Indian Wedding Marquee,
Henna Party Suppliers UK.
Are you looking for an Asian or Indian Wedding Marquee or a Henna Party Marquee supplier in the UK?
Why not do as this lovely Bride (Chandni from Watford, UK) did and host a Henna Party in one of our marquees?
Chandni chose to organise a circus theme Henna Party as part of her wedding celebrations.
The event was to be held the day after the English wedding and the night before the Indian wedding.
The marquees were set up in the back garden with plenty of time to allow decorating and catering installations.
A truly colourful and exciting venue was prepared by a great team of suppliers including;
Bigtopmania, (tents, flooring, side shows, lighting, circus props, electrics, heaters),
Jay and I Events (bridal seat, low chairs, cushions, stage),
Sapna Caterers (full Indian buffet catering for 300!),
Kelly’s Occasions. (candy floss and popcorn) and
Mobile Thrones (Loo’s and generator).
We had the pleasure of being at the event running the side shows that were a great hit with the children (and a lot of adults!!).
The event was nothing if not very colourful.. not only the venue but the dress code. Fabulous, bright and very stylish!
Near 300 guests had a great night, most of the ladies got henna done on hands, arms and legs.
For collecting guest photographs; good use of the Wedding Party smart phone App was made.. highly recommend this as a fun free way to do it
which looks pretty good.
Here are some snapshots we took.
So why not try us when you want an Asian wedding venue or an Indian wedding marquee for a henna party?
A muddy but ruddy good time!
On Saturday 16 March 2013 we participated in the first Fabwedfest. An alternative DIY Wedding Festival which was held on the beautiful grounds of Muddiford’s Court in Devon.
Fabulous Wedding Festival
It was our first time exhibiting at a wedding show after visiting numerous ones over the years it was great to be on the other side of the desk. We choose to work hard at this one as it matched our ethos much more than most.
Bigtopmania Display Stand
There were some beautiful displays from the various sectors of the wedding world.
Some lovely bespoke artwork, couture, styling ideas and jewellery to be seen.
Pizza Monkey fueled us through the wet day with beautiful stone baked pizzas. That kept us going until the delicious 3 course banquet in the evening, by which point we felt we fully deserved to “scoff” the meal which was served by Scoff Catering.
Musical highlights of the day for us were Alex Gregory who had a lovely voice and Mister Kanish who kept us bouncing whilst munching with their funky twists on an impressive range of genre songs.

The catwalk displays kept the crowds happy and the models did a sterling job in the challenging conditions!
“Muddiford” and “Festival theme”…the name gives a clue and we should have known!! The rain had turned much of the field almost into a lake! So the tent flooring suffered… but that’s festivals and the mud and “weddington” boots came in handy!
Note to wedding planners…choose free draining sites for best location!! Avoid heavy clay in the rain!!
Some of the catwalk models
Nice to meet
After plenty of communication it was nice to put faces to names ; amongst others , Limegreen Electrics, Festi-Flags and the lovely ladies from Festival Brides,
Briefly met the team from Cocktail Caravan, didn’t get a chance to sample : ( but the van looked great and there’s always next time!) ( next-time.. more socialising!)
We met a few future Bigtopmania couples, and hopefully showcased our tents to entice a few more brides to be and party animals!
Marquees from our “Strawberry and Cream” and “Scoopy” Ranges
9m x 9m “Scoopy” version of our contemporary but traditional white wedding tent; perfect for vintage events!
“Scoopy” and “Strawberry and Double Cream”
