Another successful year at Southern Marquees!

2018 has certainly been a year that we can look back on as being one for the record books!  We had spring weddings with temperatures warmer that an average summer, lawns scorched from the sun resembling golden wheat fields and umbrellas used as parasols.

We have been so lucky again this year to work in some beautiful venues including Stansted House, an Edwardian country house set within the South Downs National Park. As approved marquee suppliers, we have been providing marquees for weddings at Stansted House for over 20 years! This unique wedding (left) had a fairground theme with guests making the most of the fabulous weather in this stunning setting.



Hollybank House, a beautiful Georgian family home in a mature 10-acre garden in Emsworth was the perfect setting for this large wedding in late September with the hot weather showing no signs of waning.  We loved the white feathers on the tables!

Wedding guests will have access to explore the gardens including the Walled Kitchen Garden, the Victorian Glasshouses, the Sunken Gardens and the stunning 300ft Edwardian Pergola. A truly charming marquee wedding venue!

West Hill Park’s lush green ‘Rose Lawn’ was scorched by the sun this summer but remains a favourite and with some amazing weddings there again this year!

Once again 2018 was a year with a lot of repeat bookings for family weddings and anniversaries or just an excuse for another party in one of our marquees!

You would not believe how diverse the events we provide marquees for and even though most of our marquees throughout the summer months are for weddings, we have provided marquees for lots of hugely successful parties, memorials and corporate events too!

The beauty of a marquee is that it gives you the freedom to put your own stamp on your event and this year once more shows why marquees make for unique wedding and party venues!  Have a look at our 2018 gallery for more photos of our 2018 events.
