Frequently Asked Questions:
What do you provide?
We provide everything you need to give you a temporary venue for your event. This means a structure, complete with flooring, linings and drapes, lighting and heating, electrical distribution and power supply. We also supply dining furniture, outdoor furniture, lounge furniture, dance floors, stages and bar. We can even supply loos if you need those too.Typically the table linen, crockery, cutlery and glassware will come from your caterer. In the catering (kitchen) marquee, we provide provide tables, electrical distribution and lighting inside and outside the marquee. Your caterer will arrange their own equipment including ovens, hot cupboards, fridges, etc.You will need to arrange a florist, band, and anything else your imagination allows. Often, but not always, our clients also employ a wedding or party planner to help bring everything together. We do of course work alongside them to ensure your wedding marquee meets all your requirements.
How much space do I need for a marquee?
We recommend a space 9m x 24m for a wedding with 100 guests; 12m x 24m for 150 guests and 15m x 27m for 200.The beauty of our modular marquees means that several can be joined together to make the most of the ground you have available.Typically, a wedding marquee allows for a wet weather reception space which will be reused later as dance and bar, and a separate space for a dining room. Our designs allow around 0.8sqm – 1sqm per guest for the reception space and 1.2sqm for the dining room. You may also need to consider whether space is required for the kitchen marquee (allow 6m x 9m initially), toilets, buffet areas, photo booths, lounge areas and outdoor reception areas.
What if the site I have in mind has no power, water or toilets?
Most of the events we are involved with require a generator because of the amount of power required, irrespective of their proximity to a house.If additional toilets are required, we can provide these too. Event loos are self-contained, requiring only a power supply (see above) and do not need access to water of drains.Your caterers might expect to have a water supply near the kitchen area, so if you are not able to provide this then you should warn them in advance so they can make arrangements.
What insurance cover do you have?
We hold a minimum cover of £10 million of employers liability and of £10 million for public and products liability. We're more than happy to supply you with a copy of our liability insurance if required.
How much does a marquee cost to hire?
Each event is unique which means we price each job individually based on the amount of space covered and specification required. To provide an idea of cost, a client will typically spend between £5,000 and £15,000 for a fully furnished marquee for 100-150 guests. The largest individual costs within this are normally for the marquee structure, the floor, loos and generator. Our initial quote includes a breakdown of items and equipment required for your wedding such as marquees, pavilions, flooring, lining, lighting, furniture, heating, loos, generator and electrical distribution. We also include a menu of optional extras for your consideration. We do not include, and do not supply, quotes for catering, table linen, flowers, musicians or other entertainment.
