We have just received a thank you from one of our Middle Eastern wedding clients: “...you have been wonderful”.
It’s in the form of this beautifully decorated card that’s made in India by IndianWeddingCard.com and has been shipped over to the UK. 

There are some lovely designs for almost any event at remarkably reasonable prices

Tents inside

We erected one of our tents inside the Celtic Manor hotel near Cardiff. It was for an event for Samsung put together by the Rede2 agency. They wanted to create the feel of a festival within a large interior space.


Using a simple frame and central poles we created an authentic feel for their event. We can now offer our tents inside buildings, tents in hotels (a chill out area for a wedding or break-out area for a meeting), tents in exhibition halls (e.g. a tented exhibition stand).

August Photo competition winner - Rococo

Oasis has launched a new look called Rococo. Using a grey and white stripe and an ornate black pattern to diversify our look.
The beautiful beaded chandelier lighting is part of the package. Thanks Anna K for all your photography at this 60th birthday party

We have got some more great shots for September - its been a busy month and I think we are going to have to award multiple prizes. Thank you all.

July Photo competition winner

Gin and Juice: this bar is set to get the party swinging. Oasis stocks giant internally lit coffee pots which make an excellent show piece for the bar or buffet. We’re not convinced coffee was on the menu at this bar... Thank you Rob Holmes, your gift is on the way!

June Photo competition winner #2

Lighting pattern: This view of an Oasis roof shows the lovely patterns created by the lighting. It also shows the Arabian coffee pot light off to great effect. Thank you Tom F.
