Orangery & Marquee Weddings Frequently Asked Questions

Will my wedding venue put up my marquee for me?

Every wedding venue differs when it comes to what's included in the price. Some venues will just offer a space for the marquee to go and others will provide the tent itself. In some cases, the venue will only charge you for the hire of the grounds, and then you’ll have to arrange the marquee separately with a marquee hire company. Your wedding venue may have recommended marquee suppliers for this, so be sure to check with them.

In other cases, your wedding venue in Central London may have a permanent marquee in the grounds, or one that is in use throughout the summer month, for example. This may be a simpler choice if you don’t want to arrange your wedding marquee directly.

Am I able to have my wedding in a marquee in winter?

Definitely! If you provide a little extra heating and don't mind not being able to roll up the sides, a marquee is perfect for a winter wedding! The difference is that you won’t be able to roll the sides of the tent up (which is generally an option in the warmer months), and that you’ll have to provide extra heating for your guests to keep your marquee warm. Once you cover the ceiling in fairy lights and add sparking venue decoration, your marquee will fit a winter wedding perfectly.

What if the weather is bad?

Most marquees in Central London should be able to withstand wind and rain. However, you will want a second plan for if there's storms on your wedding day. It's likely most venues will have an indoor area for you to have your wedding reception. Discuss your wet weather plan with your wedding venue to ensure you’re prepared for any poor weather conditions.

Can we have a civil ceremony in a marquee in Central London ?

Even in marquees that are permanent throughout the whole year, it's law that you can't have your civil ceremony in a marquee as it needs to be in a permanent and fixed structure to be legal. One way to get around this is to have your ceremony over the threshold of a doorway. This way, your guests can be seated in the marquee while you are technically indoors. A popular option is to have the ceremony in the main building of the venue, or even a church nearby and then just have the wedding reception in the marquee.

 

Can we have a civil ceremony in an orangery in Central London ?

If the venue has licensed the orangery for civil ceremonies, you are able to have a beautiful ceremony in there. You will have incoming natural lighting and views of stunning grounds and gardens for your wedding photographs.

I'm getting married in Central London . How can I decorate my wedding marquee or orangery?

The great thing about marquees is that they’re a blank canvas to add your own wedding theme to. Hanging decorations such as are a fantastic choice, which could include paper lanterns, bunting or other types of lights. Lighting options such as fairy lights and chandeliers can also help set the mood for your evening reception. You will want some decor for the tables. In a marquee, it's best to go for more extravegent centre pieces to fill up the large space available. You could go for a tall vase with flowers in to match your theme.

Orangery's are a great space to decorate, you can apply any theme to it. You can use the views as part of the decor and create a stunning space for your wedding.
