables and chairs were then to follow soon after.


Day 3

This was more of a relaxing day for us as the main bulk of the work was finished by then, only the LED lighting was left to put in. The bar was put in and the Sound & Lighting for the evening was done too. The DJ for the evening was going to be Mike's former partner Ricky, Ricky which was the (R) in M & R, Ricky having been a DJ since 1979 and also a work colleague of Mike's soon took charge of erecting the sound & lighting. Once this was done it was time to relax and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Day 4 Saturday D-Day

The weather was not looking good, with the forecast of more rain for later in the day.

The marquees were then ready for the Guests to arrive, with the hog roast giving off a fantastic aroma though out the marquee. It was then time for the wedding party to arrive with Mike & Suzanne arriving in pure style with the help of Ricky's sports car a 1987 Black Lotus Esprit S2 with gold ribbons


With an evening invitation to help celebrate the marriage of another great couple we would like to wish them all the best for the future, the evening was great and an opportunity for me to get a couple photo's for the album inside and out. More photo's in our gallery.

Toast Event Management Presents Another great Wedding Fayre.
24th February 2013 - 10am - 3pm

The event itself went very well, even though the weather had not been to kind to us previously, it turned out to be one of the best days, not only could the doors of the hall be left open, the sun actually shone for us.

I believe this also had an effect on the number of brides we had through the door.

A well organised event by Louise, and we are looking forward to the next one.
