Marquee flooring

Citing a marquee on grass is the cheapest option for flooring, but there are several different flooring types you can choose from. Not every site is lucky enough to have grass, and, in addition, some couples don’t want to see even a blade of grass at their wedding in Eastergate. A popular flooring choice is matting, which is durable, simple and versatile. Matting or coconut matting involves using traditional coir flooring mats which are made from the husk of the coconut.

Other options you can choose from include:

  • Carpet on hard flooring
  • Hard flooring
  • Wooden hard flooring

Our carpets come in various colours including green, blue, grey, vermilion and beige, and can also be continued outside the marquee in the form of an entrance, walkway or the extension of your space in Eastergate.
