What an amazingly magical celebration we had last weekend with our sustainable wedding in the veggie patch!
Ally’s gorgeous dress was handmade by the wonderfully talented Annie Werner from Pearl and Elspeth and featured a gorgeous blue wren that was upcycled from a funky vintage tea towel! Guests were encouraged to get into the ‘green’ theme with the handmade recycled invitations noting that the dress code was ‘something old, something ‘green’, something borrowed, that’s the theme!’
After much on-line searching, we were thrilled with the sustainable, ethically produced wedding rings we chose from the creative jeweller Marlon Obando Solano from Naturaleza organic jewellery. Ally’s ring is made from sustainably harvested timber and recycled silver, and Rich’s is made from black coyol seed.
The bunting flags we recently made created a wonderful festive atmosphere. Local weeds like canna lily were harvested for flowers – the beauty of bush regeneration!
After much hunting and special ordering, we created a tempting selection of organic wine, beer and juice...
And enjoyed a divinely delicious vegetarian banquet for lunch followed by yummy sweets prepared by the fabulous Caroline from The Red Kitchen.
We hope you enjoyed this glimpse into our special day and thanks so much to those who commented earlier with fabulous ideas and suggestions for making our wedding eco friendly!
