Historically, kåta tipis originate from Sweden.The structures were designed to withstand the harshest environments and the Sami people of Lapland needed them to, the tipis were their homes for many years. The following information and photographs have been supplied by World Inspired Tents…
There are a limitless number of possibilities for wedding couples, whether it’s an intimate wedding for 50 or a huge celebration for 500, because each tipi can be linked together to create one single covered space, the options are endless.
Large tipis can seat up to 70 guests comfortably whilst smaller ones can also be linked, providing a perfect tipi to create a unique chill out area inside, with the use of our soft cushions, bean cubes and a beautiful open log fire. Each and every wedding is different and putting putting your own mark on the most important day of your lives is important.
After you have found your tipi, you should consider furnishing it – use clean, fresh and varied furniture, from rectangle pinewood tables and benches to round tables and backed chairs. Other than that, look for a variety of lighting options, including sparkly fairy lights inside or our outdoor, coloured, flood light sets for any surrounding trees.The open fire is a fantastic feature, it’s totally unique and draws gasps of amazement from guests when they realise it is real!
First impressions are everything and the first impression of the tipis is truly unforgettable. The atmosphere the tipis create is like nothing else. With more and more people going to marquee weddings each year, why not be different and have something which is unique, practical and visually stunning alternative to a standard white marquee.
Tipis offer real flexibility, with the option to have the sides raised, guests can take advantage of a stunning view or a beautiful sunset.Being inside the tipis is really the closest you can get to host your reception outside, in the fresh air, yet at the same time, you are completely protected from the elements.
This type of structure has been around for hundreds of years, it’s a real timeless tent, which forms the basis of an unforgettable celebration and in years to come the wedding photos will still evoke memories of a classic, beautiful and extraordinary occasion.
Everyone has a budget to consider and after sorting out the dress and the honeymoon destination, the venue is possibly one of the largest parts of the wedding to consider.More and more couples are keen to find and create their own reception on remote fields.It’s economical, convenient and gives you the ultimate freedom to do what you want on the day. Naturally, you must check with the landowner first and ask about their hire tariff but many owners can be extremely obliging.
The wonderful thing about our tipis is that once you’ve booked them, you don’t have to spend a huge amount of time or money fitting them with decoration. The tipis stand alone in their beauty, the natural wood, the soft lighting and the beautiful warm glow of the canvas work together to create a stunning venue.
The tipis really lend themselves to the winter months, they can withstand high winds, they are completely waterproof and once the heaters are going and the fires are burning, your guests will be really toasty inside!
