When it comes to finding your perfect venue, you might be picturing a beautiful barn, a grand country house, or even towering castle. But have you thought about all the positives of a marquee wedding venue? We take a closer look at what makes marquee wedding venues stand out from the rest.
They come in all shapes and sizes
Whether you’re planning an intimate celebration or something more spectacular and grand, you’ll be able to find a marquee to suit the size of your party. In some cases, a venue will work with a particular supplier who can provide a choice of marquees at your chosen location. Sedgeford Hall in Norfolk offers different marquees situated next to the exquisite country house.

They can be styled any way you want
With a marquee wedding venue, you have the freedom to create your perfect setting to celebrate your special day in. You won’t find this level of versatility at any other type of venue! In nearly all cases, the décor is neutral and makes an ideal blank canvas to work your magic upon. You won’t have to worry about clashing colour schemes or existing themes, so let your imagination run wild! Brewerstreet Farmhouse in Surrey looks incredible with any style, but particularly with bursts of bright colours!

They are not just for summer
Contrary to popular belief, many marquees are ideal for a wedding in any season. Inside, you’ll usually find heating and air conditioning to find the right temperature for your celebrations. When the weather gets warmer, you have the added benefit of opening up the sides and doors and letting the fresh air in! Combermere Abbey in Shropshire is the perfect space for a reception no matter how hot or cold it is outside.

They are much more than a tent
Think of a marquee wedding venue and you might picture a tent in a field but in reality, they can be so much better than that! Permanent and semi-permanent options feel just like a real building and come with much more flexibility than you would imagine. Folding doors will let the outside in while sections of the venue can be divided with retractable walls and screens to make full use of the space. Braxted Park in Essex is of the highest quality and perfect for a glamorous wedding.

They come with the most beautiful backdrops
Not many other types of venue can offer the spectacular array of settings that marquees can! Celebrate deep in the woods or surrounded by breathtaking gardens, alongside historic buildings or sat in the midst of a flower-filled meadow. The choice is endless! One of our favourites has to be Slaugham Place in West Sussex; a marquee venue that lets you tie the knot in the dramatic ruins of an Elizabethan manor house. Pretty special, don’t you think?!
