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.

Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?
There isn’t a reason why marquees cannot be used throughout the year for 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 will have no trouble ensuring your guests are warm throughout the ceremony.
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?
If the weather is unusually bad, the marquee might be damaged and even wind and rain can make conditions unpleasant with noise and mud.
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.
5 If you have additional funds, you might consider a hard floor and carpet to help.
How far in advance of the wedding date do I need to hire the marquee?
The perfect time for a booking is difficult to determine.
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.
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?
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?
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.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
Uplighters are perfect for an atmospheric feeling to your event.
They don’t have enough light for a well-lit party.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
Not at all.
We can easily move the marquees into almost any location, as they are designed to be portable.
However, a site that’s over 25m from the access point or has a tricky access point will incur an additional charge.
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.
After inspecting the site, we can help you decide.
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?
You will need to decide whether matting suits your event, but it can the better.
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?
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 generators, as well as luxury toilets, that can be included.
Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.
What is included in the initial quote?
The initial quote for a wedding marquee includes the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets for charging, bar, catering and other features), heating, softly pleated ivory lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit).
Your choice and needs will affect any other finishes or equipment.
When is site meeting necessary?
Once you have received the quote, that visit must take place as soon as possible.
We will evaluate the environment to see if it will work for a marquee and check the size.
Are your marquees lined?
Lined marquees are available for those who prefer them.
What about electricity?
Power can be sourced from a building nearby, as you should not need very much.
A generator might be needed for backup power.
