Due to the coronavirus and lockdown restrictions, the majority of this year’s wedding season has been postponed, which means that wedding suppliers and venues are being snapped up even quicker than ever. With this in mind, marquee wedding hire in Essex and Suffolk is becoming more and more popular.


Marquee weddings already provide complete flexibility however with government guidelines and social distancing still in place, marquees are becoming even more of a perfect solution. If you already have a marquee booked, it may be a simple process to upgrade to a larger structure or a solution to simply increase the space available at your current venue to allow for additional guests.

.Why Should I consider a marquee for my wedding?

  • You can create more space which means you won’t have to reduce your number of guests.
  • A marquee can be the perfect extension to your current wedding venue. This will help ensure that social distancing is possible throughout your reception and you’ll be able to easily separate any vulnerable guests if need be.
  • We can provide structures for your wedding entertainment so you can move the dance floor outside.
  • It is recommended to provide additional hand washing and toilet facilities for your guests, both of which can be portable solutions for outside a venue. If interested, get in touch as we can also help to arrange these services.

The great thing about a marquee wedding is that you have full flexibility and control over your wedding. You just simply need some land and the rest is up to you. Whether it’s a farmers field or you’re lucky enough to have a large enough garden, once the marquee is in place, the world is your oyster. You can choose the layout – where the bar and DJ go, decide how to decorate and have total choice in outside caterers and suppliers.
