Get the country-garden look...

Our William Morris marquee is like our Garden Room and was created as a homage to one of our favourite designers' centenaries; William Morris, and was commissioned by The National Trust, to use for the Centenary of the founding of Morris & Co.

William Morris was part of the Arts and Crafts movement of the 1930's and spent much time studying the Islamic collection at the V&A museum where his famous floral patterns were inspired.

Our ivory and sage green screen-printed ceiling lining provides a backdrop on it's own, or can be combined with light cotton voile swags in the print 'Golden Lilies' as an additional detail.  The walls have a Morris-inspired 'Tree of Life' design that is a painstakingly created 12 colour screen-print.

The William Morris tent is a quintessentially English tent interior and 'English Country Garden' look, perfect for unique marquee weddings and summer garden parties.  It proved a popular option for Micro Weddings in 2020 due to it's flexibility in size.

A selection of beautiful pieces of furniture have been hand covered in his designs and are available to hire to complete the look including deck-chairs with William Morris prints, kashmiri hand embroidered cushions, chez lounges and of course cushions.

For a more rustic look, we use hessian draping instead of printed voile, with the addition of our Wisteria chandelier and combine with pallet seating, to create a natural, earthy interior.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for providing us with the most extraordinarily beautiful tent. It was a constant source of admiration and wonder. It was the perfect place to gather all our favourite people together to enjoy the splendours of the evening.

What is the maximum capacity for the William Morris tent?

Answer: 260 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 4.5m x 4.5m for the William Morris

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 William Morris takes 1 day 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.
