When you think of a marquee, what do you picture in your mind? For many people, marquees conjure up images of elaborate garden parties filled with dancing, socialising and children playing in the grass. A marquee lends an air of traditional elegance to any wedding or outdoor event and provides a blank canvas for you to create any theme you can imagine. It also provides much-needed shelter from both sunshine and rain, allowing you to hold your party in varying weather conditions.

Important Information About Hiring a Marquee
We know that for many of you, this is the first time you have hired a marquee. We want your experience to be as smooth as possible, so we have gathered some important information that you should know.
Marquee Size: Plan for at least 2 to 2.5 square metres per person if seated, or 1 to 1.5 square metres per person for a standing event. If you plan to provide a dance floor, a stage, or any separated areas, you need to take those numbers into account as well. We are happy to help you determine exactly what size marquee you need.
Heating and Cooling: We know that Mother Nature does not always cooperate with outdoor events. To keep your guests comfortable, we offer a variety of portable heaters and fans. We will help you determine the size and number you need based on the size of the marquee, the predicted weather and the number of people you expect.
Delivery and Set-up: Marquees are normally installed several days prior to the event, allowing you plenty of time to decorate. At a minimum, your marquee will be in place the day before your event. For other hire items such as chairs and tables, we do not provide a full set-up service, but our delivery drivers are happy to place your items near their final position. To find out how much delivery will cost, create an event online or speak with one of our friendly representatives.
Seating Options: Every wedding and special event is unique and we know you want yours to be something truly special. From ottomans and benches to contemporary bar stools and even children’s chairs, we offer a range of options at all levels of formality.
