Full Description
Elite Tents, established in 2010, is the leading Tipi & Sailcloth Hire company in Central England. We have helped over 800 couples (and counting) to create their Dream Wedding and are perfectly equipped to make your wedding truly memorable. Year after year, couples get married and sometimes you can find yourself witnessing many weddings in a year, which can unfortunately end up merging into one happy blur. To be honest, we wish we could’ve had an outdoor wedding venue and reception when we got married – but years ago the only way to do that was to hire an ordinary ‘white box’ marquee. Thankfully things are very different now and we have a choice of two stunning types of tents either of which will make sure your special day stands out from all the rest. TIPIS - CREATE THE PERFECT EVENT UNDER A TIPI TENT… Tipi or “teepee” tents are incredible constructions. We promise we’re not being biased – we’ve seen how they’ve created the most unique and memorable occasions. Clothed with natural tan canvases and supported by traditional Scandinavian wooden poles, teepees create a stunning yet practical venue… wherever that may be! SAILCLOTH TENTS - AN AMAZING ALTERNATIVE TENT FOR YOUR SPECIAL EVENT… Sailcloth tents offer an equally unique yet very different option than our tipis. These luminescent sheer top tents will literally make your event glow. Like the tipis they have traditional wooden poles, and high points within the roof. But these tents are opal in colour, a pearlescent white and are beautifully elegant. So the choice is yours, and with our experience you can rest assured you are in safe hands, the Elite team love what they do and will love to hear from you... Pricing info shown in the listing summary: Based on a wedding for middle sized, gold package wedding in 2 Kåtas and a Kungsörnen tipi for up to 120 seated guests and 150 capacity. We have a variety of packages to suit different guest numbers and level of inclusive furnishings and decor.

We cannot recommend Elite Tents enough!
We cannot recommend Elite Tents enough! We hired 3 Tipi’s and 2 Nimbus for our Wedding in June this year. We’ve had some lovely feedback from guests saying how much they loved the Tipi’s and we still love them just as much as we did when we first saw their beautiful Nordic Tipi’s. They are such a professional, reliable and well organised company and the loveliest team of people! We have got to know the Team really well over the last 2 years as we had to postpone our 2021 summer wedding and despite already having booked our Tipi’s with Elite Tents they always made us feel so welcome when we went to their Open Days which are so worthwhile going to to get inspiration for how to decorate the beautiful Tipi’s how you want for your occasion.The Team are so approachable, friendly and fun and made us feel like they really cared about our welfare. I got upset at an open day in 2020 as we were concerned our wedding would have to be postponed and the team were calm and caring and reassured us that if that happened we would in safe hands with them. We had a stressful time having to postpone our Wedding in the end but Elite Tents made us feel so safe and secure. They have communicated with us throughout and there has always been someone at the end of the phone for us to speak to about it anything or reply to emails quickly and efficiently. They are super organised and their experience shows as we haven’t had to worry about anything. They were patient with us when we needed to keep changing our seating plan to accommodate guests in wheelchairs and with mobility issues and talked through everything the weeks before our Wedding in June. We realised the week of our wedding we were going to be forecast heavy rain and they allowed us to hire an Extra Nimbus last minute and fire logs last minute to make sure our guests were warm and dry. The quality of the Tipi’s were put to the test as we had lots of rain on our Wedding Day in the Woodland. The Tipi’s remained water tight, the matting on the woodland floor stayed dry and all of the fairy lights inside and out sparkled. The Tipi’s are stunning in the daytime but as it gets dark they become even more magical and the fairy lights really are a must have addition. We loved the option to have the tables set up in an informal way we chose the long tables with benches and added reindeer hides, we also had some chairs for older guests and there are high chairs for hire too. Set up day went without a hitch. The team were there on time to start an early morning set up and worked so hard to make sure the 3 Tipi’s were up as quickly as they could so we could start decorating as soon as possible. The whole team work so hard and are always so friendly. We will miss not going to anymore of their Open Days they are such a lovely team and we can’t thank them enough for their kindness to us.

