WE RECOMMEND...

You’ve ticked teepee hire off your list, but what about the venue and wedding suppliers? Whether you’re a bride-to-be or party planner, it’s hard to know where to look and who to trust. Tipis will go up anywhere – as long as it’s on grass and there’s enough space. In our 7 years of providing tipis we have worked at hundreds of different venues but we have over 50 across the Midlands that we work with regularly and we are always adding to that list. You may have somewhere for your tipis but if you don’t here are the ways you could find somewhere…

Finding your own venue

Finding your own venue

Internet searches on sites like Find A Field or Hitched can be a great place to start. Local sports clubs and village halls will often hire out their land to you at a reasonable price and campsites are also a good idea as they often come with some of the facilities included.
Alternatively you could give us a call at the office and see whether any of our venues suit your plans. In our opinion outdoor wedding venues can be divided into three categories, so have a think what would suit you best and then let us know and we will help you on your search...

Farms and Fields…

Farms and Fields…

Farmland and fields are easy to hire and can work out a cost effective place to hold your tipi event. There are many farms that already hire out their land regularly, but if you find a local farmer willing to rent the land to you, you may need to get in touch with the council to arrange a temporary events license. (That's really easy to do). When you hire land it's fabulous because you have a completely blank canvas, however do bear in mind you may also need a generator and luxury toilets. You'll be pleased to know we have some excellent sub-contractors we work with  so will be able to help you with that too if you like.

Venues with accomodation…

Venues with accomodation…

We have set up tipis in the gardens of some beautiful houses and holiday homes. Many of them have bedrooms or whole cottages where you and some of your guests can stay. Some will also have facilities such as power or toilets and may even offer to coordinate or run your bar for the event. These venues are usually slightly more expensive than having a field but do offer added luxury which suits some people.

Venues with a wedding license…

Venues with a wedding license…

In truth there still are not many venues where you can hold an outdoor wedding that also has a wedding license, however some stately homes do offer this option. There are some absolutely stunning places across the Midlands including Keddleston Hall, Sandon Hall among others. The alternative is to get married at a register office prior to your tipi reception and hold a wedding ceremony outdoors or even inside the tipis. Our office staff are keen to help you with this option too, either finding a venue that can offer the license or creating a wet weather plan for an outside ceremony if that is the best option for you.

In addition to our core Bespoke Tipi Hire service we also offer a completely Done for You service which means you literally don't have to think about anything. We have four venues where we offer this wedding package and we quote for the whole package: Venue (including power and toilets), Tipis and Catering. We are also happy to pass you the details of these venues along with a bespoke tipi quote. DFY packages often suit those clients who live abroad or away from the Midlands area but there are others who also like the idea of everything being done for them. You can find more information and some photos of our Done for You venues in our Weddings brochure.
