Hello! My name, as you may have guessed, is Bonita- I founded Simply Tipi in 2015 & have since had the privilege of facilitating some incredible, unique events on the beautiful island of Guernsey. I love travel, wildlife, culture and art. I allow all of these things to remain central to my daily life and as such, seek to deliver beautiful, deeply special events, that do not harm the environment.
To encapsulate all of this within one name, I decided to use my own, having outgrown Simply Tipi- "Simply Tipi, Stretch, Sperry, Planning, Styling & Management" has less of a ring...
Having been entirely client-led and keen to encourage personalisation over the past three years, I am now keen to utilise this experience by offering event planning, styling & management alongside tent & equipment hire. The planning, styling & management services aim to offer locally-sourced, environmentally-friendly products, centred around vibrant & innovative design. I come at this from a background of experience in delivering events that have received fantastic feedback, some of which you can view below. The use of my name, Bonita, shows what I put into my work & what you can expect of me, I give it my all, appreciating the delicate balance between the massive enjoyment of creating an event & the potential stress this can induce. Bonita offers three core services; event planning, styling & management, meaning I can assist at all stages, from your first mood board, to clearing up after the event.
"Our wedding was absolutely incredible and truly the best day of my life. Bonita and Simply Tipi did an absolutely amazing job, with so much love for the detail. The tipis looked stunning & everyone had a great time"
Greg & Jill, New York
“Thank you so much for all your help on our wedding day. The tipis were amazing and everything we had dreamt of…and more! It was the perfect day and we are so happy that we used Simply Tipi. We really cannot thank you enough. The tipis are stunning. You and your staff were all so helpful”
Alex & Emily, Guernsey
"From our first contact until our last Bonnie and her team were approachable, knowledgeable and professional. She offered advice on locations we could use, suggestions of suppliers and the number of guests that would fit comfortably in each of the many possible set-ups. The tipis really are a blank canvass and we loved being able to put our own stamp on the decorations. Bonnie and her team pay attention to the details that matter and approached our day as though it was as important for them as it was for us, which we’re very grateful for. We had the most fantastic wedding and received so many compliments on the tipis! Thank you Bonnie and team!"
Fiona and Ben
"Bonnie thank you so so much for everything. You excelled all our expectations last night. It was an amazing night and nobody wanted it to end. Thank you again"
