Wedding Marquee Installation – Private Location.

Alex & Dennis – Lower Plenty – March 2017

We were approached by the awesome Nat from Harper & Co on behalf of Alex and Dennis for their special wedding day late 2016. Open Air Events was engaged to supply a clear roof marquee large enough to cater for 250 guests seated as well as a large dance floor and featured bridal tables. The solution; a massive 15m x 40m clear roof structure with 33 rustic tables and 250 white americanas amongst other bits and pieces. The marquee roof line was covered with more than 300 metres of LED festoon lights that were controlled with an adjustable dimmer box. Over the feature bridal table we installed a cluster of pendant lights with Edison globes at varying heights which were mixed in with a huge 6 meter long floral hanging arrangement which exceeded 200kg. Our expert rigging team facilitated the appropriate trussing which was lowered on the day of the event for the florists (Ivy & Eve) to do their magic. To finish off what was already a spectacular set up, they capped it off by utilising Mega Deck to install more 100 square metres of a clear (acrylic) pool cover which was the dance floor area.

Curve Roof Marquee Hire

The curve roof marquee slightly changes the roofline adding a completely different look to the tent, especially for the hire of marquees for the use in weddings and corporate events. Our structures have been designed with flexibility in mind with an array of weight loading capabilities to allow for the hanging of lighting, art installations and floral arrangements from the roof line.

We installed over 100 meters of marquee for the event, installing the marquees on a tight timeline. We completed the job within the timeline specified so the public car park the event was held in was ready for handover back to the public to minimise disruption.
