If you are planning your wedding this year, you might be well aware that it can actually have a huge impact on the environment. There are lots of things only used once for the day and at high cost. You may be feeling the pressure to fly guests in from abroad and also to fulfil a more traditional idea of a dress or suit, or flowers.

We’re thrilled to be sharing this wonderful wedding style inspo from lovely English Wedding member and vegan wedding planner Sian at Amethyst Weddings, along with more of our faves and members: images are by super lovely Sarah Hoyle Photography, dresses are by Jessica Turner Designs, and accessories from the incredible Clare Lloyd.

I went paddling on our beach twice in November… sand and sea are a huge part of my life. So this beach inspired shoot with lovely Sian from Amethyst Weddings is a special one for me. Sian’s focus on ethical wedding planning and styling is ever so important, and here she shows how beautiful an eco friendly beach wedding can be! The little details are stunning with starfish charms, a geode cake and bright sand ceremony making this a unique and enchanting eco wedding style. I hope you love it as much as I do! I’ll leave you with Sian to explain how she created this look with a brilliant team of Hampshire wedding suppliers.

Everyone’s been talking about eco-friendly and sustainable weddings recently. So is it a “trend” or are green weddings here to stay?

What makes a wedding eco friendly or sustainable?

By definition a wedding or event is eco friendly if there has been no harm or negative impact made to the environment. In reality it means to use services and suppliers that are conscious of the impact any product they use can have on the environment. They will have taken steps to eradicate these or have a plan in place to offset any negative effects. This can be done for example by donating to tree planting schemes or helping with local environmental projects if you have needed to use fuel for a car journey or similar.
