Choosing the perfect wedding marquee for your special day

Choosing the perfect wedding marquee for your special day

Couples Choice – New Century Wedding Marquee

Hiring a marquee is a popular choice for couples looking to add that magical touch to their special day – and not just during the summer months. Here at Myreton Marquee Hire, we have a wide range of wedding marquee hire options available tailored to your needs.

Our striking wedding marquees are a popular choice for adding that traditional feel to your event. On first impressions, the style of our New Century Tent looks really impressive and it’s a definite eye-catcher for your guests with its high peaks and sweeping slopes. The New Century Tent is a very popular wedding choice in place of the more box-shaped, aluminium modern marquees due to its versatility, strength as well as style.

Wedding Designers Dream Canvas

On the inside, our wedding marquees will carry the design and layout of your choice. Even the marquee’s supporting poles can be decorated to blend in seamlessly with your bespoke design. We’ll happily work with you or your wedding planner to ensure that everything looks just right for the big day.

Sean and Jennyfer are one couple who recently hired a New Century tent from Myreton Marquee Hire for their French Scottish wedding. Set up in the expansive grounds of historic Murthly Castle wedding venue in Perthshire, the simplicity and style of the marquee complemented its surroundings perfectly, with the addition of aged wooden floorboards and pure white textiles inside to complete the couple’s stylish theme.

A perfectly designed and proportioned space

The couple was lucky enough to have a dry sunny day for their Scottish wedding, and the guests were able to relax in comfort both inside the tent and outside in the castle grounds. They chose an 80 ft x 40 ft New Century Tent which comfortably seats 150 – 160 people at round tables or 180 – 200 people at trestle tables with room for a dancefloor, a band, DJ and a bar area.

A perfect backdrop to a perfect day. Their guests look relaxed while enjoying their meal and listening to the speeches and looked to be having a great time dancing well into the night. 

We’d like to give special thanks to both Sean and Jennyfer as well as Chantal & Scott from The Gibsons Wedding Photography Glasgow for giving us permission to showcase some of their breath-taking pictures from the day. We don’t always get to see people enjoying themselves in our tents, so it is always a pleasure when we get some great wedding photos like these. We do love a good wedding!

Our team of expert advisors are happy to discuss your requirements with you to ensure that you choose the right marquee for your big day.

Stunning New Century Wedding Marquee Hire in Scotland

Stunning New Century Wedding Marquee Hire in Scotland

Our friend Ditte Solgaard Dunn, the multi-award winning wedding photographer over at First Light Photography in Edinburgh shared some images that she took in and around one of our New Century wedding marquee hires in East Lothian, Scotland recently.

We were so impressed with her work and how beautifully she captured both the wedding and the tent, we just had to share them with you.

We generally erect the marquee on a Wednesday or Thursday and take it down on a Monday, so we don’t often get to see how creative you guys are with your decor in your marquee hire, so this is a real treat for us. Feel free to send us some of your images.

If you are currently in the market for some top quality wedding photographs, get in touch with Ditte, you will be glad you did!

summer agricultural show marquee hire in ScotlandAs spring arrives and sunshine finally starts to break through the grey skies, communities and sports associations across Scotland are starting to prepare for a busy season of outdoor events. Whether your organisation is hosting an agricultural show or a bustling community gala day or it is your town’s Highland games, it’s never been easier to accommodate all of your activities and visitors with a wide range of flexible and adaptable temporary structures. At Myreton Marquees, we have decades of experience in providing an efficient and reliable marquee hire service throughout Scotland that is perfectly tailored to suit your event’s specific needs.

Helping to showcase the best of the agricultural community

marquee hire for charity event in ScotlandIn recent years, Myreton Marquees has been thrilled to supply an extensive array of marquees for numerous agricultural shows across Scotland. Most recently, we’ve provided tenting solutions in a range of sizes for last year’s busy Haddington and Biggar Shows. With our broad range of customisable options, it was quick and easy to configure a central tent adjacent to the equestrian events so that the spectators could sit down and grab a bite to eat. The event organisers also opted for a marquee design with several different openings to enable access from all directions and ease the flow of traffic in the grounds.

