EVENTS IN TENTS

Your 5 step guide to hiring a marquee for your special day.

Can’t find a venue that suits you? Do you want flexibility and control over your celebration? The place to be is in a marquee! Follow our quick and easy guide to ensure your day is everything you want it to be and more!

Step 1: The Location

Location, location, location… Large open spaces such as fields and courtyards work well for marquee spaces. Just no cliff edges or helipads please! Do think about the access, power and facilities on site. We can provide you with generators, luxury loos, fridge trailers and more. Marquees on concrete may require ballast tanks to weigh it down. Staking in is not always possible! Feeling baffled? Check out the next step.

Step 2: The Site Visit

Cascade Events offer a free site visit with every enquiry. We will measure the space and check the access is suitable. Now is the time to discuss your themes and preferences with our friendly team of marquee experts! We can show you what is possible and take your ideas away with us to work on. It’s ok; we don’t mind answering all of your nagging questions! We know how stressful planning an event can be. You will then receive a bespoke quotation and CAD layout of your marquee. You are now one step closer to transforming your dream space on paper into a reality!

Step 3: The Go-Ahead

Are you ready to go ahead and make a booking? Leave it to us and we will organise everything discussed and piece together the perfect marquee. Have you suddenly thought of extras needed for the day? We can hire in a range of furniture, bars and dance floors to suit your tastes. You just have to ask! Don’t fret – we will be with you every step of the way, from booking your marquee to taking it down!

Step 4: The Lead-Up

We would hate for you to be on tenterhooks (sorry!) during the lead-up to your big day. Cascade Events are always on the other end of the phone to discuss your order. You can make alterations all the way up until the week before your event. There’s always guests who decide to RSVP at the last minute or cancel! We strive to do our best for our clients and make sure you get the day you deserve.

Step 5: The Build

Today’s the day! Our dedicated team of marquee riggers arrive on site bright and early and get cracking. They are able to answer any questions you may have and reassure you of any worries. There will always be someone on-call over the time of your event if something goes wrong. Cascade will only leave once they know that you are content with your marquee. We love to receive feedback and photographs post-event, it really makes our day!

So what are you waiting for? Be the envy of your guests and create a unique space with us today.
