English garden marquee
The occasion was a spring wedding reception.
The venue was a croquet lawn in the grounds of a manor house, plenty of room though the logistics were a little awkward.
The bride's thinking: “As the Wedding was in May, it was really important that the weather did not interfere with the fun of the day. So we designed the marquee in a way that ensured everything could happen inside should the weather not co-operate! This included having separate areas for eating, dancing and relaxing and also having the toilets covered and integral to the marquee so people would not have to go outside.
We wanted to create a relaxed, informal atmosphere with lots of entertainment for the guests - including music played throughout the day, candy bar with cupcakes, photo frame guest book and fancy dress accessories.”

“On the look and feel of the marquee, we wanted to ensure the marquee complemented the beautiful grounds of the venue on the croquet lawn of the country manor house...”
“...so this meant shabby-chic accessories, vintage books and antique croquet sets. The picture frames were a decorative alternative to the usual table plan and names.”
