Featured Wedding: Hoveton Hall

At Morton’s Event Hire, we are all about offering you a blank canvas that you can adapt to suit the theme and vibe of your wedding, with your own personal touches. With that being said, we are always asked how best to decorate the marquees, if we can recommend any suppliers, or what you should avoid. It’s easy for us to give advice on what we think, but sometimes it’s hard to visualize what can be done to make the marquees look showstopping. For this blog, we wanted to be able to show you a great example of a wedding that took the marquee from blank to beautiful with their eye for detail. Enjoy.

Location:
In the local village of Hoveton, Hoveton Hall is located in an idellic estate with 120 acres of gardens and 450 acres arable land. At the heart, is the hall, the place in which this beautiful wedding took place. Surrounded by an oasis of colour and calm, it’s the perfect venue for an outdoor wedding.

The Set Up:
The bride and groom had a set up of 4 of our hexagonal, interconnecting, marquee pods which can all be joined together to create a bespoke, open plan venue. 4 pods can accommodate for up to 150 seated guests and the layout possibilities are endless! The happy couple decided on clear sides to create a stunning view for the wedding breakfast. Also included at this wedding was a catering tent for food and a 2+1 luxury toilet unit, which is suitable for up to 200 people!

The Décor:
To tie in with the Spring season, this wedding was an array of pastel colours and wild flower accents. Triangle bunting was hung elegantly throughout the marquee to add further pops of colour and went together nicely with the sweeped lining that we provided. The table set up was stunning with vased flowers dotted along the long rectangular tables for guests to enjoy whilst the wedding breakfast took place. The finishing touches came from fairy lights wrapped around the inside poles and firepits outside to keep the party going well into the late hours!

 

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.
