Marquee Wedding Venues – What are the Benefits?

Need a little help deciding whether a marquee wedding in a field is for you…let us help nudge you in the right direction!

If you or your family don’t have the space to host a wedding yourself… then choosing to hire a marquee wedding venues gives you all the space and so much more!  You won’t be disappointed.

1. Wedding Marquee Venues – not just any old field.

In order for a wedding marquee venue to be regularly hired to host a wedding, the field has to have something pretty special going on.  This is usually in terms of its location but most of all the surrounding landscape.  Sea & coastal views make really popular venues, giving you a stunning back drop to your wedding day and of course photos too.

2. It is completely up to you what you do.

With a field site you can create your day from start to finish, from the layout and style of the marquee to choosing tables, chairs, bar, decorations, flowers or fun outdoor games.  The space is yours to do whatever you want with!

With most of the field sites there is the option to have some overnight camping…this might not be for everyone, but can be great if you want a festival style wedding enabling you to keep everyone together and have fun the next day. Nowadays there are plenty of glamping options too!
