To Marquee or not to Marquee

We are lucky enough to have organised weddings and parties at some of the most beautiful venues in the country but hand on heart, our most creative and exciting celebrations have been held in marquees. From traditional king pole to giant tipis, here’s why Apollo loves working with marquees…

  • Setting: You get to choose your setting…all you need is a bit of space! Be it at home or somewhere close to your heart, you can position a marquee wherever you want it. Plus there’s the added bonus of using it in the days running up to and after your event for family gatherings.
  • Comfort: with hard flooring, an array of coloured carpeting, options for chill-out areas, effective heating and air conditioning options, a marquee can be a comfortable space for guests whatever the weather.
  • There are so many different styles (from traditional king pole to giant tipi) with far fewer limitations than a venue. View a marquee as an extension to your home – a good marquee company will work closely with you to make the most of your setting, stunning views or beautiful grounds.
  • A marquee is a blank canvas to theme and style how you want without the restrictions of the existing layout and décor of a venue. You have a free rein over lighting and furniture to create the exact look you want whether modern or traditional.
  • Flexibility: if numbers grow or shrink you can adapt a marquee accordingly. Unlike fixed venues, a marquee can be used for everything in one location including the wedding ceremony, reception and after party.
  • Your party your rules! Nobody wants to leave a great party early so get your music sorted and everyone on the dance floor and you can party on as long and late as you like.

We work with the best marquee suppliers in the business for on-trend design and exceptional service.  There really are no limits to what we can create!