At Myreton Marquees, our experienced team is always available to advise on the kinds of features that would best suit your event and its specific needs when it comes to marquee hire. Scotland has numerous agricultural shows and Highland games throughout the summer and we have provided tenting solutions for ones ranging from Edinburgh and Stirling to Fife and Lanarkshire. We’ve found that a marquee is not just ideal for seating at these events, but also for storing equipment and feed so that it can be easily accessed.

Providing the perfect backdrop for summer sports

You might have spotted a marquee at a sports game before, but they are also ideal for outdoor events such as polo. Last year, our team designed and supplied all of the temporary structures for the St Andrews University Polo Club during their summer matches. Marquee hire for summer polo event in St Andrews, ScotlandThe club opted for a large marquee with clear arched windows, which allowed for light to flood the interior and seamlessly integrate the indoors with the outside. The main tent also featured a pop of colour with bold yellow stripes. With such a wide range of options, our marquees are perfectly suited to adding some flair or team spirit to your sporting event.

As we provide such a wide range of sizes at Myreton Marquees, we were also able to provide the St Andrews University Polo Club with a series of smaller tents along the side of the pitch, as well as a marquee with two open sides for the spectators to enjoy maximum easy access when purchasing merchandise and food. These intuitive designs are ideal for ensuring that your event flows as smoothly as possible.

Facilitating a fun day out for all of the family

At Myreton Marquees, we don’t just provide tenting services for sporting and agricultural events, but also supply marquees for a wide array of gala days, village fetes, and street parties. At the Haddington Show, we provided a range of solutions, including a horse trials at an agricultural show with marquee in the backgrounddesignated children’s tent for activities such as face painting and animal handling. The marquee offered room for multiple activities whilst also ensuring that parents could keep an eye on their children in a designated space. The event also featured a marquee for food and drink, which was expansive enough for multiple vendors and a cappuccino bar, as well as a produce and craft tent that featured floral competitions and displays from local artisans.

If your organisation requires a marquee, Scotland based Myreton marquee hire can ensure that your visitors are perfectly accommodated throughout the upcoming season. Contact us for more information about our range of products and to find out how our team can help you make the most of your event.

Wonderful Winter Wedding in a New Century Marquee

Adelaide and Ruaraidh's Breathtaking End-of-Year Wedding

Beautiful New Century Wedding Marquee

With so many wedding marquee hire options available, it’s easier than ever to hold a stunning outdoor wedding at any time of year. In November 2018, Myreton Marquee Hire was delighted to be a part of Adelaide and Ruaraidh’s stunning nuptials in a private garden in Perthshire.

The romantic and lively wedding embraced the season’s warm tones and cosy charm in both its design and its spirit. The couple opted for a 120 x 140 ft new century tent, which was ideal for toasting, dancing, and celebrating. The polished American redwood flooring provided the perfect space for a glitzy central bar, as well as room for a live guitarist and saxophone player to kick off the merriment and bring guests to the dance floor.

Bringing the outside world into the interior

The 6-metre x 3-metre entrance canopy was elegantly adorned inside with golden foliage to welcome guests into the comfortable space. Inside, the support columns also had the same rustic vegetation twisting up to the ceiling, which was highlighted by the warm interior lighting. As an experienced wedding florist with a love of nature and locally sourced flowers, Adelaide completed all of the wedding décor herself. The natural wooden tables featured delicate flowers in classic clear vases, alongside pale green tapered candles and bursts of verdant floral spray in the centre. The subtly draped lights above served to highlight the soft colour palette below.

 

 

A perfectly designed and proportioned space

The tent’s clear side panels allowed for an abundance of natural light to flood into the marquee, as well as providing the perfect protection in case of a sudden burst of Scottish rain! In addition to outdoor seating, the couple also chose to add a 9 square metre chill-out zone to their layout. Guests were able to step into a charming and comfortable haven with floral sofas, luxurious rugs, and traditional lamps. The marquee was specifically designed to optimise space, ensuring that the food was kept in its own 9-metre x 6-metre catering tent. In fact, Ruaraidh was an expert in this area of the wedding planning as a chef offering dining services himself for a variety of events. Like Adelaide, his catering company focuses on local and homegrown ingredients and a love of the natural world.

As Adelaide and Ruaraidh’s spectacular celebration illustrates, a wedding marquee can help to bring to life any couple’s vision of the big day.
