Sustainable Weddings in Wales
Passionate about tackling a throwaway culture in the wedding industry, and knowing how possible it is (with relatively little effort in this day and age) to hold an event that is unique, striking and sustainable, I set out to put together a green wedding shoot that will hopefully inspire couples all over the UK to look further into creative, eco friendly options when planning their big day.
With local and seasonal in mind, I took my inspiration from hedgerows in June hoping to create a sense of hazy summer moments mixed with the bright pinks of our native flowers at this time of year. I hoped to highlight the simple yet exceptional beauty that can be created by combining the talent of local artisan business's with what our doorstep nature has to offer.
This day turned into a wonderful collaboration and celebration of some of Wales's finest makers and growers in the Welsh wedding world, who are helping to bring about a change in the industry and enabling couples to celebrate love, life and beauty without leaving a massive carbon footprint!
Hope you enjoy these images - There are lots as it was so difficult to narrow them down!
