About:          Whilst studying for his undergrad and postgraduate degrees, Kieran had a summer job for one of the South East largest Tipi companies.

“Here at Great British Bell Tents,  we are a small (but perfectly formed!) family business and generally only cater for one wedding per weekend, so you can be assured that you will have our undivided attention on the lead up to your big day!
