For us, a Yorkshire Tipi wedding business it has been extremely challenging. A challenge that we have rose to and are delighted to say that we will be delivering Tipi weddings throughout 2021 and beyond. However, the reality is, a lot of wedding businesses won't make it to 2021.
We as a company have decided to break our silence!
Throughout Covid 19, we have been keeping our social media pretty positive, head over to our Instagram to see what we have been posting!. However, these are some facts that we have had to overcome as a wedding business in 2020:
