WELCOME TO VINTAGE MARQUEES!
The quirky, the beautiful & the bunting... lots of bunting!
Vintage Marquees is a unique Wiltshire based company specialising in the hire of traditional canvas marquees of all sizes. Our marquees date from 1950 until now… some of them are seriously vintage!
Our most popular hire items are our unique old plank top tables and vintage wooden chairs.
As well as offering the standard extras such as fairy lights and dance floors, our ever-expanding range of ‘shabby chic’ and vintage accessories includes lanterns, fire pits, traditional garden games and drinks bars.
If you are looking for a beautiful country wedding or garden party, then look no further!
On to the main event!
All our marquees are made from traditional cotton canvas with natural wooden poles and hemp ropes. From original 1950s tents oozing vintage character that can’t be replicated to stunning, new, large structures with full, clear, panoramic windows.
Festival marquees, dance tents, oak structures, children’s tents and vintage camping and fishing tents… why not?! Loving the unconventional, our quirky tent collection deviates from our traditional, natural canvas marquees. Over time, we have built an eclectic collection of unusual tents and marquees just for fun!
"Thank you for making John and Lydia's day so special - the marquee was amazing and everything they could have wished for."
OUR FANTASTIC FURNITURE
Our huge furniture collection merits its own website!
We specialise in genuine old plank top trestle tables and vintage wooden chairs that beautifully compliment the traditional canvas marquees. We have an ever expanding range of extras such as handmade cushions and bunting, bars, oak barrels, easels and boards, crooks and lanterns – the list goes on. We also provide all the standard extras such as dance floors, lights, catering tents, walkways etc.
"We have been impressed with the friendly and flexible professionalism of your team and would highly recommend Vintage Marquees." Your team were efficient and professional and so friendly! Warmest wishes."
& GARDEN PARTIES
Catering for over 50 weddings every season, for numbers from 25 to 250, the Vintage Marquees team have years of experience and enthusiasm and we are always happy to share our knowledge and ideas.
We cover the full package – flooring, dance floors, bars, and all the furniture and accessories.
Our smaller vintage marquees (and sometimes larger ones!) are ideal for garden parties… did we mention Gleneagles?
Do we travel far? Yes! To Corfu for the Durrels, to Croatia for SAS Rogue Heroes. And of course all the studios, as well as Windsor Race course, High Wycombe Lido, The Peak District, Scotland and Wales….!
Few companies supply genuine old canvas marquees with the character and worn appeal that only comes with age.
Our particularly popular marquees for film are the Army tents including Captain Mainwaring and The Beast, as well as our genuine old natural canvas structures. Our vintage plank top trestle tables and chairs and old oak barrels, deckchairs and fire pits are some of our most popular furniture items for film hire.
& CORPORATE EVENTS
Festival weddings are now so popular and great fun to decorate and accessorise.
But we do love a festival! Some of our favourites so far… Big Festival, Wilderness Festival, Larmer Tree Festival and Hay Literary Festival.
Our traditional marquees are popular for corporate events too, and include Freestyle games in Oxfordshire, Laithwaite Wine and Soho House.
"Thank you once again for your help and support in making the occasion so successful."
