To Hannah, Tom and the Southern Events Team,
We just wanted to say thank you so much for helping make our wedding day so perfect. We really had the best day. Everything from the marquee decorations and food was just amazing. The set up and take down team were brilliant and the team on the day amazing. You made sure everything ran seamlessly so myself and Greg did not have to worry about a thing.

I just wanted to thank you and your staff for making a difficult day easier and for providing such excellent service. Our guests were praising the quality of your sandwiches, cakes and scones and found the marquee very comfortable so thank you again.
Hilary Hinckley – March 2017
Fantastic company! Once I had explained the kind of event I wanted for my party, they sorted everything! No stress or hassle for me even on the day/night. Nothing was too much trouble or not possible to achieve. If you want a marquee company to provide and organise your event, this is the one to use! Thank you to the whole team at Southern Events.

We would just like to say a huge thank you to the team at southern events for helping to make out wedding this weekend(28th may) run smoothly. The team went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly from setting up to clearing away and everything inbetween. The bar was really well stocked and the dj responded to the guest requests and music tastes. We hired a number of items that were exactly what we needed. We can’t recommend this company enough. Thank you
Mr & Mrs Howells – May 2016
Southern Events could not have been more helpful with our event on the 5th September 2015. Hannah, Tom and Natalie were incredible from beginning to end; we cannot express how much they made our party what it was. From the outset, communication was clear, accurate and quick. When they arrived on site they went above and beyond to make sure the marquee was perfectly decorated, their attitude was always positive, there attention to detail is perfect. Thank you so much for your help!
Mr & Mrs Florence – September 2015
When we first planned to stage this style of wedding, it seemed quite daunting as there were so many elements to arrange. Southern Events put us at ease immediately. They could supply everything, from marquee, to toilets, power, stage for band and even an outside bar. Throughout the whole build up they were so friendly and accommodating to additional requests…it really felt like they cared we had the day we anted. And on the day they were superb. Everyone enjoyed the food… and Tom, Hannah and the team helped make everything flow seamlessly. For everything they did they were also very reasonably priced and we never felt they were doing what many companies so when they hear the word ‘wedding’ and adding a zero to the end of every cost. We couldn’t recommend Southern Events highly enough and would like to say a massive thank you for helping to make our dream wedding a reality.
Mr & Mrs Mills – August 2015
Fantastic service from Tom and Nick from beginning to end, nothing was too much trouble even getting lanterns to suspend out of thin air made my wedding the dream day it was!

Thank-you so much guys you were amazing and Steve and I can’t thank you enough!x

They were welcomed as VIP guests and enjoyed close animal encounters, food, music and other entertainment.
The event was really magical – thank you so much for helping us make it special.

Mr & Mrs Hill – August 2014
Southern Events did an absolutely wonderful job in catering for our wedding in Whtested, Kent in July 2014. Tom Stovold and his team were superb in that they accommodated all our needs and requests with no fuss at all and were so obliging. The front of house team, including waiting staff, bar staff, and Anne the manager provided an excellent service throughout the day and evening and made that extra effort to get to know many of our guests by name which was a really nice personal touch. We had champagne and canapés, a delicious three course meal for 150 guests that really impressed our guests, and an evening barbeque with all delivered seamlessly. Southern Events are more than just food caterers as they provided all the wedding furniture for the marquee including tables, chairs, table linen, colour co-ordinated seat covers and even a bouncy castle. We spent a month or more looking at different catering companies online before deciding and Tom’s Southern Events is the best value company by far in the South-East Region. Tom’s easy going nature and long experience with outdoor catering for big events with large numbers of guests helped make us feel very comfortable and relaxed in the months leading up to our wedding and on the big day itself. We would highly recommend Southern Events for your big event or special occasion!
Ian & Laura – July 2014
We had our wedding at local vineyard ( Bluebell Vineyard Estates) and had Tom at Southern Events provide marquee and catering. The day was fantastic and Tom helped provide the bespoke wedding we had envisioned, and better!
I recommend including the 360 degree bar, made a great focal point to find drinks and chat. Besides wines and lager on tap we also had Harvey’s ale which was a treat for the many Sussex ale drinking guests. We had a 3 course meal, and as we think of ourselves a little bit as foodies(!), Tom sourced a very local chef very experienced in events catering who could provide a fine dining experience. Our guests all love the food. As well as this, we had the hog roast for the evening, which was such a huge success, again I have to recommend this if any budget to spare.
Also in the package DJ, Catering team who also staffed the bar- all did a great job, and luxury toilets. We felt the price very reasonable. Will recommend to friends and family.
Mr & Mrs Hews – July 2014
We chose Southern Events to provide the marquee, bar and catering for our wedding this June. The service provided was fantastic, any question I had Tom answered promptly and helped put my wedding stresses at ease! All our Guests thought the marquee and bar were lovely and the hog roast we had in the evening was a massive hit. I have already recommended Southern Events to people. Thank you for everything.
