Terminology - There are a lot of different styles of tent out there. We have a varied selection so that we can help as many of you lovely people as possible. It has become fairly normal for anything other than a Marquee to be called a Teepee. Now although this isn't technically correct we understand that it can be confusing. This very business of ours started with a single Teepee which we hired to friends and neighbours. The whole wedding industry was crying out for something new that couples could express themselves in a more personal way. Teepee hire really started to take off and businesses have popped up all over the country to meet with demand. So why don't we have Large Event Teepees? Well, for a number of much as we like them there are lots of companies out there supplying them. We decided to concentrate on Yurts as our flagship structure. We spent a long time researching them and finding the right manufacturer. Yurts fitted with our ecological ethos and the materials used in making them, we felt were more sustainable than the Teepees, which were available for wedding and event hire. We certainly aren't knocking Event Teepees, we just love our traditional canvas Teepee. Although smaller it is still a great addition to any wedding or celebration. So Let's Start Planning! Planning your outdoor wedding in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, or Northamptonshire has never been easier. Contact us today to discuss your yurt hire or marquee hire needs. Our friendly team is here to listen, offer advice, and turn your wedding dreams into a reality. With FM Tents, you can focus "you" while we handle the rest.
