Luxury Wedding at Longleat House, Warminster
Matthew Oliver Weddings contacted Danco to provide a luxury wedding marquee at Longleat House, with the design brief stating ‘classic and unique’. This design was all about the purity of a timeless white back drop.
Following an initial ideas brainstorm, Danco designed the structure in 3D on our sketch program to give Matthew’s international clients a full visual of their luxury wedding marquee, whilst they started their planning process in Hong Kong! Danco pride ourselves on providing excellent service to every client and this additional service really helped to bring their ideas to life.
The Elizabethan stately home was an incredible back drop, although not without its challenges, and we had to plan the install meticulously to tackle the historic stone paving, heavily sloping ground and safe management of the general public.
The finalised plan included a transparent PVC radial end with solid window panels and bi-fold doors that opened out on to a decking platform for un-interrupted views across the lake and Longleat House.
The chosen build location had a considerable slope down towards the lake, we first had to install our suspended flooring to cope with the 1.2m variation. This was then skirted to hide the jacking system and painted white of course. Thankfully we have a talented in-house carpenter that also tackled the 5m wide entrance steps.
We even hand-carried our Chinese Hat structures over their historic stone paving to the rear of the Orangery, for a post ceremony drinks reception.
The dance floor had a clear roof panel above it and on the gable end, with mesh sections that encouraged air flow throughout the structure on what was set to be one of the hottest days of the year.
We organised whisper quiet air ventilation units, crisp white floor overlay and a luxury toilet unit as well. The final touches included exquisite furniture, a floral ceiling and stunning table displays which were organised by Crescent Moon and Matthew Oliver Weddings of course.
“Danco” and “Quality” go hand in hand. We were proud to provide such a beautiful structure to our client, and we were delighted that the event ran so smoothly.
