A beautiful wedding venue near Rye...Read more
So you’ve had the big proposal. The euphoria is still running high and you want to get the wheels in motion. Once the wedding itself has been booked and you have a date for your marriage, then one of the next big decisions to be made is where you will have the wedding reception. Where do you live? Are you looking to have your reception in a hotel or other venue or would you like a marquee? In your garden, your parents garden or at a different venue? Super Event work throughout the south east of England and we receive many requests for marquee hire in Kent, Sussex and Surrey.
Having a marquee for your wedding means you can have exactly what you want. There are many beautiful venues out there, and we certainly work at a lot, but a marquee just makes it more personal. You can have exactly what size you want, what entrance you want, how it should be decorated and also what sort of layout you would like.
Two of the main wedding venues in Kent that we spend many a weekend at are the delightful Squerryes Court and Hoath House. Two stunning venues and great examples of a beautiful house, but with room for a marquee.
In the 30+ years we have been working with happy couples, we have seen some wonderful ways to decorate a marquee. And we love this – every one is different and every one is totally personal to each couple. From the layout of the tables, the choice of chairs, whether you have flowers on each table, balloons, candles or just foliage. The top table can be decorated in a different way and can be totally separate to the guests or mingling with them.
The wedding favours also decorate each table and these can be a great talking point. Wedding favours don’t have to be the old classic of sugared almonds – they can really be personalised, or stylish or just downright funny! Some couples even choose fun little alcohol miniatures!
The seating plan, however stressful to organise and let’s face it, putting two families together can sometimes be a headache to get just right! But once complete, they can be a great way to decorate the entranceway and our couples are finding ingenious ways of styling with them. Just make sure you leave enough room where guests can mingle and are free to check out who they are with…
Would you like red carpet leading up to your marquee? This creates a real glamour and makes a real focal point of the entranceway, especially if you include plants, flowers or other decorations leading along it.
We also can help if you would like a sofa area – and this looks particularly spectacular and decadent, but is also a practical way of offering seating for some of the guests who may like to rest a little while photos are being taken!
When the weather is warm, there is nothing more lovely than lifting the sides of a marquee to display the views outside; especially on a balmy summers evening, overlooking the Kent countryside…
