Marquees

When you are considering the venue for a wedding it is important to get it right first time. For this reason we like to see all our customers who are planning a wedding. We can then advise them on suitability of their site, the different types of marquee available and show them photographs of weddings we have arranged over the years. We will help you make the right choice of colour scheme and advise you on different layouts of tables and chairs. It is normal for Melody Marquees to erect a wedding marquee three or four days before the event and remove the day after at no extra cost to yourself. This allows the customers, caterers and florists to set out the marquee and prepare it for the special day.

Clear Span

All clear span marquees are of British manufacture using alloy box section construction standing on eight foot legs with white P.V.C. tops and walls containing window and door sections. Whatever special event you have in mind be it a wedding, a party, sales promotion, or a fund-raising gala, marquees add an extra dimension to the occasion, and can turn that special event into an extra special one.

Traditional

Our fantastic new marquee has the elegance of a traditional pole marquee with the superior performance of a fully engineered tensile membrane.  Dress it up with a romantic lining for a wedding or use without a lining at a trade show or festival event, creating the perfect traditional atmosphere, taking you back to times gone by.
If you are looking for something very romantic and classic, very traditional, and very British, then this is the marquee for your perfect wedding.

With the latest design and technology, our traditional marquees have additional benefits to the old fashioned pole marquee. These modern marquees are fully engineered and manufactured for optimum performance in challenging weather conditions.  They incorporate many features that dramatically improve their resistance to wind and their weatherproof qualities are well proven to the same standard as the modern clear span frame.

Our “flat” lining provides the perfect blank canvas to create your own unique theme within this classic marquee. “Shabby Chic”, “Country Garden”, “Vintage” or even a “modern twist”, the choice is yours. With interior poles it gives the marquee more height and character, and offers the opportunity of dressing in your chosen theme.

We can create the traditional floor of coir matting, or the more practical modern floor with a classic coloured carpet (or any colour of your choice) to suit your budget and ground conditions.
As with our standard clear span marquees we offer all the additional components for your dream wedding or event, including light, toilets, generators, catering tents, dance floors, furniture and much more.

Most functions use 5' round tables, seating 10 guests at each table. Including the chairs and space to get between tables. Ten guests take up a 10'×10' space or 100 Sq. Ft. This is a useful guide as most marquees are built in multiples of 10× .I.e. you can get 4 tables or 40 guests in a 20'×20' area. The above assumes that you have enough room to get to your table but for most functions it is desirable to have space to dance. Or to greet people before they move to their seats. For this reason we recommend at least 14 Sq. Ft. per person. Some people prefer to seat 8 guests at each 5' round table however this will reduce the seating capacity of a marquee considerably.

Pagoda & Small Structures

As well as providing marquees, we can provide service marquees, bar counters and dance floors. We can also contract in generators, toilet facilities and heaters on behalf of our customers. One of the first considerations when hiring a marquee, must be how much space will the guests require. Too little space and people will be cramped. Too much space and the marquee will feel half full. Different layouts of marquees will inevitably accommodate more or less people.
