Photo Competition entries


As we had such an overwhelming response to the marquee photo competition we ran at the end of last year, we thought it only right that we showcase some of the best photographs we received and give you all a little bit of a treat on this cold January day!

This stunning photo submitted by Ashley Events cleverly uses the reflexion of the traditionally striped marquee in the tranquil water to create a dramatic image.

We loved this image by Absolute Canvas and it was a close contender to win our competition, the colour of the sky along with the soft lighting emitting from the marquee creates a really serene and beautiful shot.

The setting of the marquee is almost as important as the marquee itself in many of the photos, as demonstrated beautifully in this image by Tents and Events. The rolling green hills and fluffy white clouds along with the fabulous multi-span marquee really make you think of an English County Wedding.

This stunningly beautiful shot was another submission by our competition winners, The Marquee Hire Company.  The soft-focus purple flowers work as the perfect natural frame to the traditional marquee at the centre of the shot.

We had so many fantastic submissions we could keep going all day but I will leave it at that for now.   We do want to share a few more with you though so keep a look out for more inspiring and beautiful images in next week’s blog…

Why Clearspan Marquees are so durable and perfect for any event

Tectonics UK are one of the leading manufacturers of clearspan marquees – and using their “Multispan” product as an example, we can see why modern marquees are ideal for any event.

Multispans are made from 3m long bays which means they can be any size as long as it is in multiples of 3m and therefore are able to suit almost any event.  They can also be adapted to create a unique look; for example, incorporating a curved roof, high tip ends, peaked roof or a bell shape on one end.   Clearspan Marquees can also be split up with internal walls/linings meaning the product is extremely flexible in its usage. They can even be linked to buildings with integrated walkways meaning they are perfect for any time of year.

Multispan covers are made from the highest quality 650g/m² PVC which are available in a range of colours making it versatile as well as practical and walls can be made with or without windows.  The roofs can either be tensioned with cord and hooks or with bars using a steel tension rail.  Either method will provide strength and durability depending on your needs.  You can also get perfectly level flooring, made to measure for clearspan marquees.

Multispan frames are made from high-grade 4-channel aluminium extrusions with galvanised steel connections which means they are extra strong and durable and have a much longer lifespan than other marquees and structures.
