"The katas EXCEEDED our expectations on so many levels. Firstly, dealing with the team was so easy and stress free. Everything was highly professional and the team very friendly. In terms of outlook, the tents blew us away - truly stunning and totally different. We really felt like we had a 'one off' day. They were everything we were looking for and delivered exactly what we wanted for our dream day."

Nick & Gemma, Holywood Co Down - June 2015

"Ed & team were extremely professional, helpful and a pleasure to have around at a stressful time! The sound was superb and how lovely to have the band playing yet be able to chat at the bar at the same time. Fire, sofas, all the extras were fab.

All our guests were so impressed and we really had a fantastic atmosphere for a really special day. We couldn't have been more delighted. They were absolutely fantastic."

Claire, Tipperary - August 2015

Thank you Magnakata for making our day even more magical, we loved the tipis and the relaxed atmosphere they provided. Just what we were after.  Your service and guidance where A* from start to finish.  Great people to work with and would 100% recommend. Perfect setting for our perfect wedding! 

Claire & Adam, Portadown - July 2015

"Thank you to everyone involved in helping us to fulfill our tipi wedding dream! We really appreciated the care and attention on the Big Day when the tempest broke! The tipis stood up beautifully to the weather and made the day all the more magical. We will always be impressed by the space, height yet coziness of the Katas. They provided a unique atmosphere that we were able to put our own stamp on. Guests were 'enchanted'. We loved toasting marshmallows around the fire. A stunning back drop for photos.The Blue Moon floral touches made it - thanks to Rachel and the crew also. We cannot recommend you highly enough! Thanks for the Farm & Food recommendation - food was amazing!"

Alex & Reese, Scrabo - May 2015

"The Katas exceeded our expectations through creating a very magical atmosphere, a wonderful ambience and a truly unique wedding experience. Everything was excellent from the first moment we visited you in Downpatrick, through the site inspection, the erection and take down of the tipis. The quality of service, the quality of the tipis and furnishings was excellent." 

Eddie & Aine, Porlaoise - July 2014

“The Katas were above and beyond our expectations. I really loved them and so did our guests. I cannot say thank you enough! Obviously I was very apprehensive about holding such a huge event from home. However from the moment the team arrived I really started to enjoy it. The crew were so lovely and your whole approach so professional, we could not have asked for better. Many guests have complimented the job.” 

Rhona & Andy, Mullingar - June 2013

“The Katas were looked great and were even bigger on the inside than we thought. Our wedding was incredibly atmospheric and much of this was because of the Katas.

We found Magnakata a pleasure to deal with; really professional, reliable and honest.”

Ruth & Neil, Enniskillen - June 2013

“I had seen photos of the Katas on the internet, and they were as beautiful for our wedding as they are in the photos on the internet. our guests were truly blown away with the Katas, the setting and the Kata’s really brought the level of excitement to a whole new level.  The Kata’s were a key element in making our wedding unforgettable! Ed was so helpful and friendly at every stage, providing sound practical advice and a very professional service.  I always felt 100% secure in the knowledge that if ANYTHING happened, he’d be there in a few hours.  Considering that the Katas were erected beside a river and the weather could have been stormy, this gave great peace of mind to know that I could ring him with any problems and know that Ed would deal with it in a positive manner.

I would have no hesitation in recommending MagnaKata to anyone who is looking for something unique and very magical!”

Julie & Dave, Kilkenny – September 2011

"The Katas are really different and stood out to attract attention at the event. Service and communication were all very good and we would certainly use Magnakata again if the occasion arose. Overall the day was a great success and the Tipi was a big hit! Certainly a talking point for people at the show, even Nick Hewer, from the apprentice commented on the Tipi. The Tipi drew the attention of many who came over to see what was going on. "

First Trust Bank for the Castlewellan Show - July 2013

"The Katas bypassed our expectations. Awesome service. Amazing product Friendly company and staff to work with."

Paul & Belinda, Downhill Demense - July 2013

 “We heard about Magnakata online and you more than exceeded our expectations. Everything about the day was perfect and we especially loved the fire and seating area. Everybody was very friendly and professional and we couldn't recommend you enough!! I'm sure you'll be getting some bookings from Fermanagh in the future as everybody thought the Kata's were amazing.”

Laura & John, Lusty Beg – August 2013

“ Would highly recommend Magnakata. The buzz from the night was excellent, the tents were the talking point and really helped create a natural, fun atmosphere for our wedding. Your staff are amazing and extremely professional and friendly. I can't emphasis enough how much this helped our wedding run smoothly.”

