How far in advance do I need to book a marquee?

It depends on the time of year; October and November are very, very busy for marquee hire, because that's when all the agricultural shows are going on. So you probably need to book six months in advance. In February and March, it’s similar because there are a lot of weddings. If you’re planning a February or March wedding, you're should book at least six to nine months out, possibly 12, to ensure you get the date and exact equipment you want. Pre Covid, weddings were booked two years out but at the moment you are looking close to that six months mark for the busy period.

For the December and January period, it's not quite as busy. But you're still looking at about three to six months for bookings. We have more availability in December and January. For the rest of the year (winter) you're down to a month or two, because not so many people want to get married in winter! So if you have a time in mind, I do recommend getting in touch with us at Johnson and Couzins as soon as possible, so we can reserve your marquee and equipment for your preferred date.
