Marquees are all the rage these days. From weddings to birthdays even the fanciest hotels seem to have some canvas structure to cater for the masses. Within the UK, a marquee is a bride's number two choice of wedding venue, only just being pipped to the post by stately homes which although a dream, are not within everyone's budget. Many seem to think it's a new craze, but it's not, David and Victoria Beckham's lavish marquee wedding was more than two decades ago.
Buying or renting a marquee also means couples don’t have to wait for months or years to get married and they can personalise the venue to suit their tastes. This personalisation can be anything from the flooring, chairs and tables to the flowers or small details like the favours. Although, nothing can change the feel and ambience of the venue more than good lighting. When it comes to decor, it's not just about paper lanterns and disco balls either, if your marquee centers on a focal point, you can draw even more attention to the decor with a grandiose chandelier.
At Essential Supplies we know lighting and we have sourced some of the best in the business to make your venue sparkle.
Our Milan Chandelier oozes style and extravagance. Made with a tough glass stem and crystal-like beads it takes about 20 minutes to assemble as the crystals are wrapped separately but it’s worth the time. Or for something a bit different try adding coloured LED lights above the chandelier, the way the light dances through the crystals is worth seeing.
Sparkly not your thing? Our Montreux range offers a more contemporary look with sleek lines, a twisted stem and a silver nickel finish.
Or, how about our Zurich traditional brass range, available in polished or antique brass these offer a much more rustic or antique feel.
These are available in 5 arm up to our classic 18 arm Zurich, 2 Tier polished brass chandelier. Suitable for any size marquee as a feature piece or how about smaller ones placed along the ridge.
For something completely different try our Lucerne range of vintage cream finish chandeliers. With its elegant curved arms it’s perfect for ivory or white lined marquee weddings, the 16 arm piece is a particularly impressive focal point.
The best thing about this investment centrepiece, it can then be hung in your living room, hallway or conservatory as a stunning reminder of your big day.
