The amount of amps that are drawn from a set of Uplighters 6 is approximately 3 amps. We provide circuit breakers and all we require is a standard plug point. For larger events or events that are not near an electrical supply generators can be used. Please contact us for our recommended suppliers.
You are more than welcome to decorate the marquees yourself, however we would request that you use string where ever possible as opposed to tape, and only attach decorations to the ropes and poles and do not attach anything else to the canopy or walls of the marquee.
We do ask clients to refrain from using party poppers or crepe paper as they can stain the marquee.

As soon as possible to avoid disappointment
We try to ensure that we do not cause unnecessary damage. It is important that the grass is cut prior to setup and we have as flat a surface as possible. Depending on the length of the hire period during the summer months the grass may discolour where a marquee has been located.
We require a non-refundable deposit of 25% of the total order value with confirmation. The balance is payable 30 days before the event. If you need to postpone your arrangements we will try to accommodate your requirements on an alternative date.
It does depend on the summer weather, the type of event and the condition of the grass. Most weddings require matting but many of the more informal events that we cover work well without the carpet or matting.
Yes we use Dandy Dura matting which has a very tight weave on a DPC, either nailed or taped down. so it's no problem for heels.
It really depend on the weather and how late your event is likely to go on in the evening. Generally they are required in early spring and late autumn
