Morning everyone! How is your day going? I’ve been making inspiration boards for you today – some gorgeous ideas in soft green shades. Flowers take centre stage at weddings… but sometimes foliage can be as beautiful a theme as a floral one… see what you think!

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!)
