When you’ve been supplying luxury marquee hire for almost 40 years you see a lot of things… We’ve become experts at building marquees in unusual and awkward spaces and we pride ourselves on our ability to find solutions to almost any marquee based challenge.
Considering marquee hire…
…but not sure whether your garden space is suitable? We may able to be able to help.
There are lots of ‘obstacles’ to marquee hire that may not be a factor at all. In this blog we’ll discuss a few of these difficult spaces and explains how we’ve worked with them, around them or turned them in to highlights for our clients.
Can be marquee features. Garden fixtures such as flower beds, statues, ponds, pergolas and small trees can all be built into the marquee. It’s actually a fantastic way to personalise your event. A pond with a fountain creates a wonderful feature for a marquee wedding, so rather than viewing your garden ornaments as limiting factors, see them as features.
Marquees over swimming pools
If you don’t want to incorporate your pond or swimming pool within the marquee then we can simply build over them. Raised boarded flooring provides a framework upon which we can build your marquee and is ideal for creating flat spaces where there may not otherwise be room for a marquee.
Have you ever considered…
Having a marquee built on your tennis court? Believe it or not a tennis court is a perfect space for a marquee. If you don’t have space elsewhere on your property then a marquee on a tennis court can hold up to 250 guests for dining and dancing with space for a caterers tent too.
Yes, they are possible even if the slope is fairly pronounced. Raised boarded flooring can be used to even out slopes and in extreme cases extra scaffolding can be brought in to support the raised flooring.
Sounds ridiculous but we’ve done it! So, why would you want a marquee inside? A good example would be the indoor marquee in a warehouse that recently erected to host guests at the launch of a catering and events companies new premises. The fully heated marquee transformed a very functional, high roofed and industrial space into an attractive party area where canapés, bowl food and cocktails were served.
House extension marquees
We build a lot of house extension marquees, particularly over the winter months when additional entertaining space is needed. House extensions are a speciality of ours and they can be seamlessly attached to the house to keep rain out and heat in. House extension marquees are ideal when space is limited and are often used for dancing – think night club area – or to create extra dining space.
Marquees in tiered gardens
If your garden steps down then you may think that a marquee is an impossibility. Don’t be such a defeatist! It depends upon the individual case but we’ve built plenty of marquees in tiered garden spaces. Our marquee legs are 2.4m tall as standard but they can be extended up to 3m.
The example shown in this image stepped down from a raised patio in front of the house and dropping down onto the lawn below. A series of marquees were used in conjunction to create a bespoke solution that was perfect for the clients needs within a challenging and unusually shaped space.
We love to build marquees in unusual spaces! Have you got a challenging garden space? Can we help?
