Green Wedding Directory | Eco Weddings and Sustainable Celebrations|
Are you looking to plan your wedding, but don't want to break the bank? Why not also consider having an eco-friendly and sustainable wedding as both go hand in hand.
If your fed up with the traditional cookie cutter wedding and want to plan something a little different it can often be a daunting task.

My favourite part of the site, as a wedding photographer, is the Green Wedding Venue's Directory, Lisa Dawn Photography loved to photograph weddings that are a little different from the norm. So if you are planning your green wedding, do Get In Touch!
The directory showcases venues such as the new wedding venue, Winkworth Farm in Somerset http://www.winkworthfarm.com/ and Clavels hay Barn in North Petherton, Somerset http://www.clavelshaybarn.co.uk/ and also one of our personal favourites Huntstile Organic Farm, Goathurst, Somerset.

Founder Rosie Ames is passionate about nature and committed to social justice since her childhood in Africa. Her background of 20 years in fashion design and on-going lifetime commitment to environmental responsibility embodies our ethos of contemporary style with a conscience. She now runs GreenUnion and her wedding planning business from Catsheys, an organic smallholding in North Devon.
Esther Maughan McLachlan, a marketing and communications specialist with a keen understanding of environmental and social issues and a personal commitment to ‘doing her bit’. A founder member of the Association of Sustainability Practitioners, Esther writes regularly on sustainable consumption for the alternative press. Her biggest disappointment is that downsizing to Devon forced her to learn to drive after 30 years on foot, bike and train. Esther helped in the establishment of Green Union but has since become a Mum and is concentrating on that life project, but advises us from time to time.
David Ames, Rosie's husband and company secretary, is a furniture maker by day. He designs and makes beautiful furniture to commission using sustainable woods and local timber.
Together with other committed and creative individuals, we are pioneering a return to beautiful, meaningful and sustainable celebrations, in an industry which will see over 260,000 couples in the UK get married during 2008 and spending an average of over £19,000 each, totalling at least £4.6 billion annually.
We are all committed to living and working a sustainable life and while none of us claim to be perfect, we make heaps of effort to embrace the guiding principles outlined in our Green Gauge.
