The Cornish Cream Oyster is part of the Oyster Pearl collection, but with the delicate Cornish Cream lining as the interior. It has a pretty 1m veranda around the perimeter on the outside, which is mirrored by the same shape sculpting with pale blue piping to match with the Cornish Cream print on the inside of the lining. As our most popular wedding interior this makes this canvas pole tent ideal as a wedding tent as it already feels fully decorated inside and just needs a few floral finishing touches before inviting in your guests!

This white canvas marquee measures from 12m x 12m to 12m x 36m - and is suitable for accommodating up to 350 people for a wedding with space for a dance floor, bar area and lounge seating too. There is a range of coordinating lounge furniture to work with the Cornish Cream print in this tent, and the William Morris range of furniture also compliment this interior beautifully. The lighting consists of uplighters around the walls and fairy lights under the lining which create a soft twinkle effect in the evening.

The Cornish Cream Oyster tent has a whimsical charm about it and has 7ft walls and centre poles measuring 6m in the middle of the tent and has wooden poles around the edge of the tent with teardrop finials on the top of it. Cotton ropes hold the structures up and give it their strength, and due to this, we only recommend this structure is erected on grass.

Dear Katherine, As I said to Jeremy when he came to collect the marquee yesterday….Cant I keep it please? I had fallen in love with it! All my guests were impressed with it. I have a nice wide garden and it sat beautifully along the hedge so that you could appreciate the shape and detail.

What is the maximum capacity for the Cornish Cream Oyster tent?

Answer: 350 people

Depending on how many guests you have, whether you are dining, and if you want a dance floor and other seating and chillout areas, will determine what size of tent you will require.

This table provides a good reference to work out what kind of space you will need. If you are having an even bigger party than our maximum capacity, we suggest putting more tents together!

What spacing requirements should I consider?

Answer: The minimum space you will need is 14m x 14m for the Cornish Cream Oyster

This area takes into account the tent itself as well as the guide ropes, which need 2 metres around every side to ensure it is set up safely. Use the chart above to work out exactly how much space you will need.

Being frame structures our tents can be erected on hard standings such as tennis courts, concrete car parks and gravel drives and this requires eye bolts to be drilled into the floor. Because of their construction, they require the area where they are being erected to be level. Scaffolding can be put in place to level areas that have too much of a slope to them. However, if the ground is slightly uneven then a hard-flooring upgrade can be used to level out the floor within the tent.

How long does it take to set up?

Answer: The Cornish Cream Oyster takes 1-2 days to set up

Our tents vary in size, some of our smaller tents can be set up in a few hours, whilst our largest tents can take several days. The build would ideally begin on Monday or Tuesday to ensure everything is ready for a Saturday event.

To give you an idea of the build and what to expect at your party, here's a time-lapse of one of previous events.

Are the tents waterproof?

Answer: Yes, they are waterproof

The exteriors are made from high quality cotton canvas which is regularly waterproofed throughout the season. It is important when positioned on windy sites to put in additional supporting poles inside the tent to support the pyramid ceiling, to ensure they can endure winds of up to 30 mph.

Will the tents be warm enough?

Answer: Yes, they are easily heated

Our tents can be easily heated on cool days as their vented elevated ceilings and canvas exteriors are geared towards providing shade on a hot day rather than warmth on a cool one.

When would you take them down?

Answer: The following day

We would come and take them down the following day (usually a Sunday).

Do you need a power supply?

Answer: Yes

We will always require power. Most lighting can run from a 13-amp domestic supply or a generator. Our cabling is weatherproof.

How much will it cost?

Answer: Varies (See examples)

Every single party and event is unique, however, we have given a few examples below to give you an idea of how much it might cost.
