Peaktipis Spring Open Weekend in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District

Come & take a peek at Peaktipis Spring Open Weekend

After a successful Open Day  at The Pheasantry, welcoming lots of excited people inside our Tipi, its time to focus on the exciting countdown to ourPeaktipis Spring Open Weekend in a few weeks time.

Don’t worry though if you didn’t make it to our last Open Day as our Spring Open Weekend is our ‘all singing, all dancing’ event where we will be showcasing three giant Kata Tipis as well as our smaller chill-out Kungs Tipi – all joined together to create one magnificent and inspirational space.

This will be our fifth showcasing Open Weekend and in our fifth wonderful year too, so its guaranteed to be bigger and better than ever and definitely one not to miss if you are thinking of having a Tipi Wedding.

Peaktipis Spring Open Weekend


This year we’ll be in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District,  nestling on the outskirts of our hometown at the Izaak Walton Hotel with panoramic and breathtakingly beautiful views overlooking the spectacular Dovedale Valley.

This charming 17th Century Country House Hotel is situated between the picturesque villages of Ilam and Thorpe and is the perfect backdrop for our fabulous Tipis. Plus its in an ideal {and picture perfect} central location for all of you lovely folk to come and see our Tipis from far and wide, close to major road links (A52, A50, A515, M1, M6) and is just 1 hour from Manchester, Birmingham, Leicester, Sheffield and Nottingham.

If you fancy making a day of it there are some beautiful walks including the iconic ‘Stepping Stones’ or a steady climb up Thorpe Cloud or you can simply relax and grab a bite to eat or drink at The Izaak Walton, whose restaurant is recommended as a top fine dining restaurant in Derbyshire. Their snacks and light bites can be ordered on the day, or if you fancy a special fine dining lunch you can give them a tinkle on 01335 350981 to reserve a table.

Peaktipis Spring Open Weekend 

Joining us – an Award Winning line up:

We’ll be joined again by our inspirational and award winning friends on both days, to inspire you with ideas for your big day, including styling, stationery, photography, videography, flowers, yummy catering and scrummy cakes – all under our beautiful canvases. Plus following all of the recent media coverage of our last Open Weekend event in Your East Midlands Wedding Magazine and the hugely popular Festival Brides Wedding Blog,  we are even more excited about the chosen theme that will be adorning the Tipis this year.

The super talented and multi ‘Wedding Industry Award’ winner Mad Philomena will be in charge of our Tipi styling, props and stationery, supported by fabulous floral displays from Nadia Di Tullio and unique ‘show-stopping’ displays from Fabric Theatre. 

Three. Six. Seven. Nine Photography & Film will be around to chat all things photography and capturing the Kodak moments, whilst ‘too good to eat’ cake will be on show courtesy of the East Midlands Best Cake Maker and Designer Yummy Little Cakes.

The Ceremony Company are on board which is particularly great news for those who are thinking of an outdoor ceremony or blessing, as these guys are the absolute experts in creating a personalised, bespoke ceremony that reflects you and your beau’s personalities. A great opportunity to chat through your plans for your ‘I do’s’.

And as if that wasn’t enough already, last up (but by no means least) the ‘stomach-grumblingly good’ East Midlands Best Caterer’s Black Peppermint Food Co. will be joining us with some tasty treats and fresh tea and coffee.



Our Event is absolutely FREE and there is no requirements for tickets either! We will be open for Brides and Grooms {to be}, family and friends from:

10am to 4pm on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th April

If you’d like a specific time to chat through your plans with a member of the Peaktipis team, you can book a time slot  with our online form here or drop us a line on 0344 411 3460 or email us at , or if you want to just come and have a wander around, simply feel free to drop in and see us on either day. {It can get busy so if you are wanting to chat through your plans, then get in touch and book a time slot that suits you}

If you’re looking for something a little ‘different from the rest’ that is guaranteed to ‘wow’ your guests, then a Tipi wedding is the only choice for you. We look forward to welcoming you and talking all things Tipis.

See you there!
