Dundee and Angus, we have a lot to thank you for. You provide us with exquisite coastal views of the River Tay, boast rich industrial heritage from your involvement in the Declaration of Independence and you are Scotland’s first City of Design. The City of Dundee and Angus are promoted as “One City, Many Discoveries” and there have never been truer words spoken, as more personally, I would like to thank you for the giving us Aberdeen Angus Beef and Peter Pan. As if that wasn’t good enough, Dundee is Scotland’s sunniest City. Grab your suitcase, we’re moving!
Lucky for the O’Neill’s they don’t need to move; they have all this right on their doorstep. Or, on the 23rd December 2017 they had much more than a gateway to Neverland in their garden, but in fact our marquees as they hosted their home marquee wedding just 10 minutes from the coastline of Dundee.
As you may be able to see, this was no simple build. Why? That whopping big fence going through the middle of our 6m x 15m clear span marquee, but what a spectacular feature it is. There are no limitations at Central Events. Creating a real homely feel, this wooden fence with horse carriage style wheels transformed this marquee into a traditional, yet contemporary wedding venue along with the use of our products. To get this fine mix of contemporary and rustic, the attention was in the detail.
Our roof, walls and swags of ivory lining were draped throughout and lit by a full roof of our warm white fairy lights. Our uplighters lit the wall surroundings of the marquee, with the added touch of gel filters turning the light from warm white to red when desired. Along with this, our LED disco lights mounted to the roof beams created a relaxed atmosphere across the marquee with a selection of coloured tones. 65 of our limewash chiavari chairs with ivory pads and 5 of our 6ft trestle tables sat upon a deep red carpet, with a combination of our whisky barrels and silver poseur tables within the bar area again combining the theme of new and old.
Adjoining to the main marquee structure we provided a 3m x 3m Pagoda acting as a DJ booth. This was equipped with flooring, red carpet, our PA system with a microphone, and lit by our DJ lights. Additionally, incorporating the surroundings of the garden we created a decking area from our dark plywood flooring acting as a floored walkway to the loo units. To provide a bit of heat for those outside in this bitter Winter month, we provided our patio heaters with gas, and for those inside the marquees kept cosy with the use of our marquee ducted heater with fuel.
This marquee wedding in Dundee shows that adapting to your surroundings and a bit of creativity can create a truly magical venue, and that’s not just because of Peter Pan.
