Well where do I start!!! Last night the Sami Tipi team WON the highly commended award for best wedding marquee provider in the East Midlands. This is a real testament to all our hard work and commitment ensuring all of our gorgeous couples enjoyed their perfect tipi wedding. We could not have achieved this without the help of our gorgeous Sami Tipi Brides and Grooms that took the time to vote for us and share with the judging panel their Sami Tipi experience. What was a real privilege is that we did not choose to enter, we were nominated to enter. When opening the email to say we had been nominated was privilege enough in itself.
Working for yourself as an independent is filled with it’s own rewards, but does come with it’s own challenges. Working on your own in a office can sometimes be a little lonely, so other wedding industry suppliers become your work colleagues and friends. Their support is invaluable in keeping you focused on your own goals.
We often get asked why did we start Sami Tipi??? Both myself and Craig knew that we wanted to work in an industry that appealed to us both and also complimented our own skill base of project management, customer service, sales, team building and training. Through a lot of thoughtful considering, planning and research and a love for the Tentipi product Sami Tipi was born, and has grown from strength to strength. Coming from a corporate background I frequently attended award ceremonies on a quarterly basis, giving recognition for the work that I did. Working as an independent you lose this. That is why winning the highly commended award last night was so important, it is recognition that you are doing a good job, the pat on the back that we all like to receive. Feeling very proud and skipping in to the office today. Craig and I plus the team of tipi erectors would like to thank everyone for your support on our journey and look forward to helping many more people host their own Tipi events in forthcoming years.
