Sustainable wedding soiree

Last Friday we were delighted to attend the grand opening of Atelier Tammam, London's first ethically focused couture wedding studio and boutique. We had a lovely time at the soiree thrown by Lucy Tammam, the power behind the label.

The new Atelier Tammam is located on Hastings Street in Bloomsbury and close to Kings Cross and St. Pancras (so convenient for out of town brides). Dedicated to the same cause as the label, the rooms convey effortlessly stylish and exuberant ethical luxury with bamboo flooring, eco-friendly paints on the walls, English hand crafted rails and fabulously stylish energy saving light bulbs. It's only fitting that a bride should purchase a one of a kind dress in a one of a kind bridal boutique for their very special day!

We are so excited for Lucy who has worked tirelessly since 2007 to design and produce fashion forward bridal gowns and evening wear that is ethically produced, fairly traded, sustainable, vegetarian and environmentally friendly - not such an easy task. Here at GU HQ we all wish her the very best of luck in her new venture.

Atelier Tammam, 5 Hastings Street, Bloomsbury London WC1H 9PZ
