Dear Lovely Wedding Planners, 

Five Times Regional Winner Wedding Industry Awards 2017/2018/2020/2021/2022

As you’re here reading this, you’re obviously looking for more exciting and alternative options for your wedding than a corporate-looking hotel function room. They had their place back in the day, but weddings have become much more of an experience these days, and people want to give their friends and family a truly amazing day to remember. One that will be talked about for years to come. 

If this is what you’re after, read on…

Rustic marquee weddings can be really stunning. Our Sailcloth Marquees provide a dazzling venue for weddings big and small. With a range of furniture and accessories to choose from, each set up can be totally bespoke so that your wedding day is like no other. Would you rather have more informal long tables and benches or round tables and chairs? We offer both. Are you planning to dance the night away? Then let’s add in our oak parquet dance floor. And don’t forget the bar, which can come with illuminated letters so people know where to go to fill up their glass!

Lighting really adds to your wow factor – inside and out. Welcome people into the marquee with a magical festoon walkway, make a statement with a bright neon sign or draped festoon lighting,

But what if it rains?

When planning an outdoor wedding or celebration the one thing we get asked over and over again is what if it rains? We have got this covered in this blog post which is jam-packed full of all the information you will need to know. Click here to read more…

Where can we use the tents?

We have a selection of beautiful venues across the Midlands that can provide the perfect setting for our sailcloth marquee. Outdoor wedding sites in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands. We are able to travel up to an hour and a half from our location in Swarkestone, Derby. This means we are only ever 90 minutes away from you and your venue if we are needed. Alternatively, if you have your own site already or if you are looking to have your celebration in your own garden space, this is possible too. We are always happy to visit new sites and discuss the options with you. Start your free quote to discover if we can cater to your location.

How many tents do we need?

The size of tent you require depends on a number of factors. This includes the number of guests you are looking to celebrate with both daytime and evening. Other considerations are how you are planning on using the space and what else you will require in your space, for example, a bar, dancefloor, band area or an open fireplace. We will take all of this into consideration when we recommend to you the size of sailcloth tent you need as part of your free quote. Click the ‘Get In Touch’ button on this page to start your free quote now.

Do we need power and toilets?

To make your outdoor event function, you will require power and toilets. If your site does not offer power or organise the hiring in of an event generator, this is something we can do for you. If you would prefer to organise your own generator, we will advise you on our power requirements.
We also work with a number of luxury toilet hire companies. We are happy to coordinate the hiring of these in for you, or we can recommend suppliers we have worked with in the past.

Can we see the sailcloths?

Yes, we have a number of open events throughout the year where you can see our sailcloth tents up in all their glory. You’ll be able to see what the tents look like when they are all lit up at night-time; perfect for imagining how your evening reception will look. You’ll be able to walk around inside and really get a feel for what kind of arrangement you want for your wedding.
