Marquee Weddings

So you have got engaged and are now considering options for the big day. The decision on where to get married can be a tough one and needs great thought. A versatile wedding venue is something that many couples desire but find hard to come across as they all have the plus and minus points.

If you are having a church ceremony then you will find a wider variety of locations for your wedding reception as not all venues will have a license to hold civil ceremonies so this can be an option to consider. However, if you are not religious in any way or just simply prefer to have the ceremony and reception at the same venue so as to keep everything under one roof, there are a huge amount of alternative venues available.

One of the most versatile venues is a marquee, as they can be designed and built into a variety of sizes and shapes to accommodate exactly what you need, with areas sectioned off for kitchens, soft seating, bars, dining, a sectioned off area for the evening reception and corridors for portable toilets of which can be hired at a very high standard with all the mod cons.

The shell of a marquee can also include sheltered walkways to the entrance door, so if it does rain, you will be covered and kept dry. The inside of a marquee is lined with double layers for insulation, and industrial heating will blow hot air into the marquee before your arrival, so you can be guaranteed warmth. There are options with the actual marquee lining as well. White solid lining or even lining with windows can be used if you wanted to use the natural light.

The flooring is solid and covered with a hard wearing neutral coloured carpet to allow the weight of all the equipment necessary to make a marquee wedding a day to remember.

Another plus point with a marquee is that you can choose your own caterers, so if you wanted something different such as Hog Roasts, Multicultural cuisine etc. you have that option, compared to Hotels where there is no choice but to have the actual Hotel cook the food for you with limited menus.

As one of the leading venue dressing companies in the North West, Woodyatt Warner have dressed a huge number of marquees in different styles, colours and themes for weddings in all seasons. A marquee is a blank canvas and works with all décor compared to certain venues such as Stately Homes and Castles where you may be very limited as to what you can do to decorate the venue to your specification. Spring and Summer weddings are great to bring in bright colours. With oranges, reds and browns for Autumn weddings, and finally for Winter weddings, a very popular choice is to use silvers, gold’s and neutral colours, all of which compliment the marquee.
