A totally tipi wedding
Discover the ‘blank canvas’ beauty of a Wild Tipi wedding.
If you’re dreaming about a truly magical wedding venue, then a tipi might be just the thing. A unique alternative to a standard marquee reception, Wild Tipi hire out beautiful Giant Hat Tipis for truly memorable weddings and events across Cornwall and the south west. This superb Cornish company has 16 fixed locations around the county, but their gentle giants can be put up virtually anywhere, opening the doors to some of Cornwall’s most stunning locations. In short, if you’re dreaming of a clifftop wedding with views over the Atlantic, wish to feel the sand between your toes at a beach wedding, or long to be nestled deep in the woods when you say ‘I do’, then a Wild Tipi hire could answer your prayers!

Each Wild Tipi is made in the UK from sustainably sourced English pine, making them a kinder choice for the environment too. Their tipis come in a range of different sizes, from a ‘Baby Hat’, which makes the perfect outdoor bar or gathering place, to the sweeping Giant Hats, which span 10.5 metres across and can each host 60 people, seated! The tipis can also be linked together, creating endless opportunities for larger gatherings
To date, Wild Tipi’s biggest event (a wedding on the listed lawns of Dartington Hall) saw seven tipis linked together, creating a truly awe-inspiring space for 280 people seated, complete with a dance floor, orchestra pit and chill-out area.
The beauty of a tipi is that they’re quite literally a blank canvas; not only is the set-up and location of your choosing, the décor can be tailored entirely to your tastes too! Wild Tipi understand well how overwhelming planning a wedding can be, so they’re happy to be as involved as you wish, from helping with the decoration to recommending some of Cornwall’s best suppliers. They also offer complete on-the-day support and wedding planning services, recycling packages and additional hire options to cover lighting, seating, flooring, tables, bar, chill-out areas, even an indoor fire pit, if that’s what you want.
