Creating your Space

Now that you’re happy in the knowledge that your marquee is booked and safely in our hands, what’s the next step? Decorating.

By this point you’ve probably trawled through endless wedding magazines, scrolled to the bottom of Pinterest and searched #weddingmarquee so many times your brain’s now on wedding override and you’re struggling to tell your bunting from your pom-poms.

Take a step back. Remember what your dream wedding looked like before the wedding whirlwind arrived and remember what you want for your big day. We’ve broken your design list down into four easy categories so you can create your perfect venue:


Deciding on your theme early on is crucial. Once you’ve got that in place, everything else should (hopefully) fall in line. Do you want to go for country, boho, glitter or maybe vintage? The choice is completely yours.

Now you’ve chosen your theme, next pick the colour palette that’s going to tie everything together. If you’re a little nervous, we suggest picking a neutral main colour and offsetting it with one or two complimentary statement colours.


Designing the layout of your marquee can be one of the best jobs leading up the big day. It’ll help you envision how your venue is going to look and because it’s bespoke, you get to tailor it exactly to your taste.

Think about what you want to happen on your big day. Do you want the dance floor to be the centre of attention or is it going to be more about tables and chatting? If children are invited, will you need a separate pod where they can be entertained? And perhaps you’d like an area for photos? The benefit of a marquee is that you get to decide based on your exacting requirments.


The floral game has really stepped it up in recent years. Gone are the days of standard bouquets. Nowadays, anything goes. From baby’s breath to lilies and even globes of foliage. The floral world truly is your oyster.

They’re not just for the ceremony either, flowers and foliage are a beautiful way to bring your marquee to life. Spreading ivy across the entrance of your marquee and using wildflowers to decorate your tables are tasteful ways to bring the outside in!


This is the fun part. Accessories in your marquee really let your personality shine: from fairy lights to strobes, bunting to lanterns and logs to hay bales – we’ve seen it all. Tie your accessories into your original theme and colour palette for a seamless, tailored effect and you’ll have your guests oohing and ahhing at every turn.

Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Use teacups as candleholders, wood stumps as cake plates and glitter instead of confetti to make your day a total reflection of you and your partner.


So there you go. It’s time to get your notebook out, make your lists and create your wedding. Good luck!


A massive thank you for providing an amazing and unique tent for our wedding. We were both so glad we went with the stretch tent for something a bit different and we couldn’t have been more pleased! All of our guests said how fabulous it looked! A big thank you also to everyone at Morton’s for helping and answering all of our questions in the run up to our big day. I definitely feel I know more about luxury toilets and generators! We would recommend Morton’s to anyone planning a wedding and wanting a tent which is a little different.

We were delighted with the marquee supplied by Morton’s Events.

Our guests were bowled over by the interlinking hexagonal “pods” (as we called them) and all commented on how special it made the wedding breakfast seem. We managed to accomodate 170 guests in plentiful space while making it seem intimate and cosy.

Mortons’ staff were incredibly helpful,flexible and obliging and decorated the marquee beautifully,with fairy lights and a fabulous starcloth ceiling over the dance “pod”.

Together with table decorations designed by my daughter,the effect created was magical,or as one guest put it “breathtaking.”

We would unhesitatingly advise any family contemplating a wedding in a marquee to opt for Morton’s.

Morton’s were professional, accurate, knowledgable and nothing seemed a problem.


The pods lend themselves in any situation and function and looked far better than we had both dreamed of.
Thank you Simon for making our day go without a hitch and for all your hard work and for what seemed like ours was the only function that year!

We had Mortons marques for our daughters wedding. With 200 guests we had 5 pods, a 5×5 square for the bar area and another as the entrance.

The seating for the guests wrapped round the dance floor giving a wonderful view to all and creating a great atmosphere. Mortons were so helpful always at the end of the phone and the whole day and all preparations went to plan. We would definitely use them again.
