Boutique Marquees offers bespoke quotations tailored to their individual clients requirements and event plans. They work with you to create your very own, one off, unique venue space from their range of stunning white canvas Petal Pole and Sailcloth marquees, all of which can be styled with their carefully curated selection of furniture, bars and décor.
Both our Petal Pole and Sailcloth marquees are handmade in the UK from a white cotton canvas fabric and feature intricate design detailing and wooden features made from sustainable natural resources.
The unique features of the Petal Pole marquee include: White, fully weatherproofed canvas material with a beautiful translucent quality; gently scooped roofline; distinctive, scalloped roof canopy; square ended/rectangular shaped; traditional wooden tent pegs; natural style guy ropes; fully removable, white canvas walls and panoramic; clear window walls.
The Sailcloth marquee is more modern in look and feel, and is based on the iconic Sperry Tent from the US, giving it a coastal, New England vibe and featuring: White, fully weatherproofed canvas material, with a beautiful translucent quality; soaring, curved rooflines; white cotton flags that gently sway atop tall, wooden central poles; fine, star shaped detailing in the ceiling space at the top of each central pole; intricate crescent shaped detailing atop each wall pole; fully removable, panoramic, clear window walls.
Both marquees also feature beautiful hand turned, wooden finials atop each wall pole that can be supplied in different shapes and have been made in the UK by R L Trim marquees, a small family run business based in Cerne Abbas, Dorset for over 50 years.
We offer a variety of sizes of marquee, suitable for both small and large weddings, and anything in between!
We work closely with you to advise on the correct size, taking into account your guest numbers, event design/plans, what you'll be using the marquee(s) for, what furniture and décor items you plan to have in the marquee and your preferred floor plan.
For an indicative guide of what size marquee might suit your wedding, check out the handy floor plans in our marquee brochure.
Absolutely! All our marquees are designed with the great British weather in mind! They are fully weatherproofed to protect you from the elements - rain, wind and sun! On warmer days, the side walls are all fully removable leaving you with a lovely roof canopy to provide much needed shade from the sun and to benefit from any warm summer breezes.
The natural, breathable canvas used in the manufacture of our marquees is of a superior quality and has been fully tested to ensure it can withstand European weather conditions. For an event as important as your wedding day, we would not settle for anything less.
If you're lucky enough to know someone with a large garden, they always make for a wonderful personalised wedding reception venue. We also work with a number of wedding venues that allow you to put up a marquee on their land and would be happy to make recommendations.
Wherever you decide to have your marquee, we would always recommend a grassy, level site with good drainage, an access point for our vehicles and a minimum width of 15 metres (all our marquees are 12m wide and require additional space for the guy ropes).
We offer a free of charge site visit to measure and assess where you would like to locate your marquee and as part of that we would check everything is suitable, including the positioning of any underground services, access etc, as well as advising on the orientation of the marquee based on your event plans.
One of the best things about having a marquee wedding is the extent to which you can totally personalise your very own, one off venue space.
If you're looking for someone to transform your marquee and take on all the hard work, we have our own, in house stylist, Katie, from the Vintage House That Could. Katie is amazingly talented and will take your ideas and inspiration, and wow you with her work!
