Wedding Marquee Examples

A Wedding Marquee for 100 People

If you are thinking of having a wedding reception for around 100 guests, this is one example of a solution that we can offer for you.

  • One 30’ x 40’ Marquee
  • Interior linings with choice of colours
  • Matting floor throughout
  • Chandeliers or uplighters on a dimmer switch
  • Heating (cabinet heaters)
  • 10 x 5’ round tables
  • 4 x trestle tables
  • 100 x white bistro chairs
  • One16’ x 12’ parquet dance floor

A 30’ x 40’ marquee is the ideal size in that it is not too big making it feel empty or not too small making it feel over crowded. The type of marquee we use also gives you the option you to use window walls allowing you to take advantage of any views or surrounding features. If it’s a really hot day you also have the option of opening the marquee walls themselves.

On the inside of the marquee, the walls and roof are covered in beautiful linings to create that luxurious feel. We have a large selection of colours for you to choose from to go with your own individual taste. If you wanted to create something a little bit special you may want to have a twinkling night sky effect lining on the marquee.

To protect your lawn and also your guest’s shoes, matting is stretched taut across the ground and secured avoiding trip hazards to create a carpet type effect. However, sometimes this may not be suitable if the ground is dangerously uneven or if in winter where it can be permanently sodden. To combat these problems we would recommend a custom built wooden floor covered with carpet though this is considerably more expensive (A wooden floor with carpet cost approximately the same as the marquee itself and the matting). But ultimately the choice is down to you.

The marquee can be lit up depending on your choice by either chandeliers or uplighters. The chandeliers suspended from the roof, recreates a traditional candlelight effect whereas the uplighters, spread around the edge of the marquee create a more contemporary feel especially if you use coloured filters.

Heating is very important as no one ever likes being cold. The time of year will determine the number of heaters that you require, in winter you will need more heaters. For this size of marquee we recommend gas cabinet heaters as they are small, unobtrusive, quiet and easily adjustable. A little tip when the weather is cold is to put the heaters on an hour or two before people are due to arrive to get a comfortable ambient temperature from the start.

For your guests to dine on we provide 5’ round tables which will easily sit 10 people. You could use trestle tables to dine on but in our experience round tables are more preferable in allowing guests to talk to more people making it a more enjoyable experience for all. Trestle tables joined in a row are an ideal solution for the head table guests. The chairs provided are standard white bistro chairs but if you wanted something more specific for your wedding these can be provided but may cost a little more (Approximately £3 + VAT)

The parquet dance floor provides the ideal surface for the wedded couple to have their first dance and for your guests to party the night away once the dining has finished. There is also the option of a black and white dance floor if you should prefer it.

There are other things options you may want to take into consideration that are not mentioned in this sample. You may want to add an entrance canopy attached to the front of the marquee where your guests can mingle and maybe enjoy a glass of champagne. If you are catering on site, an additional marquee maybe required to store cooking equipment and to allow space for the preparation of the food.

If there are no facilities near by you may need to think about toilet hire which can range from the simplest tardis style toilet to a deluxe toilet trailer. You may also require a generator for all your electrical needs.

Other services you may want to take into consideration that are not mentioned in this sample to make your wedding truly unique. Things such as DJ’s and sound hire, catering, entertainers of all varieties, hiring in props for themed weddings, flowers, and exotic plants. We can help and advise you with all these to make sure you get what is right for you.

A Wedding Marquee for 200 People

If you are thinking of having a wedding reception for around 200 guests, this is one example of a solution that we can offer for you.

  • One 80’ x 40’ Marquee
  • One 30’ x 30’ entrance canopy
  • One 20’ x 20’ catering marquee
  • Interior linings with night sky over dance floor
  • Wooden floor with carpet throughout
  • Chandeliers and uplighters on a dimmer switch
  • Heating (cabinet heaters)
  • 20 x 5’ round tables
  • 8 x trestle tables
  • 200 x white bistro chairs
  • One16’ x 20’ parquet dance floor

An 80’ x 40’ marquee is the ideal size for your main marquee in that it is not too big making it feel empty or not too small making it feel over crowded. The 30’ x 30‘ entrance canopy is attached to the entrance of the main marquee creating an area where your guests can mingle and maybe enjoy a glass of champagne before the main reception. This area could also be turned into a bar later on.

The type of marquee we use gives you the option to use window walls allowing you to take advantage of any views or surrounding features. If it’s a really hot day you also have the option of opening the marquee walls themselves. The catering marquee would be attached to the marquee at a suitable place to allow your caterers to store cooking equipment and to allow space for the preparation of the food.

On the inside of both marquees, the walls and roofs are covered in beautiful linings to create that luxurious feel. Over the dance floor we would use twinkling nightsky roof linings to help create a party feel for later on. The linings can be trimmed by pelmets and drops around the edges in colours of your choice.

To protect your lawn and also your guest’s shoes, a custom built wooden floor with carpet would be provided throughout. This can be essential if the ground is particularly uneven or if the ground has suffered or is likely to suffer from inclement weather. If you wish to keep the costs down, a matting floor can be provided instead.

