Marquee Receptions

Learn how to plan a marquee wedding reception

Organising a marquee can seem daunting at first as there is so much involved. I know of many planners who have turned bookings down because they are too nervous about the responsibility of marquee receptions. In 2017 I delivered a marquee reception webinar, this has now been fully updated and transferred into an online training product.

Get confident and knowledgeable

“My aim is to give you the confidence to organise a marquee for clients, having an understanding of common dilemmas you may encounter. I have been organising marquee events since I became a planner in 2002. I know the difficulties you can face and want to empower you to deal with them with confidence. I truly adore marquees and want to pass some of that passion and love onto you.” UKAWP Director Bernadette Chapman, owner of Dream Occasions and Marquee judge for TWIA.

Reality of a home wedding

At first glance having a ‘home wedding’ in the parents’ garden can seem like a good idea, less stressful and cheaper. The reality however is very different. It can be very stressful for all parties involved especially as so much could go wrong and YOU are the expert, you are there to solve any problems that occur. There is no venue manager to fall back on.

Please note: Throughout the course when using the term marquee we in fact mean all styles of temporary structures (tipis, yurts, tents etc.)
