WHO WE ARE
Freedom to celebrate
Tipi Spaces is a small, family business based in East Devon. The idea for creating outdoor wedding venues was born out of our own love for outdoor adventures, gatherings and celebrations. At home in the garden, at festivals or remote spots around the UK and further afield. We have lots of happy memories of spending time with family and friends outdoors, playing music, telling stories and sharing a meal around a fire and beneath a starlit sky. Uniting all these experiences has been the element of space in nature and freedom beyond the confines of indoors.
Our giant, ‘white’ Nordic tipis enable us to offer you the space and freedom to entertain and celebrate outdoors in a meaningful place; at home, in a garden, on a farm, in a park, by the sea, on the riverside, by a lake, on a hill-top or in a woodland. Outdoors, in the fresh air but with the benefit of a beautiful shelter so you can party whatever the weather. If you have the outdoor space we can bring the Tipi Space!
We specialise in outdoor weddings, alfresco dinner parties, Summer fiestas and retreats in nature.
Our unique tipis are low impact, fire proof, water resistant, strong, flexible and strikingly beautiful.
Our Tipi Family
It takes a brilliant and committed team to build our tipis and we are lucky to have some very talented and intelligent humans working with us. They are not machines but they do work exceptionally hard in all weathers and take great pride in their work. They understand they are working to a strict deadline but will never cut corners and will always do their utmost to delight you.
They are kept happy with the odd tea break, a biscuit or two or an ice lolly when the sun shines!
