  • Dave, Kate and The Special Event Tipis Team were helpful, professional and attentive from our very first enquiry, right through to our special day. They supported us with any changes we wanted to make or questions we had and communicated effectively with us and the rest of our suppliers so that we were worry free on our wedding day. They are clearly very passionate about their business and care about their customers experience, which for us was one that we and our friends & family will treasure for the rest of our lives. Thank you x

  • A truly excellent company - they have a clear passion for their work which came across in all of our dealings with Dave, Kate, Amy and the whole team. From emails, to phone calls and an efficient and confident site visit, we cannot fault their brilliant service. We loved the tipis, they complimented our wedding perfectly and Special Events made having them so easy, nothing was too much trouble for them and they always made us feel like a priority. Watching them put up the Tipis was amazing! Thank you for making our wedding extra special.
