Owen & Carla are a husband and wife team who are passionate about helping you create the perfect setting for your big day or event.

Coastal Tents was born after Carla & Owen’s own tipi wedding. Their love of the sea and the Jurassic Coast inspired them to set up the company on the Isle of Purbeck. Their blank canvas (literally!) tipis and sailcloth marquees provide you with a blank canvas so you can design a wedding that is personal to you – but with options to add all kinds of beautiful things to your tent, from wooden bars, doorways, festoon lighting and colourful paper lanterns.

Coastal Tents pride themselves on offering a personal service to make sure your wedding is everything you dreamed of.

Recommended venues for situating your wedding tipi include Purbeck Valley Farmhouse, Harry Warren House, Southover House and Smedmore House, as well as other favourite Dorset and Hampshire wedding venues.

Coastal Tents arranged [our] tipis, toilets and lighting. They were superb from the first moment. It’s quite scary planning a wedding in a field, with no electric or facilities. Their vision, competence and professionalism made it so much easier. They also knew a lot of the other suppliers / venue which also helped things to run smoothly. Couldn’t recommend them enough. ~ English Wedding couple Laura and Dicky
