About The Rutland Marquee Company...

A family business in the heart of Rutland


The Rutland Marquee Company is owned and run by us, husband and wife, Tom and Hannah Dodson. We were both raised in Rutland, and we now live in North Luffenham with our two little girls, Maisie and Millie.

We are both passionate about helping people to organise events and want each of our many customers to be completely satisfied with the service that we provide. When we were planning our own wedding we encountered a number of venues which were incredibly inflexible, with very rigid price packages which didn't always fit with our requirements. In some cases, our wedding would have been one of many receptions at the same venue, on the same day and we wanted our wedding to feel unique, not just part of a conveyer belt.

Because of that we want each and every one of our clients, regardless of the occasion or size of their event, to know and feel that their booking is special to us and that all aspects of planning are being properly taken care of.

Please do take a moment to read a testimonial from one of our brides and groom. It's at the bottom of the page. We are so pleased and proud to help everyone create their perfect day.

Hannah Dodson - Director


Hannah brings brilliant organisational skills and a flair for the creative to the team. But most importantly, Hannah is passionate about parties and this makes The Rutland Marquee Company a great partner for your event.

Before managing the marquee company, Hannah worked as an Interior Designer and has a degree in Art and English Literature.

Tom Dodson - Director

After completing three years at Brooksby Agricultural College, specialising in farm management, Tom went on to work at a Sailing Club as part of the Boatswain Team, before taking on board running The Rutland Marquee Company.

“I love getting to meet new people, learn about them and the sort of event they want and then working with them to achieve this”

Testimonial - Delia and Geoff

'Tom and Hannah,

Well what can we say...

thank you so much for all your recommendations, effort, and commitment to making our wedding celebrations so perfect. We really did have the best wedding week ever, and loved every single moment. We really couldn't have done it without you both and your fantastic hard working team.

You listened to what we wanted and totally created the dream that we had hoped for. It was perfect in every way and we didn't even notice the rain in the end!

Thank you for supplying all the little extras, everything from the sofas to the lanterns was as I imagined in my head and totally worked. Our guests are still talking about both events and say that 'it's the best wedding they have ever been to'!

You all worked so hard creating our fairyland and then again with running the bar. I really didn't worry about anything and just enjoyed both events knowing that you had everything under control. We will definitely recommend your personal, professional service to others.

Once again a huge big genuine thank you from the both of us. Delia and Geoff xx'
