"Matt and the team at Matakata have been an absolute dream to work with for our wedding. The Tipi was amazing and definitely made for an eye catching marquee. These guys are flexible, easy to deal with and their communication is constant and useful. Thank you again, until next time"

"Thank you so much Matakata team! Your Tipi's, lights and everything were simply nothing short than amazing! It was the best decision to go with you for our wedding day, along with everyone else we were blown away by the Tipis, they were such a great experience!"

"Josh and I would like to give a HUGE thanks to the Matakata team, our wedding was an amazing event because of the dedication that you brought. The quality of the setup and furniture was outstanding, the tipi impeccable and all of guests were beyond impressed- even more so given that we were in a paddock in the middle of nowhere!"

"I used Matakata for a music festival themed birthday party. Matt and his team were absolutely awesome - great to deal with, super accommodating and professional. The tipis were an absolute hit along with all the lighting and furnishings. Would highly recommend these guys and their awesome Tipis!"
