The occasion was an Eastern style wedding with exotic decorative details. But this was a long term marquee hire. The marquee was in place for two months and was repurposed later - with a change of swag colour and the addition of a small stage - for a speech by the vice-president of Indonesia and for meetings of the Internation Maritime Organization.
The challenge: To accomodate quite large numbers in a space that could not be fully utilised because a flagpole was in the way. The marquee also needed to span a patio, some steps and the lawn beyond.
The solution two frame structures attached in a squat L-shape, one 9m x 24m (30' x 80') and the other 4m x 12m (14' x 40') to avoid the flagpole but use all the rest of the space. The steps were accomodated by using shorter and then longer poles in the large marquee.
