Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s
What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?
In order to know if a marquee is right for your day, you have to consider several factors including: your budget, if you have a special location in mind, if you want to be involved in the entire process, if you want to have the freedom to change the size of your function space, and if you are confident about your choice of marquee supplier.
What styles of wedding marquee are available?
Our smallest marquees are 3.6m², and the largest are 9x27m, with a choice between modern, bespoke, and luxury wedding marquees, and canopy marquees, frame marquees, entrance marquees, and heated marquees.
Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?
No matter the season, you may be able to use a marquee. Don’t forget to consider planning aspects like the weather and the site at which the wedding will be held.
This can give you the chance to choose a new location if you were planning to put the marquee in the spot that is exposed to a lot of wind.
Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?
Cold weather isn’t any bother, and the loved ones you’ve invited can be kept comfortable even in winter.
Because we only charge for the amount fuel used and not for the number of units, we always provide as many units as you need for heating and we also have a backup available.
How will the wedding marquee cope with at adverse weather conditions?
Heavy rain and wind can make an outdoor event unpleasant, noisy, muddy, and harsher weather can even damage the marquee itself.
Because of this, you should make sure to check the weather that’s been forecast before you choose your wedding date.
Are your marquees waterproof?
They are, but in extreme rain and bad soil conditions, water is likely to seep under the marquee.
Hard floor and carpet might be added to help, but this is an additional expense.
How far in advance of the wedding date do I need to hire the marquee?
It is difficult to advise on how early a booking needs to be made.
All the same, you should let us know if you have a date you want for the wedding, as we can tell you if the day is open.
How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?
This will vary depending on size.
The marquee is generally erected on to three days in advance and taking down a day after the event takes place.
How do I know what size of marquee I’ll need for my wedding?
We will need details on your guest list, as well as additions like whether you want a dance floor, bar, or DJ area, before determining the possible size.
How much room does a disco take up?
A good measurement is to allow 5 foot for the width of one side of the dance floor.
Do we need a generator?
It is recommended you have a generator ready to take over in case there a power cut.
Do uplighters provide enough light?

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
This is totally fine.
The marquees are easy to transport, and we can move them into almost any site.
Customers should note, however, that very difficult access or a site that is more than 25m from the access point will mean an additional charge.
How much space will I need to set up my Wedding Marquee?
Factors such as your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will determine the size needed.
After inspecting the site, we can help you decide.
What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?
The marquee must be secured to the ground, although this still allows us to set up on various surfaces.
We will check the ground during our site visit and tell you whether it will work.
Do I need matting?
Matting can improve the look of the setup, but may not be suitable for all events.
For this reason and because it can make it much easier to wear high heels, we generally advise matting for weddings.
You will need matting for a dance floor, although you might not need it for a catering tent.
Should I cut the grass?
You can, but cutting it too close to the day means the grass can stick to the marquee surface, and any cut grass should be removed unless you’re going to have matting.
Do you decorate the wedding marquees?
Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?
We have luxury toilets and generators available as well as our marquees.
Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.
What is included in the initial quote?
The cost of the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets, bar, catering, etc.), heating, lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit), will all be included in the quote.
Additional finishes and equipment are up to you.
When is site meeting necessary?
Once you have received the quote, that visit must take place as soon as possible.
We will evaluate the environment to see if it will work for a marquee and check the size.
Are your marquees lined?
They do not need to be lined.
You can do the lined marquee if you want.
What about electricity?
Marquees do not generally need much electricity, and you can get power from the building nearby.
A generator may be required as backup.
Please contact us if you have any questions about hiring a marquee or party tent.
Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
You certainly can.
We are there to make sure that your wedding goes just the way you imagined.
We will assist and advise you when necessary.
Can you suggest venues where to set up my Wedding Marquee?
This depends on where you live.

How many guests can I seat around a table?
A table can take as many as 12 guests and as few as 6 guests.
Nevertheless, you have the power to determine the seating arrangements as a client.
