The Marquees

Planning to celebrate your wedding in a local field or even your back garden? Do you have any idea of the thoroughly complicated logistics of erecting a marquee in a rural area, or the space required to accommodate and cater for the number of guests you have in mind? South West Marquees do, and you will quickly come to the realisation that their advice alone is absolutely invaluable.

Traditional Marquees

Traditional-style marquees are one of this company's most popular structure types. Instantly recognisable from their supportive poles and conical-shaped roofs, they tend to look more visually pleasing than some modern marquees.

All South West Marquees' traditional structures come fitted with either canvas or PVC, both waterproof and highly durable material.

Frame Marquees

South West Marquees are able to provide frame marquees of all shapes, sizes and prices, from a smaller 6m x 9m marquee able to seat 50 and priced at £310, to the largest 15m x 36m marquee, able to seat 450 and costing £1780. Take a look at the 2014 price list for Frame Marquees here to find out more.

These are much more flexible and versatile than traditional marquees, and South West Marquees have regularly set them up in all sorts of environments, from slopes, split-level gardens and even over water-features and ponds! Framed marquees are modular structures, not requiring supportive poles like the traditional examples, and therefore have more free circulation space within.

Other marquee types available include entrance tents and pagodas or chinese hats.

Furniture and Decorations

Beyond the mechanical difficulties of setting up (and taking down) a marquee, South West Marquees' technical services extend to embellishing the interior of your tent to resemble your dream wedding reception space.


From white bistro examples to wooden folding seats, padded, gold-gilded, wooden banqueting and chiavari chairs, South West Marquees can supply them all!


From 3 to 6ft circular, rectangular trestle-tables, half-moon and custom-made oval tables, South West Marquees can readily complete the picture.

They also stock the likes of groovy luminous and lit tables.


This multifaceted company can also provide cotton and fabric linings to embellish and swag the interior of your marquee. Watch as light subtly diffuses through rippled linings and patterned sashes. Many recent couples have even requested LED starlit linings - great for a little added ambience, especially if installed over the dancefloor.

Lighting And Stage

And just to finish off their full provision of interior design, South West Marquees can also provide lighting rigs in a multitude of forms including spotlights, chandeliers, starlights and LED uplights. And to top it all off, a stage for your DJ and live band!

Other Services

South West Marquees provide a spectrum of flooring solutions to keep your guests' feet warm and dry. This includes the supply of plastic and wooden flexible-bottom-layer floors (to keep the rain and damp out), and carpeting and level platforms to combat uneven slopes and surfaces.


South West Marquees can supply dancefloors in a variety of colours and finishes, such as chequered black and white and traditional wooden parquet style.


South West Marquees can offer a broad range of cost-effective heaters of different capacities, depending on the dimensions of your hired marquee and the anticipated temperatures. These are not overly loud either - and they don't depend on electricity, which means they can be set up anywhere. The heaters can be hired independently.


Couples planning to celebrate their wedding in a remote location will usually need to hire a generator to power those lights, sound and other equipment. These also can be hired independently.

Portable Toilets

Even if you're planning to host a marquee wedding in your own back garden, you are probably going to need portable toilets - don't let guests traipse through the house!

South West Marquees can provide porta-loos and luxury toilet units. These portable facilities don't need to be hooked up to sewage or the mains water supply, and only a generator or standard mains electricity will be required to power the luxury variety. These latter examples feature individual cubicles, lighting, full-length vanity mirrors and wash-basins with hot and cold water - the ultimate in ablution-centred luxury! Again, these can be hired independently.

    Gabriel, I wanted to email on Friday but ran out of time, just to say how amazing the tent looked. The lining was inspiration on your behalf, how beautiful it looked. The chairs, etc. all fabulous. Thank you to you and all the team who made the whole experience fun and unstressful. I was whisked off on a secret honeymoon very early Sunday, thinking I had the weekend to sort and tidy, so apologies if slightly chaotic for you today taking the tent down. We had the most incredible evening, and a big part of that was down to South West Marquees.

  • Ruth and Alessandro

    Thank you and the excellent team at South West Marquees. It was a really professional, efficient and friendly experience from start to finish. Gabe’s site visit was really clear and well prepared and gave us a good sense of confidence in SWM, your administration has been quick and thorough which is just what is needed. Josh and the site team were friendly yet professional, and went the extra mile to make my parents’ garden look spectacular.

    Hi Gabe and all the South West Marquees Team,

    We wanted to thank all for a marvellous job of providing the marquee for Vicky and Tim’s wedding.

    Everything was handled efficiently and the construction team were well drilled and professional. We were blessed with glorious weather on the Saturday and we loved how the marquee looked once decorated and we had many compliments from our guests. Thanks also to Matt who was with us on the day who sorted a few things out and opened the sides of the tent when the temperature changed.

    The Sunday lunch also worked well, as it was then pouring with rain and we were pleased to be inside a nice cosy space.

    This is the second time this year that you have provided a marquee for us here at Church Farm and we have been very satisfied both times, thanks to your smooth operation.
