Big Chief Tipis are Wedding Awards Winners!

The past few months have been pretty amazing for the Big Chief team! We’ve received award nominations for the County Brides North West Wedding Awards, The North of England Wedding Awards, and The Wedding Industry Expert Awards for Most Popular Tent / Marquee Rental Business!


Back in March we received some very exciting news via Facebook – we had received a County Brides North West Wedding Award nomination for the Best Popup Venue, meaning our clients had voted for us – so a huge thank you to you all who did!



So, three months later, we dusted off our gladrags and high heels and headed to a glamorous night at the Imperial War Museum in Manchester along with 300 other wedding industry professionals to hear the results  of our category – of which we had been shortlisted among a couple of other long-standing businesses.


After a nail biting few hours over a three course dinner and a couple of bottles of bubbly, we are thrilled to announce that we won the award for the Best Popup Venue! As you will see below, our Big Chief & Little Chief’s reactions are priceless when our name was read out to a crowd of cheers from our Big Chief Tribe.


We want to say a huge thank you to all of our brides and grooms who voted for us and to County Brides for the award. It means an awful lot to the whole team who have put a lot of passion, determination and energy in making Big Chief what it is today and this award is proof that hard work pays off! We have loved every minute of the last 18months since we launched, and through the blood sweat and tears we have made our customer’s dreams into very happy memories.

If that isn’t enough, sometime in May we found out about our Wedding Industry Expert Award achievement… Not only had we successfully completed the nomination process for The Wedding Industry Expert Awards, but we had also won Most Popular Tent / Marquee Rental Business in the UK! Yes, that’s right, the whole of the UK! The team were totally over the moon and we couldn’t wait to share the news with all of our fantastic clients and followers on social media. The response to the award win was amazing, and we can’t thank everyone enough for taking the time to vote for Big Chief Tipis! Our award certificate is ready to be framed and hung high on the wall once the Big Chief Tipis office refurb is complete.


We will continue to be on Cloud 9 for the next few days and our Award wins will definitely help us to power on with the wedding season.

We can’t wait for what the future holds – BRING IT ON!