The marquees would be lit up with both chandeliers and uplighters both of which would be on dimmer switches allowing you to control the light intensity. In the main marquee, the chandeliers would be suspended above where your guests are dining.  Around the dance floor and below the nightsky effect uplighters will be placed around the edge of the marquee. In the entrance canopy a single chandelier will suspend from the roof providing plenty of light.

Heating is very important as no one ever likes being cold. The time of year will determine the number of heaters that you require, in winter you will need more heaters. For this size of marquee we recommend gas cabinet heaters as they are small, unobtrusive, quiet and easily adjustable. A little tip when the weather is cold is to put the heaters on an hour or two before people are due to arrive to get a comfortable ambient temperature from the start.

An 18th Birthday Party Marquee

A marquee for an 18th birthday is an ideal way of having the party at home but not in the house!

  • One 20’ x 30’ Marquee
  • Matting floor throughout
  • Uplighters on a dimmer switch
  • Heating (cabinet heaters)
  • One 16’ x 12’ parquet dance floor
  • 2 x trestle tables
  • 20 x white bistro chairs

A 20’ x 30’ marquee is an ideal size that can fit in pretty much any garden. It should allow enough room for plenty of dancing and for some seating and tables around the outside.

To protect your lawn and also your guest’s shoes, matting is stretched taut across the ground and secured avoiding trip hazards to create a carpet type effect. However sometimes this may not be suitable if the ground is dangerously uneven or if in winter where it can be permanently sodden. To combat these problems we would recommend a custom built wooden floor with carpet though this is considerably more expensive (A wooden floor with carpet cost approximately the same as the marquee itself and the matting). But ultimately the choice is down to you.

For this size marquee, uplighters would be spread around the outside and would on a dimmer so you can control the light levels. Chandeliers are a bit too overpowering and a bit to easy to swing from.

Heating is very important as no one ever likes being cold. The time of year will determine the number of heaters that you require; in winter you will need more heaters. For this size of marquee we recommend gas cabinet heaters as they are small, unobtrusive, quiet and easily adjustable. A little tip when the weather is cold is to put the heaters on an hour or two before people are due to arrive to get a comfortable ambient temperature from the start.

The parquet dance floor provides the ideal surface for people to dance on in the marquee.
Trestle tables are provided which can go around the edge to put drinks and food on or could be used to set decks on if you have a DJ. Chairs are also provided for when people need a rest from dancing.

We haven’t included linings in this sample but they can easily be added if you so wish. If you want t make it feel even more special you could also add a twinkling nightsky effect roof lining. Another consideration if you’d ideally like to keep people out of the house is to hire in portable toilets.

There are other services you may want to take into consideration that are not mentioned in this sample to make your party truly unique. Things such as DJ’s and sound hire, catering, entertainers of all varieties, hiring in props for themed parties, generators and much more. We can help advise you with all these to make sure you get what is right for you.

A Christmas Party Marquee

If you are thinking of having a Christmas party, this is one example of a solution that could be for you.

  • One 30’ x 30’ Marquee
  • Interior linings with night sky
  • Wooden floor and carpet throughout
  • Uplighters on a dimmer switch
  • Heating (cabinet heaters)
  • One 16' x 20' black and white dance floor
  • 6 x trestle tables
  • 20 x white bistro chairs
  • 5 x poseur tables
  • 20 x poseur chairs

A 30’ x 30’ marquee is the ideal size in that it is not too big in making it feel empty or not too small making it feel over crowded. It could either be a stand alone marquee, joined directly to a building or connected to a building using a walkway (walkway would cost extra).

To create that nightclub party feel the roof of the marquee will be lined with a twinkling nightsky effect roof lining with plain linings covering the walls. To add a bit of extra colour you can choose from our wide selection of pelmets and drops. Linings are also good in winter to add a bit of extra insulation from the cold.
Due to the time of year, the adverse weather conditions and seriously effect the ground making it sodden and unsuitable for guests to walk on. We recommend a wooden floor with carpet instead of matting. It may be a more expensive but if the weather is really bad it may prove essential.

To compliment the nightsky effect ceiling we would recommend that uplighters are used spread around the edge to light up the marquee. If you plan on having a full on disco, extra lights can be added depending on what you require.

Heating is very important as no one ever likes being cold. The time of year will determine the number of heaters that you require, in winter you will need more heaters. For this size of marquee we recommend gas cabinet heaters as they are small, unobtrusive, quiet and easily adjustable. A little tip when the weather is cold is to put the heaters on an hour or two before people are due to arrive to get a comfortable ambient temperature from the start.

The black and white dance floor again brings that nightclub feel and provides the ideal surface for you and your guests to party the night away.

Although you won’t be serving a three course meal you may still want to serve nibbles and of course your guests will more than likely have drinks and so will need somewhere to place their drinks and plates while dancing. Adding some poseur tables and chairs provides this while maintaining the nightclub party theme. Trestle tables around the edge will also be effective and can be used as a bar to serve drinks to your guests.

