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.
