The most experienced tipi 'tentists' operating in Wiltshire and surrounding counties
A fierce attention to detail
Beautifully designed and hand-selected range of event furniture and lighting
Having designed and built hundreds of tipi weddings across the South West over the past five years, we pride ourselves in being the most experienced tipi tentists in the area - constructing tipis with a fierce attention to detail and very high standards.
We understand that planning an outdoor event is new to most people, and that when combined with the pressures of planning your own wedding, it can be rather daunting. This is why we have an in-house event planner (called Matt) to guide you along the way. From securing a good venue and advising on the more technical aspects of events in tents, to lighting design and detailed floor plans, he's there to make the process a smooth one.
The range of furniture, lighting and accessories that we offer has been hand-picked, and in many cases handmade, with design in mind. This is because we like to offer items that not only complement the Scandinavian tipis themselves, but that also can't be found anywhere else.
Get in touch if you have any questions or if you'd like a detailed quote and floorplan proposal. We can then organise a site visit to meet you and discuss your vision further. The tipis are wonderfully different and quite often the best way to understand their full potential is to meet in person, armed with an iPad full of photos and floor plans, and draw up some floor plans with you.
"Simon, Matt and the Buffalo Tipi team were fantastic from start to finish. They took the time to really understand our requirements to ensure they provided the perfect set up and nothing was too much trouble. They were responsive, thorough in planning the setup (including different weather options), offered great advice, and their open days were a great way to see the tipis in action. During the week of the actual event they were fab – arrived when agreed, flexible in set up as the weather developed and generally a pleasure to have around. Not only was the service faultless and the kit top notch, but of the four tipi companies we contacted initially they were also the most reasonable. I only wish we could do it all again and can’t wait to find another excuse to hire some tipis! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them – thank you Buffalo ☺"

"Simon, Matt and the team at Buffalo Tipi were absolutely amazing throughout the whole year of wedding planning. The forecast for ours was super changeable right up until the morning of the it with really high winds. They had all sorts of contingency plans and even drove past to check up on it on the morning of the wedding. We felt like they really cared about the event going well. Also their light package that comes with the tipis is incredible - highly recommend adding the disco ball!"

"When we saw Buffalo Tipis set up at a local farm we just knew they were the perfect setting for our wedding and we were certainly not disappointed. Simon, Tom and the crew were so helpful from start to finish. We had a vision of how we wanted the tipis to be set up and they helped us bring that vision to reality, including even rigging up a disco ball in the barn next to the tipis! The team setting up and taking down the tipis were extremely professional, efficient and reliable. On the day the tipis looked absolutely fantastic. We were lucky enough to have good weather and so were able to have the sides up the whole way round on one of the tipis which looked stunning and created a lovely connection between the adjacent barn and horsebox bar. Thank you Simon, Tom and team for helping us create the most beautiful wedding day!"

"Exceptional service from start to finish. After shopping around a few Tipi suppliers, Buffalo were the most competitive on price and the sharpest on communication. Simon was hugely accommodating to any requests we had, offering an unrivaled level of service and professionalism. We organised our wedding from the other side of the world in New Zealand, and Simon made us feel like we were down the road in the UK. Couldn't have been happier!"
