What is an Open Event?

Our open events are held throughout the year and will offer you the perfect opportunity to see the tipis and Sailcloth Tent.

They are designed with you in mind, we want to give you a relaxed experience whilst giving you an insight into how your celebration could look and feel.

There are different showcase events held throughout the year. Each will showcase different Tipi and Sailcloth configurations and will be supported by different local suppliers.  It is an opportunity to experience the magic of the tipis and sailcloth tent.  You will get a sense of the atmosphere that they create, how the space works, and how the space could work for you.

Find out the showcase dates and pop them in your wedding planning diary.

Field Viewings | NOW HAPPENING

Do you LOVE the idea of an outdoor wedding? Brill, so do we. One of the first steps is to find WHERE you are going to have it. We work with a number of sites across the Midlands that all offer something special.

Three of these sites, Sami Tipi manage and we are now able to offer you a viewing. We will, of course, be social distancing. But out in the open with lots of space around us, this won’t be a problem at all.

Be Inspired By Our Past Open Events

Autumn Open Weekend 2021

Our 2021 Autumn Open Weekend was our first chance to show off the gorgeous Priory Meadows.  With both tipis and sailcloth on show, it was an amazing weekend, full of wedding inspiration, and heaps of supplier friends to show everyone how their events could look and feel.

The Outdoor Wedding Show 2021

The Outdoor Wedding Show 2021, was our first chance to show off our sailcloth and tipis since the start of the pandemic.  We were all super excited to be back out in the field doing what we love at the brilliant Cattows Farm.  Cathy from Boelle Events styled the sailcloth, and pulled together a supplier team to create a Styled Shoot to show off all their hard work.

Jasper of Yellow Glove Films worked his magic capturing the beauty of this styled shoot.

Spring Showcase 2020

Our Spring Showcase took place at Cattows Farm, Leicestershire. With our Two giant hats and chill-out tipi styled by Tara Knott Styled Events and a bunch of super talented supplier friends, it was a great showcase.

The Outdoor Wedding Show 2019

The Outdoor Wedding Show 2019, was our biggest event of the year. We collaborated with over 50 local suppliers to showcase how your outdoor wedding could look and feel in both our Tipi and Sailcloth tent.

Jasper of Yellow Glove Films worked his magic behind the lens capturing the weekend event and peoples reaction to it.

Autumn Open Weekend 2018

Our 2018 Autumn Open Weekend saw two different tipi setups with very different vibes.  Held at Cattows Farm in Leicestershire, we had Malibu Beach styling by Boelle Events and Paris With Love by The Rustic Wedding Company.
