Marquee weddings at Hallsannery Posted January 15, 2015


If you’re planning a slightly larger wedding, just want a little bit more space or have always dreamed of celebrating your marriage under canvas, a marquee at Hallsannery could be just what you’re looking for!

Since re-opening in 2012, we have hosted a number of marquee weddings, each one with the personalised touches which make your wedding YOUR own. From ever-so-elegant traditional white marquees with ivory drapes, to stunning cone-shaped tipi tents evoking African dreams, to the more modern transparent marquees where you can dine under the stars, the lawns at Hallsannery can house marquees of all shapes and sizes.

For an ‘orangerie’ feel, put your marquee on the East Lawn where a bespoke piece attaches the space to the House so that if the weather does its worst, you won’t even have to step outside. An East Lawn marquee allows you to move seamlessly from the Dining Room to the marquee for your wedding breakfast, before perhaps moving back into the Dining Room for an evening bar, disco and dancing. Style-wise, the transparent marquee approach allows you to enjoy the feeling of being outside whilst being snug and protected from the elements within, whilst the addition of clear windows or push-back sides to a traditional marquee (http:/ provide stunning glimpses through the fairy-lit bamboos to Bideford beyond.

For something amazing and very different, try a tipi tent (or 2!) on the Front Lawn, affording amazing views over the parkland and Estuary. Open-fronted, the tipis offer opportunities for fire pits, ‘chill out’ zones, bar areas and dance floors and the styling possibilities are absolutely endless!
