Something Colourful and Just Different Enough

Our emphasis is on taking the look, feel, individuality and inspiration of the Fairground, Circus and Festival worlds and transferring them to your Wedding. We aim to leave you with memories of a colourful event and a stress-free process every step of the way. This creates an overall experience both before and on the day that you and your guests will talk about for years to come.

See below for details of our free Guide 'How to Hire a Marquee' which will outline all of the stages of the hire process and make it as transparent and enjoyable as possible for you.

Our Tents

Nebula

The biggest and newest tent on the block. Capable of housing a huge wedding under one roof, it will provide cover for a large stage, a full sit-down meal and still leave space for a bar and a dancefloor.

The President

Striking and beautiful, this marquee really stands out from the crowd, giving a fantastic lift of colour to any event and a warm wash of colour from the inside.

CandyCane

Leaning even more heavily towards the traditional circus look, we decided that we'd allow a bit of white if it was mixed in nicely with a striking red. Very light inside and a perfect cenrepiece to any outdoor wedding.

The Mulberry

Emanates sunny vintage flair. Stunning both inside and out, the Mulberry is our most versatile tent too. It can be specially constructed in a variety of sizes to suit your preference, from 9m to 24m.

"How to Hire a Wedding Marquee"

guide here.

Hi, I'm Arif from Terrapin Tents and Contents.

I've been hiring out marquees for a long time and I know that it's easy for people to forget what it's like coming into a new industry that they might not understand. Most people haven't hired a tent before but if you have, this is still for you.

I wanted to simplify the process, so I wrote a Guide to help you through the whole thing from start to finish called 'How to Hire a Marquee'. You can get your free PDF copy of it by filling out the form below

To get in touch you only have to reply to the email containing your Guide or you'll find some contact details at the bottom of this page.

Want to know more? Read on....


What is the Guide?

It's a PDF which will take you through the process and make it as transparent as possible for you so that by the time we talk (if we talk…) you know exactly what I'm going to ask you and a lot more about what you want.

I'm not keeping any secrets, I'm not even trying to convince you to hire from me. This is general advice for you to take and do what you will with.

It'll give you ideas and help you to learn what you should be able to reasonably expect from your marquee hire company. I'm big into transparency and having things kept 'in the club' isn't really the way I do stuff.

Why have I written it?

This helps you because you get to know what to expect to have to decide before you even email a hire company.

This helps the company (whether it's me or not) because believe it or not, better-informed customers are actually much easier to help. They know what questions to ask and have a better idea of what they want so that I can get on with making it happen.

No obligation, if you don't like it you don't even have to give it the hard drive space. Just delete it. But even if it gives you one idea, it's worth a read, right?

If you know a bit already or you just want to have a talk, you'll find a phone number and an email at the foot of the page too. Simple.

But really, I'm telling you this because it could well save us both a lot of time. you'll see what kind of tents I do (coloured, stripey) and also a bit about what kinds of tents I don't do (white).

You'll get some ideas about what you want from your event and be able to ask me for what you want.

Sound good? I bet you an email I can open your eyes even just a little bit.

Just fill out the form next to this text. Do that and the Guide will be with you within minutes. By the time you've read that you'll have all the information I can give you.

I think you'll like it.

Best,
