About us


Wow Event Hire was founded by Ben Marrin in 2004, to provide the expert knowledge and specialist products that bring that extra element of fun, excitement and style to your event. From intimate weddings and family gatherings to corporate events and large-scale, standout parties, we create it all.

The business has its roots in Cardiff but operates nationally. We provide services for over 600 events annually from single hire items to complete events. We are trusted suppliers to many of the premier venues in the region including The Celtic Manor Resort and the St David's Hotel & Spa. Our corporate customers include well-known brands such as L'Oreal and Go Compare, who are joined by many local private clients who trust us for their most special occasions.

Creativity is at the core of what we do; some of our products are available from other suppliers but we combine them in a way that makes us unique to the market, with every client benefiting from our years of industry experience. We own all our own stock and have a 10 year track record of delivering on our promises.

Our team operates to the highest standards and we understand that you only get one chance to create the perfect event.

Working at Celtic Manor Resort gave Ben the inspiration to set up Wow Event Hire.

“While working at the Celtic Manor Resort I realised that all events, large or small, need that something extra . I wanted Wow to provide products and services that gave a sense of occasion, style and most of all an element of fun and excitement. After 10 successful years, the expanding team and I look forward to helping our diverse range of clients, from professional organisers, agencies and corporates to venues and private clients, create wonderful experiences for their guests and clients over the next 10 years and beyond."  Ben Marrin
