About Peaktipis

A Tipi Trip down our 2014 Lane

2014 –  An epic year to remember!

2014 has been Peaktipis biggest and best year yet! As the year draws to a close and we enjoy the last few days of the Festive break, spending time with family and friends and celebrating the New Year, we wanted to take a Tipi Trip down our 2014 lane of this fantastically busy  fourth year and appreciate some of the amazing Weddings, Events and photoshoots we’ve been fortunate to be a part of.

2014 Best Year Award Winning Tipi Wedding


Our season started with our annual Spring Open Weekend where we were joined by an amazing team of talented and inspirational friends in the Wedding industry. After months of emails, phone calls and meetings, we set up on a cold, wet April weekend in Derbyshire and welcomed lots of excited Brides and Grooms to be, their family and friends to come and see under our cosy canvases. We were overwhelmed by the attendance, especially given the typically wet British Weather. A huge thank you goes out again for all of the hardwork and passion from our fabulous friends at Mad PhilomenaThe Flower Mill,  Yummy Little Cakes Black Peppermint Food Company,  Three Six Seven Nine Photo & Film,  Robin Red Bunting Hire and Routemaster Bus Bar who all helped make the weekend such a huge success! #dreamteam

Our season then kicked off in full swing starting up North in Runswick Bay {a beautiful site overlooking the sea} and then into a full on but exciting six Spring and Summer months across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Herefordshire, Buckinghamshire, Yorkshire, Greater Manchester and Leicestershire {Peetee, our ‘Trusty Tipi Steed’ has LOVED the road trips up and down the country but is well and truly ready for his winter break!} Enjoy our fabulous video montage of all of our 2014 Weddings, Events and celebrations.


In amongst our busy season we also showcased at two fab Wedding shows, the first ever Pop Up Wedding Village hosted by both Honeysuckle and Castle and Save the Data Magazine at the stunning Derbyshire National Trust’s Calke Abbey. Despite the typical Great British Weather, the event was a huge success with over 65 fabulous Wedding exhibitors, Live Music, Festival Atmosphere, Fine Food and special VIP area inside our Tipis! The event was captured beautifully by the fab Our Wedding Videographers, check it out We are very much looking forward to sponsoring the event once again in 2015, so if you got engaged over the Christmas period or are planning your big day its one not to miss.

We also showcased our fabulous Nimbus {mini Tipi} at the East Midlands biggest and best Wedding Event with a Difference hosted by the delightful duo at Save the Date Magazine. This gave Brides and Grooms an opportunity to talk tipis but also see our Nimbus which can cater for a number of things on their big day including a BBQ area for caterers, a smoking shelter for guests or even an outdoor lounging area which can be filled with vintage deck chairs, hay bales or soft furnishings. We will be showcasing again at this fabulous event in Nottingham in March 2015, alongside 80 creative, unique and hand picked Wedding suppliers, for tickets or more information visit: Wedding Event with a Difference.

The last weekend in September, when the weather still felt like the ‘height of Summer’ we hosted our annual Autumn Open Weekend to mark the start of a brand new collaboration with Honeysuckle and Castle  at a 2 day Wedding Event at one of Derbyshire most majestic venues, Kedleston Hall. Not only was this an Open Weekend for Brides and Grooms to-be to come along, but a fabulous team of Wedding professionals came together also to create a spell bounding photoshoot full of charm and inspiration for those considering a civil ceremony in the magnificent Kedleston Hall and a reception to remember, in the grounds within our stunning tents.

Teaming up with Honeysuckle and Castle we are providing a limited special offer to get married at Kedleston throughout May 2015 with a massive discount of £1,395 – for more information or to request a brochure contact Helen at Honeysuckle & Castle

November has to go down as one of the most memorable and magical months of 2014 for us, as we scooped the title and award for The Best Marquee provider in the East Midlands 2015 Wedding Industry Awards. We are still smiling from ear to ear and shouting it from the tops of our tipis about winning this award. It is absolute testament and recognition to our small but dedicated team’s passion, hard work and overall quality service that we have developed and delivered to all of our Brides and Grooms over the past four years. We hope our future prospective Brides and their Beau’s will recognise this award as just one of the many reasons to choose Peaktipis over other marquee or tipi providers out there and that they will see that experience, knowledge and expertise matter and that cheapest isn’t always necessarily the best, especially for such a big decision for their ‘one’ special day.                     The Wedding Industry Awards Tipis Teepees Derby Weddings

Now as if that wasnt enough excitement already in 2014, Christmas certainly came early for Team Peaktipis at the beginning of December as we discovered that we had WON an exciting three day Swedish Lapland adventure with our tent providers Tentipi Tents, an amazing trip back to our tipis’ heritage. We’ll enjoy getting around on Ski Doo’s, ice-fishing, setting up camp and cooking in our be-loved Tipis all  whilst embracing the harsh but fascinating winter elements.  During this exciting trip there’s also the possibility of witnessing the breath-taking Northern Lights too – excited doesn’t even come close, roll on March 2015!

2015 will begin with the nail biting National finals of the Wedding Industry Awards in London, with fingers, toes and everything crossed for us and our other fab friends who are through to the National Finals, including Mad Philomena, Benessamy Wedding & Events, Yummy Little Cakes, Black Peppermint Food Company  and Tineke  Floral Designs. No matter the result however, we are thrilled to have come this far and already won Best Marquee provider in the East Midlands for 2015. We can’t thank all of our wonderful clients that voted for us enough and for those great friends we have made in the industry that have encouraged and supported Peaktipis since day one. #GroupHug

So to sum it up, 2014 has most definitely been a year to remember and with busy season’s already ahead for both 2015 and 2016, plus a little matter of us celebrating our ‘Fifth Birthday’ in 2015, we simply can’t wait for it to begin. Have a magical New Years Eve with whatever plans you have ahead and we look forward to sharing lots more Peaktipis Love with you in the New Year.
