The hill top marquee site has spectacular views out to sea towards Burgh Island and beyond - a spectacular back drop to your wedding day. - The Bantham Bash field is large and open with a level area where the marquee is situated.

Jon and the team at Hatch are amazing
Jon and the team at Hatch are amazing. They provided the marque for our wedding in June 2021. From the beginning of the process they were professional and easy to deal with. They were accommodating to all of our changes and delays as a result of COVID. The marquee they provided was perfect and made a great venue for our wedding. The marquee itself and all of the extras were of really high quality. We loved being able to make the space unique to us with thousands of fairy lights, the rustic tables and bar. Would highly recommend for any event!

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone
Thank you so much for all your hard work arranging and erecting the marquee for our wedding. The marquee was beautiful once up and decorated and we can not fault your service. All the staff we met wer efficient and friendly and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone else looking for a marquee wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for the guys on the day, who put it up and we are so grateful that they put up our bunting for us too!

'It literally ROCKED'
Just a note to say thank you so much for the amazing marquee you did for us. We had so many compliments on how it was and the layout worked the best; keeping the dance floor and bar together certainly made for the most amazing evening party - it literally ROCKED! You and your team are so professional, thank you once again.

Press & Awards

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

I don't think we have an absolute favourite as they are all so unique and special. Marquees are great as you can really make it your own. We had one wedding where the groom, family and friends were all great cricket fans so they had a match on the site in the afternoon - it looked a lot of fun!

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

Enjoy the planning. You only get to do this once, so remember to have some fun.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

There have been plenty but we always love it when a bride and groom bring a bit of themselves to their day. Whether that is a surfboard table plan, a table decoration made from copper pipe (groom was a plumber!), or bicycle wheels suspended from the marquee roof which had been dressed with floristry (they looked amazing!). We love it all!
