No matter the season, you may be able to use a marquee. 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 way, a venue or site that is particularly exposed to prevailing winds will not be suitable and an alternative location can be considered.

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



It is certainly possible.

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?



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

Because of this, you should make sure to check the weather that’s been forecast before you choose your wedding date.

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