I can't recommend James, Kersti and the team at Marquees and Pavilions more highly. I have worked with them on numerous projects over many years on some complex and high profile wedding and event projects. They always have brilliant attention to detail, service and professionalism in the planning which is much needed for my discerning wedding planning clients and luxury venues. The team on site are a delight, with nothing too much trouble. I will never forget the project during the 'beast from the East' in 2018 where the team worked tirelessly in minus 7 for 3 days to ensure they built our structure perfectly and didn't let us down, where others might have done. Thank you James and team!

I've worked with Marquees & Pavilions for a number of years, and would highly recommend them. They're super to work with throughout the planning process, in the lead up to, and on the day of an event. They couldn't be more helpful with any queries, advice and recommendations, and always produce the most beautiful marquees for my clients!

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
