Event Planner Emma Tebbey of Tebbey and Co.
“As a wedding and events planner it is vital to have partners that deliver the quality and service that I can rely upon time and again. Special Occasion Linen Hire provide a first class service and a stunning range of linen tailored to my exact requirements. With any wedding, last minute changes can happen. A common request is being asked for more tables to be added affecting tablecloth and chair cover volumes , but the team take it in their stride and work closely with me to ensure everything is in place for the big day.”
Wallace Vincent of the Master Innholders.
“We were delighted with the vibrant linen supplied by Special Occasion Linen – it really helped provide the added wow factor to this year’s gala dinner, which is one of the highlights of our annual conference. It was wonderful to have the ability to choose from their extensive range of colourful linen and work alongside the hotel to create a really impactful table setting”
