Knowing Your Options For Heating Your Outdoor Wedding Reception

More and more couples are choosing to take their special day outdoors, and it’s easy to see why.

The natural surroundings of the great outdoors can make a beautiful romantic setting, especially if the weather decides to play along.

However, an outdoor wedding provides a new set of logistical problems, one of which is how to keep everyone warm once the sun goes down.  

That’s where we here at Event Heat come into play, and we have a great range of heaters to keep your guests comfortable and warm throughout the night.

Solum Pyramid Heaters

These very popular heaters are the perfect combination of style and function, making them perfect for a wedding reception.

On the functional side of things, they produce a powerful flame encased in a real quartz tube (quartz is safer and more durable than glass).

They’re also adjustable so you can have anywhere from 5kW to 13kW of heat output.

As for the aesthetics, the heaters come in a classy and contemporary pyramid, made from heavy duty stainless steel, so they’re sure to fit right in with the rest of your decorations and look great on a decking or patio.

Make sure that you space these heaters out evenly between tables so that your guests aren’t too warm or too cold and that you get the most out of them.

While these heaters certainly are attractive to look at, don’t make your choice based purely on aesthetics. 

A more heavy-duty heater may not be as nice to look at, but it can easily be kept out of view so that no guests will see it.

Indirect Diesel Heaters

If you need to heat up a whole marquee, you might be best opting for an indirect diesel heater.

These heaters provide large volumes of clean, fume free warm air and work well in areas with limited ventilation (such as a marquee).

On the technical side of things, they come with an automatic built-in oil burner, an AISI 420 stainless steel combustion chamber and electronic flame control.

They can also be connected to a thermostat or timer to give you ultimate control over the temperature and have a 1.5m power cord so they can be safely kept outside of the marquee and well away from the view of the guests.

They also allow all of the fumes and combustible products to be vented away from the heated area to avoid any unpleasant and dangerous odours.

Electric Heaters

These heaters are great because they don’t produce any harmful emissions and don’t require ventilation, meaning they can be used almost anywhere and are ductable up to 6m long.

They’re our most safe and environmentally friendly heaters as well as being extremely quiet.

They also have a built-in thermostat and selector switch so that you have ultimate control of the level of heat.

What size heater do I need?

Heaters can vary in size, but it really depends on the size of the area or marquee that you’re needing to heat.

Feel free to get in touch with one of our team to let us know your requirement and we’ll do our best to help find what size of heater will be right for you.

Many couples are often put off outdoor weddings because of the (not so) great British weather, but you don’t have to be with our range of heat solutions!
