Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


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

Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?



You can use a marquee for a wedding at any time the year. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.

If anything about the wedding is unsuited to a marquee, such as exposure to strong winds, you can plan for a change in location.

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



You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.

Cold weather isn’t any bother, and the loved ones you’ve invited can be kept comfortable even in winter.

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.

Make sure you don’t commit to a wedding date before double-checking the weather forecast.

Are your marquees waterproof?



They are but the ground itself presents water risk in the event of heavy rain and less than optimal soil conditions.

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?

The time will depend on the size of the marquee.

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.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



Although marquees can be set up on different surfaces, we do need to secure them to the ground.

We will tell you if the site is suitable after we check it as part of the site visit.

Do I need matting?



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

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

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 may but the cuttings must be taken away if you’re not using matting, and make sure to cut it well in advance so the grass doesn’t stick to the marquee.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



Yes, we do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

We do not, however, hire kitchen equipment.

features), heating, ivory lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit) in the initial quote.

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.

Are your marquees lined?



Not necessarily.
