Mr & Mrs Hadley – Shropshire - August 2013
It was originally James’s idea regarding the Tipis and as soon as I saw a picture of them in action I was sold- normal marques just looked dated- everybody has done them. We always knew that we wanted to get married at home, a small but fabulous celebration with those people that mean the most to us. Having something different was certainly appealing and a bit unpredicted too!
Our initial conversations with Matt and Duncan were always easy, they listened and took in everything I said. The fact that you could do the date at short notice was obviously a bonus 🙂
I spoke to two tipi suppliers in the end (that both had the date available)- what sealed it with you guys was definitely the service I received over the phone. Easy to talk to, understood what we wanted to achieve and also shared my passion as well as adding their ideas/experiences.
Meeting you guys (and your doggy ‘Herby’) was reassuring, pleasurable and gave me and James nothing but confidence. It’s always nice to do business with people who you like/get on with.
Set up was prompt, your team arrived on time, respected our neighbours with the whole access issue and were professional and just focused on getting the job done and getting it done correctly. Matt offered great advice with the stuff I didn’t know a lot about (generators/power supplies etc), this was much appreciated and truly helpful.
I never knew how stressed I would become on the run up to our day and so working with reliable, focused and knowledgeable people is just crucial. We needed team work, we needed experienced and reliable companies and individuals. We certainly got that from Peaktipis.
We didn’t tell our guests about choosing tipi’s – we really wanted the wow factor on the day. I couldn’t wait to see their faces and hear their reactions. I knew we were in for some great reactions as even the day before the big day the gardeners were fascinated (and our neighbours too) and just loved them, family members too. We dressed the tipi- it looked amazing, the fairy lights are a must! It gave the wow factor when it started to go dark, it was just amazing. So magical.
Our guests couldn’t stop commenting- even today we are known to new people we meet in our village as the couple who got married in their garden with the Tipis (some call them Wig Wams!). Everybody loved them, they are just the perfect alternative venue for someone wanting something that little bit different. Our wedding was very much un-themed but I wanted an English Country Garden feel for our flowers etc, the Tipi’s worked with this a treat. A rustic charm- my one friend called it “Rustic Chic”. I think this is definitely what we achieved.
Our cocktail guys did their bit in the chill out tipi and then took the theatre outside whilst the sun was setting, we got some amazing pictures. The chill out tipi was perfectly decorated by you guys with the chill-out furniture and the fire pit- which we also used to toast marshmallows. Again, everyone just loved it.
I cannot fault any part of our choice, the dramatic look made for some amazing photos, the service we received and the feedback we have had. I cannot wait for another reason to have you guys again.
Peaktipis- simply perfect. We would definitely recommend to friends. Thanks again for contributing to our wonderful memories.
