Our Story

LoveTipis was founded in 2015 after falling in love with the elegant Nordic tipis in Northern Sweden. We wanted to share the magic and beauty they can bring to any special occasion, so we built this company named for exactly how we feel!

“The dust has finally settled at Catfest 2023 and I just wanted to
say a huge thank you to you and all the guys for such brilliant hard work and creating
the most brilliant festival space for us. So many people commented on how great it
all was. We raised over £74,000 for Action Against Cancer. Here’s to working
together again in 2024! All the best and thanks again”

Julian
Catfest, 2023

“Thank you, LoveTipis, from the bottom of our hearts for the excellent service we've received from you for M&W's wedding. From first contact right through to the end, you have been amazing. You have been quick to respond to questions, contribute ideas (and tell us what we needed to know), and help with other providers such as generators, toilets, and chiller vans. Your tables, benches, chairs etc were all brilliant too.

I can't tell you how many people told us on Saturday how 'cool' the tipis were, and how lovely they looked in our setting. The dance floor stood up to the test of being full all night (even though I'd order a bigger one next time!) and we had everything we needed from you to make the wedding a huge success. I have 2 highlights: watching the canvas going up was phenomenal, but the twinkly fairy lights in the evening were literally breath taking.”

Julian Catfest, 2023

“Love Tipi's were truly exceptional in helping us achieve the festival wedding we'd waited so long to have!! We could not recommend them more – they were not only professional, but friendly, kind and very patient with us with last minute additions. The set up and take down teams were fantastic and the communication during the build up was brilliant. Wish we could give them more than 5 stars!”

Stephanie Lammers-Rice Festival Wedding, 2022

“We honestly cannot find the words to express how beautiful our wedding day was thanks to the team at LoveTipis. The communication beforehand was thorough and timely, and the team were so patient with our many and frequent changes to table types, numbers, or layouts! Nothing was ever too much trouble. On the build day, the team were so professional and friendly – it really was incredible to watch them construct the tipis and bring our plans to life in one day. As for the tipis themselves, they are just spectacular. All our guests commented on how gorgeous the setup was and how spacious it felt, despite the fact we had nearly 140 guests! If you are considering using LoveTipis for an event, just go for it. You absolutely won’t regret it.”

Emily Davitt Wedding, 2022

“LoveTipis were amazing for our wedding. They were responsive in the months leading up to our wedding and on the day just got on with it and set up exactly how we had agreed. Not only were the tipis stunning but we also used their magnificent, 7 reclaimed wood 8-seater tables, as well as chairs, stage, dancefloor, fairy lights and uplighters. The catering tent was also spacious. LoveTipis also facilitated a nice outdoor toilet from a 3rd party without any problems whatsoever. ”

Alan Creswell Wedding, 2019

“Stewart and his team set up 3 tipis for our wedding on Telscombe Tye. The team worked so hard to make our day perfect and were on hand 24 hours a day to help with any issues. The tipis looked amazing and stood up to the weather conditions we had the day before and after the wedding. Thank you for all your hard work to make our day so special.”