Neidra & Eoghan, Mallow, Cork - August 2013

"The Kata's were brilliant - better than we had expected. They look great and were even bigger on the inside than we thought. Our wedding was so incredibly atmospheric and much of this was because of the Katas. We found Magnakata a pleasure to deal with - really professional, reliable and honest."

Neil & Ruth, Enniskillen - June 2013

“The Katas looked super and were exactly the more casual look we needed whilst still creating the wow factor!”

Armoy Races - July 2013

“ I was genuinely shocked! They were great and perfect for the theme we were aiming for. Expectations were met over and above! Everything was perfect right from the beginning. Ed knew exactly what we needed as a company and helped fulfil our demands. Great team to work with.

It was unfortunate we were not able to meet Ed and his team on site. Normally I have full control of all event aspects but I was not able to be there on this occasion. As daunting as this was for me, Ed reassured me I had nothing to worry about. The kata’s were set up and decorated as hoped. The whole team loved the idea and I was surprised how spacious they were and how well they kept their heat for an event in January. Location chosen for the event was also chosen by Ed ..... overall we had a great day with lots of memories to cherish. “

Katie from Broadsoft - January 2013

“ We knew they were going to be special, but when the wedding was in full swing they really came into their own. They were beautiful and quirky and really made our wedding.

Ed and all the guys at Magnakata were a joy to work with and fully committed to making our wedding as special as we had dreamed. If you are hosting any event and you want to be talked about or remembered forever, then Magnakata should be your starting point. No-one should have to settle for a white, square, plastic marquee any more. “

Damien & Ann, Claregalway Castle - December 2012

“ The kata’s more than met our expectations. They were a perfect size and feel for the day. The kata’s really made our wedding day. They looked incredible in the grounds of Mount Stewart: all of our guests were totally bowled over by them. They had the most special feel, and I have wonderful memories of dancing the night away in them. I can’t recommend Magnakata enough. The service and product were second to none, and our wedding would not have been the same without their involvement.”

Anna & Lewis, Mount Stewart - August 2012

“ They exceeded our expectations, which is quite rare for me! What a wonderful, professional organisation. From the start I found the service superb, both in support of our ideas and in professionalism. The set up and build were perfect, I would highly recommend this company. I couldn’t be happier.

Many thanks and I hope to have the opportunity to use you again. “

Lorna, Backup Marketing - September 2012

“ Well! It was a great focal point and created the WOW factor we were looking for. Everything went as expected. Great company, well managed, good communication. “ 

DRP Group, Belfast – August 2012

“ The team from Magnakata were a pleasure to work with. Ed was flexible, friendly and obviously has great navigational skills having found our house tucked away in the middle of Westmeath. He provided a very fair quote and didn’t quibble when we modified a few odds and sods. The Katas were exactly what we wanted for our wedding day and they were very professionally assembled and disassembled by Ed and his team. We also loved the furniture options available. We would highly recommend them. “

Bill & Petra, Westmeath - June 2009

“ Perfect in every way! We had so many letters and cards from our guests saying how ‘magical’ ‘fairytale like’ ‘special’ ‘different’ and ‘unique’ the Tipis were. They really set off our wedding perfectly. I couldn’t imagine using anything else. ”

Bridget & Jeremy, Killinchy – August 2011

“Thank you for an excellent service, which we will recommend to others. The tents were magical. The fire made it perfect and was needed that night. Professional appearance, earthy, warm, spacious. Met expectations excellently. Warm and sturdy with a natural glow of light from the outside.

Magnakata arrived on site and were a relaxed team of workers who listened to our needs, offered us professional advice from previous experience and put together an event space in a very calm and relaxed manner. The company accommodated us very well and got on with their work without any troubleshooting. The tent went up in 1 day and we did not need to be on site after a short consultation about location.

Ed wanted only the best for us and our particular needs. The company provided us with a beautiful earthy party space which created a real special and alternative environment for our wedding party. I highly recommend the fire since it really created a cozy vibe and it was needed as the day got cooler. Everyone loved this touch and it really helped to enhance an intimate feel. Our choice of Magnakata was a roaring success. I would be very happy to recommend them to anyone for an interesting, visually beautiful and memorable event. “

Paula & Emmet, Galway City – August 2011

“ Surpassed our expectations – looked great but structurally sound as well – and very clean! Genuinely we were delighted with everything, great product, great attention to detail. Ed and his crew were fantastic and the Katas gave a massive WOW factor and energy to our wedding – not alone the guests but all service providers loved it!

