Naturally, this is one of our favourite subjects! And we’re calling it; some of the most beautiful and unique weddings have been held in marquees.
An outdoor marquee wedding is the perfect way to make a statement and create an unforgettable moment in time.
So, why choose a marquee wedding? Here are just a few good reasons…

Whether you’re inviting the cast from Spartacus or you’re going for something a little more intimate, hiring a marquee is the way to go. No two marquee set-ups are the same; the space can be as small or large as you want it to be. To create the perfect atmosphere – not cramped, nor too roomy – they can be built to stand alone or joined together to fit the exact size of your event.


A marquee provides a blank canvas for you to create a space that is yours and yours alone. Instead of potentially being limited by a more traditional wedding venue, a marquee or tipi gives you the freedom to choose every little detail. From the chairs to the lighting, the signage to the dance floor (yes, really!) and everywhere in between; you get to put your personal stamp on the whole shebang.  


A marquee also creates flexible indoor/outdoor space for your guests, whether it’s a ‘chill out zone’ complete with bean bags and a fire pit, a quiet space for family and friends to chat, or a cocktail bar area… The only limit is your imagination! And if you’re thinking of having a themed wedding – Elegant? Bohemian? Country Chic? – a marquee offers you the chance to create the event of your dreams, whatever your style.


There are so many stunning outdoor wedding venues that are just perfect for marquees, all boasting incredible views that you and your guests get to enjoy all day long. Of course, you can also hold your wedding somewhere that already has significant meaning for you, whether it’s your own back garden, a family or friends’ property or a favourite winery. A marquee can turn any location into a magical wonderland.


No matter what Mother Nature brings on the day, you and your guests will be protected from the elements under a marquee. The temperature will be just right, with the help of portable heating or fans, if needed. And if your wedding happens to fall on a rainy day, it’s not an issue; in fact, the rain creates a cosy, romantic atmosphere, just perfect for such a day!


Whatever your budget, a marquee wedding gives you the flexibility to work within your range. With so many different suppliers to choose from, you are free to design a wedding to be as simple or elaborate as you wish.


Feel like dancing until dawn? You can! Choosing a marquee for your special day means that you can choose your own finish time, unlike most traditional wedding venues. So you can tell the DJ that he doesn’t have to play that last song until you’re ready to leave. Likewise, if you would prefer an early start / finish, that’s okay, too. It’s all about flexibility.
