BTW they do also offer these workshops to groups of 10 or more on a day or evening to suit you - We think this is a brilliant idea for a hen party!

All that said, if you can't get to a workshop, and love these unique bespoke wreaths, visit their website where you can buy directly from their online shop.

Would you like to feature in a film?

Are you getting married in the next couple of months?

Would you be interested in a great opportunity to feature in a small and intimate documentary about Green Weddings to be aired by Euronews, an International TV channel based in Lyon, France?

Euronews broadcasts worldwide in 11 languages and they are longing to do a feature about 'green weddings' in their program 'Terra Viva', a bi-monthly programme of four minutes which is dedicated to Green Living issues.

They would love to create a story around you, the couple, your family and friends with some filming of the wedding, and the reasons why you have chosen to throw a green wedding. The film team is small and unobtrusive - just a journalist and a cameraman and they would like to film you as soon as they can.

So if you're throwing a green wedding in the next two months and are interested in taking part, then we would very much like to hear from you urgently.

Please phone us on 01769 550580 or email info@greenunion.co.uk if you would like to take part, or if you want to have a chat about this great opportunity.
