Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire

Kirsty and Will

Kirsty & Will's gorgeous Thameside summer wedding breakfast

Real weddings show so much and if you see this case study as an example of our typical wedding marquee packages you will be on the right track! 

We were so thrilled to be involved with the wedding of Kirsty and Will, founders of Manchester's The Macrame Jungle.

Notice how they tie in the natural canvas material with a backdrop of beautiful plants. (They love macrame and plants!)

This couple is mad for macrame and they have turned their wedding planning hobby into a side hustle of various lovely items that are available on Etsy.

During the lead up the event Kirsty and Will asked for the specific dimensions between the two king poles and Will, who is an engineer, came up with some fairly incredible systems for rigging the suspension bridge of plants between the poles in the most aesthetically pleasing way we’ve ever seen.

On walking into the marquee, even after seeing so many weddings, we were blown away by their creative installation!

This wedding features our two pole wedding marquee, a canvas "Petal Marquee" that we call Scoopy Do.

It is 9x15m and Kirsty and Will had 80 guests for the meal and a small dance floor at the far end. The marquee also linked to a catering tent behind and we provided some shepherds crooks and runs of festoons to light up the path between the rowing club and the marquee.

Their venue, in Kirsty's home town, a rowing club on the banks of the River Thames, has a beautifully kept lawn and it was peak summer so they chose to have no carpet which tied in really nicely with the greenery theme. Partying was inside the tent later on, though they could probably have gone on one of the local party boats that cruise the Thames!

See how they have used the incredibly popular French style cross-back chairs and farmhouse tables combo. (HINT; if you go for simple grass flooring, aim for the dry season and book furniture that dosen't have pointy legs that will sink in as soon as you sit on them. We actually also have very nice wooden benches for this purpose too).

Outside the front of the tent, ready for the evening, we installed our giant 3m tall shepherd crooks and warm white festoon lighting system. It's important not to overlook the darkness and create the right exterior ambience too as many guests will be outside later in the party.

Over all; a splendid river bank affair!
