"I booked an 18m sperry tent for my wedding costing nearly £7k. The team put it up, at which point we realised it was absolutely filthy. Marks all over the walls and ceilings. In addition the tables were broken, dirty, uneven and the solid floor we paid £800 extra for was missing supports and uneven. To boot, the company refused to refund my money and take the tent away same day so that I could organise for a clean tent from a more reputable company to be arranged and not ruin my wedding with less than 2 days to go."
"We liked the fact we could book a package with Timber and Canvas and know exactly what we would be paying unlike many other companies where everything seemed to be an extra add on. From our initial contact the team were very helpful and answered all our queries with helpful suggestions. We had a pre-site visit which put us at ease knowing our chosen layout would work for us. On the day of set up (and take down) the guys were amazing very polite and did everything we asked. The Tipi's looked absolutely amazing and certainly had the wow factor when our guests arrived! We would definitely recommend these guys to everyone. Professional service and really friendly at a competitive price too."
"Timber and canvas honestly made our wedding the best day we could have imagined. All the staff when booking with them were so helpful and any ideas we had they made happen. They arrived a few days before the wedding to set up with no problems and after the wedding removed it all which took no time at all. The tipi's just looked amazing and everyone at the wedding couldn't believe how beautiful they are. They stayed warm with the heater provided and the fire was definitely the feature. We had 19 children at the wedding, the fire was safe for them to be around. The kids just loved the open space to run about.Just stunning and cant thank timber and canvas enough for all the help they gave making our wedding day the most spectacular day we had dreamed off. Such a good customer service and would recommend for any special occasion. xxx"
"I don't even know where to start with this incredible company.
I came across Timber and Canvas when I was searching for unique wedding venues, and well... the tipi's couldn't have encapsulated my vision more if they tried!
I then started to get quotes back from different companies - as you do! It began to look like a tipi wedding wasn't going to be possible, until I got my quote back from Timber & Canvas. Not only were they the most professional/personable looking company, but they were the cheapest! The absolute dream for a bride with big dreams and a smaller budget!
So, I got in touch with the team, who just took my vision and ran with it. Made it perfect. Gave me ideas and inspiration I didn't even know I wanted, but on the day, I wouldn't have been without, it's such a pleasure to have a team care about your day in such a personalised way.
I was probably a nightmare customer and as many brides do, I wanted everything to be perfect - they absolutely delivered, and they did so with smiles, ease and enthusiasm. When you're organising what you want to be the perfect day - it really helps to have suppliers that are on board with your ideas and get just as excited as you do!
Not only that, but as a side note - a few months before our wedding, I lost my brother unexpectedly. Now, I wasn't in contact for a while and just sent an apology email explaining the situation... a few days later, I got a delivery of flowers at my door. I know, it's only a small thing - but you tell me how many of your suppliers would do something that meaningful and thoughtful to you as a client?
So - to cut a long review short. Timber and Canvas, you are an outstanding company. From enquiry to delivery, set up and take down, table plans and furniture hire, you truly excel yourselves and are totally and utterly wonderful people. It would be an absolute pleasure to hire you for any future events I have, and I will be dishing out recommendations left, right and centre!
Massive love & thanks, Erin & Ben"
"T&C provided a large tipi complex for our daughter's wedding reception in August 2017 at Newhailes House, Musselburgh. They had not worked at this site before and the site hadn't previously hosted an event of this kind. The location chosen for the tipis was excellent, but presented significant challenges because of the site layout and in particular its proximity to an historic building. The T&C team did an excellent job in assessing and dealing with the challenges the site presented and their liaison with us as clients, with the site owners and with other parties involved (e.g. generator suppliers) was very good throughout. They were also extremely receptive to our wishes for the event (especially regarding decor) and made numerous constructive suggestions to help us get the best out of the tipis and the site. Their work on site setting up and dismantling the tipis was extremely efficient and they were very flexible in working with us and others (such as caterers) who were involved in setting up for the wedding reception. T&C personnel were pleasant and helpful to deal with throughout and my only reservation relates to some difficulties and delay in obtaining plans of the proposed layout from T&C for others to work with. This was not a serious problem and was I suspect indicative of the pressure of work they were facing during the run-up to our event. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending them. Tipi hire is not cheap, but the end result was exactly what we wanted and fully justified the expenditure involved."
