SILK ESTATE – CANTERBURY

We create exceptional Marquee Weddings.

‘Silk Estate – Marquee Weddings by Toni May’ has evolved as a specialised division of Peter May Marquee and Event Hire, Ashburton.

If you already have a booking with us, you’ll simply notice a change of branding in our communications with you, but you can still expect the same superb service, and meticulous attention to detail.

Silk Estate are consummate professionals. Toni is also very discerning about the quality of Wedding Hire products; from the immaculate marquees and silk linings, to beautiful tableware, accessories, decorative lighting, wedding chairs and furniture.

TONI MAY

“It doesn’t really feel like ‘work’, because I love it so much! I’m always thinking ahead, so that clients don’t have to worry, and to ensure guests have an exceptional experience. It’s all in the detail; making sure every aspect is just right.”

Toni May specialises in planning Marquee Weddings in Mid and South Canterbury. The demand for Toni’s wedding services, through Peter May Marquee & Event Hire, led to the creation of Silk Estate – Marquee Weddings by Toni May.

Toni’s attention to detail has earned Silk Estate a reputation for having impeccable standards. Toni has a wealth of practical knowledge, and inspirational wedding ideas to share with you.

“A silk-lined wedding marquee is the perfect wedding venue – it gives our clients a blank canvas. We help them add their touch to it… I find that really exciting!”

Toni welcomes the input of family members, and the bridal party, as it’s very much a team effort, crafting a memorable wedding which is a true reflection of the bride and groom.

  • WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY...

    When our daughter asked if we would consider having her wedding in our garden in January, during harvest time, it was a daunting prospect. After talking to Toni I was confident that anything was possible. Like all parents I wanted the wedding to be perfect right down to the presentation of the tables. The marquee was breathtaking. It looked gorgeous with the silk lined roof and walls; fairy lights lined the walls and surrounded the dance floor. The fairy light curtains behind the bridal table looked wonderful in the photos. We also choose to have a silk lined entrance marquee which completed the picture. The linen and glassware were pristine. We hired almost everything from Toni and Peter including tables, chairs and dance floor. They delivered, installed and we appreciated Toni’s help setting up the tables on the morning of the wedding. We also had plan ‘B’ if it rained. Another marquee was on standby that would have been installed at short notice for the marriage ceremony; however the heavens blessed us with a remarkable day. Toni and Peter’s experience and willingness to work with us contributed to making our daughter’s wedding day perfect.

  • WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY...

    Words cannot express our gratitude for all your support + help throughout our wedding planning + big day. Your professionalism and attention to detail certainly showed in all aspects of the marquee, the hire equipment and the feedback we have received since has reflected no end. Your team is simply outstanding, they are a real credit to you both. You have made us and our families feel at ease throughout the whole process, + the week prior was fun and enjoyable, opposed to stressful and tiring – which is often the case. Having the marquee at the family farm was very special to us and being able to use it the following day allowed for yet another special occasion. We cannot thank you enough for your help + commitment to our big day. It was all we had hoped for + more. The worst thing is, now it is all over!
