7 Reasons to have a Tipi Wedding

Do you desire an unforgettable wedding day that you can tailor towards your heart’s greatest wishes? Then an untraditional venue could be for you.

In this blog, our wedding venue in Beverley lists seven reasons why you should consider a tipi wedding.

1. A blank canvas

When you book a traditional wedding, there are many aspects of the decor that you lack control over. If the carpet, furnishings or wallpaper of the venue is not to your taste, you must overlook this and compromise.

However, a tipi is a space that can be transformed into your own idea of the perfect wedding venue. At some venues, you even have the freedom to choose your own caterers, entertainment and suppliers, so you can create your dream wedding in its whole entirety.

2. Be at one with nature

A tipi wedding allows you to immerse yourself in the alluring outdoors. Being undercover also enables you to enjoy the best benefits of nature, whilst still being sheltered from the weather’s elements. Come rain or snow, your day shall commence unaffected.

Location is everything, which is why many tipis are situated in the rolling countryside, standing proud amongst the wild flowers and complimenting the eloquent landscape. In the daytime the sun beams on it with honour, and on an evening a dressing of fairy lights effortlessly mimic the stars of the night.

3. Step away from stress

The best weddings are those where the guests feel incredibly at ease in their surroundings. A tipi wedding offers the perfect alternative to a traditional wedding in a church or registry office, which some could find high-pressured.

Tipis also offer escapism for the bride and groom, away from the hustle and bustle of a city location. And, it is needless to endure the upheaval of travelling from one venue to another on the day, as the wedding ceremony, breakfast and evening reception can take place inside the tipi.

4. The WOW factor

It is extremely likely that most of your wedding guests will have attended a standard wedding venue, such as a church. Supply them with a unique experience and fill their faces with awe and wonder as they gaze upon your wedding venue.

Guests may have witnessed many weddings, but yours will be the one that they will be sure to remember. With the help of your creative touch, the venue has every possibility to be as breath-taking as the saying of your vows.

5. Food vans

Many features of a tipi wedding are impossible to include in a standard indoor venue. One of these features is food vans, which are becoming increasingly popular at bespoke venues across the UK, including Carlton Manor.

From wood fired pizza to fish and chips, food vans can deliver a range of dishes to cater to any guest’s palette. Far from the set menus found at traditional wedding breakfasts, the vans give guests the option to choose the food they truly desire.

6. Instagram worthy backdrop

Photography is a brilliant way to encapsulate and preserve memories of your special day. However it is styled, the Carton Tipi is picture-perfect from every angle, outside and in. Whether it appears in professional family photos or phone camera selfies with friends, you will be sure to gain images worth sharing far and wide.

Sometimes, guests can float away into the magic of your wedding day, and must be reminded to take photographs. We recommend leaving disposable cameras on each table, which can be used to capture every moment.

7. Perfect all year round

With a robust outer layer, wedding tipis are a cosy space that can keep guests warm even in the colder months. Equally, in spring and summer, guests can relax into the evenings outside of the tipi.

Designed to the highest quality, the Carlton Tipi can be custom-fit to meet the British polar winters and warm summer days. With capacity to seat 150 guests and hold an additional 50 for your evening celebrations, the Carlton Tipi is the perfect stage for the bride and groom.

The Carlton Tipi is currently available for midweek and weekend weddings. Enquire today and get in touch with our Beverley team.
