A 15m x 40m marquee adjoined with a 9m x 21m marquee was used for a wedding reception to accommodate 220 guests.
The 15m structure was used for dining and dancing, with 15m x 25m of the marquee being used for dining and 15m x 15m being used for dancing. The dining area was lined and lit in a Moroccan style, and coffee-coloured carpet was laid over the steel sub-structure wooden flooring. The dance area had polished wooden flooring and was lined in black-out starlight roof and black walls. Disco lighting was attached to truss bars in this area to complete the effect.
The 9m structure was used as a reception area, and was adjoined to the main 15m marquee. This was also lined and lit in a Moroccan theme. To create a 3m wide wooden decking area along 3 sides of the marquee, 12m wide flooring was laid and a 9m wide marquee was erected on top of it. This decking area overlooked the river and had to be built up to make it level with the rest of the marquee. We then put a handrail around the decking area for safety reasons.
A 9m x 12m catering area with non-slip flooring and lighting was attached, and an area to house the luxury trailer toilets, floored, and lined in pleated ivory was also adjoined to the marquee.
Access to the site was not straight forward, as the only bridge over to the site had a 5 tonne weight restriction. All our heavier vehicles had to pass over a ford.
