Food and Beverages
Choose a local supplier who uses local produce. Not only will this reduce emissions caused by transportation, but it will support local farmers. Insist caterers separate and recycle food waste. Plan a menu using simple, fresh dishes, reducing single-use plastic packaging. Identify a local charity* or homeless shelter to donate any ‘still good to eat’ leftover food items
For the bar service, support local breweries and vine yards. Choose single serve recyclable glass bottles over plastic serve ware.
Décor, Lighting and Flower
Hire or borrow vintage pieces. Upcycle everyday items as decorations and use solar lights and candles where possible. Rest assured all of our lighting use LED bulbs!
Use a local florist and choose native, in-season blooms. Consider donating flowers to a retirement home* after your wedding to bring joy to others.
Encourage your guests to travel by public transport*. (We provide lots of information on trains, buses and ferries that service the local area in our travel pack)
Arrange for shuttles* to and from your wedding. Plan to have your wedding and reception in the same place!
