Featured Wedding: Holkham

Although we offer 3 different styles of marquee, our stretch tent is truly our showstopper. Its architectural design makes it something to admire when it’s in use and makes it one of the most popular choices for weddings. With bohemian, relaxed styled weddings taking the lead nowadays, it’s the stretch tents true time to shine. One of our couples, Hattie and Justin, thought the same and hired the stretch for their wedding in September. This month, they are our featured wedding and the pictures look great!

The Venue:
In picturesque Wells-next-the-sea, Holkham Hall stands proudly in its estate which is made up of farming land, woodland and over 300 houses, which are continuously maintained to look after the land and wildlife for the foreseeable future.  It’s one of the most ideal North Norfolk locations to get married and as such, is very popular with couples from in and around the area, surrounded by a romantic deer park with a lake, temple and woodland. Although, multiple areas in the estate are available to use for a wedding, many of our couples choose the beautiful walled garden for their reception and that’s exactly what Hattie and Justin did.

The Reception:
“The private walled garden was built in the mid-eighteenth century and is being restored and one section has been laid to lawn surrounded by borders filled with colourful summer bedding. The venue is sheltered by the high walls surrounding the six acre garden and there is ample space for a large marquee and entertaining. Because the walled garden is so private, this is an ideal place for marquee wedding receptions and parties.” Hattie and Justin maximised the potential of this space with our stretch marquee. Inside, long tables were used to accommodate all their guests and some of the sides were left open to give an airy feel. Outside, they used hay bales and traditional games, along with wooden tables to create a rustic vibe that worked amazingly with the style of the stretch tent.

The Décor:
The inside of the marquee reflected the rustic, almost bohemian vibes that were translated on the outside. Long tables and chivalry chairs were used for the wedding breakfast with floral accents and candles scattered across the table creating a relaxed atmosphere. Wooden decorations were dotted around the marquee, along with a mirror that laid out the table plan, something we absolutely loved! With the party heading deep into the night, fairy lights were also used around the poles of the marquee, along the entrance and also outside so the couples guests could enjoy the reception even when it was dark.

Samantha Race was at the helm of the decorating and The Hanging Lantern Company also provided amazing ceiling decorations to truly transform the marquee. We think the pictures speak for themselves!

Testimonials

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.
