Traditional Pole Wedding Marquee hire in Watford

Traditional Pole Marquee

Traditional pole marquees, as the name implies, are characterised by the central poles supporting the roofs. These marquees can be left in their basic form for shows, festivals and garden parties. Or they can be fully lined, floored and carpeted to provide sumptuous hospitality spaces. The standard traditional pole marquee is perfect for the quintessentially British white wedding.

Petal Pole Wedding Marquee hire in Watford

Petal Pole

The stunning petal pole marquees are of a similar construction to our standard pole marquees but are designed to cater for the rustic and vintage marquee wedding market. The fabric is a modern composite that mimics the look of the traditional canvas style marquees and the very popular sail cloth marquee. There is a dropped ridge between the roof uprights, and a flowing, scalloped valance all around the outside of the marquee. The king poles supporting the roof are made from timber, as are the poles supporting the eaves. The petal pole marquee is perfectly suited to our range of rustic furniture.

How many guests can a marquee hold?

Our range of wedding marquees are suitable to seat from 20 guests up to 600 in one singular space. Or 10-2000 standing. For events beyond 600 seated or 2000 standing, multiple structures can be linked together.

Unlike a tipi or perhaps even a stretch tent, our marquee have a minimal number of legs or poles dropping into your useable floor space. Making them very spacious.

The size of the structure you require will be dictated not only by guest numbers but other factors as well. The need for reception space, entertainment space and quiet areas within the marquee may have an impact. One of our experienced sales team will be happy to guide you in selecting a wedding marquee size and style which is right for you. 



We are great believers in planning in advance. With every job in Hertfordshire, big or small, we work with our clients to draw up detailed floor plans for individual structures and the overall site. This minimises the need for on-the-day involvement from our clients and ensures smooth and timely installations, without nasty surprises!

Wedding marquees are a fantastic blank canvas to put your stamp on. We have seen all sorts of themes from Harry Potter to a Mad Hatter’s tea party. Contact us now and our experienced sales staff are ready to guide you through the options to help create your perfect space.



We offer a comprehensive selection of lighting, furniture, climate control and decoration to complement and enhance your Watford wedding or party marquee hire.
