On a beautiful autumn day in October this wedding took place in Surrey. Decorated in an awesome bright red, the marquee with its white walls and drapery served as a fabulous backdrop to the whole setting. 

The wedding ceremony took place in a section of the marquee outlined particularly for this purpose.

Summer is a great time to have a wedding in a marquee. Spacious and open this marquee offered a delightful  view to the surrounding country side, bringing a sense of space and timeless beauty.

The gold sashes on the chairs contrasted with the table décor creating an overall look of true elegance.

Tall imposing floral designs create instant impact. Ruthless winds dictate a shorter heavier design.

Focal areas simply create interest. Are the floral designs placed at the entrance, on tables, or act as free standing arrangements? 

Are they to be suspended from the ceiling creating an air of mystery, fun,  just sheer ambience, elegance?

Evenings or darker winter months, lights are an asset. Sparkly lights and lanterns create an added feature.  Weddings/ winter wonderland themes a definite must! Mix them in with your floral designs and you have an impressive space.

Generally white, marquees allow for the use of any colour in abundance. Be guided by your chosen colour, as mo...

Focusing on your potential client's likes and needs is necessary: It highlights your awareness of their business.


Take into account their brand image, corporate colours, the service/s they offer and the clients they have. There's always the question of what style/type of design do I create? Classic, chic, modern, creative? Does the space that you are going to decorate lend itself to large items? Does it work will with the aesthetics of the building?


With a greater insight into the company, it's time to plan, execute and deliver. Accuracy is essential. Developing a strong trusting relationship is essential.


The ultimate goal is to make positive impact with a spectacular design which generates communication, satisfaction, visual interest and an item of  high value.


Creations can be customised by using the client's corporate colours and logos in the design- for both balloon and floral creations. It's important to realise that designs are created for the client or potential customer and no...
