I hope last week’s round up of 11 unique and unusual wedding venues with the very best of eco credentials got you thinking and maybe you even found the perfect place to throw your very own fabulous fete.   If you did, you need look no further!  But maybe you’re still looking and all of a dither? 

Well my round up of 12 more of the best eco friendly wedding venues from the super quirky to the downright outrageously romantic might press your buttons.  These delightfully different wedding venues are all approved Green Union partners listed in our wedding directory (some exclusive to Green Union) so you know I have personally vetted their credentials.

You’ve decided to propose to your boyfriend this leap year, but you’re struggling to come up with romantic ideas ...

Your boyfriend’s just realised that 2016 is a leap year and he’s started daring you to pop the question on 29 February - you sort of know he’s not really expecting you to do it, but why shouldn't you be the one to ask for his hand in marriage?  After all, it is a leap year and traditionally 29th February is the one day of the year when girls can propose to their beaus. Go girl!

You’re getting married (congratulations!) and you’re looking for a unique and unusual wedding venue with the best eco credentials that reflects you both as a couple. You know, a venue that doesn’t use stretchy chair covers and gives you a time slot to adhere to. Makes your head spin.

Where do you start? I know, it’s tricky because winkling out that very special place can be hugely time consuming because those little gems are quite shy and don’t usually advertise in the jungle of cookie crumble wedding blogs out there, so unless you hear about one through word of mouth, or stumble on one just by chance, how do you find that perfect match?

Well, I’ve made it easy for you to do just that and this week I'm taking you round 11 unique, super cool eco friendly wedding venues that are bound to press your buttons.  They are all approved Green Union partners listed in our wedding directory (some exclusive to Green Union) and you know I have personally vetted their credentials.
