GTH Journal 2015


Wedding Marquee in your own garden. 

This is a good example of a marquee being used to extend your house to accommodate a wedding or other event at your own home. 

This 10m structure was set on the patio, a watertight entrance with guttering created leading directly into the house.  The floor was carefully set to join the patio and work in the features of the garden and to protect the grounds. 

Unfortunately I only have photos of it under construction, but I hope you get the idea.


Baxters Loch Ness Marathon 2015 at Bucht Park, Inverness

Before and after at Bucht Park Inverness for the Loch Ness Marathon. Laying out the metal framework for the 70m X 15m (230' X 50') marquee which has an internal partition to create a 25m X 15m floored area to house the expo. The remaining 45m X 15m will be used for the runner's refreshments.  

The after photo shows the 70m structure joined to a 40mx 10m structure via covered walkway. That one has two internal partitions to create separate areas for ladies and gents changing and massage area.

Bucht Park grounds must be protected and preserved for all the sporting events, so our little digger is perfect to avoid damaging the ground with the larger vehicles.



Skibo Castle, Dornoch. Carnegie Golf ProAm 2015

The finished marquee at Carnegie Golf Club. A 35mx15m marquee complete with a 5m porch and majestic red carpet runway.  Fully floored and dressed with ivory linings and starlight linings over the stage area.  There is a 10m x 15m kitchen area at the rear of the marquee hidden from view of the guests, which has a separate wooden door out to the rear of the marquee for supplies and equipment to be taken in and out discreetly.  There is also a discreet 5m x 10m annex which contained the luxury toilet unit.  Beautiful lighting effects by Limelight Event Services.



Skibo Castle, Dornoch. Golf ProAm 2015

Under construction - Installing the luxury mobile loo unit inside a marquee at Skibo Castle. The unit just fits inside a 10mx5m structure, which is then rebuilt around it.  

This structure is adjoined to the main 35mx15m marquee accessed via a discreet entrance for the guests.  The main marquee has a clear porch and long red carpet runway (pictured here covered with plastic sheeting to protect the carpet prior to the event)