Highly Recommend!!
Fantastic Service Thru the whole process. Nothing was to much trouble Very easy to get in contact with to ask any questions or advice in setting the Tipi & Facilities up . We had to postpone our date a couple of times due to covid restrictions and again they made the process as easy and stress free as possible . All our guests commented on just how amazing & Impressive the Tipi looked . We were able to have the Tipi in a local venue they had not used before , They were able to check the venue remotely and agree it would be suitable. Highly recommend!! Thanks for everything 😁🧡 Mark & Scott x

Pours all their effort and more into your event!
An incredible company that pours all their effort and more into your event! We were delighted to use Elite stents for our wedding celebration. From the off they were great to talk to, understanding needs and making perfect recommendations. The team regularly check in and make sure you’re happy with the process. When the time of set up arrived all staff were incredibly helpful, listen to all ideas and make the venue come alive with care and attention. We achieved a perfect occasion thanks to Elite Tents and their team. We can’t recommend them highly enough!

The most magical setting for us and our guests
We recently got married on 3rd July and we were fortunate to get married at home with the help of Elite Tents. The tipi’s fitted into our garden like a glove and made the most magical setting for us and our guests. The whole team all the way through the booking process up to set up day were fantastic and especially given the added stress of Covid was even more special. We can’t thank you enough for helping to make our wedding the best day of our lives. Love The Morse’s xx

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Unique, Rustic, Personal, Nordic, Jaw-Dropping

What about your business are you most proud of?

We are incredibly proud of our customer service and how we follow up with our clients, dedicating ourselves to making your day perfect by keeping regular contact to check floorplans, make suggestions, recommend suppliers and generally to get to know you!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Let your personality shine through! Follow the principle that whatever you choose for your special day is in line with your character. Think about the whole theme of the wedding and use it as your starting point. Using a board on Pinterest is a great way of collecting ideas - there are lots of examples of images other brides and companies like ours have already put together that will help you. Consider the following ideas when deciding on what is right for you: - Favourite colours for your flowers and table runners - Favourite flowers, maybe even wild ones - Bunting, pompoms and lace for decorating - Photos of family, friends and places that are special to you, hung up or in a vintage style suitcase - Jams, plants, biscuits, welsh cakes or other homemade gifts for favours - Origami windmills and flowers - Charity donations instead of favours, buying everyone a pin badge linked to a charity special to you - Table names linked to you, favourite bands, films or character; places you have visited, anything important to you - A wishing tree instead of the usual guestbook

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

A Christmas wedding, but instead of a guestbook, there was a bare Christmas tree, with a basket of clear baubles and strips of paper. The guests would write a message to the couple, place it inside a bauble with some fairy lights, and hang it on the Christmas tree!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

A couple will either reach out to us or download one of the several free brochures on our website, after which we will contact them to introduce ourselves and have a chat about their requirements, how far along in the planning process they are, and basically learn what their basic idea of a dream wedding is. We will mention the prices of our packages during the call but afterwards, assuming the couple are interested, we will put together quote package specific to them. A few days later we contact the couple again to discuss the quote and any concerns they may have. This is where the booking process will begin. Between the quote and the booking there may be a site visit, or the couple may come down to one of our open weekends to meet us in person and see the tents! At the point of booking a 50% deposit is taken, and then the real fun begins! We have multiple phone calls in the lead up to the event; we will design a floorplan and adapt it as we go dependent on ideas from the couple and suggestions of our own; we will invite them to our open weekends to get the finer details down in person and introduce the couple to our recommended suppliers. If the couple wants, we will guide them through every step of planning an outdoor wedding; ensuring they have power, facilities, caterers and any other suppliers they need.

How do you create an ambiance in a marquee?

With features such as our Fire Pits, Our Chandeliers, Our Rustic Ladder, Our Chill Out Furniture and more creating an incredible atmosphere and ambience in our tents is effortless - and on top of that we strive to give every couple a full day to decorate their tent before the wedding, so they can decorate it as they wish and turn it into their own dream wedding venue!

What is your favourite design of marquee and why?

We love our Nordic Tipis; because of the incredibly high quality, their background in the roots of the Sami people in Swedish Lapland, and quite simply their beauty!
