We are all about the personal experience. Here’s what you can expect from us!
If you love the sound of what we offer, the first step is to get in touch! We'd love to know how many hats you are thinking, if you have a date or month / year in mind and your venue or land, if you have one sorted! This can be done via email directly, or our contact form on this website.
Once we receive your enquiry, we'll send over a brochure PDF with all the information on us, our tipis and what we can offer for your day. We'll also answer any questions you may have had in your initial email. Any questions that pop up from either of you as you look through the brochure, we're always an email away - so please just ask. No question is a silly one!
Once you're happy with everything and have decided you'd love to choose us for your day, we'll set you up on our system! This will give you an online login to our platform where you'll find an invoice and contract to sign to confirm your date. 20% of the tipi package itself is due to get you on our calendar, once paid you're officially booked!
Once booked in, we'll request your home address to send out our tipi wedding company welcome pack in the post. We won't tell you all now (watch out for spoilers on our social media!) but it's full of some great suppliers, general information and a few little extras to get your planning experience started!
Before the day, we'll get a site visit booked in at your venue or land. This is our opportunity to meet, measure out the tipis and discuss where you might like them on the day! This is a great opportunity to ask questions in person as we get closer to the day, too - it's sometimes a lot easier than email, so we're happy to help!
When choosing us as your tipi supplier – you’re able to make use of our awesome interactive floor planning tool to design your layout exactly how you imagined! We have a drag and drop system set up for you to chop and change however you please in the lead up to the day. Before the day, we’ll get you to send it over to us ready for set up.
6 weeks before the day an automated planning form should land in your inbox! This is to gain all the final details and confirm everything discussed so far for your plans. From addresses to how many benches you would like. We'll also ask you to submit your final floorplan at this stage, once complete! There's a form for the horse box bar, too.
1 month before your day, the full remaining balance is due. This will include the tipi package booked, plus any extra services such as our festival upgrade package, the horse box bar's minimum spend or generator hire. Once paid, we're ready to go for set up day and can't wait to see you on site soon!
If you're getting married on a Saturday, we will typically be on site setting up your tipis on the Thursday. Our team will be on site from around 8:30am. We'll ask you to be there for our arrival when measuring out, to make sure you're happy with the location of the tipis. Then, it's a full days work for us, so we'll call you once they're up so you can come and see!
As you'll have seen in your contract, we take a damage waiver before the day. Once the tipis are all set up, we'll grab a signature from you to confirm that everything booked is ready for your celebration. If everything is there when collecting, safe and sound, it will be sent back after the day!
On the day before your wedding, we won't be on site - so the place is truly yours from the moment of hire until we take them down again. This is the perfect time to go in and decorate, or for your hired stylist to make it extra special! Let us know if you need some recommendations locally.
It's finally here! You can officially marry the love of your life and get to experience the tipi magic you've been waiting for. We know you'll have the best day EVER, so please enjoy every single minute of it! If you've booked our horse box bar, one of our team will be on site throughout the event, but otherwise, we cannot wait to see the photos!
We typically take down on a Sunday for a Saturday wedding. If you have plans on the Sunday (such as camping and a BBQ, or want to use the tipis for breakfast the next day!) let us know and we will do our best to accommodate a later set up or a Monday take down. Just ask! Before we collect, everything in the tipis needs to be cleared that isn't ours, so don't forget to ask a family or friend to help with this so you don't have to on your first day as a married couple! (We forgot on ours!)
Once the tipis are down, bringing a close to your amazing weekend, we hope you will have had a wonderful experience with us here at Tipi Wedding Company. It's a pleasure to work with couples on such an important part of their lives together! After the day, we'd love a review on our social media and google page if you have a moment! If you're up for it, we're always up for blogging your wedding here on our website too - to inspire other couples for their days in the future. All that's left is to enjoy your life as a newly married couple!
