Frequently Asked Questions - Orangery & Marquee Weddings

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. Check with your wedding venue to see if they have any recommended marquee suppliers that you have to use before looking into your own.

In other cases, your wedding venue in Sussex - West 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?

Of course - lots of people think you can only have a marquee wedding in the summer months, but they're still perfect for winter weddings, just with added heating! There's so many gorgeous marquee wedding venues in Sussex - West for you to choose from. 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. However, with space for sparkling decoration and hanging fairy lights, a winter marquee wedding can be a magical thing!

What if the weather is bad?

Most marquees in Sussex - West should be able to withstand wind and rain. If the weather is forecast to be too bad for a marquee wedding (could be a storm), you will want to have a backup plan, which could be an indoor space to get married. 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 Sussex - West ?

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. However, what many couples choose to do is have their civil ceremony in the venue itself before heading to the marquee for the reception.

Can we have a civil ceremony in an orangery in Sussex - West ?

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.

How can I use venue decor to make the most out of my marquee wedding in Sussex - West ?

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 extravagant 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.
