CREATE THE PERFECT EVENT UNDER A TIPI TENT…
Tipi or “teepee” tents are incredible constructions. We promise we’re not being biased – we’ve seen how they’ve created the most unique and memorable occasions. Clothed with natural tan canvases and supported by traditional Scandinavian wooden poles, teepees create a stunning yet practical venue… wherever that may be!
AN AMAZING ALTERNATIVE TENT FOR YOUR SPECIAL EVENT…
Sailcloth tents offer an equally unique yet very different option than our tipis. These luminescent sheer top tents will literally make your event glow. Like the tipis they have traditional wooden poles, and high points within the roof. But these tents are opal in colour, a pearlescent white and are beautifully elegant.
JUST SAY “I DO” TO A UNIQUE WEDDING VENUE…
Looking for an unusual wedding venue that provides the fairy-tale atmosphere and elegance of a traditional wedding reception, set in the location of your dreams?
TIPIS LOVE TO PARTY…
Let’s build a tipi and make the party go with a sparkle! While we can’t predict the weather, our flexible Giant Hat Kåtas will ensure it won’t spoil your party! From lifting up the sides on a glorious sunny day, to letting down the sides when the rain won’t go away, the party ideas are endless, because Elite tipis easily adapt to every occasion.

I contacted Jacquie and the team at Elite Tents as I was organising my 26th birthday for 40+ people. They were tremendously professional throughout, helping me choose the interiors and extras, and helping me keep within my budget. The setup team were very efficient both putting up and taking down the tipi. Most importantly of all the Big Hat Tipi looked absolutely spectacular! I can’t emphasise enough what a game changer it was for an event which I have thrown a couple of times before. It saved us from an unexpectedly wet British summer, and once we decked it out with some professional speakers, a dj booth, fog machine and UV lights / lasers, it was like being transported into a nightclub. I have had absolutely rave reviews about how remarkable the tipi was. I will definitely be coming back in future. Thanks again! ConradConrad’s 26th Party
Elite tents were nothing but professional from start to finish. They were always on the end of the phone to answer any queries, and were lovely on our big weekend: couldn’t recommend them anymore!Georgina & James 19.5.18
The Elite team were so helpful & were always there for whatever little questions we asked along the way. The service we received before our big day was excellent. With updates along the way and plenty of opportunities to see the tipis at wedding fayres really helped with ideas and how our venue would look on the day.Fiona & Martin 8.9.19
