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?



There isn’t a reason why marquees cannot be used throughout the year for weddings. However, you should take note of anything that might be an issue, such as the weather forecast for the day and the suitability of the site.

This way, a venue or site that is particularly exposed to prevailing winds will not be suitable and an alternative location can be considered.

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



You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.

Cold weather isn’t any bother, and the loved ones you’ve invited can be kept comfortable even in winter.

There will be a number of heating units, including a backup, to keep you warm, and only charged on a fuel basis and not per unit.

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.

Make sure you don’t commit to a wedding date before double-checking the weather forecast.

Are your marquees waterproof?



Yes, but it is important to note that without good soil conditions, heavy rain could cause ground-level water seepage.

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?



it can be hard to judge when a booking needs to be made.

However, if you have a date in mind, you should inform us so that we can let you know if it is available and when a date is selling out so you can secure it if you wish.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



This depends on the size of the marquee you wish to use.

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

How do I know what size of marquee I’ll need for my wedding?



We can help you choose the size once you tell us how many guests you’ll have, and whether you want a dance floor, DJ area or bar as well.

Your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will affect the space needed.

We can offer advice and guidance once we inspect the site.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



It is important that the ground allows us to secure the marquee to it directly but there are many surfaces which will allow this.

We will tell you if the site is suitable after we check it as part of the site visit.

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.

Dance floors should be supported by matting, but a catering tent might be able to go without.

Should I cut the grass?



This is possible but do it in advance to make sure that it doesn’t stick to the marquee surface, and if you’re not using matting, take away the cuttings.

Your choice and needs will affect any other finishes or equipment.

When is site meeting necessary?



A site visit is necessary immediately after you receive a quote.

The site must be inspected to measure its size and also determine if it is a good environment for a marquee.

Are your marquees lined?



Not necessarily.

Lined marquees are available for those who prefer them.

What about electricity?



Power can be sourced from a building nearby, as you should not need very much.

A generator might be needed for backup power.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



You can have between 6 and 12 people to a single table.

However, as the client, you can determine the seating arrangements if you wish.
