I’m always excited when there is something completely brand new in Australia, something that can completely change the style of event you’re having because it is so drop dead awesome. Today’s find? Wedding tipis!
Tipikata is a brand new Australian company who has introduced tipis for hire! If you’re looking for something different to a standard wedding venue, and a standard square or rectangular marquee just isn’t quite right? Perhaps the soft caramel colour, circular shape and stunning wooden beams might be the space for you?
One tipi can hold 70 guests (or 100 for cocktail) but the tipis can be joined together for larger celebrations holding 120 guests in a double.
There’s endless options too- sides open (relaxed and warm on a Summer’s day) or shut (cosy and snug for winter), floor matting and even (my favourite part of all) a fireplace. How fun would it be to pile a few couches around the fireplace at a winter wedding? Allowing guests to be mesmerised by the crackling fire while they’re enjoying your reception? Tipikata also provide tents for parties too (personally I hope Mr P reads this as I’m thinking a party in a tipi for my next birthday would be just dandy?)
Tipikata is based out of Melbourne and owned by long term friends Hayley & Lina who are both excited about the magic a tipi creates. When I emailed Hayley she said “Everything about creating TipiKata has been natural and exciting for us, a kind of “this is meant to be” experience. We really want to share our vision of creativity, togetherness and connection. We want hiring a TipiKata tipi to be a complete experience, where we assist our couples to create and enjoy a totally unique celebration. ”
