Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?



Before selecting a marquee, make sure to consider different factors, including your location, your budget, your involvement in the planning, whether you want to change anything about the venue, and whether you think your marquee supplier is reliable.

What styles of wedding marquee are available?



You can choose between marquee styles such as modern, bespoke, and luxury wedding marquees, as well as canopy, frame, entrance, and heated marquees, and sizes between 3.6m² and 9x27m.

Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?



Marquees can be used all year-round weddings. However, it is important to put certain factors like weather and site factors into consideration.

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?



You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.

We can make sure your guests are comfortable in colder weather.

We charge based on the amount of fuel use and not the number of heating units – so in the colder weather, we equip the marquee with more heaters and also have a back-up unit always at the ready.

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.

It is therefore important to check the weather forecast before setting a date.

Are your marquees waterproof?



They are but the ground itself presents water risk in the event of heavy rain and less than optimal soil conditions.

You can add hard floor and carpet, but this can be expensive.

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.

All the same, you should let us know if you have a date you want for the wedding, as we can tell you if the day is open.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



The time will depend on the size of the marquee.

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 will need details on your guest list, as well as additions like whether you want a dance floor, bar, or DJ area, before determining the possible size.

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?



Yes.

The size will vary according to your guest list, bar, band, and whether you want a dance floor.

We will inspect the site and advise you on the best course of action.

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.

Part of the site visit involves checking the ground to make sure it’s suitable.

Do I need matting?



Matting can improve the look of the setup, but may not be suitable for all events.

Because of this, and because it allows for the use of high heels, we generally recommend matting for weddings.

If you have a dance floor you will need matting, but you can choose whether you want it for your 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.

We do.

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.

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

When is site meeting necessary?



this is done right after you get the quote.

The marquee needs a site that is the right size and has the right environment, both of which will be checked at the inspection.

Are your marquees lined?



Not necessarily.

Lined marquees are available for those who prefer them.

Marquees do not generally need much electricity, and you can get power from the building nearby.
