Wedding marquees in stunning Cornwall

In this issue of Community Update, we are delighted to select Absolute Canvas with our Commitment to Excellence Award.

There’s something enchanting about a marquee wedding, isn’t there?  Acting as a blank canvas, you can add stunning décor like Chinese lanterns or seasonal floristry.

There are many advantages to marquee hire, you can choose your venue- maybe near the beach where your partner proposed to you or a favourite wildflower meadow, overlooking deciduous forest views? 

Absolute Canvas is the leading marquee hire company and supplier to weddings across Cornwall and part of Devon. Known for its rugged coastline, sandy beaches and quaint fishing villages, Cornwall is a top wedding destination. Thanks to the Gulf Stream effect, Cornwall can claim the sunniest climate in the UK, with some of the longest sunlight hours.

Even the recent, unexpected wrath of Storm Antoni didn’t deter Absolute Canvas as this wedding couple testified,

“We had the privilege of working with Absolute Canvas for our recent wedding, and can’t express how thrilled I am with the exceptional service they provided. The marquee survived 50+ mile an hour winds on a cliff field. So, if you’re like me and worried about the weather, please don’t! These marquees are not only beautiful but sturdy!”

Absolute Canvas provides traditional and clear span marquees, with a bespoke marquee design upon request. Both the traditional and clear span marquees can accommodate between 40- 400 guests. The traditional designs are made in-house by co-owner Nick Seamark. The clear span is made from PVC, made and repaired by General Manger Craig Penellum. The Cornwall-based company provides all the tables and chairs, dance area, fully stocked bar, LED lighting – powered by state-of-the-art Ultra Silent generators. 

We chatted with Director Tonya Finch to find out more,

“We have never cancelled a booking- our marquees are robust and can withstand everything from Strom Antoni to wind, rain and snow. We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service- from initial enquiry to post-wedding clear-up. 

Every year, we challenge ourselves to design and manufacture a new marquee, adding to the already-robust design. 

Here in Cornwall, the picturesque landscape is already built-in- we just enhance it by pitching our marquees to capitalise on the stunning, panoramic views. It’s amazing- Cornwall is known for its beauty all over the world and we regularly have international wedding couples! It’s lovely when you have repeat custom across the generations and hear all the lovely stories of why a wedding venue is special to them. 

We regularly have over 120 wedding bookings over the year, throughout the seasons and love all weddings: from Indian weddings, rustic country, to vow renewals.”
