We first Met Emma and her family at the National Wedding Show in Birmingham in October 2013, she had a clear idea of how she wanted their wedding day to look and having the tipis was really important to them both. The next step was to find the right location to host their wedding tipis, Emma and Glenn really thought out of the box and found a gorgeous site at a local golf club, which ordinarily isn’t used for weddings. Here is what they had to say about their day;
We were lucky enough to meet Sami Tipi at the NEC wedding show and from then on, we have never looked back! As soon as we saw a photo of the tipis we fell IN LOVE! The next thing to do was to see them up in all their glory. On the approach we could see the giant hats poking above trees in the distance, it was so exciting! Then when you arrive and walk down the matting, entering the tents, you suddenly get this overwhelming sense of ‘I want them, I need them for my wedding’ No venue we had looked at could ever compare to them! Booking the tipis for our wedding is one of the best decisions we have ever made, we could not have asked for anything more on our big day. We had torrential rain but we can whole heartedly say that it didn’t matter because the tipis made it PERFECT!
All of our guests were amazed by it, from the young to the old and everyone in between, they all thought our tipis were incredible. We have been inundated with compliments and questions on how to go about booking them. If anyone reading this is still thinking about having Sami Tipi at your wedding then my biggest piece of advice would be JUST DO IT! There is no way that you could ever regret booking them. Craig and Jodie are the nicest people you will ever meet. No question too small and no favour too big. From 100’s of emails to 10’s of floor plans, Sami Tipi did not falter. Whatever time of day/night you choose to send an email with a silly question, you always know that Jodie will be straight on it and get back to you in no time.
The customer service that this business offer is second to none, they gave us the chance to have the most magical day and I don’t think we could ever repay them. There are no words to describe how stunning these tipis are, they are unbelievably versatile and a complete blank canvas for you to decorate them in whatever theme you decide on. We went for all things vintage so the wooden tables & benches and the beautiful exposed bamboo structure fit in with this perfectly.
Go for it, be unique, you will totally LOVE IT! Emma & Glenn xxx
