Real Peaktipis Wedding – Jo and Ed

Mr and Mrs Shorthouse – Summer 2013 – Nottinghamshire

Jo and Ed tied the knot back in the marvelous May of 2013 in Papplewick, Nottinghamshire and we knew it was going to be a special one with Jo’s job as a Wedding Planner. A naked cake, reams of vintage bunting, potted plants and beautiful blooms a-plenty, their lovely rustic Tipi reception had lots of gorgeous DIY detail.

Peaktipis turn five

MAY marks our fifth birthday!

Party with Peaktipis

The end of this month marks our aMAYzing fifth birthday and what an incredible five years it has been! 2015 started on a high for us, winning the Wedding Industry awards ‘Best Marquee Provider’ in the East Midlands award and is testament to how far our small, but extremely passionate Tipi hire company has come over the last five years. We also won a life changing trip with Tentipis, going back to our Tipis heritage in the Swedish Lapland and got to experience first hand how the Sámi people live in this climate as well as a trip to the factory where our beloved Tipis are made. Two of the best birthday presents we could have ever wished for!

To mark this special occasion here’s a little run down of ‘our story’ and the last five amazing and memorable years:

Real Peaktipis Wedding Ceriann and James

Mr & Mrs Hadley – Summer 2013 – Shropshire

After several initial phone conversations and emails, we first met the lovely Ceriann and James on an extremely hot Summers day in 2013, when we teamed a little family weekend away with their site visit at their beautiful home in Shropshire. They welcomed us {and even our pooch Herby} with refreshing fruit punch into their delightful ‘sun drenched’ courtyard to discuss their ideas for their special day. They too had a fun-loving little four-legged’ friend called Doris, who had lots of fun chasing around with Herby and whom was without doubt ‘part of the family’ and going to play a part in James and Ceriann’s day.

We talked, laughed and shared suggestions, before they took us off to look at the stunning paddocks behind the house to decide where the Tipis would sit in secret and surprise their guests on the big day.

Real Peaktipis Wedding Victoria and Richard

Mr & Mrs Ward – Summer 2013 – Derbyshire 

We have a wonderful Friday treat and ‘throwback’ for you today of the beautiful Summer  Real Peaktipi Wedding of Victoria and Richard back in 2013 in Derbyshire.

Victoria and Richard live in Surrey but decided they wanted to come back to Victoria’s routes in Derbyshire to tie the knot. They got married on Victoria’s birthday in 2013 in a little, quaint Derbyshire village Church in Norbury and then back to Victoria’s parents house, where the Tipis were proudly waiting in the Garden for a huge celebration for them and their guests.

Their story is heart-warming to say the least, a chance meeting on the train in the busy capital {you could call it ‘Fate’ but as old fashioned romantics we prefer to think ‘True Love at first sight’} Enjoy Victoria’s very kind, incredibly detailed  and beautiful overview of their special day with some gorgeous shots she chose to share with us at the end.

The Wedding Industry Awards Best Marquee Provider East Midlands

Winning ‘Best Marquee Provider’ in the East Midlands #TWIA2015

The Wedding Industry Awards were formed the same year that Peaktipis tents first graced the Derbyshire countryside back in 2011 and whilst we have looked on ‘in awe’ at past winners {imagining… ‘maybe one day’} and despite being encouraged by fellow suppliers and past clients to enter, we felt that we needed to build a credible brand and reputation for recognised, quality service and standards in our field and within this hugely competitive Industry before even considering entry for an award! We didn’t want to run before we could walk.
