We have several lighting options you can choose from:

  • Disco ball lighting

Marquee flooring

Citing a marquee on grass is the cheapest option for flooring, but there are several different flooring types you can choose from. Erecting the marquee on grass is not always a viable option in Fittleworth, and in some cases, the couple are against the grass floor option. Matting is the most popular option because it is versatile, durable and simple. Coconut matting, or simply matting, is traditional coir floor mats, manufactured from coconut husk.

Other flooring options include:

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

Our green, blue, vermilion, beige and grey carpets can be used on the interior and exterior of the marquee in Fittleworth, and we can create extensions of your space outside the marquee, entrance areas and walkways.

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?



Our marquee types are Modern Wedding Marquees, bespoke wedding marquees, luxury wedding marquees, canopy marquees, frame marquees, entrance marquees, heated marquees, and you can choose from sizes as small as 3.6mx3.6m to 9mx27m.

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, you should take note of anything that might be an issue, such as the weather forecast for the day and the suitability of the site.

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.

Cold weather isn’t any bother, and the loved ones you’ve invited can be kept comfortable even in winter.

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?



Muddy conditions and rain on top of the marquee can be unpleasant, and severe weather can even cause damage to the marquee.

Checking the weather forecast before your wedding is therefore vital.

Are your marquees waterproof?



They are, but in extreme rain and bad soil conditions, water is likely to seep under the marquee.

A possible option is to add a hard floor and a carpet, although this could put you over-budget.

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.

Nevertheless, it’s important to give us your best estimate for the date, so you can make a booking if we have a date available.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



Each size of marquee takes a different time.

The marquee is generally erected on to three days in advance and taking down a day after the event takes place.

How do I know what size of marquee I’ll need for my wedding?



You will need to provide your full guest list and other information including if you want a dance floor, bar, DJ area, etc which will then be used to determine the marquee size that will be most appropriate.

How much room does a disco take up?



One side of the dance floor should have a width of 5 feet.

Do we need a generator?



Certainly.

It is our recommendation that a generator is made available, in case there is a power failure.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters can create a nice effect.

For bright lighting, additional lights will be required.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are fully fire resistant.

The materials they are made from are all created to British Standard specifications.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Public and product insurance are both included in Strawberry Marquees’ coverage.

During the hire period, coverage for damage to the marquee and equipment as well as theft is the responsibility of the customer.

Could a marquee damage cables or pipes running underneath?



Damage might be caused to drainage cables or pipes by the steel pegs used to secure the marquee.

If there any underground services, you should tell us in advance so we can avoid them.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There will be no damage that remains in the long-term.

Although the grass underneath the marquee can fade, it will not take long to get back to the way it was before.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



There are different aspects of every wedding. Marquees can also vary.

There is the size, furniture, lighting, flooring, etc. to consider for each client.

Our service can provide all you might want for your wedding.

Contact us today for an accurate quote.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?



Not at all.

Our marquees are highly portable, and we can access most areas without difficulty.

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?



This will vary depending 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.

We advise matting for weddings, as it can allow high heels to be worn more easily.

Dance floors should be supported by matting, but a catering tent might be able to go without.

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?



Always.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

Generators and luxury toilets can be made available as well as the marquees.

We do not have kitchen equipment to hire, however.

What is included in the initial quote?



We can include the cost of the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets for charging, bar catering, and other
features), heating, ivory lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit) in the initial quote.

All other finishes and equipment are subject to choice and necessity.

When is site meeting necessary?



We must perform a site visit as soon as you get a quote.

We need to measure the site and check whether it is suitable for a marquee.

Are your marquees lined?



Not all of them.

Lined marquees are available for those who prefer them.

What about electricity?



Any close-by building should be able to provide power, as you will not need much.

A generator may be required as backup.

Please contact us if you have any questions about hiring a marquee or party tent.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Of course!

We are there to make sure that your wedding goes just the way you imagined.

We will provide any necessary advice.

Can you suggest venues where to set up my Wedding Marquee?



The best venue may be determined by where you live.

We can give you suggestions for the location of the wedding marquee once you get in contact.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



6 to 12 is the usual number of guests for a table.

If you want a different seating plan, you can choose to change it.
