Five fantastic reasons to choose a marquee wedding

More and more people are looking for a way to make their big day stand out. Looking for a wedding that won’t blend in with the rest? Then a marquee wedding is definitely for you, and here’s why.


The place to be.

Redefine the word ‘venue’! With a marquee, the sky literally is your limit. Whether you are after breathtaking views, hidden locations or you plan to bring the party to your home, there’s a marquee to fit your dream.  Why not think about going back to where it all started? Opt for a fond location that has brought you both joy and share it with your nearest and dearest on your big day.



Marquees have changed and have so much to offer…

If you are opting for a classic wedding then look no further than the traditional marquee. With its high ceiling and classic poles, it’s a popular choice for a wedding.

Make a statement with a stretch marquee. Rustic and stylish, this is a talking point. Not only does it look beautiful, it is also the perfect space for socialising. Think long banquet tables, fire pit, and a seamless blend of indoors and outdoors as guests free flow from undercover to open air.

Need some space set aside? Whether you are after a cloakroom, children’s area, or a chill-out zone our modular pods are for you. Separate pods join together to give you a venue you can build around your wedding. A little bit of planning and you have the setting of your dreams.


Blank canvas

Whichever marquee you go for you have a blank canvas which will work with any theme. Whether you want to go with tradition or you want to break the mould, you have complete control over every detail. Not only can you create a bespoke event, you will also have fewer restrictions on numbers and budget. Take advantage of the fantastic relationships between Morton’s Event Hire and local businesses. Tailor-make your big day or chose to DIY your decorations, flowers and favours.



Don’t let the wedding breakfast give your guests a sense of déjà vu. Stand out from the crowd by building your day your way and leave your guests with a sweet taste in their mouth. There is a wealth of local suppliers, whether you want to support local farms and rare breed providers or opt for a relaxed vibe with street food vans.


Please don’t stop the music!

With the right venue or at your own home there’s no reason why you can’t party on until you drop! With only your own guests to consider the party can last as long as you can. Our tip – make sure you invite the neighbours to keep them happy!



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.
