Maka Tipi is a boutique tipi and stretch tent company that creates amazing spaces and events with our alternative structures. We specialise in tipi weddings, corporate or brand events, birthdays and special occasions and festivals. With our stunning and unique venues, we can help you to make your event the most memorable and inspiring experience it could ever be.
We are a family run business with a strong team that has over 30 years experience within the events industry supporting us.
We strive to deliver that personal and intimate level of service that we believe every customer should receive and also a more refined service for those looking for that little bit of luxury. We felt that the current one size fits all approach didn’t work and so took the decision to create Maka Tipi to provide our clients with a totally bespoke service to inspire them to imagine and devise the events that they truly want, not something bought off the shelf.
As a boutique supplier, we aim to achieve the highest quality finishes and offer something special and something different. Because we supply tipis and Bedouin tents, it’s likely that we have a structure that is going to be right for your individual needs. We’ll also go that extra mile to make your event memorable and magical. It could be some luxury wood fired hot tubs, a bell tent village, bespoke decorations created just for your event or a wedding web site built and maintained by us. Whatever your imagination has conceived, we will endeavor to make it happen.
We also use lots of rustic, handmade and vintage elements for our interiors and look for ways to recycle and re-purpose objects to fit in with our designs, making sure that our business is sustainable and eco friendly. Our carbon-offsetting program will begin shortly, where we will be planting trees to offset our carbon usage for every event that we do.
We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality service and putting our clients at the heart of everything that we do.
Every event is unique in its own way, which is why we offer a completely bespoke service, so you are in control and can choose which elements are right for you and your big day.
Currently, we have some of the only white giant hat tipis in the UK and they are absolutely stunning!
We have a limit of 2 events per week, which means we can really spend time ensuring that your venue is built and styled to the highest standards. It also allows us more time to spend with you, discovering what you want from your venue and to action any last minute additions or alterations.
We have a range of lovely vintage, re-cycled and hand made accessories to help style your venue such as rustic bars, chesterfield sofas or some vintage trunks.
Alternatively, we offer a decoration and prop build service should you wish to totally personalise your event and make it truly unique.
In addition, for our brides and grooms, we can build your own personal wedding web site, where your guests can discover everything they need to know about your special day. We will also maintain the site for you and update any information at your request.
We love the outdoors and we love our work. Seeing happy clients, chatting to them, planning and building these wonderful and gorgeous tents puts a smile on our faces. This is why we do what we do and why we pride ourselves in delivering the best service possible.
We specialise in Giant Kata tipis and the smaller Kung tipis for our events. They are Nordic in their origin and more than capable of handling the British elements. We also have some of the only white Giant Kata tipis in the UK, which are simply gorgeous for weddings!
Our other tents are Bedouin stretch tents, which are amazing and beautiful structures. Their versatility means that they can be used on many different surfaces and can even be erected around objects and buildings.
