Luminate Events are a fantastic lighting company who can help with all the technical & electrical requirements for your big day. Their trained staff (who are super lovely) have worked on events of all sizes from small dinner parties to huge weddings and stage shows and they always make each venue look amazing – however with the tipis, they take them to the next level of “WOW-ness”!

We have worked with Luminate Events on all of our Open Weekends and at events we have had with other venues – our Big Chief has even booked them for her big birthday coming up because she is so impressed by what they do. Our tipis come with fairy lights, which make the tipis look stunning both during the day and night, but if you want to add that extra X-Factor to your tipis, then Luminate can install a variety of lighting, both inside and out, to transform them into a multicoloured dream world.