There are other services you may want to take into consideration that are not mentioned in this sample to make your party truly unique. Things such as DJ’s and sound hire, catering, entertainers of all varieties, hiring in props for themed parties, flowers, and exotic plants, toilets generators and much more. We can help an advise you with all these to make sure you get what is right for you.

A Corporate Presentation Marquee

  • One 70’ x 30’ Main Marquee
  • One 20’ x 20’ Entrance Canopy
  • Interior linings throughout with black out at one end of the main marquee
  • Wooden floor and carpet throughout
  • One 20’ x 16’ x 9” platform carpeted platform
  • Uplighters on a dimmer switch
  • Heating (cabinet heaters)
  • 200 x white bistro chairs
  • 6 x trestle tables

The 70’ x 30’ marquee would be used for the main function of the presentation. The 20’ x 20’ entrance canopy would be attached to the opening of the main marquee. This could be used for either a registration area, displaying literature or to provide refreshments for your guests. Depending on it’s use, it can come with or without walls.

To create a smart, business like impression the walls and roofs on the interior of both marquees would be covered in linings. At one end of the main marquee (away from the entrance) we would use black out linings, to block out light allowing for PowerPoint demonstrations. The rest of the linings would be ivory trimmed with coloured pelmet and drops which could be themed to your company’s colours. You could however have the main marquee completely decked in black out linings if required.

For flooring we would install a custom built wooden floor covered in carpet. This not only looks smart and business like but would be more suitable for the footwear of your guests. It may be essential if the ground is particularly uneven or the ground has been affected by inclement weather. If you deem a wooden floor is not necessary we could provide a matted floor option.

A carpeted platform would be constructed at the black out end of the marquee. This is to help enable those sitting at the back of the main marquee to be able to clearly see the persons giving the presentation. Uplighters spread around the edge of the marquee would be used to provide lighting. Using a dimmer switch the light intensity can be controlled to suit the various proceedings of the presentation.

For this size of marquee and occasion we would recommend gas cabinet heaters as they are small, unobtrusive, quiet and easily adjustable. A little tip when the weather is cold is to put the heaters on an hour or two before people are due to arrive to get a comfortable ambient temperature from the start.

The chairs in the main marquee would be set up in rows in theatre style. This maximises the amount of space in the marquee for seating. Different types of chairs can be provided if required

There are other options not included in this example that you may require that we’d be more than happy to help you with. These could include toilet facilities, generators, audio and visual equipment, catering and much more

A Corporate Exhibition Marquee

  • One 90’ x 70’ Main Marquee
  • One 30’ x 30’ Entrance Canopy
  • Interior linings throughout
  • Wooden floor and carpet throughout
  • Chandeliers on a dimmer switch
  • Heating (cabinet heaters)
  • 100 x free standing screens
  • 100 x white bistro chairs
  • 40 x trestle tables
  • 6 x 3’round tables
  • Toilet trailer
  • Generator and cabling

The 90’ x 70’ marquee would be used for the main exhibition hall allowing plenty of room for exhibitors to set up their stands and for the public to walk around. The 30’ x 30’ entrance canopy would be attached to the opening of the main marquee. This could be used for either a registration area or an area for refreshments to be served to visitors.

To create a smart, business like impression the walls and roofs on the interior of both marquees would be covered in ivory linings, trimmed with coloured pelmet and drops which could be themed to your company’s colours.

For flooring we would install a custom built wooden floor covered in carpet. This not only looks smart, creating an office feel but provides a solid base for the exhibitions. It may be essential if the ground is particularly uneven or the ground has been affected by inclement weather. If you deem a wooden floor is not necessary we could provide a matted floor option.

Chandeliers would be used to illuminate both marquees. Using a dimmer switch the light intensity can be controlled to suit your needs.

For this size of marquee and occasion we would recommend gas cabinet heaters as they are small, unobtrusive, quiet and easily adjustable. A little tip when the weather is cold is to put the heaters on an hour or two before people are due to arrive to get a comfortable ambient temperature from the start.

Free standing screens would be used to divide the marquee into smaller sections creating a small cubicle for each individual exhibitor. Screens are ideal dividers as display material can easily be attached to them. The majority of the cubicles would be around the edge and with four in the middle. This would still allow plenty of room for visitors to walk round.

Each cubicle would be furnished with a trestle table and white bistro chairs for the exhibitors. In the entrance canopy, 3’ round tables and chairs will be placed for guests to sit down and enjoy refreshments or to just take the weight off their feet.

A generator and all cabling would be supplied to provide for all the necessary power requirements of the exhibitors for displays.

As people are likely to be at the exhibition all day, toilet facilities would be needed. Depending on your requirements the trailer would be of a suitable capacity to deal with numbers expected. 

There are other options not included in this example that you may require that we’d be more than happy to help you with. These could include sound and visual equipment, catering and much more.
