JUDGING PANEL

Wedding Marquee Supplier Judges

Marquees have a unique atmosphere. Set up, temporarily, for a single occasion, they are a space apart from normal life, embodying the specialness of an event. In addition, marquees are very flexible. In a marquee, anything is possible: long, square, L-shaped; romantic, classical, themed…. Bride and groom can stamp their character on an event in any way they choose.

Wedding Marquee Supplier services included but not limited to Marquees, Tipis & Tents.

Love Tipis was founded in 2014 after falling in love with the elegant Nordic tipis in rural Scandinavia. We wanted to share the magic and beauty they can bring to any special occasion, so we built this company named for exactly how we feel!


Combining an eclectic mix of backgrounds including events, construction, live music, engineering, interiors and design, as well as a commitment to going above and beyond to ensure every event is completed to the highest standards, our team is dedicated to creating perfect, unique events for every single one of our clients.

Stewart Kemp:

Before he ever met a tipi, Stewart trained and worked as a cameraman for the BBC, then spent over ten years designing, hand-crafting and selling unique furniture pieces.  

These experiences have created an eye for detail and beauty, an understanding of set design, natural craftsmanship and creativity that guarantees stunning events.
