When you want your special event to be truly unique, you’ll need to look for suppliers with a point of difference.

At Katalane, we don’t run with the pack. As an event hire company, we make it our job to go above and beyond to give you exactly the wedding or party you’re looking for.

Offering a holistic approach to event hire, we assist in all areas to create extraordinary event spaces. Our unique marquees are sourced from all over the world, and our bespoke furniture and accessories are designed and constructed in our Sydney-based studio. 

Our background

Katalane founder Dave Lavelle’s background is in architectural home building, as well as furniture design and manufacturing. In fact, most of our install/manufacturing crew have similar backgrounds. So basically, we know our stuff!  Our team knows how to get the job done quickly and to the highest level; just one of the reasons you know you’re in good hands.

Our marquees

Planning Dave’s own wedding in Ireland sparked a global hunt for a visually stunning, yet functional outdoor structure. Enter the Katas, our Scandinavian tipi-style marquee that started it all, back in 2012. Since then, we’ve added our American Hamptons-style marquee, as well as our Nomadic marquee for a plethora of style and size combinations to give you the best marquee options in the world…literally.

But which one, you may ask?
·      Our stunning Kata and Kung Tipis are natural, elegant and can be linked seamlessly together to give you spectacular, flexible space. Dress them up or don’t dress them at all! In fact, you can ‘undress’ them to create the Naked Tipi look.

·      A classic, luminescent sailcloth marquee with a distinctive modern twist? Our Hamptons Marquee may be The One for you. With a network of crafted timber poles that add shape and character, this light-filled marquee creates a refined space indeed.

·      Nomadic Marquee – A versatile freeform tent that creates an exclusive and stylish space, and can also be added on to our Tipis as a catering or chill-out space. We’re the only company offering the bamboo poles and sandy tops that make this marquee unique in Australia.

Our custom-made furniture and accessories

No mass-produced, seen-it-all-before furniture here! As you can see, our accessories are not only beautiful, but are also one-of-a-kind. No two events will ever be the same – this is your chance to create your day from start to finish in your own style – from tables, chairs, beanbags, rugs, flooring and lighting (and much more!)…. Have fun with the process and let your imagination run free, we’re more than happy to guide you along the way!

Need stage props, specific furniture, branding and/or signage? We’ve got you covered there, too. There’s nothing we can’t create!

Our customer service

Not to toot our own horn TOO much…. but it’s true, we offer a level of customer relations not generally found in the event hire industry. From your first enquiry right through to event set up, our motto is pretty much “there’s nothing we won’t do.” (OK, almost nothing…)  We endeavour to make the whole process as quick and seamless as possible, so you won’t have to worry about anything and can simply enjoy your day.

The Katalane team always brings their A-game, creating a more efficient, personalised and sustainable approach to custom-made events.

Feel free to contact us anytime to see why we stand out from the crowd, and let us help bring your special event to life.
