Asians saying ‘I do’ boost tent specialist’s business

Have your say

Asian weddings are becoming a big cause for celebration for Rotherham-based Gala Tent.

“Asian weddings tend to be large, vibrant celebrations, where decoration and individuality is all important,” says Gala’s founder and managing director, Jason Mace.

“Many couples are finding that with a marquee they have a blank canvas on which to build their own unique theme and it saves them so much money by not having to hire a venue, especially as many Asian weddings last for a couple of days.”

Mark Hammond, whose business hires out Gala’s tents, agrees that demand sparked by Asian weddings is booming. “Roughly 20 per cent of our business comes from Asian weddings and this is rapidly increasing,” he says.
