SUMMARY

All of the examples in this section are of our own work, which we hope will give you some inspiration for your event. Looking at past events can help to establish what you like, and don’t like, to develop a clear picture of your requirements. At this stage some people choose to employ a wedding or party planner to bring all of their ideas together into a coherent brief.

Whilst every event is completely bespoke, this section aims to outline how we interpret a brief, the equipment we suggest and a guide to the costs. We try to be clear about what we provided and what was supplied by the client, party planner or other contractors.

TO DISCUSS YOUR EVENT

 

Arrange a site meeting to discuss how a marquee would work at your venue.

 

THE BRIEF

 

Wedding reception for around 200 people with marquees being used for reception drinks, wedding breakfast, dancing and evening party.

In addition to space for the reception and dining, separate areas were required for the wedding photos, photo booth, cloakroom area for ladies and gents loos and kitchen area for the caterers.

THE PLANS

There was a large, flat lawn available, so we used a selection of adjoining structures, to the main marquee, to create all the additional spaces required by the client.

The loos were built in to the cloakroom area, with a connecting corridor to the dining area, so that everything was contained under cover.

 

THE BUILD

Although the lawn area was generous, there was restricted access along the side of the property.

We brought in a forklift for the duration of the build so that vehicles could be unloaded at the front and equipment transported to the installation team on the lawn at the rear of the house.

There was a irrigation system under the lawn which was identified by the client in advance so that we did not cause any damage when anchoring the structures with ground stakes.

 

THE TEAM

Marquees & Pavilions supplied the structures, flooring, interior lining, lighting and electrical distribution.

Ginny Loisel Events were the overall event mangers and also arranged flowers, furniture, dance floor, DJ and band.

The caterers were Cavendish Events.
