How to light up
your marquee

Weddings are all about romance and celebration. Naturally, you really want your marquee to look beautiful and to be an inviting space for your guests. Lighting is key to creating atmosphere and below you can see some options to ensure your marquee looks perfect.

All marquees must have some element of

Functional Lighting

This can come in the form of pendant lights, chandeliers or up lighters. All can be installed on dimmer switches so that the light can be set to suit the time of day/night. We tend to favour up lighters as they sit at the base of the linings and up light the walls of the marquee creating a subtle but practical background light.

Decorative Lighting

Chandeliers add a bit of glamour to your marquee with chandeliers, great for creating a stylish traditional wedding marquee or for adding a bit of elegance to the roof space in a clear roof marquee.

Fairy Lights can be used behind the roof linings to give a pretty romantic look – these look great day and night.

Festoon Lighting is a traditional large bulb lights can be strung in the roof space below the marquee linings.  By day or night, it adds atmosphere and works really well with the ivory linings.

Alternatively, they can be strung from the roof space along with fairy lights behind the linings to give a fantastic mix!  It looks brilliant whether you opt for linings or have a clear roof marquee – plenty of twinkle!

Don't Forget

Outdoor Lighting

Don’t forget to think about lighting outside your marquee, for both practical and decorative reasons. You can really add to the ambiance by lighting an outdoor area or help welcome evening guests by lighting a pathway.

Use festoon lights on poles to light any outdoor space adjacent to the marquee or to light a pathway to/from the marquee.
