It was dry and sunny during build up of the marquee, and then the night before the ‘big day’ just enough snow fell to make a stunning winter scene but not enough to stop travel to the wedding. The glass windows allowed the snowy highland scenery to be seen at its best. Inside, the marquee was cosy with plenty heaters; and the up-lighters behind the linings, fairy lights in the dining area and black-out starlight roof in the dance area provided a cosy atmosphere.
The flooring on our steel sub-frame meant that we could build up the undulating and sloping ground to make the marquee floor level inside. Another big advantage with our steel sub-frame means that as the floor boards do not sit directly onto the ground water is prevented from seeping through in wet conditions and it is much less cold underfoot.
The marquee accommodated around 225 guests and was of size 15m x 33m. A kitchen and cloakroom area with toilets were adjoined so that guests and staff did not need to go outside unless they wanted to. A long covered, floored and lined walkway was also provided so that guests had shelter as they walked from the car-park to the main marquee. A good idea on a cold, snowy February day.
