Marquees blurbWedding Marquees in Dorset & Hampshire

Perhaps it’s the fact that the bride can choose the whole décor to match and reflect her wedding colours. Or simply that the whole occasion is so different. Marquees are now so popular that you must book at least six months in advance to guarantee your chosen date. And don’t think they’re restricted to summer.
