What if it rains?
We have had the Tipis out in wind, rain, snow and even sunshine! Our advice is to plan for rain - that way you know you have everything covered off and pre-planned. * This might be having clear frontage on standby, for the Tipis * Having enough indoor space so that if everyone has to be inside the space is comfortable * Consider the location of the bar if you can have this inside or close to the entrance * Locate the Toilet Close by If you are considering an outdoor wedding ceremony. Your Plan B space will generally be the Dance Floor area. Embrace it!
Can we see the Tipis and Sailcloth Tent?
Yes, we have a number of open events throughout the year where you can see the Tipis and Sailcloth up in all their glory. You’ll be able to see what they look like when they are all lit up at night-time; perfect for imagining how your evening reception will look and how it will feel. You’ll be able to walk around inside and really get a feel for what kind of arrangement you want for your wedding. We will keep you updated on up-and-coming events. We also keep our open events page up to date here: www.samitipi.co.uk/open-events/
Do we need power and toilets?
To make your outdoor event function, you will require power and toilets. If your site does not offer power or organise the hiring in of an event generator, this is something we can do for you. If you would prefer to organise your own generator, we will advise you on our power requirements. We also work with a number of luxury toilet hire companies. We are happy to coordinate the hiring of these in for you, or we can recommend suppliers we have worked within the past.
What support do we have after we have booked?
Our team are always at the end of the phone or email whenever you need us. In addition to this we like to formally offer two planning meetings. These tend to be 6 months before the big day, then a second one 6 weeks before. This is time together to work through your timeline, guest needs, supplier needs and from this we can then begin to create a floor plan that works for you.
Are you a Member of MUTA?
YES. MUTA is the Kite Mark for Tent and Marquee providers in the UK. Ensuring your event is in safe hands, with a trusted supplier and an experienced team. It is the UK’s only trade association dedicated to marquees, tents and structures. When you hire any outside structure, you want to make sure that they are a MUTA member. Not everyone in our industry chooses to be a member, but your biggest day is too important – so at Sami Tipi we wouldn’t have it any other way.
A MASSIVE THANK YOU to you and the Sami tipi team. From start to finish and everything in-between you have been fantastic. You have made organising a wedding painless! Everyone had such an amazing time and absolutely loved the tipis!
Ross and I want to say a big THANK YOU for everything that you've done for us over the past year. From your advice about setting up the marquee to suit our needs, to recommending some amazing suppliers, to your support and kindness over the past few months - we've truly appreciated everything you've done for us. The showcases you put on over the past year have been fab to attend and have really helped us to, not only decide on the type of wedding we wanted, but also make the process of wedding planning a lot more exciting. Although a stressful few months leading up to our wedding day, it all came to life just as we imagined (well... even better than we ever imagined!), and the sailcloth looked absolutely beautiful
I honestly can’t think of anything. Jodie & Craig and team were all outstanding Jodie & Craig made our garden wedding dreams come true. They were helpful, professional, friendly and their tipi was the jewel in the crown of our wedding reception. I honestly could have cried when it went up it was so beautiful. The attention to detail and quality of the tipi and interior furnishings were incredible
They were amazing from start to finish and even when we changed our whole wedding date 5 days prior & pulled it forward, they were straight on it to make sure we didn't worry about a thing. They went above and beyond to make it happen for us & nothing was ever too much trouble. Jodie, Craig and the team are a dream to work with and constantly kept in touch throughout every step, the whole process was seamless. Our wedding experience wouldn't have been the same or as special without them
Our whole wedding experience with ST was a total dream; fantastic communication, flawlessly organised, totally transparent about all aspects such as logistics, costs, requirements etc. At no point were we misinformed at all. So highly experienced. Jodie guided us on how to host a wedding for 120 guests perfectly. Craig & co set up the tipi's SO fast and with ease that it still amazes us all!! We put all our trust in them and they were fabulous, hands down the best
