My daughter and her new husband were recently married at Middleton Hall and had the reception in a tipi provided by Elite tents. It had been postponed and downsized dramatically. They had decided that they wanted to be married so we proceeded with 15 of us.

However after being anxious about how it would all go I have to say it was the most perfect day. No one felt stressed, we were all relaxed and just enjoyed the day. The tipi was perfect thanks to Jacquie who planned how it would look for us. It was intimate, cosy and full of sparkle thanks to all the fairy lights and beautiful chandelier.

An Intimate, Covid Secure Wedding – 2020

The service from Elite Tents was totally professional from the word go. It put my mind at ease that I had picked the right company to provide a Tipi for the family celebration. The Tipi looked brand new, and the guys arrived exactly at the time stated to assemble and dissemble. A fabulous time was had by all. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

A Special 18th Tipi Party
OMG. Elite Tents absolutely delivered. Worth every penny. Easy to deal with. Totally reliable. My guests absolutely loved the Tipi as did I. Even down to putting the main lights and party lights on different circuits so I could switch switch to night (dance) mode. Book one of their Tipi’s. You’ll be pleased you did!

Kiran’s Tipi Party 08/12/2019

I just wanted to let you know that despite the best efforts of the apocalyptic rain, Saturday night was completely magical!! It all went without a hitch and everyone was in total awe of the Tipi. It’s amazing how people don’t mind wearing wellies with their glad rags if there are fairy lights and rain deer skins involved. I have to pass on my thanks to John and his team on Thursday. They worked extraordinarily hard in the most vile of conditions and stayed cheery throughout. They are a total asset to your company! Thanks for all your help throughout. I appreciate it has not been the easiest, due to the torrential rain and bad weather but determination got us there and it was worth it. So thank you. I shall absolutely recommend you to anyone else who needs a Tipi in the future. Thanks you so much once again and Merry Christmas!!

Stella’s Winter Christmas Tipi Party 21.12.19

Just wanted to say a massive thanks for everything leading up to the wedding and for the tipi itself. It was the highlight of the wedding and looked incredible. Your team were super efficient and very helpful during set up. I would recommend yourselves to everyone!

Abigail & Tom 14.5.16

Thank you so much for everything over the last few months! We came to a few of your open days and everyone was really friendly and took the time to go through everything with us, even helping me with my nightmare of a seating plan which worked out great in the end! The guys who set up did a fab job, we were really pleased with how everything looked and how quickly they got it all up! Most of our friends didn’t have a clue what to expect when I put we were having a Tipi wedding, they thought we’d have a wig wam in the middle of a field but their faces on the day said it all! So many people commented on how amazing everything looked and it was the best wedding they’d ever been to – made all the hard work worthwhile!! 🙂

Sorcha’s Day at The Secret Garden 8.7.16

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! Conrad

Conrad’s 26th Party

We would like to say a massive thank you to all the team at Elite tents. We had our tipi wedding in April 2018 and it was absolutely magical. The service we received from start to finish was just outstanding and they did everything to make our day so perfect. I always thought it would be difficult booking this sort of wedding but after just querying about it and getting a brochure we had so much information and was so happy to book with them. They helped us find land, our wedding car and recommended caterers to us which we used and were fantastic. We had so many compliments of how beautiful it was and are so happy with how it all turned out. We wish we could do it all over again!! We definitely recommend using Elite tents for any events – you would not be disappointed

Laura and Jamie 21.4.18

The communication from start to finish was impeccable. I was an overseas bride and trying to organise conversations with the time differences was very easy with such an understanding team. Sophie who made our floorplans gave me a wet weather floorplan out of her own back without me even thinking i might need one. Their attentiveness was incredible. Thank you to the boys who put up the tents in such horrific wet weather conditions but with smiles on their faces and no moaning. Then again returning onto site after the wedding to dismantle it and asking how it all went and really taking interest in our lives as a newly wed. Thank you for making my dream wedding come true. If anyone is unsure of which tipi company to use, please dont even look around. Give them an email and make this happen! Im the happiest bride ever xxx

Tiffany & Ben 26.5.18

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

We chose Elite tents for our wedding in June because on initial contact they were the most helpful. They understood what we wanted and offer exactly what we were after. During our planning they kept in touch and made sure we had all the information we needed. Close to the event they contacted us without having to be chased and liaised with the venue. On the day they arrived on time, and got everything done so efficiently.
The tipis were beautiful and made the whole day magical. Everyone said how lovely it was. If you are thinking of a tipi, I would recommend it and definitely Elite tents.

