Sami Tipi’s Year In Review 2016

What an amazing year 2016 has been. When starting a new year we all take the time to consider what the year ahead of us can hold and what we’d like to achieve and boy did it deliver.

Another year on and we have extended our tipi family with the addition of 3 giant hats and our baby mini hat tipi (aka the nimbus) which allowed us to host over 50 Sami Tipi celebrations.

We’ve worked with amazing couples and the joy of what we do is we get to see all the individuality of each event unfold and no two events are the same. Here’s a montage to some of the gorgeous couples we’ve had the pleasure of working with this year.

AMAZON # 1 Best Seller

Kicking the year off we launched our AMAZON # 1 best seller “The Ultimate Guide to Planning an Outdoor Wedding. It was quite a surreal moment watching your own book climb the Amazon charts, and screen shoting each chart climb. The hard work of putting pen to paper was all worth it with the amazing feedback we’ve had from couples and their families who have devoured all the information to help them plan their outdoor wedding.


Supporting Local Charity

Throughout the year we have supported Treetops Hospice Care in Risley, Derbyshire with a number of their fund raising events, which also included us getting to know the Siddiqui family from Gogglebox at their Spring Fair.


Showcasing Events

Throughout the year we get to play with tipis ourselves when hosting showcasing events. These provide us with the perfect opportunity to try new things and work with teams of talented suppliers.

Here are some treats we’ve created this year.

And The Winner Is…

Seriously how do you top all of that off? There is only one way….by WINNING the Wedding Industry Award for the Best Marquee Provider in the East Midlands. This is a real testament to the whole Sami Tipi team who work so hard to deliver such high standards of service.

Here is to 2017

So whats on the wish list for 2017? More of the same would be amazing.

Thank you to everyone who have celebrated under our canvas this year, been part of our open events and just general social media friends. You are all amazing, and we are truly grateful for all your support.

Wishing you an amazing NEW YEAR and all the best in 2017.
