FLOWER & WEDDING MARQUEE
The newly named Flower & Wedding Marquee can be found in its new location along Avenue A, next to the Craft Marquee, and combines the area's finest wedding creatives and the beautiful scents and vibrant colours from our flower arrangements, offering glamour, passion, inspiration and guidance all under one roof!
Sit and enjoy as we show you some of the most stunning and on-vogue dresses available for your big day, taste some of the most delectable treats and beverages or simply have a stroll around the marquee whilst the kids enjoy the 'have-a-go' activities on offer.
This year, we welcome the likes of The Wedding Dress Barn who are providing the dresses for the catwalk, as well as Suits Newbury. Moonraker Disco are providing staging, lighting, backdrops and sound system and Fizz Hire will be furnishing the marquee with their collection of tables, chairs and place settings.
We have an amazing collection of trade stands in the marquee offering everything from bouguets and buttons holes, cosmetics, local accommodation, wedding favours, cake makers, jewellery and accessories, and even a personal trainer!
