Ambassador Marquees Marquee Hire Essex, Cambridge, Herts & Suffolk Mon, 11 Nov 2019 04:52:06 +0000 en-GB hourly 1 Ambassador Marquees 32 32 A Billiard Themed Event Thu, 10 Oct 2019 08:18:01 +0000

Ambassador Marquees had the pleasure of doing a Corporate event for 150 guests with a Billiard theme, being the client pleaser that we are, we were more than happy to oblige! The event was hosted at The Down Hall Hotel in Bishop’s Stortford, it’s a stunning venue and our Marquee was nicely attached to the hotel via a walkway.

Sticking true to the Old-Fashioned Billiard theme, we decorated the Marquee with rustic pub furniture to really make the guests get a feel for the environment. The event was a corporate one and the theme really suited the event type, it was professional but also at the same time quite trendy. The main Marquee had a starcloth ceiling, giving it an exclusive Monte Carlo feel.

A Billiard theme wouldn’t be complete without a pool table! We furnished the Marquee decorations  with old rustic pub furniture and a classic red carpet to keep in line with the theme. We put the pool table in a separate space in the Marquee to ensure that people wanting to play would be able to do so without interruption.

We wanted to carry the ambience outside as well as in. The rustic barrels and stools were used outside as a special touch to help guests enjoy the theme all night long wherever they were!

A Norfolk Country Wedding Tue, 24 Sep 2019 11:11:18 +0000

Ambassador Marquees had the pleasure of helping to create this beautiful wedding in Norfolk at the Barn Drift in Norfolk. The Bride and Groom wanted a marquee, without losing the beauty of the scenery throughout the day.  We were able to provide a Clear roof and walled Marquee to capitalise on the surroundings, helping to set the tone with a genuine country feel.

The open roof allowed for natural light to come in and brighten up the area, with only some subtle artificial lighting required for aesthetic purposes as the night drew in. The low lighting bulbs draped across the ceiling, together with candles on the tables produced a very romantic and intimate setting that was clearly enjoyed by the happy couple and their guests.

As part of our consultancy service, we worked with the couple to develop their ideas of a rustic country wedding into reality, keeping the decorations to a minimum and letting the natural surroundings create the ultimate dining environment. From the use of furniture, to the minimalistic décor, we were extremely pleased to deliver the country theme and feeling that the clients had hoped for.

We would like to add that it really was a very nice venue for any kind of celebration, and a great space for a wedding. The ceremony took place in a walled side garden with the Bride, Groom and Minister stood in front of a stunning view of the clear blue sky and Norfolk countryside.

As with all of our wedding marquee hire services, we love the variety of working in different places, and trying to meet different personal tastes. Where this couple wanted a very simple, yet classy wedding, we personally feel that the use of wooden tables and chairs in the natural environment gave the wedding a genuine rustic look.

Making Memories with Marquee’s Fri, 23 Aug 2019 15:15:29 +0000
Anybody can put up a Marquee, but not everyone can create a Memory…

Ambassador Marquees have been providing Marquee Hire services for over 20 years. From small backyard brunches, to big weddings and events, we have catered for all types of clients in almost every scenario and setting.

The experience of arranging all these events enables us to expect the unexpected, and we are fairly certain that we have encountered most of the issues that could be faced over our many years.

Probably the most important consideration when arranging a wedding or event is external suppliers and bringing everything together on the day to make sure everything runs smoothly. That’s where our experience really makes a difference.

We don’t just set up the marquee and leave the rest to you…! No instead we help with everything, bringing in tables, chairs, ceiling decorations, lights, heating the list goes on and on, we want to make sure that your event goes off with a bang and doesn’t end early because there isn’t a generator powerful enough to power the lights and the heating.

We have accrued a very good list of suppliers, and even have backup suppliers for our backups – just to ensure that if something were to go wrong, we are able to fix it right away! We aren’t oblivious to the things that can go wrong during an event, but a lot of people can be, and when you’re trying to juggle caterers, lights, decorations, location, marquee hire, guests, parking, generators, it can become incredibly stressful and the smallest hiccup can knock everything out of sync with the potential to ruin the whole event.

No matter the occasion, we have a professional and experienced team that can help. We love what we do here, and it fills us with joy knowing that we have created an event that will leave clients with those happy memories that will last a lifetime.

Just to give you an idea of how our Marquee Hire sizes really range! On the left you can see how we fit a small marquee between 2 buildings creating a very private and intimate marquee, whereas the one on the right was a big wedding party.

We have a wide range of marquee sizes available for any occasion, no matter how big or small, from tight spaces to spacious surroundings for hundreds of people. So when you are planning your next event, let us do all of the thinking for you to make sure you can just enjoy your day!

Beauty in the Table Mon, 29 Jul 2019 09:43:53 +0000

The best way to bring your wedding theme and colour scheme to life is through your table decorations. It’s a great chance to let your personalities shine through, from sparkly tea lights to sweet-smelling foliage, shining candelabras to pretty pearls and crystals – the choice is all yours!


Flora and foliage are the go-to when bringing beauty and colour into your wedding. When you are choosing your flowers, it is important to consider what is in season to ensure you will be able to get your hands on exactly what you want. Whether you are looking for delicate and cute displays or tall and striking arrangements, there is plenty to choose from. You may even wish to opt for a more budget-friendly approach with green succulents on your tables to give a rustic feel to your wedding.


