Alternative Weddings

Alternative Weddings

We hire marquees to a whole host of wonderfully creative couples who hold the most imaginative weddings you could think of.

How long does something have to grow in popularity before it is no longer alternative?

Helpful and Flexible

It's been over a month since we got married but we just wanted to drop a huge thank you to the whole BigTopMania team. The tent really made our day and we got loads of compliments for it. It was great to meet you all! You guys were so helpful and flexible - and even managed (as we requested) to put the tent up with a tree in the middle!

Perfect Wedding

Do not even look anywhere else if you’re looking for a circus tent for your event. These guys have made our wedding just perfect by providing us with the most wonderful venue! Thank you so much all of you for your hard work and the miles you’ve had to travel to make it all happen. We are so grateful!

We think there’s more to this alternative wedding trend than just a flash in the pan.
In fact we know so... unusual weddings have long been a tradition for us having bravely held our own very different circus wedding way back in 1993! Totally against the norm back then! 

Each and every wedding is a unique expression of a couple’s vision and a coming together of different tribes, families and friends.
We are fully inclusive and really enjoy planning and creating quirky themed weddings, LGBT+ weddings, sustainable Eco-weddings, Humanist ceremonies, un-weddings and all things innovative, weird, wonderful and non-conformist!  

As an alternative wedding supplier, we help set the scene for a real show-stopping reception and of course you can bring in a celebrant or have an alternative wedding ceremony in or around the tent.
Be unique, be creative, be a rebel and be yourselves!

We provide the backdrop for you to put your individual touches to…

As a result we are never surprised at what goes on in and around our tents. We remain constantly amazed with the diversity and we absolutely love to see the finished product.

Unique, bespoke weddings take all shapes and forms. Most of our customers for weddings require a marquee venue to host their entire wedding reception. Occasionally, it’s as an extra party venue when the meal happens in a barn for instance and there isn't enough room to party!

We will work with you to create a wedding marquee package that you want; reflecting your tastes and styles.

We can hire you the main marquee, catering marquees, decorative fabrics, dance-floors, matting or carpet, lighting systems, outdoor lighting, fire bowls and other finishing touches and theatrics.  For maximum choice, we work closely with furniture suppliers in your local area to provide the best furniture styles.
We love your input so be creative and ready!
