Where can I hire a Tipi for my outdoor wedding, festival or corporate event?
By the very nature of our classic campervan glitter bar and outdoor photobooth services, we tend to work at a lot of outdoor wedding venues like in our Fiesta Fields blog post last month. We are often parked up by fabulous tipis – be that weddings, festivals or corporate hospitality events.
We wanted to tell you all about our friends at Canvas and Light, because they have a gorgeous company that stands out because of their off-white or cream canvas – a fresh alternative to the traditional, tan canvas tipi style.
Canvas and Light are a Surrey based company that do tipi hire for outdoor wedding, festival or corporate events.
Operating across Surrey, Kent, Sussex, Hampshire and Berkshire.
Canvas and Light create stunning event spaces for your wedding, special celebration, festival or corporate event. Their beautiful giant hat tipis in cream canvas, matched with quality furnishings, gorgeous lighting set ups and all their little styling extras will give you a one-of-a-kind venue for your most special day.
Canvas and Light’s off-white or cream canvas is quite different to a tan canvas tipi. They love the fresh and natural light this gives inside, and so will photographers.
The modular nature of a tipi gives lots of flexibility when creating a space suitable for various guests numbers. The solid wooden poles, cream canvas and neutral flooring provide a stunning blank canvas.
About Canvas and Light
This tipi hire company are a husband and wife team. They celebrated their own wedding in a field in 2015 and that set them on a course into the world of outdoor weddings and events.
With their background in outdoor events, they have a wealth of experience and a fantastic little black book of fab contacts (like us at Buttercup Bus Vintage Campers!)
If you would like support with any other aspect of your day, they are available to help. From styling and on the day coordination, to helping you find the right caterer or photographer. Canvas and Light can take care of the dull but all-important generator and toilets. They can even help with full coordination.
There are two sizes of tipi to hire, the Stratus (or giant hat) and the Cirrus (or Kungsornen). They are super versatile and can be used as single standalone tipis or joined together in various configurations. For example, 2 Stratus tipis, when joined together, will comfortably seat 90 people and 3 Stratus tipis can accommodate up to 160 guests, including space for a dance floor. The Cirrus makes a great little addition and can provide space for additional seating or to create a cosy chill out area with soft seating and a bar.
Another great thing about the Stratus is that each side can be lifted, so for a summer wedding or event, they are perfect for letting the outside in and allowing a bit of breeze to flow through. On a colder day you can have more sides down, add in a fireplace and/or heaters and you have a really toasty space to celebrate in.
Thanks to the height of the structures and the smoke flaps at the top, tipis can safely accommodate an open fireplace, providing a special atmosphere within the tent and often proving to be the focal point of any event. Marshmallows and skewers at the ready.
Stunning props and extras to add to when you hire a Tipi for a wedding festival
Canvas and Light have lots of other useful items for hire to help complete the look.
For example, a small Nimbus mini tipi (see picture below), also in off-white. This is a great little tipi to offer cover for an outside bar. Or add their Moroccan pouffes and fairy lights for a sweet little outdoor chill out area.
The festival flags, vintage oxblood red vintage Chesterfields, a mini ceremony tipi, rustic bar, shepherds crooks, festoons, tiki torches and barrels all add the perfect touch!