It is the oldest trick in the book, but it never stops being true that lighting is everything. Using candles, tea lights or lanterns in your table design is the best way to set an overall mood and help show off all the pretty details of your table décor that you’ve spent months thinking about.


Your centrepieces will be the crowning glory of your wedding table design. As the main feature of the guest’s tables, everyone is going to be looking at them throughout the wedding breakfast, and that means you’ll want them to be exceptional – something that stands out. The design and style of the centrepiece is down to your personal choice, so make sure you do your research and choose something that suits your wedding style and colour palette.

Table garlands

Floral table garlands bring instant style to table designs and give real impact to table décor. They’re an extra little detail that is a simple and cost-effective addition that you can create yourself and craft them to work with any theme. A perfect wedding decoration for any season.

Table runners & tablecloths

Tablecloths themselves are a standard item (or should be) available from the venue, however, you can personalise your design with a different tablecloth or runner. Once you have chosen your centrepiece, you can further add to your creation. You might want a full-spread tablecloth or a simple runner, but whatever you choose you’ll want perfect synchronicity with your colour palette and match the theme style so think about crocheted or delicate lace borders to differentiate them from the normal table covers.

You can also follow your design through with matching napkins.

Table names & numbers

Table names and numbers are a necessary item but can be made unique to both of you. Whether they are places special to you, holiday destinations, sports teams, movies, books, songs, games, famous quotes, flower names or gemstones (the list is almost endless), this little detail will make all the difference to your day and add greatly to your theme.

You’ll also need to think about how you’re going to display the names and numbers. This is another good one to google for ideas – there are so many options to choose from it’s impossible to list them all.

Place cards & menus

Place cards are a humble, but essential, requirement of a wedding table, guests need to know where they’ve been placed, and a small, beautifully designed card is the easiest way to do that. It’s also a nice little keepsake.

Menus are not as important to have as place cards are but are still a nice add-on to incorporate to your plan, as well as being another nice memory of the day.

It goes without saying that you’ll want your place cards and menus to match your invitations and order of service, so bear that in mind when you’re designing your table.

Wedding table confetti, crystals, gems and pearls

Make your table design shine by including a little wedding table confetti or colourful crystals, gems or pearls. It’s a classy and uncomplicated way to add colour or texture to the décor. Carefully scattering wedding dining tables, the gift table, welcome table or any other surface with eye-catching confetti is an excellent way to dress up your tables.

Wedding favours

Wedding favours are an age-old tradition, but whether they are part of a modern-day wedding is a contentious issue. Some want to keep to the old practices, and some want to bring them up to date. Whichever side of the fence you fall on they’re a perfect way to add a personal touch to your table. So, whether you’re purchasing your gifts or making them by hand remember these golden rules; keep your budget in mind, make sure it’s a practical gift, leave plenty of time to make or prepare them and stick to your theme, that way you can ensure they’re something that guests will appreciate.

Marquee Bars and Furnishings Tue, 21 May 2019 12:18:26 +0000

Furniture is everything when you are bringing a Marquee space to life. There is a world of options available for you to choose from. We strongly suspect that the most important feature to complete your celebration is the bar!

Over the years, we have seen all kinds of funky things be done with Marquee Bars to help bring your theme and colour scheme alive. The latest trend we are seeing more and more of is having a separate Marquee area for the bar, and we are absolutely loving it.

This is a great way to incorporate a relaxing seated area, away from the dance floor for those who need a quick break from all the fun. Using soft colours this corner can become a peaceful haven for your guests to unwind.

Your bar can also symbolise the theme of your event, for example, in a rustic wedding, we can provide a chic wooden bar. The relaxed tones of the wood and some greenery can work together to set the scene for a natural atmosphere.

Another style of bar we offer is a Toucan Bar, this can be a semi-circle or full circle and poses as a striking feature in you Marquee. Stools and Bar tables can be used to really separate this part of the Marquee from the dance floor or eating area.

Ambassador Marquees also work with specialist furniture designers Alfresco, who can create your dream circular bar using LED lighting. This is a great technique for changing the ambience in your Bar area with the use of different coloured lighting.

So whatever your Marquee furnishing dreams, get in touch to find out how the Ambassador Marquees team can help you create your vision!

Despite being small, the space was full of charm and the high ceilings with light fabrics and fairy-lights created a relatively spacious feel. The cosy décor worked with this fresh feel, resulting in the most inviting atmosphere.

This tight spot between two buildings was transformed into the dreamy festive hideout by just a splash of creativity and confidence.

Clear Roof Wedding Marquee Wed, 06 Mar 2019 11:47:49 +0000

A Clear Roof Wedding Marquee has become one of our most popular demands and we can certainly see why! With clever positioning and decoration, the final product can be a real show-stopper. Clear, panoramic views make way for some spectacular scenery, bringing your wedding venue to life.

The unique structure opens up the marquee to the surrounding greenery and sunshine throughout the day, and offers the chance to party under the beautiful starlit sky once the sun has set.

The Ambassador Marquees team pride ourselves on creating the perfect setting to meet any needs. Decorative cloths can be carefully draped to provide shade where necessary and clever lighting techniques can be used to compliment the natural sun and shade.

You may want to opt for a combination of two linked marquees; one with a clear roof to provide a bright, open area and another with a traditional ceiling for a little more shade in the summer months.

This also has the added benefit of creating the feel of separate rooms, should you want to keep the dining and dancing separate.

So, if you are looking to give your guests the extra wow factor and create the picture perfect day, a Clear Roof Wedding Marquee may be just what you are looking for.
