Have you already booked a Wedding Marquee?
No: Let’s take a look at different wedding marquee types and what they are useful for to ensure that you make the best decision for your day.
Wedding Marquee Hire Types
Sail Cloth Marquees
Our Sail Cloth Marquees offer a 360° view of your wedding venue. There are two options with this Marquee. One; you can have the traditional sides rolled up to let air flow through. Two; you can have transparent sides to protect you and your guests from the elements whilst still enjoying the view.
Sail Cloth Marquees must be set up on grassy areas due to their wooden guide poles & ropes. The difference between this and a Traditional Marquee are the rounded ends and slightly more modern feel!
Traditional marquees are exactly that, traditional. They look beautiful with a country house backdrop or set in serene gardens. Like the Sail Cloth Marquee, the Traditional must be set up on grassy areas.
Traditional Marquees are a top choice for many of our customers. The benefit of having a traditional marquee is that it’s a welcome escape from the sun. The fabric used means that the marquee is breathable. It’s also a perfect ‘blank canvas’ ready and waiting for you to add your stamp.
Clear Span Marquees
The beauty of a Clear Span Marquee is that it can be assembled anywhere. Limited space? No problem. High winds? No problem. The ease of installation for this marquee means that you can reduce any potential disasters occurring on your big day.
Clear Span Marquees have no internal poles. This means that you have lots of internal space to play with when decorating. You could even go as far as having some cherry blossom trees or even a fountain!
Our Transparent Traditional Marquee really is something special. We’re a family run company and have been in business since the early 90s. Although we love our own traditions, we like to bring something new to the table that can provide our clients and their guests with that wow factor.
It’s not advised to have this marquee as your main entertaining area in the height of summer. It can get a bit hot and sweaty. In summer, this Marquee can be added to a Traditional or Sail Cloth Marquee as an evening entertainment section. Get your guests dancing under the stars!
Tipi weddings are completely magical. Whether you want to have your tipi assembled in a woodland area or wildflower meadow, Tipis are extremely versatile. You can link any number of Tipis together and even raise the sides. Perfect for wedding parties large or small.
A Tipi is a very popular marquee alternative.
Canopies & Chinese Hat Marquees
A Chinese Hat Marquee is the perfect way to add extra space to your main marquee. You could optionally house your caterers or bar here to allow more space for your guests.
Canopies are perfect for providing shelter for a Garden Wedding!
Now that we’ve taken a look at the different types of Wedding Marquees that are available for hire, let’s take a look at how you can decorate them!
