Marquee styles


A marquee can add professional style and glamour to an event, or be designed with fittings and styles that create a more relaxed atmosphere. Gone are the days of run-down canvas tents with flapping sides (that leak in the rain). Modern designs include stylish contemporary Clearspan marquees, with sleek aluminium frames and sturdy sides. They are available in many different shapes and configurations and can be installed in unusual combinations, to create a unique setting for your business or family event. These marquees can be arranged in many different ways, incorporating walkways, windows and reception areas. A reputable supplier will provide them with or without linings, according to your needs, and will install them and dismount them according to your timescales. If you are looking for something a bit more unusual, here are some ideas that might tempt you into choosing a marquee for your next event or celebration. These include:


Arabian: these are Bedouin or Moroccan-inspired tents with lavishly furnished interiors filled with sumptuous fabrics in warm, earthy colours, opulent rugs, cushions, and gentle candle lighting and uplighting. They can be combined with low seating and tables, music and the scent of roses jasmine, amber and musk. These are perfect for creating a relaxed and Bohemian atmosphere for a wedding or party, full of colour and life.

Rustic: a stunning choice for weddings, parties and celebrations, an unlined rustic marquee will allow you to feel completely at ease in your surroundings, with all the personal details you’d like. For instance, you could furnish your rustic marquee with long trestle tables, fabric bunting, wooden tables and long table runners. Beautiful finishing touches include garden flowers in jars or metal buckets or even planters filled with your favourite plants.


Posh: for an up-market event, a fully-lined marquee with elegant furniture and chandeliers will set the perfect atmosphere. You can even include a fully-operational dance floor, a bar area and stylish sofas and luxurious carpet.


Tipis or sets of tipis can make a relaxed and memorable choice for weddings, festivals and parties. Luxury tipis will be fully weather-proofed and insulated and can be connected to create extra space. Just add fairy lights, a mirror ball and a dance floor and you can party the night away.


A pagoda or a Chinese hat marquee: this is a 6m x 6m marquee with a distinctive peaked roof. Pagoda marquees are ideal for creating a separate focal point away from the main marquee. These can be linked up to the main marquee, adjoined to a house or building or can be separated entirely. At Crest Marquees, we offer you endless possibilities to personalise your marquee, be it a specific theme, personalised lighting, colour schemes or design.
