Tipi Fiesta

One of the amazing things about TipiKata’s Nordic Tipis is that they always seem to perfectly reflect the personalities of the couples that choose to celebrate in them, no matter what their style may be. Each tipi celebration is so unique and individual and the one we are about to feature totally revealed the love and fun loving nature of the couple.

Courtney and Simon were trailblazers and the first couple to ever host and celebrate a tipi wedding in South Australia. The whole family were on board and it was all hands on deck to make the vision into a reality. The couple decided on a fiesta theme and transformed their whole garden, shed and home. Guests were welcomed by a towering ceremony tipi in the front garden where the couple tied the knot in a fun filled ceremony with SA celebrity celebrant, Dorinda Hafna.

After the official bits were over, the guests wandered into the back garden, where the party tipi was ready for action. An orange and fig tree draped in fairy lights featured in the space (yep, we can put  our tipis up around trees) and a cheeky mariachi band entertained the guests until the DJ took over keeping guests dancing till sunrise.

Colourful Mexican bunting, scattered rugs and cushions, cable reel coffee tables and a sparkling chandelier all contributed to the fun and eclectic feel.

Courtney and Simon had so much fun, that before they even had a chance to go on their honeymoon, they were hatching a plan in the wee hours of the morning to bring the fun and magic of tipi celebrations to other South Australian couples. Less than six months down the track and they are about to launch Kata and Co, South Australia’s first Nordic Kata Tipi hire company. We wish this beautiful couple all the very best for their life together and for their new business.

We know that they will spread the tipi love around!
