Meet The Owners
Husband and Wife Team Craig & Jodie
Owned and run by Jodie and Craig, we are a family run business based in the Midlands providing tipi hire for weddings and events within the Midlands and surrounding areas.
Our love of tipis actually began in Dubai when we came across them at a major sporting event. They were stunning and we came away wanting to work with these amazing structures.
Together with our team we will be with you throughout the entire event process. From the initial contact, site visit and planning sessions through to the erection and removal of the tipis from your venue, the Sami Tipi team will be friendly, helpful and thoroughly professional at all times.
We look forward to discussing your requirements and planning what will be a stunning and unforgettable event.

Sami Tipi was established back in 2012. We feel so lucky to have worked with so many amazing people who have trusted us to deliver them with amazing Tipi and Sailcloth events for their wedding celebrations to corporate showcases to birthday bashes.
We’ve built trust with suppliers we work with and who work with us.
As a wedding planner, it’s super important to both my clients, and myself, that I work with the very best, reliable wedding suppliers. I can highly recommend Sami Tipi as being one of these such suppliers. From the moment my clients start scoping out their wedding with them to the delivery on site – the friendly, one to one, service is exceptional. They communicate throughout so you always know where you are stand, and, offer a wide range of accessories & furniture to create the perfect, individual wedding venue. The build quality is also of a high standard – the attention to the little things
that really do make a difference.

Why we insist on Tentipi
Where it all began..
What is in a name?
After people have commented on how amazingly stunning the tipis are, inevitably one of their subsequent questions is “why the name Sami Tipi”? followed by “is your name Sami?”. Well a lot more thought went into our name than most people realise. Have a read about our journey and the thought process behind our business name.
