It has been the greatest thrill to write my very first wedding book, ‘Planning Your Marquee Wedding, The Ultimate Guide’.

The recent surge of interest in marquee and back garden weddings prompted my foray into publishing and it has been quite a journey, from start to finish. Marquee weddings are my speciality and their soaring popularity has given me the opportunity to impart my experience and wisdom to couples wanting to plan a stress-free wedding with a difference.

‘Planning Your Marquee Wedding’ is a stunning hardback and will be available to order via my website from the 1st of August and gosh, has it been a labour of love! If you’re a couple planning or thinking of planning a marquee wedding then this stunning book will offer you a wonderfully simple guide to the whole fascinating process.

Think of it as your toolkit for the most memorable wedding day! Planning a marquee or back garden wedding can be daunting which was why I felt compelled to curate all of my top insider tips and arrange them into a handy (and beautiful!) guide.

A special mention to ace photographer Andy Davison who supplied all of the exquisite photos, every single one of which is guaranteed to inspire the reader.

I’ve broken down each stage into easy steps; here’s a little sneak peek, just for you:

Where to start

In this opening section I explore why marquee weddings are so magical: the vast range of choices at your disposal, how flexible and budget-friendly they are and the endless possibilities that a blank canvas marquee can offer the happy couple. This is followed by a convenient step by step guide to planning your big day. Yes, I left nothing out in this ambitious endeavour! From choosing your location to assessing car parking potential, no stone is left unturned. There’s even a useful checklist, for extra peace of mind.

The practical stuff

Here we get to the nitty gritty of marquee wedding planning. It might not be as glamorous as dreaming up your decor or choosing your flowers but if you have no power, loos or water supply your wedding will be memorable for all of the wrong reasons. I’ve even popped in a portable toilet vanity kit checklist, because all of your guests deserve to feel pampered!

Designing your marquee

The final section is all about you and your vision. Will your perfect wedding mood board vibe with the marquee you’ve chosen? Amongst other elements I explore how best to zone your marquee space for optimum use, create gorgeous signage, and inject a pop of colour into your blank canvas.

There’s so much more content to discover inside my gorgeous book. Each carefully considered word has been written to enthral, inspire and galvanise.

I hope you find plenty of inspiration for your dream marquee or back garden wedding. With my guide your wedding truly will be a day to remember.
