Tudor Courtyard Marquee Heaven – Alexandra and James

In June 2012 we had the privilege of hosting the wedding reception for Alexandra Jackson and her fiance James in the stunning Clear Span Marquee in the Tudor Courtyard.

The couple held their ceremony in All Saints Church, Fulham. The couple, the wedding party and their guests walked through the Palace Gardens to arrive at the reception. We love it when couples take full advantage of the proximity of the Palace to All Saints and embrace the wonderful gardens for a walk. It really shows all the guests getting into the spirit of the day and makes for some wonderful photo opportunities.

In our humble opinion Alexandra and her fiance captured one of the most beautiful photos in front of the Palace that we have ever seen.

The Tudor Courtyard provides one of the most beautiful backdrops for a drinks reception but with the assistance of the clear span marquee warding off the British weather it is possible for the courtyard to provide a backdrop for the entire reception. Alexandra was one of our brides to choose the clear span for her special day and what a day it was.


The marquee allows for a beautiful setting during the day followed by impressive effects in the evening. The lighting is enhanced by the summer evening sky which produces truly stunning photos. It is definitely a show stopper and a different way to utilize the Palace’s lovely space.


As well as the furnishings for your sit down dinner, the clear span can also be set up with a dance floor and space for a band or DJ. This allows you to party the night away, for as long as your guests (or you) can last with the Palace in the background. There are also a number of options which come in addition to the marquee such as heating which will ensure that your guests remain warm during the reception. The clear span is just one of the many options that Fulham Palace can offer couples on their special day, and it is certainly one of the most impressive.

It was an absolute pleasure to host the wedding reception for Alexandra and James. Overall the reception was stunning, but they definitely brought the fun factor. The Groom and his party definitely brought the fun, casual tone  and the joyous attitude of the couple completely complimented the evening image of the reception. This is one of our favourite photos of the day…
