Our Story

Our Story


Firefly Tipis Ltd was founded in 2017 and is the brainchild of Amie, Chris and Nick. The inspiration behind Firefly was to veer away from conventional white marquees and create a warm and homely ambiance outside the closed walled spaces. Firefly Tipis is a family-run business, our vision and philosophy stem from our passion and penchant for creativity.

How it all started

Our story began when Amie and Chris got engaged and started planning their wedding.
Knowing that they didn’t want a traditional church wedding, Amie and Chris began researching alternative venues. “We knew what we didn’t want, but, finding what we did want was a little trickier. We were looking for a venue to suit us as a couple…relaxed, quirky and fun.”

In the end, they fell in love with Cley Windmill on the North Norfolk coast. Due to the growing guest list, Amie and Chris soon ran out of space inside the windmill. To avoid having to change their venue, the couple made the outdoor space work for them!

“We started looking at different marquees and tents. A white marquee just didn’t suit us and wouldn’t deliver the atmosphere we wanted to create. We wanted our wedding to be different, rustic with a relaxed feel. We wanted it to feel like a big party with close friends and family…It just so happened we would be getting married too!”

A tipi ticked all those boxes, that’s where the tipi love began – with their very own tipi wedding. “WOW! It was everything we imagined and more.”

Venue not working for you? Then make the outdoor space work!

From our own experience, we know how a tipi can truly create a one-of-a-kind, unique and magical feel to any event. Using our creativity and vision, we want to help everyone experience the same feeling we did. 

Firefly Tipis, a family run business based in Norfolk.

As a family we have collectively been involved in the wedding and events industry for 24 years. Our passion for creativity is driven by current trends and the vision of our clients.

We don’t conform to the boring old and static venues, instead, we create fine-tuned, aesthetically alluring and intricately designed tipi arrangements that you’ll remember and talk about for years to come.

Our tipis can be set up on lush velvety grass and under the magnificent glittery sky. Windblown curtains, tingling wind chimes and the glow of firepit flames, spread a soothing warmth inside.

Whether a wedding, party or a corporate night out, our tipis are the ultimate embodiment of a truly magical and heavenly ambiance.
