Our carpets are available in beige, vermilion, gravy, blue and green, and can also be used outside the marquee to form walkways, outdoor extensions of the marquee, and entrance foyers in Balcombe.

Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?



When looking at different marquees, make sure to keep things in mind like your budget, location, the venue, whether you need to make changes to the function space, and whether you are assured that you have the right marquee supplier.

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?



Marquees can be used at any wedding season. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.

By checking these things in advance, you can make sure that you don’t choose a site with very strong winds and you have the option to change locations.

Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?



You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.

We are more than capable of keeping your guests warm throughout the ceremony in colder months.

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?



Heavy rain and wind can make an outdoor event unpleasant, noisy, muddy, and harsher weather can even damage the marquee itself.

Checking the weather forecast before your wedding is therefore vital.

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.

You can add hard floor and carpet, but this can be expensive.

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.

However, telling us the date you’re planning can help us plan, as we will be able to tell you if the date is available.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



The time will depend on the size of the marquee.

The marquee is put up around 1 to 3 days before the event takes place and left for a day after.

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?



Certainly.

We advise that you provide a generator in case there’s an issue with power supply.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are perfect for an atmospheric feeling to your event.

But they will not be very bright.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



Our marquees are 100% fire resistant.

They are made from materials that conform to British Standard specifications.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



We’re covered for public and product insurance.

While the marquee is under hire, the customer must provide insurance for damage, both for the marquee and equipment, and theft.

Could a marquee damage cables or pipes running underneath?



The steel pegs used to secure the marquee in the ground can cause damage to underground drainage cables or pipes.

It’s important to let us know if there are any services underground that we should avoid.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



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

There might be some fading of the grass under the marquee, but they should return to the colour scheme.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



Weddings, in general, have many variables. Marquee should be considered in the same way.

Aspects such as size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can be different for each person.

We can meet all your requirements for your ideal wedding ceremony.

Get in touch for a complete quote.

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



No.

We can move the marquees into most sites without any issues.

If there is a site that is over 25m from the nearest access point or is difficult to reach, however, 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.

After inspecting the site, we can help you decide.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



There are many suitable surfaces, but we must be able to secure the marquee directly to the ground

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.

Matting is recommended for weddings, both for this and because it makes wearing high heels more comfortable.

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

Should I cut the grass?



This is possible but do it in advance to make sure that it doesn’t stick to the marquee surface, and if you’re not using matting, take away the cuttings.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



Yes.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

Along with marquees, we have generators and luxury toilets.

We do not, however, hire kitchen equipment.

What is included in the initial quote?



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?



this is done right after you get the 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 always.

However, we can line them if you want.

What about electricity?



Power can be sourced from a building nearby, as you should not need very much.

You might need a backup generator.

For further information about our party tents and marquees, don’t hesitate to get in contact.

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.

Any advice needed can be given.

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



This depends on your area

Let us know your area, and we will provide suggestions for wedding marquee locations.
