Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?
No matter the season, you may be able to use a marquee. But it’s still important to consider whether the site and the weather on the day will be suitable.
These preparations can help you see whether you might need to change the site of the marquee if it’s in an area with too much wind.

It is certainly possible.
We can take steps to make sure your friends and family are nice and cosy throughout the wedding, no matter what the season.

How will the wedding marquee cope with at adverse weather conditions?
In extreme conditions, traditional marquees may not hold up, while on a smaller scale, torrential rain and windy conditions can result in a noisy marquee and muddy grounds in excess rain.
