WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER?

If the weather forecast predicts a gloriously sunny day, you could have any number of sides up to make the most of the sun, and the view, whilst providing you with shade. If the forecast is not so favourable, we will bring down the sides of the tent and we can provide you with heaters to keep you and your guests nice and warm. We also have clear sides walls with zipped doorway access so you can stay cosy whilst enjoying the view.

 

WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF A STRETCH TENT OVER A MARQUEE?

The versatile nature and beauty of these structures always creates buzz and excitement, leaving a lasting impression on your guests. Marquees require a flat symmetrical space unlike stretch tents which are adaptive and perfect for complicated terrain. They can be wrapped around/over trees or rocks, cover swimming pools, serve as an extension to your property and even be erected over an area that has a slope.

 

WHEN DO I NEED TO PAY FOR MY BOOKING?

When you choose to go ahead, 50% deposit is due and the balance is due 2 weeks before set up.

 

DO I NEED TO ADVISE YOU WHERE ALL THE UNDERGROUND AND OVERGROUND SERVICES ARE SITUATED? 

Yes. Before delivery/installation, the client must provide TENT PEG EVENTS with written confirmation that there are no underground services on the site where the tent is to be erected, or with an accurate plan showing the location of any underground services. If the client does not own the site, then it is their responsibility to obtain this written confirmation from the site owner. If there is any doubt as to where services are, TENT PEG EVENTS will undertake a CAT scan in order to minimise the risk of Injury from underground services. As CAT scans are not guaranteed to locate all services, TENT PEG EVENTS shall not be liable for any damage caused to any undetected Underground Services.

CAN I LEGALLY GET MARRIED OUTDOORS?

Wedding laws explained by www.boho-weddings.com:

"The main problem is the Law. Unless you live in Scotland where outdoor weddings are legal, it isn’t actually legal to get married outdoors in the UK unless you do so under a fixed roof like a pagoda. It doesn’t need to have walls, but must have a fixed roof, which is why you see so many band stands being used for weddings. A marquee is not a legal structure either as it doesn’t have a fixed roof. If you don’t have a Pagoda near you or visualise your day as being a bit more rustic or completely out in the open then the other option is to hold a blessing instead of a legal civil ceremony. Many couples are choosing to do the ‘paper work’ side of the marriage the day before, or earlier in the morning in a registry office and keep it very low key, and then have the wedding they really want in the form of a wedding blessing, which gives them much more flexibility in their choice of location. By choosing this option it basically means you can get married whenever, and wherever you wish.
