We were invited by event management company, Added Dimension, to create a show stopping wedding venue using the pole marquee that would really highlight the bridal couples’ garden.  We were asked to span a 5m wide and 25m long rill, home to many Koi Carp and to highlight the wonderful views of a lake off to the left hand side,  and the rolling hills beyond. 




By using a 15m x 24m Pole marquee we were able to create as much useable indoor space as possible to dine 140 guests whilst still leaving an area outside for reception drinks. As the king poles of the marquee need to be installed centrally to the structure our team had no choice but to come up with a way to support them - and the immense weight of the pole tent structure- over the rill, without compromising the event design.

The walls around three sides of the wedding marquee were fully windowed to allow guests a panoramic view of the landscape and garden. In order to avoid restricting the view, the dance and catering structures were neatly tucked in at one end of the marquee on a raised terrace.

How we did it

After completing a full structural survey of the area, we used bespoke cut steel RSJ beams spanning the rill that the king poles were nestled into. By using our classic ivory pleated linings inside the wedding marquee we created the perfect blank canvas for the client's wedding design.

The dance marquee was tucked on the terrace behind the main dining tent and connected using a joining structure with bespoke steps. This was then lined with black to provide a strong contrast between the two areas and create an intimate nightclub feel. Our specialised flooring system was used over the patio area to avoid the need to stake into the client’s patio.

The quintessential English wedding marquee look was completed by Added Dimension using beautiful table arrangements, floating candles in the rill and gorgeous hanging floral chandeliers between the poles.
