So Much More Than The Usual Marquee
Tipi Hire with Special Event Tipis
Special Event Tipis was established in 2011 after our own tipi wedding. After seven years together, I proposed to my wife Kate at the top of Machu Picchu whilst we were back packing around South America.
The tipis were the perfect solution and provided us with the quirky, fun and unique wedding venue that we wanted. It truly was the best day of our lives and we have now helped over 400 clients plan their perfect Special Event, whether it be a wedding, festival style party or corporate event.
With bases in both Cumbria and Newcastle, we are perfectly situated to assist with tipi hire across the Lake District, Cumbria, Northumberland, Lancashire, North Yorkshire and Scotland.
As our Tipi business has grown it has very much became a family affair and alongside our dog Beatrice, our children George and Ted are very much part of the team!
We are very lucky to have long standing crew chiefs and crew members who are not only experienced in tipi installation but have a clear understanding of what is needed to ensure a successful event.
We also have Amy, our full-time wedding and event coordinator in the office throughout the year. She loves all the detail and will happily chat through and help you with your tipi hire plans whenever possible.
We absolutely pride ourselves on providing excellent levels of customer service. We regularly organise Skype calls, create mood boards and chat to clients on a friendly and informal level – we are genuinely interested in your event plans and love new ideas!
Here at Special Event Tipis, we really do love our jobs! Working in the events industry is a privilege and we never forget that we are playing a vital part in every single Special Event we are part of!
What can I say about Special Event Tipis?! From the very first enquiry, Kate, Dave and Amy have been fantastic. When I first started researching Tipi companies for our Autumnal wedding, Special Event Tipis stood out from the rest! They couldn't do enough for you, every query was answered; the site visit was excellent and Dave gave us so many suggestions as to what we could do with space we hired. Kate and Amy answered my never ending list of questions and made changes to our layout. It is so lovely when they are just as excited as you seeing everything go together after all the months of planning and hard work. Special Events aren't just a company who you can hire a tipi from, they offer personal and individual service. They really made our wedding day and everyone commented on how amazing it was- I can't recommend them enough. Thank you so much, Mr and Mrs Murphy
From the moment I walked into Special Event Tipis Open Day way back 18 months ago, I fell in love with these structures. They were everything I had been looking for they fitted my venue and me to the ground.
From that moment on Kate, Dave and Amy have held my hand through the wedding planning process up to my big day. They were at the end of an email, phone, or even in person in Tescos (!) to answer any question!
So professional and helpful from start to finish, I can not recommend these guys highly enough.
Thank you again Special Event Tipis for making my day so much more than I could ever have hoped for.
Our whole experience with Special Event Tipis was totally amazing, so straight forward and stress free! Amy was so lovely and helpful from when we first met her at the Open Day right through to the big day.
The installation of the tipi was brilliant, the team had to battle some wild Lake District weather, but everything was super! Dave was really helpful and we loved Beatrice the Boxer :)
What makes a huge difference when planning a Wedding is the suppliers you choose, they really can make or break it! I can honestly say Special Event Tipis didn't disappoint and I'd recommend to anyone!
Thanks to Special Event Tipis, our wedding was so much more than we had dreamed it could be. The tipi looked amazing, and was the perfect setting for our guests to party the night away. Thanks to the hard work and imagination of the team at Special Event Tipis, we were able to have our dream wedding in a stunning location surrounded by our loved ones. Amy, David and the team went above and beyond to ensure our wedding was everything we dreamed of. They provided the best advice and help throughout the process, from recommending suppliers, to planning the venue, through to setting up and packing down. We can't recommend Special Event Tipis enough for all the help, support, and ideas shared along the way! Could not have asked for more! Thank you!
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did for us, you were absolutely brilliant & it was a pleasure to deal with you. The tipis looked amazing on the day & we were over the moon with them. I can’t thank you & the guys enough.
