Why we Love Marquee Weddings at Foil
Many of our clients want to step away from the busy city and instead step into a rural paradise for their wedding; marquees give you total flexibility with your wedding location and often mean you can draw the celebrations out for a whole weekend (camping, anyone?) Whilst they are by far the most complex to pull together, the end result of a marquee wedding planned by Foil is always a relaxed, beautiful countryside escape.

Kalina + Freddie /// Private Marquee Wedding
"It is hard for me to express the value that Kate and her assistant added to our marquee wedding reception. In fact, I would say having a coordinator is a must have for a DIY style wedding. The team helped with everything from helping fix my dress when I had a mishap to pulling the marquee sides down when it got cold and everything in between. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"
Our favourite Marquee Wedding Locations
The best thing about a marquee wedding? You can hold one pretty much anywhere!
We've been up and down the UK delivering marquee weddings in some seriously beautiful spots, from family gardens in the home counties to castle grounds in North Wales and everywhere in between. Marquees are easily the most logistically challenging wedding to pull off, but that's probably why we love them so much, there's a special satisfaction in seeing an empty field transformed into a luxurious wedding venue!
By having so much flexibility with a marquee wedding, we've been lucky enough to help our clients make the best use of each unique location, like Jamie + Tonje's garden marquee wedding, complete with a boho lounging area and a balloon-adorned swimming pool; or Christina and Brian's family home which created a stunning backdrop for their marquee wedding. Similarly, we've loved visiting marquee wedding venues such as Houghton Lodge in Hampshire for Becky and Bryan's celebration, with the guests starting the day sipping champagne in walled gardens before heading down to the marquee to party late into the night. The benefit of all that outdoor space: No neighbours to upset!

Why a Coordinator is a Marquee Wedding Essential
We've been delivering marquee weddings since day one, so we know exactly what hurdles may crop up and how to overcome them seamlessly. Marquee weddings will often involve numerous suppliers with different requirements and plenty of last-minute decisions to make (especially where Great British weather is concerned) which is something you certainly don't want to be worrying about on your wedding day.
