  • Our traditional vintage style pole marquees provide a stunning venue for a wedding, be it the ceremony itself, the reception or both. They are elegant and stylish and provide a blank canvas for decoration in your desired theme or style. Our marquees are hand-made using only the highest quality of fabric and were chosen by us because of their perfect wedding look.

Ask a question
What is your most memorable wedding?
We once had a wedding that lasted a full three days - non-stop partying, non-stop drinking, non-stop fun for a full on weekend away retreat! Our guests went away having had the most incredibly thrilling and fun-packed weekend that has given them memories to relish for life!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Unique, Personalised, Captivating, Elegant and Eccentric.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The ability we have as a team to always ensure our clients have beaming smiles from the initial enquiry to the lasting memories.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Enjoy the planning stage of your special day - it's a hugely exciting time for you, your partner, family and friends - relish every minute!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Our favourite personal touch was during a blessing, when a couple and their two daughters created a really beautiful hand print canvas, to always remember that moment.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We start by getting to know the couple as much as we can - what they are looking for, what they like, what they don't like, and everything in between. Everything we plan is completely bespoke and personal to each couple, and therefore it is essential we know exactly what the couple are after from the offset. After that, we take the couple to visit their chosen venue, which is where the excitement starts to build! It is then planning planning planning, where the couple can ensure we will provide as much or as little communication with the pernickety details as they would like. When the day itself arrives, everything is completely taken care of - there is no point whatsoever where the couple will have to worry about the smooth runnings of the day - that's our job!
How do you create an ambiance in a marquee?
Each marquee comes with beautiful silk linings and fairy lights throughout the ceiling linings which creates a soft romantic setting.
Where is the most exciting place that you have put a marquee?
In central London, we have a venue called Mudchute Park and Farm which has a beautiful backdrop of Canary Warf. This venues is great for London-based clients as its a short tube ride to the perfect festival site!
What is your record time for putting up your marquee?
Our team can put up the stunning Barkers Marquee in 2 hours!
What is your favourite design of marquee and why?
Our traditional Scandinavian King Pole Barkers Marquee is extremely impressive, especially when the client wants to theme the inside. We have created designs such as a Bollywood and Irish themed bars and marquee decorations.
