A special hello this morning to any green brides and grooms. I have a guest post for you from the very lovely Harriet Wild from the Eden Project in Cornwall. I’m an eco-friendly wedding blogger (English Wedding Blog‘s laptop, lights and baking machine are all powered by Ecotricity, did you know?!) Needless to say I’m all for weddings which consider and help our world and environment so I am proud to have this guest blog post on the blog today. (Check out the wedding favours – Seed Bombs! Fantastic!)

How to plan a green wedding

Gone are the days where the word ‘eco’ means hippy, tie-dye and poor quality. Having a low-impact wedding is a great way of saving a bob or two, while at the same time treading lightly on the planet. A ‘green wedding’ means that consumption, sustainability, creativity and careful sourcing are at the forefront of decisions.
