A Wedding that Won’t cost The Earth!

f you are as committed to a green way of life, as you are to each other, then naturally you will want to ensure that your wedding is truly Green! With the average wedding costing dearly in monetary value and the earth’s resources, there are lots of measures you can take to make sure your wedding day doesn’t go against all that you believe in. A thoughtfully planned menu for the breakfast, organic wedding cake, recycled stationery and a vintage wedding dress, all gain eco-points but even better choose an eco-friendly venue too.....Look no further than The Green House Hotel.
The Green House, is a stylish and modern eco-friendly four star boutique hotel in Bournemouth, which opened in 2010. Being possibly the Greenest hotel in the UK, it is also renowned for excellent standards of service, unrivalled luxury, and a commitment to proving that you don’t have to compromise to be green.
Being a Grade II listed Victorian Villa, this hotel is in an attractive setting, with extensive grounds and located only moments away from the resort’s sea front for a range of photographic opportunities. The interiors are light-filled, with period detailing alongside a contemporary colour palette, ensuring the perfect backdrop to your individual décor and theme. There are three areas of the hotel which are licensed for civil ceremony and partnerships, including our restaurant ‘The Green Room’, the bar and our private events room. (For 50, 30 and 100 guests respectively).
The private events room accommodates up to 60 guests for a wedding breakfast, making it an ideal choice of venue for medium sized weddings, and with just 32 bedrooms the hotel can readily be booked for exclusive use.
You and your guests will be in for a treat with the mouth-watering creations of Head Chef, Gordon Jones, whose menus are full of local, free range and organic ingredients. There is a list of organic and bio-dynamic wines to complement, including English sparkling wine for the toast if you prefer!
Guest rooms are perfect for romantic first nights, mini moons or honeymoons with supremely comfortable over-sized beds, crisp bed linen, organic toiletries, the latest amenities, including Bose sound, bathrooms with walk-in showers and free-standing roll top baths in the bedrooms.
