It seems that being environmentally conscious is becoming more and more important to the average Joe/Jane these days. But how on earth do you manage to organise a ‘green wedding’? Paper invites, travel and electricity are just a few of the milestones to overcome. Well, for starters check out Cornish Tipi Weddings…
“You might be drawn to a vision of a fairy glade; where you exchange your vows by woodland and stream before musicians on fiddle and flute play you past banks of foxglove and wild rose. Children clutching posies skip alongside as you walk hand in hand to a tented space filled with food and flowers. Later candles in paper lanterns and tiny lights shine softly across the music and dancing – long after little ones are tucked up in their tipis.
You could be stirred by the rise of the eco-wedding; thinking green and sustainably from the beginning, you want to arrange ceremony and reception close to one another to reduce miles travelled, low impact accommodation for everyone to stay in, local suppliers of seasonal food and drink, in fact everything as low carbon and earth friendly as it can be.
Or go bold Bollywood; styled in hot pinks, saffron and red, with low seating and glittering saris, or English country house; afternoon tea served on vintage china under swags of retro bunting. Maybe use the pure waters of our lake to float coloured nightlights in your own private Festival of Light. Choose to set dress it all for glamour or lazy days. Our beautiful valley and woods are perfect for Alice & Mad Hatter tea parties, Enid Blyton style adventures or just simple bbq’s and woodland picnics – celebrations as easy or detailed as you please.”
