Frame tents are also known as ‘clearspan’ marquees. The term clearspan simply refers to the uninterrupted space within the marquee due to the fact that (unlike with traditional pole tents) there are no internal supporting poles within their structure. The term often leads to confusion relating to clear, see-through marquee roofs and walls – See the clear marquees section, below.
Frame tents are highly adaptable, perfect for creating a bespoke and highly unique marquee wedding venue. They have a modern, contemporary look and feel, can be used all year around and are available in a large variety of sizes and configurations.
Why choose a frame tent? They are very versatile. And with no internal support poles, they offer a completely uninterrupted space within. This means that there will be no obstructions to your guests line of sight during speeches, and no hindrance to bar, dance floor and table placements. Because they don’t require guys ropes, frame tents require less space than pole tents. And unlike traditional pole tents, they can also be used all year around. Click here to read more.
Traditional pole tents are often referred to as ‘Trads’ or ‘Pole tents’. They are the archetypal country fayre marquee. They are full of character and provide the perfect setting for traditional, rustic, boho, shabby-chic weddings. Traditional pole tents are a less formal choice than their frame tent cousins. They offer a relaxed, country vibe.
We recommend that traditional pole marquees are only used between May and October. Because they are secured to the ground via guy ropes and held upright by tall central poles, they are not ideal for use in high winds. Combine this with wet, wintry ground conditions and you could have a recipe for disaster. Click the link above to read more about traditional pole marquees.
Why choose a traditional pole marquee? There isn’t a huge variation in cost between frame tents and traditional pole marquees. The choice between the two often comes down to personal taste. Traditional pole marquees are ideal if you are looking to create a very traditional, rustic style of wedding venue. The centralised support poles certainly offer plenty of character and lend themselves perfectly to floral decoration. They work well with coconut matting or no flooring at all – and can even be used with the side walls and roof space unlined, offering a small cost saving versus frame tent marquees.
We manufacture all of our pole tent marquees in house! They are of extremely high quality and made from breathable canvas material – meaning that they are less susceptible to humidity. Click here to find out more
We specialise in creating amazing house extension marquees. House extensions are created using a frame tent structure. They attach to buildings such as house or barns and use guttering to keep the rain out, creating a seamless flow from house to additional marquee space.
The house extension marquee could be the perfect choice if you are hosting your wedding reception at home but don’t have quite enough space for all of your guests inside the house. House extensions are often used to create additional dining, dancing and entertaining space.
House extension marquees are essentially frame tent marquees, adapted and built to provide a seamless extension from house to marquee. This means that they share all of the characteristics of the frame tent. As with frame tents, they can feature clear walls and roof sections, can be built onto solid, carpeted and even raised flooring. As with all of our marquees, house extension marquees can be supplied with full heating, lighting and electrical systems in place. To find out more, click here
A frame tent can be turned into a partially, or even completely clear marquee. We use a combination of glass doors and PVC panels, combined with PVC gable ends (the triangular bit at the end of the marquee roof), to create this increasingly popular look.
Clear marquees make for stunning venues and definitely offer the wow factor! We generally recommend partially clear marquees. Not only do they offer a varied look and feel, they also allow you to highlight specific areas external to the marquee with your clear paneled sections. Decorate the roof space with marquee sails or a stunning floral display and you will blow your guests away. Importantly, partially clear marquees won’t leave your guests feeling as though they are trapped in a greenhouse – a highly important consideration, especially at the height of summer!
Both frame tents and house extension marquees can feature clear side and roof paneling as well as glass doors. Click on this link to find out more about house extension marquees
Pagoda, or Chinese hat marquees are a decorative marquee solution. They can be used in combination, or as stand alone structures. They are often used to create attractive entrances, reception spaces, chill out zones, bar areas or breakout spaces.
Chinese hat pagoda marquees combine perfectly with frame tent marquees. their elegant, peaked roof creating an attractive feature, the additional internal space that they provide, ideal for use as entrances, reception spaces, cloakrooms and chill out zones.
