Who works at E.H. Events & Marquees and what are your roles?

There are three of us full time. Me (the boss). My role primarily is picking up projects from the start, working with the customer and seeing them through to completion. I’m on-site for every build to ensure the company’s high quality of work is always maintained.

Charlotte (my better half (and the real boss)) mans the office and accounts to ensure we keep on running smoothly and are always in the right place at the right time.

I never trained to be photographer; I became interested while my sister was studying fine art photography at Uni. Interestingly enough both of my grandfathers were making a living from photography during the second war.
