A marquee for your wedding will offer you freedom and flexibility to create the ultimate in style for your event. Marquees are a blank canvas which allows you to stamp your own personality on. There is something very romantic about a wedding under canvas and with the addition of a styled interior and lighting you can create a stunning venue.
The best way to add atmosphere to your wedding marquee is through lighting, there are so many options to create the mood, even giving you the opportunity to transform your day time stylish wedding breakfast into an amazing feast of lights for your evening entertainment.
Let’s look at some of the wedding marquee lighting options available to you helping you to create the ambience and set the scene for your perfect day.
You can’t beat natural light and if your marquee is surrounded with fantastic views opt for a marquee with windows, imagine how spectacular the views will be when the sun is setting, your guests will certainly remember that moment.
If your marquee is located in the country side with no street lighting, a clear panelled roof would be amazing, the ultimate romance can be bought to your wedding, dancing in the moonlight and under the stars.
If you are looking for a soft romantic look, we would suggest twinkling fairy lights, ceiling canopies and lights strung from the sides of the marquee to the centre.
Your wedding marquee may have central poles and pillars, make the most of them, they will look stunning wrapped with soft fabrics such as chiffon over laid with fairy lights.
Chandeliers will add a touch of elegance and class to your event as well as providing good strong lighting.
Floor stand uplighters will provide columns of light against the marquee wall.
Pinspots will provide lighting for the centre of your tables without dazzling your guests, they are roof mounted, and are often used to highlight a feature within the marquee such as the dance floor, wedding cake table or top table.
Paper lanterns bring an element of fun and festival to your day, high above the tables, they will create a talking point with your guests.
If you need to light access to the marquee or car park you need to think about outdoor lighting in a functional way, however many events like to use outdoor lighting to enhance the venue at night. What could be more perfect than sat outside your marquee on a warm summer’s night with the trees softly lit up?
