TipiChic Ltd was realised in 2012 by owner James Calvert, James and his wife Rachel own and had ran the successful wedding transport company, Lovedubcars Ltd, that specialise in VW wedding transport with their VW campervans and classic soft top beetles.
The couple were aware that Lovedubcars Ltd was rapidly expanding but didn’t wish for Lovedubcars Ltd to grow any further for fear of it becoming something more than a family run business. Their love for all things outdoors and country initially made them consider outdoor events, and from there TipiChic Ltd was born.
James and Rachel have steadily built up their business over the last 10 years and during this time have built up a robust network of reliable contacts in the wedding industry, with the amount of weddings the couple were involved in during that time you would be hard pressed to find anyone else as experienced.
Both James & Rachel strive for TipiChic Ltd to provide nothing less than an honest, affordable and incredibly special experience for their customers. They are there for questions and assistance at almost any time and they are genuinely happy to help plan an amazing day.
TipiChic are based near Darlington, County Durham where from their base they cover the local area including all of the North East, North Yorkshire, Cumbria and Northumberland. Please ask us to quote if you wish us to travel further afield,

About our Tipis
The Stratus 72 is a beautiful, strong, completely waterproof and versatile structure.
The Tipi is constructed of natural canvas and wooden poles, Whether you want to bring the outside in, enjoying the long, hot days of summer with open sides and a glass of Pimms, or cosy up with warm furs and open fires on a snowy winters evening, our tipis are all season structures designed to stand up to the unpredictable British weather!
It’s the unique flexibility of the Giant Hat that makes it an inspiring choice for all types and sizes of event. Solid wooden poles and a light tan-coloured canvas produce a natural ambience that’s really like nothing else. Dress it up, or keep it simple, either way you can be sure to create an exciting alternative to a “white box” marquee.
Pitched on its own with “sides down” it looks like a conventional tipi; with “sides up” it resembles a giant witch’s hat. And it’s this ability to raise the sides that also makes it possible to link the tipis to each other, creating a single larger space. All manner of configurations are possible, and there’s no limit to the number of tents that can be linked together and the number of guests that would be welcome inside.
Catering tents can also be supplied if required.
