String Lights

String lights are a classic and versatile lighting option that can be used in a variety of ways to add a touch of magic to your tipi wedding venue. Drape them along the ceiling, wrap them around poles, or use them to create a twinkling backdrop for your ceremony or reception. String lights are a popular choice for weddings, as they create a warm and inviting glow that sets the tone for a romantic and whimsical atmosphere.

Create a Stunning Entrance

Your entrance sets the tone for your entire wedding, and it's an opportunity to create a lasting impression on your guests. Use lighting to create a stunning entrance to your tipi, such as by using a canopy of fairy lights or creating a dramatic archway with lanterns, or flowers for a boho wedding look. A stunning entrance will not only wow your guests but will also make for great photos that you'll cherish for years to come.


Lanterns are a charming and elegant lighting option that can add a romantic and whimsical touch to your bohemian wedding. Hang them from the apex of the tipi, use them to line the aisle or scatter them throughout to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Lanterns are a great way to add a pop of colour to your bohemian themed wedding, and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit any style or theme.

Coloured Lighting

If you want to add a pop of colour to your tipi wedding, consider using coloured lighting fixtures. Coloured lighting can be used to create a specific mood or theme, and it can be especially effective when used in combination with other lighting techniques. Use coloured lighting to accentuate specific areas of your wedding venue, such as your dance floor or bar area, or to create a dramatic backdrop for your ceremony.

Incorporate Chandeliers for a Formal Look

Chandeliers are a great choice if you're looking for a more formal and sophisticated lighting option. Choose from crystal or wrought iron designs to create a stunning focal point that will elevate the look of your tipi and impress your guests. Chandeliers are a timeless lighting option that will add a touch of elegance and glamour to your tipi wedding.

Star tip: Why not get creative with your chandelier and create a starry chandelier of paper star lanterns? This will create a beautiful focal point and talking point for your wedding guests.

Uplighting to Highlight Your Tipi

Uplighting is a popular technique that can help you highlight the details of your tipi and create a truly magical atmosphere. By placing lighting fixtures on the ground and directing the light upwards, you can accentuate the architecture of your tipi, illuminate your floral arrangements, and create interesting shadows and textures on the walls. Uplighting is a great way to create a more dramatic and intimate atmosphere, and it works especially well in larger tipi spaces.


Candles are a classic and romantic lighting option that can add a touch of warmth and intimacy to your tipi wedding. Use them to line the aisle, create a centrepiece, or scatter them throughout your reception area for a soft and inviting glow. Candles are a simple yet elegant lighting option that will add a touch of romance and intimacy to your tipi wedding.

Make the Most of the Outdoors

Finally, don't forget to make the most of your outdoor space! Use lighting to extend the party outside. Creating a magical atmosphere for your outdoor space is just as important as the interior of your tipi. Lanterns, fairy lights, and uplighting can be used to create a warm and inviting outdoor space for your guests to relax and enjoy the festivities. Hang string lights from trees, use lanterns to line your walkways, or create a romantic glow with candles. By incorporating lighting into your outdoor space, you'll create a cohesive look that ties everything together.
