You can use a marquee for a wedding at any time the year. 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.

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?



You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.

We can take steps to make sure your friends and family are nice and cosy throughout the wedding, no matter what the season.

We always make sure there are plenty of heating units including a spare, and will only charge for the fuel, not per unit.

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.

Checking the weather forecast before your wedding is therefore vital.

The marquees are waterproof but if there is heavy rain and poor soil, water might seep in underneath.

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?

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?



This depends on the size of the marquee you wish to use.

The erection usually ranges between 1-3 days before the event and the marquee is left for an additional day after the event.

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?

It depends on your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band.

We can offer advice and guidance once we inspect the site.

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.

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

Do I need matting?



Generally, matting looks better, but it depends on your event.

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 cutting it too close to the day means the grass can stick to the marquee surface, and any cut grass should be removed unless you’re going to have matting.

Yes, we do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

We have luxury toilets and generators available as well as our marquees.

Your choice and needs will dictate all other finishes and equipment.

When is site meeting necessary?



Once you have received the quote, that visit must take place as soon as possible.

The site must be inspected to measure its size and also determine if it is a good environment for a marquee.

Are your marquees lined?



Not necessarily.

If you prefer a lined marquee you can select one.

What about electricity?



Usually, marquees don’t require a lot of electricity; which can be drawn from any nearby building.

You may need to provide a generator for backup.
