Shades: more than just a marquee… 

If you are looking for a marquee with a difference for your wedding, event or celebration, then look no further.

Our unrivalled range of high quality sailcloth tents, vintage marquees and army tents offer the perfect backdrop for any wedding, party or event.  We also have a fantastic range of furniture available to hire, including circular oak bars, farmhouse tables, cross-back chairs, chesterfield sofas, lanterns and lighting, so creating your perfect event with Shades couldn’t be easier.

Our team have over 25 years of expertise in event management, which means we will be able to offer you sound advice on planning all aspects of your event, including marquee layout and power requirements. Our attention to detail and high standards ensure your marquee will be pristine; from smart, clean linings, to evenly spaced guy ropes and discreetly located loos.  We take an enormous amount of pride in what we do and understand the importance of getting everything spot on every single time.  We also include a technician on site on the day of your event so that we can be on hand to manage your marquee on the day, making sure absolutely every detail is nothing short of perfect for you and your guests.

We are based in Yorkshire and travel throughout the UK offering high quality marquees, furniture, theming and lighting for weddings, celebrations and corporate events.  So whatever stage you’re at with your plans; if you’re just starting out and need some venue recommendations, or you have your own garden or land that is perfect for a party, do get in touch and we’ll be delighted to help.

We look forward to speaking with you soon.

Best Wishes,

Paul & the team at Shades
