Marquee Wedding Venues Hire Guide

There's a considerable amount of legwork and orchestration that goes into planning an alfresco celebration. While gorgeous scenery and natural landscapes mean you can embrace a less-is-more approach when it comes to decorations, you may need to hire generators, lights, flooring, portable toilets and kitchen equipment.

Some expert tips for organising your marquee wedding:

  • Preparing your guest list is an important step toward establishing a budget
  • Think about the style of reception you want as well as your marquee venue hire options (traditional, frame, giant tipis, etc.)
  • Make a contingency plan for bad weather
  • Check if your catering team provides hospitality staff
  • Consider whether to provide a dress code (like black tie, cocktail attire or fancy dress)

Things to consider when hiring a space for your event:

  • Ease of accessibility for the elderly or disabled
  • Time of the event (try to schedule your ceremony after the hottest part of the day so the sun won’t be so strong for your guests)
  • Lighting (this is key for events that carry on into the evening)
  • Catering options and licences (like whether the venue has an alcohol licence or can cater to special dietary requirements)
