Asian Wedding decor in the Grand Marquee

The Grand Marquee

This versatile venue has a reception area for arrival drinks and greeting guests, plus plenty of space for dining and evening celebrations. We can accommodate up to 650 guests in the main body of the marquee, however we have welcomed over 1000 guests with the addition of a reception marquee in the Gardens.

The Grand Marquee is a permanent structure in the grounds of Wynyard Hall. Open all year round and surrounded by acres of stunning parkland and structured Gardens, it is without doubt one of the North’s best Asian Wedding Venues.

Stunning Backdrop

The Gardens, though which your guests enter The Grand Marquee, provide a stunning backdrop for Wedding Photography!

Your guests will enter through the Bell Tower and walk through the the Walled Garden, which is brimming with over 3000 David Austen Roses. Peak times are July – August, though the roses often make an early appearance in May and have been know to still be in bloom late-September / early-October! You will also have exclusive use of the Marquee Garden on the day of your wedding, which is ideal for reception drinks (weather permitting).
