It all started for Jenna Ackerley, founder of Suffolk based Events Under Canvas, at her cousin’s wedding back in 2013….Read more on EADT website.
We have recently worked with the National Wedding Show providing our tipis for their Secret Garden VIP lounge at their London shows. With the advent of Pinterest, the rise of the blog and the prevalence of inspirational instagrammers, it is no wonder that an increasing number of couples are choosing to shun more traditional set-ups in favour of something a little different on their big day.
If you ask us, there really are no other ‘venues’ as visually striking and as versatile as those created by our beautiful range of tipis. Ok, maybe we are a little biased (we’ve been passionate about them since we first laid eyes on one back in 2012) but we really believe that these novel Nordic structures are a brilliant addition to any wedding. From linked giant hats to our lovely little Nimbus, they’re sure to deliver the wow factor.
Attempting a do like this can seem like a daunting prospect but it needn’t be stressful! We’re here to offer some handy hints and tips about how you can host an epic tipi wedding…
Ok, so you’ve fallen in love with the tipi idea (let’s face it, why wouldn’t you?) and you’ve got a site in mind. The first thing to do is give some thought to how many guests you would like to share your day with, as well as considering what else you might want to house under canvas – a bar, band, catering or even a selfie station, for example.
We can then offer some advice as to the best number of giant hats and any other structures that might work for you. Think cosy Kung for a comfy chill out space or the quirky Nimbus for a unique outdoor bar. After that, they’ll come and visit the site you’ve chosen to measure up, make sure it’s going to suit your needs and give you an indication as to where you might want to put other essential services, like a generator and toilets.
