Whether you fancy having your wedding reception at your family home or you would like to celebrate your union in the gorgeous grounds of a stately home, a marquee offers a great deal of flexibility when it comes to location. The idea of getting married outside, in the glorious sunshine with flowers blooming, is many people’s dream but it can be hard to predict the temperamental West Country weather. Therefore, hiring a marquee is the perfect way to enjoy the great outdoors without the worry of the rain dampening you or your spirits.

A Blank Canvas

You may have been dreaming about this day for years, so you are likely to be buzzing with ideas on how your big day will look. Whether your style is boho chic or Hollywood glamour, a marquee provides a blank canvas which can be tailored to your desires and will enable you to carry your vision out to perfection.  From flooring to furniture, you can customise almost everything.

No Capacity Compromises

Finding a venue which is both available on your selected date and can accommodate your party size can be a tall order. The excitement of planning your wedding can quickly wear off if you have spent most of a day making fruitless phone calls. The beauty of a marquee is that you will never to compromise on the size of your party. You could even link multiple marquees together if you intend to have a massive shindig!

Food for Thought

Hiring a marquee means that you can forget about being constrained to set menus or package deals. This allows you to choose a caterer who will create a truly unique wedding meal. To create a relaxed summer vibe, why not have a barbeque or treat your guests to a hog roast?
