A Morpeth couple is in pole position to try to achieve business success with some spectacular structures.
The Unique Tent Company, established a few months ago by Tina Dolder and her husband Steve, is the first tipi tent supplier to be based in the North East.
They believe the products they have are suitable for all tastes. They can be used for a range of events including weddings, corporate functions, festivals and Christmas parties.
Mrs Dolder, who has many years of experience as an events co-ordinator, said: “I had been using these fabulous tipis for the past two years for weddings and events, but I always had to hire them from outside of the area.
“I felt these special, unique structures were something we could bring to the region and after carrying out a lot of research into the tipis and the potential market for them, we decided to set up our own business to hire them out.
“Due to my background in event management, we can help clients every step of the way with their wedding or event and we have a large number of reliable suppliers we share with our clients.”
The company has provided eight jobs so far and aims to build on that in the near future.
Mr Dolder said the tipis can be opened at the side to ensure that there will be no stifling atmosphere.
“Everyone is absolutely blown away when they see the tipis for the first time and we’ve received many positive comments about how they can be used to meet different requirements,” he added.
