Compass School – East Lothian

Compass school required extra covered outdoor space during the pandemic to aid their social distancing for pupils effort. We supplied a 9-meter x 9-meter frame tent which as you will see from the images below, lent itself to a variety of uses, including a theatre for the school play. Adding some lighting and lining to a marquee can transform the use, look and functionality.

9m x 24m Wedding Frame Tent Marquee

As wedding tents go, this was quite a long marquee, due to social distancing, this July 2021 couple required a larger covered space for fewer guests. Two sides of the marquee have our full-size clear sides which are removable should the weather allow. It also has our redwood hardwood flooring which looks splendid in the sunlight.

Ever wondered what and where stewards and course officials eat during major sporting events?

 

New Century Wedding Marquees From Around Scotland

A selection of New Century Wedding Marquees from Fife, East Lothian, Northumberland, and Glasgow. These tents were erected for end of July weddings. There are 40 ft x 40 ft marquees. 40 ft x 80 ft marquees and 40 ft x 120 ft marquees, all with our redwood hardwood flooring, separate catering marquees which are used by caterers as a temporary kitchen, food preparation and area from which to serve food. Couples seem to be liking our full size clear walls, some opting to have these clear walls on 3 sides, this allows for much more light to enter the marquee and also opens up many new decorating ideas to creative-minded weddings planners. They were also supplied with generators to power the lighting and PA system. For generator hire for wedding marquees, we use GGS Generators exclusively, as George’s service and support are legendary in the industry. Fire extinguishers are also an important requirement when hiring a marquee. You are welcome to supply your own, or you can add them to your requirements when asking for a quotation.

 

 

 

Marquee Wedding Hire During COVID Restrictions in 2021

Marquee Wedding Hire During COVID Restrictions in 2021

Having moved almost all of our 2020 marquee hire bookings to this summer, it looked as if we were going to have to move them all again to 2022. As more people have been vaccinated and restrictions are starting to ease, we see some weddings going ahead this year; we have five this weekend alone. Having your Marquee Wedding Hire During COVID Restrictions in 2021 has proved impossible for some, but other couples have worked within the guidelines and are managing to pull it off.

Open sides, larger tents for smaller numbers, more outdoor seating and bar areas, propane heaters, back gardens as opposed to country estate locations are some of the changes that have had to be implemented to tie the knot while keeping everyone safe while enjoying their big day in the company of family and friends.

With travel restricted too, some folks have opted to postpone again until next year to allow overseas visitors to attend, indeed, some of our brides and grooms are based in South Africa, Australia, South America and cant travel themselves due to restrictions of various governments, airlines, quarantines etc.

At Myreton, we have tried to accommodate every request for new dates, change of venue, larger tents, extra tents, not only for weddings, but anniversaries, birthday parties, engagement parties, garden parties, highland games, country fair, game fares, sports events and races, you name it, we have accommodated change to the bookings of all these and many more.

As we look towards the latter part of the summer and early autumn and restrictions continue to be relaxed, we are already seeing increased enquiries for marquee hire as people are keen to have their weddings and events sooner, rather than later.  We have availability in September and October on a number of weekends, please check your venue has availability on the dates you require before enquiring with us. I know that Craig Wood at the Seton Garden has some availability around then, as does Kevin Crawford in the Borders. Toilet blocks, generator hire, table and chair hire, caterers etc, are all working as normal and have available capacity.

Linda, who manages our bookings, has worked tirelessly over the last 18 months, to ensure that our happy couples remain happy, not an easy task when you consider that we also have the NHS contract to supply, erect and maintain, NHS Test and Trace tentage throughout Scotland which she has also been coordinating, but she has managed to achieve just that!

Well done and a big thanks to everyone in the Myreton office for your professionalism and commitment.

Government guidelines surrounding weddings and events changes over time, keep track of the restrictions on the Government website.
