Are you thinking of having a vegan wedding? Perhaps you’ve been invited to one, and you’re wondering what it’s all about. We’ll explain what a vegan wedding is, what to expect – and how you can plan one!

There’s a lack of awareness in the wedding industry, of what a vegan wedding might be.

There’s also a kind of nervousness from non-vegans, about attending a vegan wedding. Will it be weird? Will I have to eat raw vegetables all day? Can I have a drink? The answers are, in order, no, no – and YES of course you can!

We do love planet-friendly, sustainable weddings! This lovely and super useful article to help you plan your eco-friendly wedding was written for English Wedding by Hampshire wedding photographer Sarah Hoyle 

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.

I have been a wedding photographer for 8 years now. I have learned so much along the way and evolved as a photographer and a human being! I have had quite a few evolutions of my logo and the colours I use to represent my brand but have never really thought about who I was as a photographer or who I wanted to put out there to my clients and audience.

That was until…lockdown! Lockdown stopped all weddings and businesses with the industry.  I had to step away and look after my family, as everyone did. Home schooling, support my teacher husband, just get through it.
