Since the summer of 2020, intimate weddings for 30 people have become very popular and a single tipi is the ideal space for them. As always, any number of the tipi's sides can be lowered or lifted to adapt to the weather forecast. If the weather was set fair then we can build the tipi with lots of sides up allowing plenty of airflow. However, if it looked cold or windy then we would build them closed down so that the party is kept cosy.
In this floor plan, the tables are laid out in what we call a 'dial' formation, fanning out around the centre of the tipi. We find this helps guests move about the tipi much more freely. Having said this, the nice thing about smaller number is you can also fit everyone on one table large table if you join some together. We will always work with you to design the ideal floor plan.
If you are looking to host a wedding of this size in autumn or winter then all you would need to add is a heater, a fire pit and depending on your chosen site, perhaps some solid flooring.

Yes, we do advise wedding and event insurance that covers ‘marquee and equipment hire’ for the period that you have the tipis. If you don’t take out insurance then our standard 5% Damage Waiver will apply. This covers you for any loss or damage worth over £500.
We typically set-up a day or two before your event and take down a day or so after, but we are flexible and will try our best to fit in around you and your venue.
We allow half a day to build an event like this. Starting nice and early and finishing up early afternoon. Obviously the further we have to travel and the more complex the build, the longer it may take.
In order to give the best possible service we like to stay within 2 hours/100miles of our base here in Wiltshire. Having said that, for the right event we will travel further.
