Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s
What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?

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. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.
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?
You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.
We can take steps to make sure your friends and family are nice and cosy throughout the wedding, no matter what the season.
Our heating charges are based on fuel, not on the heating units, and so we always have extra heaters, as well as a backup ready to go.
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.
It is therefore important to check the weather forecast before setting a date.
Are your marquees waterproof?
They are, but in extreme rain and bad soil conditions, water is likely to seep under the marquee.
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?
We cannot tell you how early you should make the booking.
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?
Each size of marquee takes a different time.
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?
There are various factors affecting the size including whether you want a dance floor, bar, DJ area, as well as guest list, which we will need.
How much room does a disco take up?
Allow five foot along the width of one side of a dance floor.
Do we need a generator?
It is our recommendation that a generator is made available, in case there is a power failure.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
Uplighters are appropriate if you want a simple atmospheric effect.
They don’t have enough light for a well-lit party.

Will your marquees damage our garden?
There is no fear of permanent damage.
The colour of the grass under the marquee may fade slightly but should revert quickly.

We can move the marquees into most sites without any issues.
However, there is an extra charge added if your site is very difficult to access or is more than 25m from the nearest available access point.
How much space will I need to set up my Wedding Marquee?
It depends on your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band.
We will inspect the site and advise you on the best course of action.
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 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.
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?
Our initial quote should include the marquee of the size you choose, lighting, internal power distribution including sockets, bar, catering, etc., heating, lining, doors, windows and the correct size of floor.
You can tell us if there are any other finishes or equipment on your wish list.
When is site meeting necessary?
Once you have received the quote, that visit must take place as soon as possible.
We need to measure the site and check whether it is suitable for a marquee.
Are your marquees lined?
They do not need to be lined.
If you prefer a lined marquee you can select one.
What about electricity?
Marquees do not generally need much electricity, and you can get power from the building nearby.
A backup generator might be required.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
Your wedding should be designed as you want it to be, and it’s our job to make that happen.
