Florida Marquees are proud to reveal our new Celeste Vintage Marquee – the ultimate in traditional pole marquees. We have been specialising in clearspan frame marquees for over 20 years but felt the changing wedding marquee scene warranted a new vintage style marquee.
Celeste Marquees are beautifully styled to enhance the elegance of a Pole Marquee. Attractive roof sheet reinforcing, simple eave lines and bevelled wooden poles provide a stunning structure for the most prestigious functions.
Barkers Marquees say”Create a round marquee or add in middle sections to vary length. Different height King Poles topped by banner flags capture the eye.
Sourcing this marquee in the UK ensures the design and fabrics are suitable for European climate and standards. All fabrics offered are fire retardant.
The Celeste is manufactured in Surrey so we are also flying the flag for the UK! Like other Pole Marquees the Celeste requires no interior linings and relies on its manufactured features like “the splat” to give it real character.
The octagonal shaped wooden poles and posts have been oiled to give a natural vintage look and a textured PVC gives excellent protection whilst looking like a canvas. All ropes are made in a natural hemp look while the straps are hemp colour all adding to the rustic look.
Panoramic windows and a tall side height give all round views so guests can take in the surroundings. At 23 feet at its highest point the Celeste gives a light and airy feel and an imposing sight from the outside!
Our new Celeste Vintage Marquee, a modern version of the traditional pole marquee, is 12m wide and comes in 6m roof sections. At over 23 feet tall the wooden poles hold a vast sail cloth like roof and the tension straps allow the side poles to be 10 feet apart.
The panoramic windows give an all round view and allow light to flood in.
Round Ends and Panoramic Windows
Two round ends give the Celeste so much character and charm.
The two ends can be put together with a single pole to create a circular marquee or middle roof sections added to form 18m, 24m,30m or 36m long marquees.
The Celeste really lends itself to festoon lighting which also fits in with the vintage theme. Festoon lighting can be strung between the main poles and from the poles down to the marquee walls.
Pealights or fairy lights are also very effective giving a lovely warm glow to proceedings without being too bright.
Of course candles, hurricane lamps and tea lights will complement our lighting.
Paper Lanterns – These can replace Chandeliers for a more informal look.
NEW for 2018 – The Edison Chandelier
With its vintage edison style bulbs on rope cable the Edison Chandelier gives you a rustic yet industrial option for the Celeste Marquee.
The steel ring that the bulbs hang from can be decorated or just left bare. The lights are on dimmers so the perfect ambiance can be achieved.
Festoon lights running from the floor, up the hip end, across the roof and back down again frame the shape of the Celeste in lights. The warm glow of the interior lighting shines out through the panoramic windows.
Shepherds crooks with festoons can be used to form a walkway to the marquee or an outside seating space.
In keeping with tradition and the vintage theme the Celeste comes with a woven coir style matting. Or if you would prefer a solid wooden floor with a cord carpet you can choose from our range of colours.
There is a choice of light oak or mahogany parquet dance floor and stages are also available.
Wooden phinials on each side pole finish off the vintage feel and flags flying from each king pole say “look at me”
We also offer a large range of vintage / rustic furniture and accessories to complement the Celeste Marquee.
