Amazing experience!

I cannot thank Jodie and her team enough for our spectacular triple hat tipi wedding venue.
From start to finish - initial contact through to the on site team - nothing was too much trouble.
My initial booking was so easy and every question was answered. Beth helped to plan our day and I knew exactly what to expect from Sami Tipi Team.
Craig was install/take down and every single one of the team with him were friendly and professional - even when the weather was against them when taking down.
If you’re considering a tipi company then you will not regret using Sami Tipi - and you get some lovely personal touches along the way as a Sami Tipi couple!
Thanks Jodie, Beth, Craig and all of the team!

We are so glad we picked you

Just wanted to send you a big thanks for all yours and Craigs help with our wedding.

I wouldn't have a hesitation in recommending you

Can I just say a HUGE thank you. The Tipis looked amazing - and having the two worked an absolute treat. Unfortunately I was so wrapped up with the party that I didn't take photos, but the tents in the gardens with all the fairy lights etc looked spectacular. Everyone kept commenting about how fantastic everything looked.

Craig and 'the lads' were amazing - really organised, friendly and efficient. Please thank them again for me.

I can honestly say that all my dealings with Sami Tipi - from booking to the end event and break down - were first class, and I wouldn't have a hesitation in recommending you to anyone.

With kind regards and thanks,

The tipis themselves were stunning

It would be impossible to give Jodie, Craig, and the Sami Tipi team anything less than a five-star review for making our wedding day so magical (and almost entirely stress-free!). The tipis themselves were stunning - as were all of the finishing touches - and the care, attention, and advice from Jodie during our planning meetings was invaluable. Thank you all so much. Our only complaint? That we can't do it all over again!

Thank you doesn't cover it!

To Jodie, Craig and the Team,

Thank you doesn't cover it! You made our perfect day possible and for that we will forever be grateful!

We have memories and photos to cherish for the rest of our lives and tipis will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Thank you for being so kind and thorough throughout our journey - we couldn't have done it without you!

Lots of love

We are so happy that we found Sami Tipi

We are so happy that we found Sami Tipi when we started planning our wedding. From start to finish they were totally amazing. Jodie was on hand whenever we needed and made the whole progress of planning a wedding a lot less stressful than we initially thought, especially as we lived abroad for most of the planning. We were able to have video calls with Jodie along the way which was such a great help, she is super organised and we came away from each call feeling less anxious and more excited for our day. Even though they must be planning so many weddings at once you really felt like they cared and wanted give you the best.

The tipis themselves are stunning as is all the furniture and extra bits we hired from from Sami Tipi, they have thought of everything, which is exactly what you want when planning your wedding!

We hired our caterers, bar service, florist, celebrant and props hire all through Sami Tipis recommendations, who were all amazing too and it was great to know that we had hired people who had worked with Jodie and the team before, this took away the stress of hoping everything ran smoothly on the day.

We highly recommend Sami Tipi if you are looking to have an outdoor wedding, they really did so much to help us have the prefect day.

They truly made it the best day for us and we are so grateful!

Everyone was blown away

Hi Jodie,

Thanks ever so much for your kind words. The day was absolutely fantastic and everyone was blown away by how fantastic the tipi looked. A massive thank-you to the team for putting the tipi up on such a tricky day weather-wise and I'm sure the rain on Sunday was a refreshing change when they came to take it down again.

I'll send some more detailed feedback / thanks once we're back from honeymoon but wanted to express our gratitude before we went.

All the best,

Amy & Rich

We cannot thank you guys enough ...

"To Sami Tipi

We cannot thank you guys enough for providing us with such a magical and memorable wedding reception venue. From the first Sami Tipi Open event we knew we wanted a tipi for our special day.

We didn’t realise at the time but choosing Sami Tipi was one of the best wedding choices we could have made. You guys are so much more than a marque provider. We have felt thoroughly supported and well looked after throughout the entire process. It’s all down to you guys genuinely caring and taking the time to support us with bringing everything together and putting any worries at ease no matter how small they maybe. Because of this our wedding reception had such an incredible atmosphere and was literally the best day of our lives!

Lots of love Claire & Dan aka Mr & Mrs Bird"