"Right from the word go, Timber and Canvas were a delight to deal with, putting our minds at rest during what was sometimes a stressful period of wedding planning!!
Having what we initially thought may be a somewhat tricky site for our two tipi set up, Marty put our minds at rest and assured us our plans would be good to go so on went the planning.
The guys at timber and canvas turned up two days early so as to catch the best of the Scottish weather forecast and what a slick and well drilled operation!! Before we knew it, the Tipis were up in all of their glory and we were able to get stuck in to decorating them – a perfect blank canvas to let your imagination go wild and create the perfect back drop for any occasion.
We were all blown away when we first stepped in to the tents, not to mention the reactions and comments when our guests arrived and the tipis fairy lights were twinkling in all of their glory.
Until we came across Timber and Canvas on the internet, we never imagined it would be possible to have our wedding ceilidh overlooking the sea and mountains in the remote West highlands of Scotland but boy didn’t the Tipi’s look their part. The guys at Timber and Canvas really did help to make our dreams a reality.
We couldn’t recommend Marty and the team highly enough and we hope we can invite the guys up North for another Tipi celebration in years to come!!"
"They arrived a day early so we would have longer to set up the tipi for our wedding. They were friendly and polite and did an excellent job. The site manager explained how things worked very clearly."
"After entering the 'Win a Tipi Wedding competition' and not winning - we'd already fallen in love with the idea of a tipi at our 'festival style wedding reception'. As a really lovely surprise we received a discount voucher for the tipi's and we booked!
The installation & dismantling of the tipis was so smooth, I didn't even need to stay which meant I could get on with the other wedding prep - given it was only a couple of days away."
"Professional and great communication. Answered all my questions and set up without fuss. All documentation and safety elements also very clear and organised, helping to make our event run smoothly. We have used Timber and Canvas a few time and hope to use them again in the future."
"Awesome from beginning to end! They are such lovely people, full of advice and great ideas..it was like dealing with friends rather than suppliers.
We could not recommend Timber & Canvas more highly - they were a pleasure to work with and wish we could just do it all over again :)
Thank you to all of the lovely team for making our dream wedding a reality!"
"The wide variety of choice with the different packages was brilliant. We had a lot of things for our DIY wedding all within a package that Jude helped us put together. She was extremely helpful not only with the tipi but also other elements of the wedding that we had forgotten to think about as we organised the whole thing ourselves. The quality of the tipis were fantastic, every one of our guests commented on them and asked where we had got them from. They really are a talking point and a crowd pleaser!"
"The crew at Timber and Canvas were amazing from the start. They were quick to respond with all my questions (and I had a lot of them) and they were always so lovely with their replies. The guys that put up the tipi were really nice and considering it was awful weather that day they still smiled and made it look better than I ever imagined. Marty was always on the other end of the phone and even if something needed resolving it was done with no bother. Our wedding was better than we ever imagined and the tipi was absolutely stunning. I wish we could do it all over again. Thank you so so so much to Timber and Canvas, I would recommend them to anyone."
"I used Timber & canvas Tipi for my daughters 1st birthday party in January and I can't recommend them enough. So easy to deal with from start to finish and the tipi looked stunning. I first sent out for quotation to 5 different tipi companies and only 2 replied and from the first time speaking to Jude I had made up my mind. Their advice on heating internal mood lighting and décor was spot on as it completely transformed how the tipi looked in the evening. I have had marquee parties in the past and was a little sceptical at first as I wasn’t sure if it would be big enough for 200 people, size was perfect I don’t think I would have marquee again. I stood by the door as guest walked in every signal person was like WOW!
Their staff were very professional, pleasant and courteous when building and dismantling. I would certainly use them again in the future.
Thank you so much Jude and staff for all your help. I will forward the photos and the drone footage in the next couple of days"
