A little bit about us...

Our love and passion for outdoor events started many years ago now and the team here at Tipi and Kata have been fortunate to be at the forefront of such an exciting and incredible industry.  We started out with just two Giant Hats and each year our fleet has expanded and we now operate the hire service throughout the whole of the UK. 

We just love the way that our tipis can come alive, displaying the character and charms of each couple on their wedding day or effortlessly promote the values of a company or brand.  We are always amazed to see that every client has their own ways and ideas to make their event beautiful.

Our Team

Steve Barnes

Director

“For me the best reward is after an event, when we receive photos, an email or a card from clients to thank the team for all their hard work.  Knowing that we have helped to make your event so special is a great feeling”.

Mark Barnes

Director

“One of the best things about the tipis is the flexibility to build, join and add different tents together to create a bespoke space.  We are fortunate to meet so many lovely people and help them to create a fantastic venue and happy memories along the way”.

Laura Summers

Events Manager

“It’s great getting to know all the amazing couples and help them from their very first enquiry, right through to creating their dream day.  It’s the most rewarding role.  We make memories that last forever and that’s pretty special”.

Our Ethos

From the very start we have always wanted to offer the best possible service to all of our customers.  We think the key to this is to understand that each client has different requirements and we consistently work hard to put together the perfect package for your event.  We offer honest advice and won’t ever try to convince you to have more tents than you will need.  We know how important it is to get the venue size just right.  It’s all about getting the perfect balance to ensure you have ample space for your guests whilst maintaining a great atmosphere and a buzz of excitement throughout your event.

We like to think that we are more than just a tipi hire company.  We always look to go that extra mile and no event is ever too big or small.   We welcome any individual requests and are always happy to spend as much time as you need planning and advising on all aspects of your event.
