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.

Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?
Marquees can be used at any wedding season. 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.
Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?
We can make sure your guests are comfortable in colder weather.
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.
Make sure you don’t commit to a wedding date before double-checking the weather forecast.
Are your marquees waterproof?
They are, but in extreme rain and bad soil conditions, water is likely to seep under the marquee.
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.
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.

This will be determined by the marquee size.
Usually, the marquee is set up between one and three days before the event it’s needed for and is taken down a day after the event.
How do I know what size of marquee I’ll need for my wedding?
The size will depend on whether you want a dance floor, DJ area or bar, as well as your guest list.
How much room does a disco take up?
Make sure the dance floor has five foot of width on one side.
Do we need a generator?
We recommend that you have a generator on standby in case of power failure.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
We have no difficulty moving our marquees into most sites, as they are easily portable.
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?
Your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will affect the space needed.
We would advise you on what to do after inspecting the site.
What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?
While we can erect our marquees on different surfaces, it will still need to be secured to the ground directly.
During the site visit, we will access the ground and let you know if a particular surface is suitable.
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.
Matting is usually needed for a dance floor, but not necessarily for a catering tent.
Should I cut the grass?
This can be a good idea, but it must be removed if you are not using matting and it might stick to the marquee if you cut it too close to the wedding date.
Do you decorate the wedding marquees?
Yes, we do.
Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?
We make available generators and luxury toilets along with the marquees.
We do not have kitchen equipment to hire, however.
