About

Civil engineer Luke Hasell and events coordinator Scott Fearn first met during 2007, when they were organising interdependent aspects of a charity music festival in the Chew Valley Lake area. Combining the best of their abilities, they went on to establish their own company 'Tipi Events', which hires out and even produces to order bespoke, traditionally-inspired tipis on request. The company uses the current site, on Luke's farm at Herons Green Bay as their HQ and base of operations.

Chew Valley Lake is a large and tranquil expanse of reservoir, and sits beneath the northern fringe of the Mendips below Bristol. This beautifully still water is the fifth largest artificial lake in the UK, and besides supplying much of Bristol and the surrounding region with its essential drinking supplies, provides a calming place to visit for many locals.

The Tipis

Setup the perfect 'festival-style' atmosphere with these handmade, traditionally-inspired, simple yet versatile wonders of engineering. Tipi Events' tents are not your standard marquees. Their modular design allows for a much greater size by attaching to other tipis.

Two Stratus 72s - seating up to 120 guests

The Chew Valley Lake Tipis provide two linked 'Giant Hat' Stratus 72 tipis as the minimum basis of all hires at the site, with the option to take advantage of the tents' modular design and add more if you want to accommodate more guests. Depending on your desired configuration, the space can seat up to 120 guests, including space for a dance floor.

Tipi Events' Cirrus 40 is a 8.5-metre diameter tipi, also called the Kungsornen, can be added to your Stratus 72s to provide space for a bar, dancefloor or chillout space.

Although a wedding of about 120-150 guests is typical at the site, there is space for well over 500 guests with the addition of more Stratus 72 tipis. 60 guests per Stratus 72 is about right.

Facilities, Catering and Pricing

All weddings are different, and the team at Chew Valley Tipis know this. Fortunately, they make thing a little easy by having a base package, which means that all hires must include the two Stratus 72s as standard. The following package

Example Quote - £7,815 - For 100 guests
  • Hire of the lakeside venue for 3 days (Fri-Sun)
  • Two linked Stratus 72 tipis - capacity up to 120 guests
  • Matting fabric flooring
  • Ample professional lighting
  • 13 Swedish solid pine tables (8 guests per table) and 26 benches for seating
  • 15x15 oak parquet dancefloor
  • Rotating mirror ball, fairy lights
  • Generator (pay for the fuel you use), toilet hire, fire extinguisher
Bar

If you want a bar on your big day, then Chew Valley Lake Tipi will provide you with a gorgeous unit. Due to licensing restrictions, they will also organise the staff and stock for the bar. There's a minimum spend of £2000 - this spend can be made up with corkage if you want to bring your own wine, welcome and toast drinks and bar sales of course.

Catering

The wedding breakfast itself will be provided by the venue's own in-house professional caterer, Andy Spooner, who specialises in the unique presentation of locally and ethically-sourced food.

Camping

Camping is provided in an adjacent field, where guests can bring their own tents, campervans or hire from Tipi Events' Camping Village range with all the glamping accessories provided! You can ask for gas-powered showers, and there's a BBQ on site which you can use for breakfast on the Sunday.

And of course, all setup and packdown costs are included in your quoted hire price.

What our customers say

  • Thomas

    We were very happy with the service that we received from Tip Events, the time and effort which Scott put in was amazing and we were delighted with the tents – the atmosphere they created made for a truly wonderful Wedding.

    Thank-you again for providing the tipi’s, we thought they were amazing.

  • Sophie and Paul

    We both just want to say a massive thank-you for everything you did for us. The tipi’s were just so perfect for our wedding right from the start you’ve been the perfect company to work with. The tipi’s gave the wow factor and we are still getting so many comments from people about how amazing they were and suited our theme so well.

  • Jamie and Helen

    We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of the hard work you put into our wedding on the 17th. We had such a brilliant weekend and the day itself was totally amazing. Everyone was bowled over by the tipi and it made for some wonderful photographs. It fitted in so well with the surroundings and sitting there watching the sun go down over the hills was an experience we will never forget (as was 10 men stood around the fire pit trying to get the fire going, all claiming they were experts!) Overall we just couldn’t have asked for anything more, it was a perfect day. We just can’t thank you enough for helping to make our day so special and creating a wedding that exceeded all of our dreams.
