Marquees are most definitely enhanced by the addition of an internal lining; especially for weddings and other special occasions. Our standard linings are in softly pleated ivory and are complemented by the addition of a pelmet/swag at eaves height. Stock colours are ivory, burgundy, royal blue, red, lilac, gold and Black Watch tartan. Other options are available for an additional cost.
Without the addition of a lining the metal structure of the marquee is in full view and thus our wedding quotations would always include a lining as standard.
Black Out Linings
Black out linings can be used to as a backdrop to stage areas or to give an additional effect within party marquees e.g. to alternative the ivory ceiling with a black ceiling to give a different look and feel. Black out walls are also available.
Star Cloth Linings
A star cloth ceiling is a popular addition to party marquees and we can offer a black star cloth ceiling. Additional options for star cloth ceilings are now available in ivory, royal blue and red from some of the specialist hire companies.
Custom made fitted linings (known as ‘tack off’) are available in a wide range of colours. These linings are made to measure and are installed by a specialist company.
Our standard lighting for lined marquees is modern white globe style chandelier – all of which are fully dimmable to create a varying atmosphere as required. We also allow, within our quoted prices, for outside lights at the main entrance and toilets plus the addition of a floodlight at the back entrance for use by the caterer – especially useful when loading their vans late into the night.
Our decorative and entertainment lighting is wide and varied including colour changing LED spotlights, colour changing LED striplights, 7 different colours of LED fairylights, pin spots and mirror balls, traditional spotlights and all the truss, dimmers and cable required to install them.
Full Range of Functional Lighting
In addition to our standard chandelier and entertainment range of lighting we have the largest stock of alternative marquee lighting options in Scotland e.g. Brass Chandeliers, Strip Lights, Festoon Lighting and floodlights which all provide functional lighting.
Bespoke Lighting Packages
