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.

What have Myreton Marquee Hire been up to?

2020 was a disaster for the events industry. As numbers of people allowed to attend events dropped in March and April, we set about rescheduling existing bookings later in the year and 2021.

Finding availability at venues across the country and working with toilet hire companies, generator hire, caterers and many unhappy couples, we managed to find new dates for everyone.

Some of our clients whom we originally changed dates for to later in 2020 or early 2021 have had to replan their events a 2nd or 3rd time as the ban on events continues to be extended.

We have found that our flexible approach has worked well and our understanding customers are satisfied that Myreton continues to do everything possible to accommodate them in these difficult times.

Track and Trace – NHS Testing Centres

The lads worked hard to set-up the NHS Track and Trace Paisley Testing Center in record time


Early in the pandemic, we started work on Scotland’s first drive-through Covid-19 testing centre at Glasgow Airport’s long-stay car park, with Edinburgh the following week and Aberdeen two weeks later.

Since then the guys have been busy erecting tents at testing centres across the length and breadth of the country and even some in the North of England.

Today we were in Paisley in Renfrewshire, working on the latest site to go live at Bridge Street Car Park in the Town Centre. In freezing temperatures the team were up against the clock and the guys managed to finish work just in time as the NHS Testing Centre opened its doors a couple of hours later at 2 pm.

All of the employees here at Myreton Marquee Hire are very proud to be able to assist the Scottish Government in fighting this pandemic and hopefully, our small contribution to this effort can see an end to this disruption to our lives sometime soon.

Stay safe!

Fantastic Farmyard Wedding Marquee Hire Idea

Fantastic Farmyard Wedding Marquee Hire Idea

Fabulous Farmyard Fun Wedding in a Myreton Marquee Hire

John and Emma reached out to us during the lockdown to share some photos of their wedding marquee hire at their farm near Garvald in East Lothian, Scotland. Joining two 9 Meter Clearspan Marquees side by side created a massive floorspace for all their guests to enjoy the ceremony and festivities in comfort.

Unusual Marquee Location Makes Perfect Wedding Venue

The happy couple chose to have their wedding marquee hire erected inside one of the large sheds at the farm steading which had been spruced up for the big day. A smaller marquee just outside the wedding marquee provided an excellent entranceway for the guests who had a short walk from a nearby field which was the car park for the day.

As you can see from the photos the vast space of the two marquees allowed John and Emma to get creative and use items from their farm to create a stunning look for the wedding, we just love the bar made from pallets!

Our beautiful Giant Redwood marquee flooring covered the barn surface and added to the rustic look and feel of the wedding and also provided a well-used dancefloor.

Many congratulations to Emma and John on your marriage and creativeness from everyone at Myreton Marquee Hire.

Your Wedding Marquee Hire Photos Help Others Decide

It is great to be able to show you how customers make use of their wedding marquee hire, it inspires so many of you to get creative yourself. If you would like to share your images and help other couples make their event a design success please get in touch with Linda at Myreton, and if you have some ideas and want to plan a marquee wedding in an unusual location Linda can help with all the details and logistics and prepare you a detailed proposal.
