On an extremely wet and wild Novembers night, more than 250 guests gathered under the captivating structure of another stunning Good Intents luxury installation. This time at Flanesford Priory near Ross on Wye, for a society ball with a hint of ski, as the dress code stipulated. And my…. what a scene was set for the event.
If they hadn’t already driven the winding roads to Flanesford, guests could easily have imagined themselves on the slopes of Whistler Mountain, whilst actually they were partying the night away in a big old tent in rural Herefordshire. When I say that, it was anything but your traditional structure. As guests arrived it was already dark, and many commented on the incredible look of the marquee from a distance. A vision in blue, but the atmosphere was anything but.
Utilising the marquee site at Flanesford Priory and adjoining the Glebe Room, a 33m long structure was installed with almost two thirds of the roof being clear and the remainder with starlight black lining. Blue carpets, a host of lighting, our Illuminated LED bar, all combined with the ever-popular paper lanterns, transformed the marquee into a wintery world of sallopettes, snowploughing and schussing. Guests were seated at individual rectangular tables, whilst enjoying some apres ski laid on by the wonderful Izzie’s Catering. Again, also proof that a winter marquee need not be the cold and draughty affair often imagined. More than 250 guests were more than cosy in our marquee, with plenty of space for dancing aswell. Our white dancefloor was well used by the party goers whilst they were also able to enjoy a spot of Piglet Racing.
A fantastic photoboth area was created in the Glebe Room, complete with toboggans, skis and furs, for guests to enjoy and take home a momento of a fabulous evening.
