Marquee Weddings



I just love a marquee wedding. There is just something so special. I think a marquee wedding sets the tone for a magical atmosphere, they're romantic and every detail from the start is your decision, making it unique to you both. You are in control of every detail.
So many couples are now opting for a marquee wedding as they want the freedom to be able to transform their venue into exactly what they want and have their special day in a location where they want. Turning their visions into reality.


 For couples that love the outdoors then a marquee wedding is the perfect option. You can design your marquee from start to finish, just the way you want it and if you want your special day to connect with nature then a marquee is a great way of bringing the outdoors in.
Forest weddings are becoming very popular. Can you imagine your marquee wedding set in the most beautiful tranquil forest? How amazing would that be. You can see why they are getting more popular.
Wrekin Forest Events have the most stunning grounds for your forest wedding.

As you know we can not rely on the great British weather, your marquee will keep you covered in case of any unexpected weather changes. Marquee weddings are perfect no matter what time of year you plan to have your wedding.


No matter what your wedding theme is you can create that setting with a marquee wedding.
Marquees have a blank canvas and so you can design the inside to match your wedding theme, no matter what your budget may be. You may have a big budget and can really go over the top, or if your budget is quite tight then you can buy in your decor to keep within your budget and it won't break your bank. Chandeliers, hanging flower arrangements, bunting, balloons, vintage props and rustic decor etc. Oh the choices go on!


You also get to choose your own caterer. This is my other love for marquee weddings.  You could have a hog roast, pizza, grazing tables which are becoming increasingly popular, unique mobile bars, ice cream carts etc, or maybe you would like a sit down meal.
 This is your very own unique space and the choices are endless for you to create your Fairytale Wedding.


I would advise you to hire a wedding planner if you are thinking of having a marquee wedding. Although all the planning can be done yourself, it's a lot of planning to be done on your own. Having a wedding planner to  keep in touch with all your wedding suppliers to make sure your special day runs as smooth as possible will take away a lot of the stress and save you time. Fairytale Wedding Planning in the UK have some amazing and highly recommended wedding planners. Click on the link 'Wedding Planners' located on the right side column of this page to take a look.

Choose your location. Yes, no matter where you want to have your marquee wedding, you decide.


 Couples are getting married in their back gardens now, what a great idea, especially if you have the space.
There is no cut off time so your party can go on until the early hours, providing your neighbours are ok with this.
There are many venues that will also allow you to have a marquee on their grounds.  Couples choose to have their wedding ceremony inside the venue and then opt to have their reception in a marquee on the grounds of the venue. This is a great idea as you can also use the venue accommodation for yourself and your guests. You can find a list of wedding venues by clicking on the link 'Wedding Venues' located on the right side column of this page.


Do you fancy hosting your very own bell tent hotel for you and your guests that will work great with your marquee wedding?

Marquees come in different sizes and shapes and so you won't have to limit the number of guests. You can choose to have them as big or as small as you like.
If you want a small intimate wedding then a marquee wedding is a great choice. Some venues have a minium number of guests and so you may end up paying for a larger guest list than you actually need.
Maybe you would like your bar, dance floor and entertainment separate, this is all possible with a marquee. You could even have a separate party tent!

The Honeymoon



The Honeymoon is something that the bride and groom really looks forward to. It will give you both time to unwind after your wedding and is a well deserved break that you will both need together.

Italy Destination Wedding


For some couples their dream of a destination  wedding never becomes reality. The reason is that some couples just don't know where to start, they think it would be too difficult to plan and so get themselves into a panic and decide that staying closer to home is the easier option. Planning a wedding can be stressful and there's no doubt that planning a destination wedding comes with its own set of challenges. The truth is a destination wedding is not that much different to planning your UK wedding and once you are informed with all the right information you need then the planning can be very straight forward.

There could be many reasons why you have always dreamt of a destination wedding. You and your partner may have a love of travelling, it could be one of the beautiful destinations that you have travelled to in the past, one of the very first destinations that you had travelled to together as a couple, where you got engaged, or maybe you just want to escape to have a small intimate wedding with just immediate family and friends.


The thought of planning a destination wedding can be very daunting, making you feel confused and the not knowing where to even begin can make you feel overwhelmed!.
If you are planning on a destination wedding then I would highly advise you to hire a wedding planner about 12- 18 months in advance. It is important to either hire a wedding planner that knows the location or specializes in destination weddings. There will be many questions that you will want to know and by hiring a wedding planner they will know everything that you need to know. They will also know which suppliers to use and will be able to contact them for you and arrange everything. Sometimes with having the language barrier this can be a blessing. That's the beauty of hiring a wedding planner, you tell them what you want and they turn your dreams into reality. Your wedding planner will be there for you every step of the way,  listening to how you vision your wedding day and making sure that everything runs according to plan. Their job is to plan your wedding day exactly how you want, your way.

Rosa Aqua Weddings have kindly shared a beautiful, fairytale wedding in Italy that they had the pleasure of  planning.

Aurela and Andrew married on 6th September 2018 in Italy at the stunning and luxurious 19th century villa with breathtaking views of Lake Como. It really was the perfect setting for a fairytale wedding. They wanted a small and intimate wedding in Italy.

There is something so special about Italy, to me it's such a romantic destination to have your wedding.
Just look at these magnificent views, I can not think of a better back drop for your photographs.

Lake Como is in Northern Italy's Lombardy region, an area well know for its dramatic scenery, set against the foothills of the Alps. It is such a beautiful and very picturesque location.

Belluxe Photography.

Aurela and Andrew had a very intimate and romantic celebration with close friends and family. The couple travelled all way from Canada and their guests from various countries. You can see why they choose this location, it's just magical!.

Belluxe Photography.

Aurela looked incredibly stunning in her ceremony dress, just like a fairytale princess.
 Aurela had five bridesmaids. They looked amazing in their blush pink dresses. There colour theme was blush pink, white and gold.

I love this image of Aurela and Andrew standing in the grand doorway of the historic villa. At first you are wowed by the magnificent building and then you notice the backdrop with the most incredible views. It really is breath taking. So romantic!.

Look how pretty this image is. It looks like something you would see in the movies. The decor looks amazing, the lighting and the flowers. It's perfect!.

I think there is something so special about having a small intimate wedding with close family and friends. What better way than saying 'I do' in romantic Italy.
