Where to tie the knot

If you have recently become engaged then you’ll be busy trying to decide on the best venue for your celebrations. There are so many options available these days that it can be a bit of a minefield as you can now get married in a whole host of locations, not just churches or registry offices. Hiring a marquee for the reception is a flexible, roomy option and portable, so you can hire one for many locations giving you a greater choice over where to hold your celebrations. Let’s take a look at some of the different places available to exchange vows:

In a barn – for a touch of real rustic country chic then opt to celebrate your big day in a barn decorated to your exact requirements for a relaxed and unique affair. For added space, marquees can be placed next to the room.

Castles – if you want to splash the cash and fancy being treated like royalty for a day then there are many castles across the country where your dreams can come true. A marquee on the lawn will look beautiful and quintessentially English.

Stately Homes – there are hundreds of these up and down the country and similar to a castle, they will offer you a touch of class and some splendid backdrops for your wedding photographs. Be a Lord and Lady for the day.

Outdoor – there are many venues now that can offer an outdoor ceremony, maybe in a lakeside location. If you love nature and wildlife then this option will really appeal to you and you can carry on the party under the cover of a hired marquee.

Countryside – there are farms that offer ceremonies and even venues that come with outdoor activity centres attached. One such countryside setting is the only wedding venue in the UK with it’s own 250m zip wire. Again, these locations offer fantastic opportunities for the use of a wedding marquee.

Coastal – weddings can now take place on beaches so you can say your vows to the gentle lapping of the waves and enjoy your seaside reception under a marquee decorated in a nautical-theme. For Marquee Hire in Kent, visit http://www.2intents.co.uk/

Landmarks – if there is a special landmark that has a personal meaning to you and your partner, maybe a spot where the proposal happened then find out if they have a licence to conduct ceremonies or hold your celebrations nearby and have your photos taken at the landmark.

There are many benefits in choosing a marquee for your wedding party. You get to choose where you want it, within reason. A set venue does not give you this kind of flexibility. Layout and size can be altered and so you have greater choice over how you want the space to be created. Unlike a venue that already has furnishings, you get to choose the theme and the decorations as you are starting with a blank canvas to make your very own. You will also have the control over the style of food, entertainment, budget and alcohol. A wedding package in a hotel would do all this for you but if you have some very strong ideas over exactly what you want, then marquee hire really does give power to the people.
