Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s
What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?

We have Modern Wedding Marquees, Bespoke Wedding Marquees, Luxury Wedding Marquees, Canopy Marquees, Frame Marquees, Entrance Marquees, and Heated Marquees, etc, ranging from 3.6mx3.6m to 9mx27m.
Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?
Marquees can be used at any wedding season. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.
This can give you the chance to choose a new location if you were planning to put the marquee in the spot that is exposed to a lot of wind.
Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?
Yes, it is.
We can make sure your guests are comfortable in colder weather.
There will be a number of heating units, including a backup, to keep you warm, and only charged on a fuel basis and not per unit.
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?
The marquee itself is waterproof, but if there is a lot of rain and less-than-sturdy ground, the floor could become wet.
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?

This will be determined by the marquee size.
The marquee should be in place between one and three days before the wedding and will be removed the day afterward.

Allow five foot along the width of one side of a dance floor.

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?
Your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will affect the space needed.
We can offer advice and guidance once we inspect 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.
We always check the ground during the site visit and will inform you as to its suitability.
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.
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?
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.
We do not, however, hire kitchen equipment.
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?
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.
If you prefer a lined marquee you can select one.
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.
Contact us with any other questions about one of our marquees or party tents.

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