Are any table decorations included?
Wedding décor is so personal to each bride, that we decided, to leave this to you. We do have a growing number of images from past weddings to give you inspiration that you can view in our gallery. Of course, you’ll get access to the Tipi with enough time to be able to decorate the tables and Tipis in your own personal style.
Are you licenced to hold wedding ceremonies?
Ferry Farm does allow for wedding ceremonies to happen at the Tipis. Many other venues, such as Hackthorn Hall, are located incredibly close (a short walk in most cases) to a church or a venue licensed to carry out ceremonies.
Can I hire your Tipi’s for a Corporate event?
Of course! Our Tipis are regularly used for corporate events. This is because Tipis are incredibly versatile and are a great addition to any outdoor corporate event.
Can I hire your Tipis for a private party?
Of course! Tipis can be used for more than just weddings. We regularly hire out our Tipis for private parties.
Can I hire your Tipis for a public event?
Of course! We already hire our Tipis out as an event venue or bars for a wealth of public and private events.
Can I supply my own lighting and/or decorations?
Yes! We would be more than happy for you to supply your own style to the tipis! The great thing about them is they are unique and can reflect your personality. The more ideas you have for them the better! Just let us know your thoughts and we’ll see what can do to help.
Can I use my own venue?
You can! We travel! Whilst we have some amazing venues, we do understand though that some couples are lucky enough to have a large garden or paddock, or are friends with a farmer or landowner who has space. As part of the booking process, we make sure we do a venue visit with you to make sure the Tipis will fit, and there is sufficient access.
Can we bring our own alcohol?
Sorry guys! We do ask that if we are responsible for the bar, that we are the only suppliers of alcohol. In return, we aim to keep our prices as similar to pub prices as possible for you. We want to make sure we keep all the guests safe, and also monitor underage drinking, meaning we take our alcohol licence very seriously.
Can you supply my photographer?
Yes! We have met some amazing wedding suppliers who have a particular eye for capturing the best style and detail from a Tipi wedding.
Do they come with lighting?
Yes! We make sure the Tipis are supplied with lighting as standard. Each pole has a string of lights and they look amazing in the evening. The dance Tipi also comes with coloured uplighting as standard when you hire the dance floor package, and the glitter ball reflects light all around the Tipi for some great evening shots!
How early can we set up?
If you were to have a weekend wedding, then we will aim to have set up and ready on a Thursday evening or first thing the next day. These timings vary depending on how many Tipis are being put up. Regardless, we’ll make sure that you have plenty of time to add your decorative touches ready for your big day.
How many people can fit into the Bear Package?
With the option of adding a smaller space to the two Tipis, you can now seat 120 guests for the wedding breakfast, with room for a further 80 guests (200 in total) in the evening. The Kung can be used however you want and looks great with our campervan bar serving drinks, or our campervan photobooth providing the entertainment!

With these three tipis linked together, you can now seat 130-150 guests for the wedding breakfast, with room for a further 50 guests (200 in total) in the evening.
How many people can fit into the Buffalo Package?
This 2 Tipi option would allow you to seat between 60-80 guests on our long benches and tables and will accommodate up to a maximum of 180 guests (total of seated day, and additional evening guests!)
How many people can fit into the Hawk Package?
This one-tipi option you have chosen will seat between 48-64 guests for the marriage breakfast on our long benches and tables and will accommodate up to 80 guests (a total number of eating and evening guests!).
I don’t have a venue for my Tipi, what do I do?
Don’t worry! We’ve partnered up with some amazing venues in a range of different settings throughout Lincolnshire to give you a crazy amount of choice. Choose from the Rural setting of Ferry Farms to the walled gardens of Hackthorn Hall. What’s best about one of our venues though is that everything comes included with them!
I think I’ll need more space, can I get an extra Tipi?
Yes! All weddings are different, and if you have a large group of friends and extended family, then the tipi wedding is definitely for you! The tipis link together to provide you with as big a space as you need! As a rule of thumb, each tipi can seat around 60 people for a wedding breakfast. But we always advise having extra space should the weather take a turn for the worst. We can discuss your plans for the day, and tailor the right set up just for you.
Should I get a Marquee or Tipi?
Tipi every time! But we might be biased. Yet, we truly believe there is no better place to have a wedding than in a Tipi! There’s something that’s exciting and adventurous about being pitched in a Tipi under the stars, sharing one of the most important moments of your life.
