Clear Roof Marquees
When it comes to creating a unique space for a marquee wedding or party marquee then our clear roof marquees are the perfect choice. Clear roofs marquees create an impressive light, airy, stylish space. They also put you in the heart of your scenery enabling you to maximise a beautiful beach or countryside view, a stunning building or surrounding elegant trees. All these features become very much part of your day.
Fully clear roof marquees look amazing both inside and out and can definitely create a ‘wow’ factor. However we can combine both clear and white roofs. This can be a good way of defining different spaces within a marquee. For instance, you can have a lined marquee over your dining area and clear roof over the reception /bar areas or dancefloors – perfect for dancing the night away under the stars!
There are plenty of arrangements to choose from. We can also supply clear roof rounded ends to our marquees which can be positioned as an additional space on the side of a marquee (we call this a reception bubble!). Alternatively, you can create a more contemporary twist on a lined marquee by adding a clear gable end. It is a great way of allowing more light into your marquee and again taking in your surroundings.
Clear roof marquees are definitely a feature worth considering for your marquee. During a site visit we will look at your space, discuss how we could position your marquee to take in any views of features and importantly, chat through how you would like to use the space for your wedding or party. We’ll then work with you to come up with a layout the works for your site and your ideas!

Why are Clear Roof Marquees so Good
One feature that often gets overlooked is that clear roofs and windows enable you to be connected with your surroundings, whether that is a view, building or gardens.
We love these marquees for this reason. We often get told by clients that they want to feel like they are outside with the security of a covering in case the weather isn’t perfect. Well, that is exactly what a clear roof marquee and clear windows gives you.
Afterall, you don’t want to miss out on that lovely view just because you can’t see through the walls of your marquee. Enjoy the views all day and night!
Frequently Asked Questions
What size marquee do I need?
When it comes to marquee hire getting the right size of marquee is key. If the marquee is too large it can really impact on the atmosphere, likewise you don’t want your wedding marquee to be too small and the space not accommodate all your guests. Obviously in the UK we have to mindful of this as we aren’t always blessed with the perfect weather!
Sizing a marquee can be more of a challenge when you have a set number of guests for an afternoon reception with a large number of guests joining in the evening. But don’t worry we are use to this and have plenty of tricks we can use to ensure that you have the right size marquee for both day and evening guest numbers.
Generally a 3m x 3m space with seat 8-10 guests so from that you can calculate the seating area required – we then allow space for dancefloors, bars, staging, buffet tables and sofas as required.
Can you open the windows?
Yes, our clear windows are really easy to open up. Each window has a zip at each side which when undone allows the window to be rolled up. So it is really manageable to open and close windows on the day to allow air flow around the marquee.
Are clear roof marquees made of glass?
We often get asked if we supply glass marquees and that’s probably because in some images you just can’t tell if it is glass or not! However, all our clear roof marquees are in fact a clear PVC.We have to take extra care with our clear roofs and windows. Therefore, after each marquee hire roofs and windows are completely cleaned – you can’t have any streaks interfering with a view!
Does it get hot in a clear roof marquee ?
Yes, a clear roof marquee can get hot but this can also be managed. Firstly, on a warm day the window walls can be rolled up to maximise air flow around the marquee. If the site is surrounded by tall trees or buildings this can also create some shade during the day. Otherwise you might want to consider the combination option where we supply a lined marquee over the dining area and then clear roofs for reception/bar/dance areas. It is all very workable so get in touch and we can chat through the options.
