Installing Wedding Marquees in Exeter

Exeter is a beautiful city and whether you are in the city itself or the surrounding Devon towns and villages it’s a great location for a marquee wedding. Let us guide you through what makes a good marquee site for a wedding, party or event.

A level, flat site: Ideally this the perfect option, although we can provide a wooden structural floor to assist with making your site level if required.
Good access: Our frame marquees are large structures so if you are hosting a sizable event we will need to be able to access the site with lorries, and large vans and trailers.

Overhead power lines: Take a look and check if there are any overhead power lines as this can impact on whether we can install a marquee.

Grass or hard standing: Our marquee riggers love a grass site. It does make life easier. However, we are able to fix our marquees to hardstanding too!

Space to Install a Clear Frame Marquee

How much space you need for your marquee depends on how many guests you are hoping to host. Generally, brides and grooms opt for a dining + dancefloor arrangement. However, you don’t have to do this if you have different ideas for your event.

You may also need space for a catering tent, toilets and generators too. Take a look at our marquee size guide which will give you some guidance on sizes/number of guests to get you started.

Our clear span frame marquees don’t have any guy ropes and so neatly fit into their own foot print. This makes them a great choice if your space is restricted as you can maximise the space available. Marquees also can be placed alongside each other easily to create your perfect layout eg. catering tents, reception or bar marquees.

Get in touch – we can always happy to give you some initial guidance on the space you require.

We can arrange site visits where we can meet with you to chat through all the options. If you don’t live locally that’s not a problem. We are happy to meet up at a time that suits you and can arrange site visits on Saturdays or weekday evenings.

Following this we can provide you with a detailed estimate and a drawing of the proposed layout. Estimates can be tweaked until you are happy that everything is just right, before booking your marquee.

Is it possible to see one of your marquees while it is erect?

If you would like to see a wedding marquee in situ we are more than happy to make arrangements. We will need to find a viewing at a suitable location/date. Once we have homed in on an appropriate venue/marquee we contact our clients and ask them if we can visit. Seeing a marquee is a great way of getting a feel for how your marquee could look. If it doesn’t work out due to timings (most of our marquees are up during the spring/summer months) then we can send you images to illustrate various marquee features. Also, we would suggest following us on social media. We constantly update both our instagram, facebook and pinterest platforms with new images from our brides and grooms.

How long will it take to install my marquee hire in Exeter?

Most marquee installations are completed in one day. If the marquee site is a little challenging or it is a large installation that day can be quite long! Generally we have between 6 and 8 riggers on site. They will work hard to get the marquee erected, all the furnishings in place, electrics installed and checked, assist with hanging decorations, if required, before providing you with a handover briefing.

If the marquee is large or a complex site then the build may take more than one day. In these situations, we will discuss how we will manage the build during a site visit and on the lead up to your event.
