Our Story

 

When we first stepped inside our giant Tipis it was love at first sight. Now, with over five years experience, we’ve grown into specialists in the event industry; offering alternative structures, mobile bars, furniture and our very own venue. We love meeting and working with people creating incredible weddings, parties and events in stunning locations. You can rest assured that our experienced and friendly team will work closely with you throughout the process; from initial enquiry right through to final planning. On the event day we’ll always be reachable, and after we leave, you’ll hardly notice we were there. We firmly believe in what we do. Don’t take our word for it though, check out some of the glowing testimonials we’ve received.

FAQs

 

Q. How many tipis / what size marquee do I need for my event?

A: This all depends on how many people you have attending your event, if they are all sitting or standing, and what else you would like to have inside. We can build our Tipis to suit your event by selecting which sides to open, and  adding an extension panel or an entrance to create more space. As a general guide, for up to 70 guests we recommend 1 Tipi, for up to 120 guests we recommend 2 Tipis, for up to 160 we recommend 3 Tipis, and for over 160 we recommend 4 or more Tipis. In our Celeste Marquee we recommend up to 80 guests in the single pole, up to 140 guests in the double pole, up to 180 guests in the triple pole, and up to 220 in the quad pole.

Q. What area do you cover?

A. We can set an event up anywhere! Please get in touch for delivery costs.  We are based in Hertfordshire, close to Hitchin.

Q. What accessories are included in the price?

A. Our Tipis come with the essentials; woven matted flooring with waterproof underlay and lighting - chandeliers, a disco ball (Tipi only), LED uplighters and fairy lights throughout. Optional extras worth considering are a dancefloor, stage, outdoor fire pit, pallet-wood or horsebox bar, rustic scaffold board tables with benches / folding wooden chairs, chill-out furniture, nimbus mini tipi, wine barrels, heaters and a catering tent. We work with a number of trusted suppliers who can provide toilets and a generator and alternative furniture.

 Q. What if the weather is bad?

A. Our tipis are waterproof, durable and provide a great shelter from the elements. If the weather is forecast to be fine we can raise the side of the tipis so that you and your guests can enjoy the surroundings. If the weather is poor we can keep the sides closed to protect you, with the option to add an entrance porch or tunnel wherever suitable.

Q. Can you recommend a suitable venue for me to hold my event at?

A. Of course! We are based beside Vanstone Park Venue which boasts an idyllic location bordering vast woodland in rural Hertfordshire. We also have a working relationship with a number of brilliant local venues.

A. Yes we can! Let our experienced team take a weight off your mind and run your bar for you. At The Hammered Peg we offer our 4m rustic pallet-wood bar along with experienced staff, glassware, barware and waste disposal. Our team will stock your bar with a selection of top quality drinks, and it won’t cost you a thing! We simply take a minimum spend deposit of £1,000 which is refundable.

Q. How do you spell Tipi, and where did they originate from?

A. There are a number of options here; Tepee, Teepee or Tipi! It originates from the Mid 18th century: from Sioux tīpī meaning 'dwelling'. A traditional teepee is constructed from buffalo hides sewn together and wrapped around a tripod or cone of poles, and was used by plains Indians after the introduction of the horse from Europe. The teepee was easy to disassemble and transport, using the poles to make a sledge to drag behind horses or dogs, providing the perfect portable shelter for these nomadic tribes.

Q. How do Teepees differ from a wigwam? 

 A. A wigwam is a domed dwelling formerly used by certain Native American and First Nations tribes. It is generally a frame of bent poles covered with pieces of bark and skins, bonded using mud. This type of shelter is semi-permanent and not transportable.
