Full Description
Each one of our structures is unique to us and is sourced directly from our master marquee maker: a supplier of the top riads in and around Marrakech. We select only the most opulent fabrics available to line our tents. Our aim is for each structure to exude a sense of the exotic and transport our clients into another world. With years of prior experience working on the festival scene we know what is needed not only to create a stunning space that will wow your guests, but we also provide the know-how to engineer a fabulous party! We also specialise in Shisha Lounges and provide everything required to make these look truly amazing; from Moroccan lanterns, low tables, rugs and beanbags through to traditional Hookah pipes and a wide range of flavoured molasses tobacco, as well as a fully trained team to serve guests.

Luke and his team were amazing...!
“When we first came across Fancy Tentacles, after what felt like months of trailing the internet looking for the perfect venue, we couldn’t believe our luck that they were still available. Luke and his team were amazing, always going the extra mile. What makes them different is they actually care, a business which prides itself and enjoys nothing more than a successful event, and a happy customer. They took the stress away from the entire experience and were always there to help. If there’s one thing guest our wedding guests will always remember it will probably be the beautiful marquees - they set the scene for what was a truly spectacular wedding - one we will always remember. Thank you Fancy Tentacles.”

It was a pleasure to work with Luke & the guys...
“It was a pleasure to work with Luke and the guys at Fancy Tentacles. The tent looked amazing and was just what we were after, they were flexible with erection dates and delivered everything they promised exactly as discussed. If you are looking for something “a bit different” we can’t recommend Fancy Tentacles highly enough!”

What about your business are you most proud of?

We take great pride in every wedding that we're a part of and in continuing to pursue excellence in what we do. The proudest moment is always seeing people enjoying a special day or night that you have pulled together and created for them.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Get to know who you are working with before making decisions. Building a good relationship with a supplier you are confident with and can trust will make your wedding planning so much less stressful. As a supplier we want to be confident that we are reading off the same page as our clients, for us the key to a successful day is getting to know each couple personally in advance.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

The groom and the best man's ties being made from the same fabric as the dresses the bride and grooms young daughters were wearing.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After initial emails it is always good to meet the couple where possible or to have a good chat on the phone about their plans. We can then discuss options and see what is the best way for us to help them to realise their dreams!

How do you create an ambiance in a marquee?

All of our Moroccan tents feature stunning linings which add an instant ambience. Add hanging lanterns and well placed lighting and decor for something truly special!

What is your favourite design of marquee and why?

We love our stylish Moroccan Caidals. They combine the best elements of traditional marquee making with the flair and sense of the exotic that emanates from Marrakech where they're made.
