Customise your wedding marquee for a unique theme
Every couple has their own mental picture of the way their wedding day should look, and we want to help make it happen.
That's why we provide a range of options that allow you to create the outdoor space you've always dreamed of having on your special day: everything from simple marquees to those with elaborate lighting fixtures, or tents with fold-out walls.
We know how important it is for your wedding day to be perfect in every way, so we'll work with you every step of the way to ensure each detail is exactly how you want it. With our customisable options, you're sure to find a theme that reflects your unique style.
Pick the wedding destination that’s right for you
A wedding marquee gives you the freedom to select a location that’s right for you and your guests, and still create a theme that satisfies your initial vision.
We will construct your marquee in such a way as to get the most out of your chosen wedding destination. By installing a range of options including panoramic PVC window walls, clear roofs and clear gables, we can ensure the location becomes a feature of your destination in a way that only a marquee can.
Whether you’re after a lakeside view, a view of the Hertfordshire Chilterns or the Cambridgeshire fens, the location for your marquee is up to you.
Then it’s over to us to supply you with a high-quality marquee for your wedding, customised to your specification and delivered with impeccable service.
A marquee can be a cost-effective solution
A wedding marquee can be cheaper than a stately home, or going abroad. But will generally be more expensive than holding a wedding at a purpose-built facility or community hall. However, they do bring incredible flexibility when it comes to setup, party timings and decision-making over which suppliers you use (some venues restrict which suppliers may work there).
Many venues will allow clients to build a marquee on their land for a fee. Our clients have even approached local farmers to enquire about the use of a field, a cost-effective solution for their special day.
Talk to us about your ideas, and we’ll help you create an unforgettable experience for your guests - and with our winter rates up to 25% off our summer rates, you’ll save a little extra for your honeymoon.
In the winter, we offer equipment which is suitable for the conditions. We have our soft sided frame marquees which can be fitted with clear covers. Or we have our premium range of hard sided/glazed structures on levelled cassette floor.
As a minimum the marquee should be floored, fitted with doors and come with a heating system.
Other things to consider in the winter would be access solutions to the site location. Trackway is often overlooked. But here at Fairytale Marquees, we can offer a turnkey solution suitable for your site.
Wedding marquee costs
The cost of your wedding marquee will vary depending on the style, options, number of guests and access restrictions of the site. As a rough guide, as of 2022 a wedding marquee typically costs from £4,000 to £8,000 plus VAT.
Can you get married in a marquee?
Legally you must get married in licenced premises in an immovable structure, but you can hold your reception in a marquee, or use it to perform a standalone ceremony/renewing of vows.
