If you’re looking for a wedding marquee that is striking, beautiful and a blank canvas for your perfect day, Shades have what you need.


I was drawn to shades because they thought about every single detail when designing their tents. Stiletto heels – no problem! They use heavy-duty & sturdy flooring! A windy day- no problem! Their tents are constructed to perfection built to withstand every weather condition! Uneven flooring? Not a problem – the team are professionals! The quality of the tent was brilliant, the team who construct the tent were all fast-paced yet meticulous, they were friendly, helpful & a lovely group of people to work alongside. They helped with some decorations at high level & moving tables. When you deal with a company you expect a certain level of service & Shades blew my expectations out of the water, very professional, polite & kept me up to date with timings, construction dates and takedown. Would always use this team they are experts in what they do & they do it with a smile!Suzy Burgoyne
Wow... this was the words of the majority of our guests when they walked into such an amazing marquee! Shades offered a marquee with a difference which is why we decided to book them and we don't have one regret! The team offer such an amazing service and we can't begin to thank them enough! We had a very heavy downpour on our wedding day and David was truly amazing, he made sure everything was as it should be and we were oblivious of the whole thing. The Marquees are just perfect and we would 100% recommend Shades for all your marquee needs! Thanks so much guys! xxxJess & Alex
Myself and Jason have nothing but praise for everybody we came in contact with from the initial phone call, where I must have fired a thousand questions at Dave! Right up to the final hour. Nothing was ever too much hassle and emails and phone calls were answered very quickly. It was so reassuring having someone on hand all day knowing there would be that support. Nothing was ever too much trouble! We shopped around for a long time to find the perfect set up and as soon as I had decided on an aurora tent, I started researching companies who provided them. I had a great feeling about shades from the get go and they certainly made our day perfect. Thank you guys, for helping us to create a day we will always remember!Sara & Jason
