Real Marquee Wedding Case study


We were contacted by a lovely couple from Glasgow who were hosting their wedding on the isle of Bute. 

They were looking for a marquee to hold the celebrations in and food for the X guests and with a further X guests for evening celebrations. 

The couple were looking for both internal and external add ons from the one supplier to cut down on the inevitable higher delivery charges that come with having such an event on an island. 

What we supplied

Main marquee

9m wide x 24m long main clearspan marquee within the ground of a holiday rental. The flooring was direct lay interlocking wooden flooring.

The marquee was dresses with full ivory lining and a full side of panoramic windows to make the most of the view. 

Heating, Lighting, Furniture & Audio

We supplied and fitted the heating, festoon and chandelier lighting along with our rustic style furniture of lime-wash chiavari chairs and rustic trestle tables. 


With the main marquee taken care of, we then set about providing full power supply and distribution to the lights, toilets, audio equipment and catering area.

Along with a 2+1 luxury toilet trailer for all guests and the catering area.

Finished product

The wedding was a success!

By using Vulcan Hire for their big day they had saved on the hassle of multiple suppliers, unnecessary delivery fees and possible delays.
