About us

At Deckerdence, we're not your typical venue.

We’re the lively heart of creativity, where celebrations come to life. We’re passionate about crafting unique moments for weddings, parties, and events that defy the ordinary. With our vintage double-deck bus and circular marquee, we’re here to turn your dreams into unforgettable realities. Join us in the pursuit of the extraordinary!

Unique Mobile Venue

In 1967, a Leyland PD2 double-deck bus, once a humble worker in the streets of Manchester, carrying people, she underwent a spectacular transformation. The lower deck became a traditional bar, while the upper deck turned into a lavish cocktail lounge. This marked the inception of Deckerdence.

What truly sets us apart is our bespoke, custom-made marquee that seamlessly attaches to the bus, creating a one-of-a-kind vintage venue.

Deckerdence is the perfect setting for weddings, parties, and events that defy convention. Nestled in the serene North Warwickshire countryside, our beautiful site can host your event. Or as a mobile venue, we’re not bound by location. We can bring Deckerdence to you, turning any space into a unique and unforgettable wedding, fabulous party or incredible event experience.

Hey there, I’m Clare I’m the one behind the clipboard in planning and on the day at Deckerdence. The imaginative force steering the magic at Deckerdence for weddings, parties, and events.

Armed with a background in marketing, live events, and a special affinity for keeping things organised (I have to admit I do love a spreadsheet - but thats good thing as I'm your go-to guru for planning perfection.

Well in truth my first event I organised was out 6th form leavers ball - first time every it hadn’t been held in the school hall - and it was in a marquee at golf - so I guess you could say I have come full circle!

Just now in a truly one of a kind spectacular marquee!
