From a sophisticated monochrome party to an adventurous forest filled with tropical plants and lush greenery, your party marquee can be whatever your bride or groom-to-be will love. Work with your professional planner and think about how best to decorate, think hanging decorations, centerpieces, lanterns, flowers, candles, ornaments, bunting – whatever you envisage – let us know. Create an atmosphere that will reflect the best night to remember.

Furniture & Equipment

Whether you’re going for circle tables dotted about the room for an elegant get-together or typical Bavarian benches ready for a few steins and a sing-song, you can have your marquee interior exactly to your tastes. Chairs, tables, linings, table linens, lighting, toilets and generator hire can be provided to ensure you’re all set for the big surprise. Whatever type of gathering you have in mind, your event will be tailored to your exact requirements so not only will you ‘wow’ everyone, but it will be comfortable and functional too.


Get the party started and have your early arrivals mingling over a couple of fun games. They don’t have to be complicated – you can get a giant noughts and crosses set, giant twister or even something as simple as ring toss. Games are the perfect way to get everyone ready for a fun night, it helps to break the ice and get everyone talking. If that isn’t enough, have a DJ and get everyone up on the dance floor!   

Lights, Camera, Action!

A nice backdrop of fairy lights, a photo booth and photo props is a sure way to get the guests off their phones and involved with the night itself, with a booth and props at the ready, no one will say no to a few snapshots.
