Love this venue!!!
The Shire is in the most romantic forest setting. We had the most wonderful wedding at the Tipis with all of our family and friends. The outdoor boho ceremony area was just perfect for us. The owners are the most amicable people to work with. We were treated with respect through the whole process. The bridal suite is so cute and my bridesmaids had fun getting ready there. Thank you At The Shire for my wedding to rememberSent on 02/19/2021

Katy and Paul met in Los Angeles at their yoga teacher training. Paul went back to the UK and Katy back to Australia. They decided to meet up 14 months later at a friends yoga studio. They decided they wanted to take their yoga traveling and went around the world teaching yoga for 4 and a half years. It was when they were in Annecy, France for a friend's wedding they experienced the magical tipis. After they got married in Gilbraltar, they decided to move back to Houston, where Katy is from. Being nature lovers they are, they decided to move to the Sam Houston National Forest in Huntsville. Nestled in 33 acres they created this beautiful unique tipi wedding/event venue. They are excited to share this magical place with you. Stay tuned for a yoga studio and more accomodation coming soon to The Shire.
