Hatch Marquee Hire – Summer of 2015

Now that Autumn is here to stay, we can take a small breather before the Christmas season begins. It is a time to check all the equipment and clean, clean, clean! It is also a time to look back on this year and some of the bookings we have had – it is always amazing to see how our brides and grooms put their stamp on to their day, making each marquee totally unique and very personal. So we thought we would share a few of the marquees that we have supplied this year….

First up is this lovely photo  (Alex Poppe Wedding Photography) of a marquee wedding at Porthilly Farm, such a stunning venue and the clear bell bubble is a great way to add some reception/bar space to your marquee with out it feeling too spacious.  It also makes the most of the views and brings in lots of light.

We love the flowers on the tables and the hanging display – it looks really inviting (Photography by Krishanti).  However, because we love talking a bout all things marquees, this is a great example of being able to separate areas in a marquee using a dividing curtain.  The curtain is raised after the afternoon reception, in this case to reveal the dance floor with black starcloth roof linings – ready for the evening party!

You can’t beat a marquee for putting you in the heart of the scenery and as the sun begins to set the evening light takes over and adds to the atmosphere.  To guide guests to and from the marquee we can set up outdoor festoon lighting on poles to lead the way.

Love, Love Love it!  Clear roofs were used in this wedding marquee, over the dancevfloor/bar area, it’s a great way to create different areas in your marquee.  We used fairy lights and festoon lighting to dress the roof space and the bride and groom added their touches with white umbrellas and the LOVE sign.  Sofas were also used along side the dance area so guests could take a break from the dancing without moving away from all the partying!
