If anything about the wedding is unsuited to a marquee, such as exposure to strong winds, you can plan for a change in location.

Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?



It is certainly possible.

We can make sure your guests are comfortable in colder weather.

We always make sure there are plenty of heating units including a spare, and will only charge for the fuel, not per unit.

How will the wedding marquee cope with at adverse weather conditions?



The marquee may not be able to withstand very harsh weather, and windy and rainy conditions can make for an unpleasant outdoor experience.

A safe but expensive alternative is to opt for a hard floor with carpet.

How far in advance of the wedding date do I need to hire the marquee?



The perfect time for a booking is difficult to determine.

Still, if you tell us the date you are planning for the wedding, we can tell you whether this is available, and you can book it if you want.

This will vary depending on size.

The marquee should be in place between one and three days before the wedding and will be removed the day afterward.

Should I cut the grass?



You can, but be sure to cart away the cuttings and if you’re not using matting, avoid cutting it too close to the event as the grass tends to stick to the marquee surface.
