Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s
What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?
When choosing between different marquees, there are some things you should keep in mind, like where you want to have the wedding, how involved you want to be in the wedding plans, if you have a venue that needs alteration, and whether you have faith in the company that’s applying your marquees.
What styles of wedding marquee are available?
Our marquees go from 3.6 m² to 9m x 27m, and they include, Frame Marquees, Canopy Marquees, Heated Marquees, Entrance Marquees, Modern Wedding Marquees, Luxury Wedding Marquees, Bespoke Wedding Marquees, and more.
Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?
There isn’t a reason why marquees cannot be used throughout the year for weddings. Don’t forget to consider planning aspects like the weather and the site at which the wedding will be held.
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 will have no trouble ensuring your guests are warm throughout the ceremony.
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?
The marquee may not be able to withstand very harsh weather, and windy and rainy conditions can make for an unpleasant outdoor experience.
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?
Yes, but it is important to note that without good soil conditions, heavy rain could cause ground-level water seepage.
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?
We cannot tell you how early you should make the booking.
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.
How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?
The time will depend on the size of the marquee.
The erection usually ranges between 1-3 days before the event and the marquee is left for an additional day after the event.
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.
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?

Could a marquee damage cables or pipes running underneath?

Will your marquees damage our garden?
There will be no damage that remains in the long-term.
The colour of the grass under the marquee may fade slightly but should revert quickly.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
This is no trouble.
We have no difficulty moving our marquees into most sites, as they are easily portable.
However, we will add a charge for any site that is very difficult to access or is over 25m from the access point.
How much space will I need to set up my Wedding Marquee?
Your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will affect the space needed.
We will inspect the site and advise you on the best course of action.
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 check the ground during our site visit and tell you whether it will work.
Do I need matting?
This will vary depending on the event, but matting generally looks preferable.
We usually recommend matting for weddings for this reason and also because high heels on grass can be uncomfortable and unpleasant.
You will need matting for a dance floor, although you might not need it for a catering tent.
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.
Do you decorate the wedding marquees?
Yes, we do.
Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?
Generators and luxury toilets can be made available as well as the marquees.
Unfortunately, we do not hire kitchen equipment.

When is site meeting necessary?
The site visit must take place right after you have received your quote.

Are your marquees lined?

Any close-by building should be able to provide power, as you will not need much.
