Sussex Tipi Hire
Tipi Interiors

We offer round tables, long wooden rustic tables and standard trestles tables. Our round tables are 5ft 6” in diameter and seat up to 10 guests. Our long wooden rustic tables seat up to 6 guests on chairs and up to 8 guests on benches. We also offer 3ft round cake tables.

There’s nothing stopping you from having a combination of trestle tables and round tables – often long trestle tables together in a line work well as a top table.

chairs and benches
Tentario Furnishings

Our Cheltenham banqueting chairs, made from natural beech are in keeping with the other natural elements of the Tipis and can be paired with round or long tables. The relatively neutral colour allows you to add you own individual decoration to if you would like. They come complete with an ivory seat pad and can easily be stacked if you need to clear some away to create more space after your wedding meal.

Our wooden benches are paired with our long wooden rustic tables and can seat 3 guests comfortably and 4 guests cosily! They’re ideal for more of an informal vibe.

Wedding Tipi Hire

Our woven polypropylene matting is fitted in the Tipis over a waterproof membrane sheeting. This helps prevent any moisture from coming up from the ground below and keeps you and your guests’ feet nice and dry! We lay this matted flooring right up to the edges of the Tipis to maximise floorspace and the tightness of the weave ensures high-heeled shoes do not get caught or stuck in the matting.

All of our matting is cleaned after every event to ensure the highest quality of finish.


Our standard lighting sets have been built into the same wood as the Tipis so they’re subtle and sleek and not an eye-sore. The spotlights can be controlled on a dimmer switch to allow you to set the mood and can be controlled independently to the other lighting effects that you may have within the Tipis.

The soft, neutral white lights compliment the beige canvas of the Tipis at night.

fairy lights

Fairy lights really do add that magical touch to our Tipis! We strongly recommend that they’re spiralled down the poles around a dancefloor but if you’d prefer them elsewhere. it’s entirely up to you.

When the sun goes down, they look magnificent along the open brim of the Tipis, creating a spectacular outline and offering a great photo opportunity.

Definitely our most popular item to be added to a booking. You can never have enough fairy lights!


Our dancefloor is of the highest quality and one of the best on the market. Manufactured with original Karndean vinyl flooring panels, it’s strong, durable and flexible, making it ideal for those slightly uneven sites. With an Auckland oak colour and a soft, gold edging, our dancefloors look modern and sleek and compliment the colours of the Tipi canvas and the woven matting.

We offer dancefloors in a variety of sizes to suit your event. A must-have for all events to ensure your guests have somewhere to party until the early hours!

mirror ball

Our 20inch mirror ball fits neatly and rotates in the peak of our Tipis. Combined with its individual spotlights, it creates the perfect party atmosphere after dark.

Highly recommended above a dancefloor with accompanying fairy lights.


Our fireplaces are rustic, sturdy and ideal for dining around or as a focal point in a reception Tipi. Not only do they give off some nice heat, they create the perfect atmosphere for any party or wedding and can also be used outside of the Tipis if the weather permits.

A must-have centrepiece for any event, large or small that is bound to get your guests talking. Just don’t forget the marshmallows!


Once the sun goes down and you need a little extra light outside of the Tipis, our floodlights provide the perfect solution.

They are ideal for lighting up trees, creating spectacular backdrops for the Tipis or can be used in a more practical way, such as lighting areas out the back of the Tipis for your caterers or to help your guests find the toilets.

relaxed lounge

Should any of your guests need to take a break from dancing, our relaxed lounge offers the perfect chill-out area. Comprising of cubed bean bag seats and rustic low-level tables, this works really well to the side of dancefloors, in a reception area near the bar or just in any quiet corner.

bar unit

We can provide a rustic, wooden bar in keeping with the Tipis. This comes complete with built in storage shelves and ample serving space.

This can be used inside or outside of the Tipis, all you need to do is provide the drinks!

matted walkway

Matted walkways can provide a great entrance way for you and your guests leading up to the Tipis and look particularly good at night with festoon lights either side.

They can also be used to create a pathway to facilities such as toilets or outdoor catering stands.

catering tent

Our 6m x 6m catering tent can be tucked away behind the Tipis with access via a zip door and is supplied with matted flooring to match the interior of the Tipis and lighting. A covered link can also be provided to join the two structures together in case of wet weather.


Our woolly, tartan blankets are a lovely little accessory and are ideal for those guests who might be sat a little further from the fire!

These come as standard as part of our relaxed lounge.


Our rustic wooden easel is made from the same wood as our Tipis and therefore fits in perfectly with the look of the Tipis. The A1 hessian pin board that sits on the easel is ideal for seating plans, bar menus etc.

cake table

Something as important as your wedding cake, needs its own pride of place! Our 3ft round cake table is ideal for showing it off and often works well positioned centrally in your Tipi set-up.


Our stage comes in 8ft x 4ft sections, up to a maximum size of 12ft x 8ft. This is ideal for most band sizes and adds that real performance feel to your evening entertainment.

high chairs

If you have any really young children attending, we can supply highchairs if needed.

coat rail

A handy little accessory to have when your guests first arrive at the Tipis. Our coat rail comes with 50 hangers and is easily tucked out of the way, to the side of the Tipis.

festoon lights

Ideal for lighting walkways or draping between the peaks of our Tipis, festoon lights really do complete the look! Not only do they offer up fantastic photo opportunities at night, you can turn these on and surprise your guests for that real WOW factor!

Those finer details – we know that for some of you a large part of the enjoyment of your event is planning the interior décor of the Tipis, from table decorations to bunting. The Tipis look stunning as they are but really are a blank canvas for you to put your own stamp on. Equally, we know that for others the decoration side of things can be more of a burden so we work with a number of great companies who can take care of this for you, while you sit back and just worry about who to invite!
