Party Gallery

Marquees make perfect party venues.  They provide the flexibility to hold the party at the venue of your choice including your own garden and any size can be catered for.  A marquee offers a blank canvas to let your imagination and ideas flow …

You can choose the colour scheme, layout, style of chairs and special lighting effects. We liaise with your band or disco and caterer and with our extensive list of useful contacts, you will have many highly recommended suppliers to choose from.

No matter what time of the year, a marquee is perfect for a party at home!  They can be opened up in the summer or supplied with roof only so that your guests can enjoy the balmy summer evenings and heated during winter months to keep you cosy and dry.

We have provided marquees for many successful parties over the years so have a huge amount of experience so if you are planning a party please give us a call!

2017 – What a year!

The majority of our marquee hire is for weddings but we do a fair amount of parties too and this year has been no exception. We have provided marquees for school proms and award ceremonies together with some amazing combined parties – one for a father and daughter celebrating significant birthdays and one for a christening which surprised everyone by turning into a wedding!

A party that really pulled out all the stops this year also gave us the opportunity to reunite with a very talented caterer who took us all down memory lane with her retro food to match the theme of this very colourful birthday celebration!

The weddings this year have been pretty unique.  Our new multi span marquee has really come into it’s own allowing us to cater for much larger guest numbers and together with some of the best event caterers throughout Hampshire, these weddings were not just a chance bring together family and friends, it was also an opportunity to experience some exceptional fine dining!
We cannot forget all the musicians and dj’s who have done a brilliant job this year entertaining your guests – from silent disco’s to amazing tribute bands – our ‘useful contact’ booklet is now bursting with some brilliant local talent!”

We have had some significant events ourselves this year!  First of all, Pippa – Mandy and Hugh’s daughter married Dan in Newquay, Cornwall!  Unfortunately a little too far away to provide a marquee but great to be able to experience the whole wedding planning from the ”other side’!

Jane’s daughter, Ellie, married Chris in July. This was a local event and having worked at Southern Marquees for almost 17 years, there was no question that it would be held in anything other than one of our beautiful marquees!
