Marquees are a beautiful option for weddings, which help add to a relaxed yet elegant feel to the day. By their very temporary nature a marquee can add to the special sense of occasion.
Our contribution can range from simply providing a marquee to a comprehensive service covering catering, entertainment, refreshments and staff.
As with all our services, you will have one dedicated person as your point of contact, a detailed site inspection and an experienced, well-managed team setting up your marquees. To see a fully working marquee, come and visit our Show Marquee.
Things to consider when arranging your marquee wedding:
There are many ways to introduce colour to your marquee. Whether it be through the colour of the decorative lining or the carpet, colour can be a great way to make the marquee your own and match it to any themes that you may have in mind. Of course if you would like your marquee to be neutral and allow your florist to work their magic then our beautiful ivory colour theme will be perfect for you.
Remember to speak to your marquee specialist about the colour choices available when having your site visit.
There are two main types of flooring we offer. A lot of your decision with flooring will depend on the surface in which you are considering to have your marquee on as well as the style you have in mind.
The two main options on offer are either coconut matting which is a hessian style matting which is laid upon a waterproof base then nailed down using galvanised securing pins. To have the coconut matting the ground upon which the marquee is erected must be relatively flat and free of severe divots or mounds. It is a simple classic which has been a favourite for years, for a picture of coconut matting please visit the accessories page.
The second type of flooring is our interlocking hard flooring in which the entire surface of your marquee will be covered in a raised wooden floor. It gives your marquee a solid surface and can be laid on any type of ground including concrete. Carpet is laid on top giving it the perfect finish. Your marquee adviser will be happy to give advice on which style of flooring is suitable for your wedding.
If you are having your marquee wedding at home having the correct toilet facilities are always worth early consideration. We work with many suppliers of luxury toilet trailers and can liaise with them on your behalf to make sure you have the right size and convenient delivery and collection times. A toilet trailer can range between £500 and £900 depending on the amount of guests you are expecting.
Where to have your wedding marquee
Whether you are having your wedding at your family home or at a venue we will have the right size marquee for you. Our marquees are extremely versatile and can be erected on awkward sites and so they include most garden features such as small trees and ponds. Marquees are a fantastic option if you are planning your wedding at home; they give you the individuality and familiarity that no other venue can provide.
Surrey and its surrounding areas offer some of the finest, most beautiful settings for a marquee wedding in the UK. If you are considering having your marquee wedding at a venue in and around Surrey just let us know where you are thinking and we can liaise directly with their event managers to ensure a smooth running process. Monaco Marquees work with a vast number of wedding venues in and around Surrey and will be happy to advise you on any questions you may have.
Catering for your event
Having your wedding in a marquee gives you endless possibilities in terms of feeding your hungry guests. In most cases the size and shape of your marquee can depend on what style of catering you choose. Whether you are considering an elegant three course dinner, buffet, barbecue or hog roast we can ensure that you will have the appropriate size marquee. It is common that you will require a catering marquee if there is no onsite kitchen and again this is something that can be discussed on your site visit.
Powering your event
Getting the power right for your event is absolutely crucial, our experts can advise whether you will be able to use power from on site sources or if you may need a generator. This element of your event can be looked at and discussed on your site visit. If the case is that a generator is required then Monaco have very strong relationships with suppliers in and around Surrey who will be able to provide very competitive quotes. We will also be on hand to advise on the size of generator you will require.
