There are so many venue choices for a bride and groom who are planning a wedding, so why have a marquee wedding? Well, there many benefits to having a wedding reception in a marquee rather than a traditional venue and that’s what we’ll be discussing in this blog.

Create a Unique Wedding Venue

We build each of our wedding marquees to order, customised for the site. So one of the best answers for the ‘why have a marquee wedding’ question, is that it’s a great way to create a bespoke and unique wedding venue.  We help our clients turn wedding plans into reality. Over the last 20 years, we’ve been able to build weddings marquees that include outside elements like fountains, trees, and even a swimming pool, part of the event decor!

Have a Wedding Marquee in Your Garden

A wedding in a garden is a whimsical way to celebrate your nuptials so another benefit of a marquee wedding is that you can hold your reception in the garden of your family home. Marquees come in a range of sizes, so a small selection of guests or a larger weatherproof marquee can be created to suit your needs.

Being based in the South West, there are so many country homes that are perfect for weddings! And our team take the greatest of care on site to ensure that your garden looks great before, during and after the wedding.

Have a Wedding in the Devon Countryside

Just picture it – a rustic wedding in the heart of the Devon countryside! With a wedding marquee, you can plan the positioning of the tent so that every view is picture perfect. Our marquees can be built with sides that open out to let in the summer breeze or with a clear top to let the sunshine in. No electric? No problem. We can supply all the electric, lighting, heating and more for your guests, which means you can leave the logistics to us.

Theme Your Wedding Marquee

Lots of people choose a marquee wedding because the tent becomes your canvas (see what we did there) allowing you to fully commit to your wedding theme or colour scheme. We use clearspan marquee frames that keep each of our structures open plan, so you can decorate fill the space as you wish.  And if you need some inspiration, we have a range of features to help you tailor the space to your specifications, even matching the interior decor to the bride’s maid’s dresses!

Accommodate Your Wedding Party

You can hire a wedding marquee that suits a small intimate weddings or marquees that can seat 100 or up to 1000 wedding guests. So unlike wedding venues that require a minimum number of guests or have strict limits on capacity, if the location is right, we can build your marquee wedding to fit the size of your guest list.

The Time is Yours

Once your marquee wedding is erected, it is yours. This means that many of our clients enjoy having a marquee wedding because you can be more flexible with timings for your preparation, celebration and pack up. This flexibility helps to reduce the stress of the day, allowing you to focus on what matters most.