P.S. Our only problem is thinking/planning a big enough party so we can have you guys back again!! ”

Dan & Barbara, Timoleague, West Cork – July 2011

“ They were stunning and surpassed my expectations. Much larger inside than they first appear to be. They can be easily dressed up for a more sophisticated look or dressed down for a more relaxed feel. Ed was fantastic to deal with, professional but very approachable and knew exactly what I was looking for. Everyone at the wedding was majorly impressed and I couldn’t recommend you more. “

Georgie & Steve, Waterford – July 2011

“From the moment we contacted Ed, he was personable and professional throughout our dealings. It was definitely going to be a challenge as we were living in Australia and our wedding was on Inishbofin Island, Ireland. Inishbofin isn’t the easiest place to get to, let alone bring tipi’s and cars over to, but Magnakata managed all the logistics with ease.

Not only did we have an amazing experience with Ed and his team, but our wedding guests still talk about Ed and the lads. They became part of the whole experience. The day before the wedding, a storm hit the island and the winds picked up. We have to thank Ed and the guys for keeping a poker face the whole day as they tightened and fastened the ropes. These Tipi’s are made for Ireland’s wild weather! The storm passed and they returned the next morning to wish us all the best under a much calmer day.

Magnakata truly went over and beyond to make our wedding day beyond anything we had ever dreamt of. It wouldn’t have been the same without them with us over the 3 days.” 

David & Bronwyn, Inishbofin – June 2011

“ Thank you so much! They were prefect, beautiful, warm, and unusual and created such a great atmosphere. Magnakata made our dreams come true. They literally bent over backwards to help us have the day we wanted. They were consummate professionals and total perfectionists. They also had great pearls of wisdom to share when organising a big event. We couldn’t have asked for more from the Tipis either – they were magical! Totally warm and comfortable and created the relaxed vibe we wanted. We spent the entire weekend in them and didn’t want to leave! We hope we can get them again for a massive party on our 10yr anniversary. “

Carla & Chris, Ballintoy – June 2011

“ We hired Magnakata for our wedding at Mount Stewart and frankly the Tipis made the wedding. We dealt directly with Ed and he simply couldn’t do enough for us. He made the day seamless and worked closely with the venue and other suppliers, Ed was very organised and helpful at all times. I was particularly reassured when Ed called the caterers and Mount Stewart to liaise with them about details, especially as we were organising the event from England. I couldn’t recommend them enough. Magnakata made our wedding unique. “

Chris & Sonya, Mount Stewart – May 2011

“ Everything was excellent. Service/Delivery was prompt, Kata was erected and dismantled efficiently and with minimum fuss, and the ground was left very tidy afterwards. Members of the team were professional and courteous – we couldn’t even persuade them to have a cup of tea!  Magnakata provided a first class, professional and personal service that I could not fault. The attitude of Ed and the team ensured we had our wedding with the minimum of fuss, but plenty of affability. It was a talking point for friends and wider circle for some time afterwards and I would have no hesitation in recommending Magnakata to others – an amazing experience and a great way to get married. ”

Una, Ballycastle – May 2011

“ From the first phone call to the event start and end, pure professionalism. You did everything possible on one of the worst days of the year, you delivered – amazing to watch. Absolute professionalism from start to finish. Gale force winds outside, log fire inside. The event was truly memorable. Amazing people, amazing product, amazing event. “

Donald Russell International, Clonee, Co Meath – May 2011

 “ The Katas were a really beautiful addition to the festival. They created an intimate venue yet were stylish and bohemian at the same time. I would very much recommend Magnakata for any event you would like to hold outdoors. They provided a beautiful main stage for the Spirit of Folk festival and Dunderry Park is already getting enquiries about hosting weddings on the grounds in the tents”

Spirit of Folk, Dunderry Park – September 2011

“It was great. This is the second year we have used Magnakata and it’s great. It looks amazing and really stands out in the crowd of traditional tents and marquees. The service was amazing, everything was set up and ready to go when we arrived onsite and the lads even popped over late the night before to make sure everything was okay. I would recommend the Kata to anyone looking to stand out in a crowd. They are easily branded inside to suit miscellaneous marketing requirements and when closed you feel extremely shielded from the elements.”
