Elegant Wedding Marquee Hire, Sussex

Your wedding day needs to be perfect in every possible way. With experience of having planned and erected many wedding marquees, we understand this fully. We manage our part of your event professionally and efficiently so that you can enjoy your big day without worrying about your marquee.

Why use a Wedding Marquee?

Marquees provide a unique and atmospheric setting for your wedding. Set up, temporarily, for your special occasion, they are a space apart from everyday life, and reflect the specialness and uniqueness of an event.

Our wedding marquees are very flexible. Marquees, can be constructed in many shapes and sizes along various themes: long, square, free span; romantic, classical, themed.... This allows the bride and groom to stamp their own personality and character on their wedding day in any way they choose, whereas in a fixed venue the possible decorative mix may be limited.

Furthermore, hiring one of Ad Astra’s wedding marquees affords you the chance to welcome your wedding guests to a reception at home at a time of your choosing (And to party until the small hours should you desire!). A wedding marquee is the perfect solution if you would like to host the actual wedding ceremony in your own garden.

Wedding Marquee Themes

There is no “correct” style or theme for decorating your wedding marquee - white with lilies is a classic and popular choice, but you may prefer pinks and purples! Whatever style and theme you choose for the wedding reception, the atmosphere can be transformed by using lighting effects for an evening celebration. One recent wedding marquee even included an ice rink and an ice bar.

Wedding Marquee Planning

We take your wedding very seriously. We take care to ensure that:

  • your chosen marquee can accommodate the proposed number of wedding guests
  • The marquee size will work with the layout
  • The position and layout of your marquee will complement catering requirements, and work with any heating and electrical equipment needed

Please contact us to discuss your wedding marquee
