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?



Marquees can be used at any wedding season. But it’s still important to consider whether the site and the weather on the day will be suitable.

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?



Yes.

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

Because we only charge for the amount fuel used and not for the number of units, we always provide as many units as you need for heating and we also have a backup available.

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.

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

Are your marquees waterproof?



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

A safe but expensive alternative is to opt for a hard floor with carpet.

How far in advance of the wedding date do I need to hire the marquee?



it can be hard to judge when a booking needs to be made.

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?



There are various factors affecting the size including whether you want a dance floor, bar, DJ area, as well as guest list, which we will need.

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?



Absolutely.

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.

They are unsuitable for a brightly lit event.

They are fully fire resistant.

Factors such as your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will determine the size needed.

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?



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.

You will need matting for a dance floor, although you might not need it for a 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.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



Certainly.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

However, we do not have kitchen equipment for hire.

Our initial quote should include the marquee of the size you choose, lighting, internal power distribution including sockets, bar, catering, etc., heating, lining, doors, windows and the correct size of floor.

You can tell us if there are any other finishes or equipment on your wish list.

When is site meeting necessary?



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

We will need to assess the size and environment of the location to make sure the site 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 backup generator might be required.

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

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



You certainly can.

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?



This will vary depending on location.