Kate and Martin 2.6.18

Elite tents provided us with a 5* wedding venue that we and our guests will never forget. As well as the tipi impressing, the service from Jacquie, Sophie, Richard and the rest of the team was outstanding. They were reliable and informative and kept in touch throughout the whole of our wedding planning process. They made everything easy, even helped with sourcing other suppliers and were a delight to work with. Thanks so much to the whole team, would definitely recommend to anyone!

Abbey & Mike 9.6.18

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

Elite Tents provided us with an excellent service for our Tipi wedding reception. They were always very efficient when answering any queries and helped us out brilliantly.

Magical…  The tipi itself was perfect & the guests could not believe it. The team were so friendly and helpful. – great communication, caring and understanding. Would 100% recommend to anybody.


Emily & Tom 19.8.18

The Elite team was so wonderful when we met them at the open day that we didn’t bother looking at any other companies. The whole team have just been soo supportive through the whole process of our wedding planning and have always been helpful whenever we have had any queries.

Sarah & Daniel 30.6.18

Thank you so much to all the team at Elite Tents. You made our wedding magical and so many of our guests commented on the incredible atmosphere and beauty your tipis created! Your service was faultless, would highly recommend. Thank you!

Kelly and Will 9.6.18

Can I just say how fantastic you all have been in the run up to the wedding. Your communication, professionalism and friendly approach made the planning of the day very easy for us. We had a superb experience working with you all and will be making sure we recommend you to anyone and everyone!

Megan & Chris 7.4.18

Even as an event manager myself I found that I needed to sound an idea to the team once in a while and they were always really supportive in solving a problem with me. From our first meeting with Elite to the close down day of our wedding we couldn’t have been happier with the service the team provided. They were always so friendly and helpful and made the planning process that much easier.

Laura & Sam 23.7.16

Had a tipi wedding through Elite in September 2018. Great company; easy going but professional. Good communication throughout, helpful staff full of useful advice to make the day run smoothly. Will always recommend!

Fern and Jordan 2018

The biggest thank you to Jacquie and the team for making our wedding day so magical and unforgettable. The tipis really were beautiful and the team couldn’t have been more supportive throughout. The team putting up the tipis were lightning fast and a brilliant group of guys.

Lizzie & Tom 29.7.17

I can’t thank Elite Tents enough. From the moment Jacquie responded to my initial enquiry I knew that I had found the perfect company to supply the tipi for my wedding. Elite Tents don’t just supply you with a tipi, they help co-ordinate the whole day, advise on venues and put you in touch with suppliers.

Aimee & Jon 7.5.16

Everyone fell in love with the tipis and they created the most amazing atmosphere for our day. We would never have got the day we wanted with an indoor venue and a marquee would have just been boring!

Ashley & Matt 16.8.14

Thank you so much for all you hard work with the incredible tipis for our wedding. They looked absolutely amazing and made the perfect setting for our reception. Couldn’t recommend Elite Tents highly enough – absolutely brilliant.

Jo & Paul 14.9.13

The whole process of hiring the Tipis, from start to finish was excellent. From the girls in the office to the crew on the day everyone was professional, courteous and above all helpful. We look forward to working with Elite Tents in the future

Lisa Charlton Events Coordinator at Fruition 10.7.13

We want to say a massive thank you to Jacquie, Richard and all of the team for being so fantastic. Aside from the usual things like being professional and helpful you guys really went the extra mile to make sure everything for our day went well.

Carly & Patrick 4.8.12

All the team at Elite Tents were so friendly and professional in everything from the initial communication right through to morning after the wedding when the tents were taken down. Jacquie dealt with all our queries so quickly and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. She was able to point out and advise us on everything to make the venue perfect for our special day!
