  • "Truely splendid!"
    on 16 December 2016

    Kate and David were very accommodating from start to finish. They helped us plan the most incredible day (some people say best day ever!) and a really unique experience for our guests. My husband and I live in another country so communication via email was fantastic and meetings were flexible to suit us and this really put me at ease during the whole planning process. If you are bit like ourselves and you want something a bit different then I would highly recommend Special Event Tipis! If I could I would get married again just so we can be King and Queen of the Tipi again!

  • "Highly Recommend"
    Kate on 11 November 2016

    We used Special Event Tipis for our wedding in May of this year set up in the field behind the beautiful Blencowe Hall in Greystoke. Dave and Kate and the team were great and helped ensure all the arrangements ran smoothly. The tipis looked great - we were so pleased how it all came together. We would highly recommend anyone interested in having a different kind of wedding with a tipi wedding to reach out to the team at Special Event Tipis

Frequently Asked Questions

How many Tipis will I need for my Special Event?

As a general rule, we recommend 50-60 seated guests per Giant Hat Tipi to allow for an open space for a dance floor and any other extras you may wish to include such as fire pits. By linking a number of structures together we can create much larger spaces for bigger events! Take a peek at our Floor Plan Gallery for guest capacities and ideas on how best to optimise the space inside the Tipis.

What areas do you cover?

With bases in both Cumbria and Northumberland, we have excellent access to Cumbria, the Lake District, Southern Scotland, Northumbria, North Yorkshire and Lancashire and have the facilities to extend our services further afield.

How far in advance should I contact you?

Dates do book up quite far in advance, so it is best to get in touch as early as possible to ensure your date is still available with us. We would hate for you to miss out on having our Tipis for your Special Event!

What are the forms of payment?

We can accept Bank Transfers and cheques
