There isn’t a reason why marquees cannot be used throughout the year for weddings. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.

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?



Warmth shouldn’t be a problem.

We will have no trouble ensuring your guests are warm throughout the ceremony.

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

Do I need matting?



The ground might look better with matting, but this is up to you.

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.

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

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

When is site meeting necessary?



The site visit must take place right after you have received your quote.
