Cornwall Marquee Weddings

Thinking of a marquee wedding in Cornwall? Why wouldn’t you, the county has an amazing amount to offer, from its dramatic coastline, golden beaches, rolling country views to picturesque fishing villages. A Cornwall marquee wedding enables you to put yourself right in the heart of what makes the county so special – the outdoors.

Finding the right location which works for you is key. There are plenty of amazing marquee wedding venues from stately homes, hotels, country/coastal wedding venues to holiday complexes with self-catering accommodation – you will be spoilt for choice. Many of these venues will be able to offer you, and a number of your guests, accommodation which does mean that your family and friends could join you for a few days!

However, if you would like to go it alone then there are also field venues to hire which give you complete freedom to create your day. Whatever style of theme you decide upon you will be able to fashion your wedding from start to finish. Great field venues should have plenty of space for your marquee, ideally be flat, well-draining sites with good access and of course have a ‘wow’ factor view. Frame marquees are particularly good for field locations, as they withstand stronger winds, which can be an important factor if your site is in an exposed coastal position or on a hill top and Cornwall has plenty of both!

Festival style weddings are increasingly popular where the atmosphere is relaxed and celebrations spread over a the weekend. Marquees can be used for dining, dancing, catering and toilets/shower units hired in if your site requires additional facilities. Guests usually camp on site, however, if  a little pampering is required then there are now plenty of companies who will supply beautifully fitted bell tents with double beds and cosy furnishings. Camping no longer has to be hard work, it can be a luxurious home from home! And what could be better than a festival marquee wedding with a stunning sea view.

So, if Cornwall marquee hire is at the top of your wedding wish list, then take a moment to think about what you would like from your day, as a marquee venue gives you so much flexibility to make it really special.
