Tipis / Wigwams
Traditional / Canvas Pole Marquees
Full Description
They provide stunning alternatives to traditional frame marquees that allow you to enjoy your chosen vista. They give you a beautiful back drop and look great in any location, from perfectly manicured lawns and gardens to lush green fields in the countryside. The beauty of Coastal Tents is the flexibility, you can style them just as you wish, whether you are looking for that laid back festival feel or a more elegant and stylish affair. The Tipis are made out of solid wooden poles grown in the cold forests of Sweden and a light tan-coloured canvas. They provide you with shade on a hot summers day or a warm and cosy atmosphere (with real log fires!) on a cold winters eve. The translucent sailcloth tent allows natural light to enhance daylight hours and glows brilliantly when lit for the evening. One of the lovely features of these tents is the panoramic sidewalls. The walls can be easily rolled up (or down) to suit your needs allowing you and your guests to enjoy your chosen view in comfort and style. Coastal Tents was founded by a husband and wife team who had a tipi wedding. They have over 7 years of experience working in the events industry ranging from Royal banquets to major sporting events. They are truly passionate about creating your perfect wedding scene and will give you a personal service to make sure your event is everything you dreamed of. They employ and work with local people and businesses, meaning they have an excellent knowledge of the area and industry links which they will share with you.
