WEDDING VENUES: 12 uniquely fabulous naturally green and eco friendly wedding venues: PART 2

Image:  My Fabulous Life

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. 

The Matara Centre

Naturally spiritual wedding venue in the Midlands.  A social enterprise committed to wellbeing for people and the planet.  This ethos is reflected in everything they do.  Matara attracts people who love nature, care about their own psychological and spiritual growth, have a positive attitude to the future and want to bring out the best in all those around them. Such a calm and beautiful spot.

Middle Coombe Farm

A beautiful farm with woodland in Mid Devon.  Unique and desperately romantic wedding venue that sits in its own breathtaking valley, hidden deep in the Devon countryside.  Middle Coombe has 400 acres of sustainable woodland and organically certified farmland means you have this stunning venue all to yourself for the whole weekend. Red deer, birds, badgers, rolling hills, beautiful farmhouse and cider barn and its own ancient oak ceremony tree.  What’s not to like?

Pendragon Country House

For intimate weddings in Cornwall.  Your special occasion deserves a worthy venue, so allow yourself to be immersed in an elegant, yet comfortable, warm and welcoming atmosphere.  Be it a civil ceremony and wedding reception, or simply the wedding reception, you have found the perfect place!

Pines Calyx

A peaceful, modern and fresh wedding venue on the South East coast of Kent.  If you are looking to make your wedding as sustainable or green as possible, or just want to capture its sparkling beauty and tranquillity, Pines Calyx is a simply breath-taking choice set in six acres of landscaped gardens with stunning sea views. Lovely.

Sheepdrove Organic Farm

A working organic farm with impeccable environmental credentials and organic food, Sheepdrove is an inspiring canvas on which to create a truly unique wedding day, each celebration here is entirely different from all others.  Enjoy two days of exclusive use when you plan your bespoke wedding at Berkshire’s most unique and environmentally responsible 'green' venue, tucked away in the heart of an area of outstanding natural beauty, only minutes from the M4.

Splotts Moor Farm

A mystic and magical place near Glastonbury in somerset.  Overlooked by Glastonbury Tor and where the famous Old Oaks ’Gog and Magog’ still stand. Splotts Moor means you can throw your very own village fete or festival, with space for children and adults to play in the meadow which has its own stone circle, a perfect spot for pagan handfastings and Christian and Humanist blessings. Perfectly harmonious.

Sunbeam Studios

Contemporary elegance in the centre of London.  With a unique blend of Edwardian elegance and modern aesthetic and a flexible blank canvas, this super chic city location is ideal for glamorous weddings in the centre of the city. Sublime industrial chic.

Wagons and Fire

A unique and eco-friendly farm encampment in Wiltshire.  You’ll get use of a large field, which you could use for erecting a marquee, camping, etc., and five handcrafted sleeping wagons with lots of little extras! Very relaxed, friendly and personal, the Wagons and Fire team will help you create something really special and bespoke. Set in the heart of the beautiful Pewsey Vale this secret location is well worth a look.

Welsh Green Weddings

Very special sustainable wedding venue in West Wales.  This family affair does romantic weddings for individualists incredibly well on their relaxed organic farm, with delicious fare using the best possible ingredients (including vegetarian, meat and fish) from the best local suppliers, including their own small market garden. Welsh wonder.

Wildwood Bluebell

Located in the heart of the Cotswolds in a beautiful and secluded location at the end of a mile long farm track through the woods, means you and your friends can celebrate your wedding surrounded by fields and trees. A natural wedding in the making …

Wolfscastle Country Hotel

A stunningly romantic green wedding venue in Pembrokeshire.  The award-winning Wolfscastle is a traditional 4-star hotel nestled in the unspoilt heart of Pembrokeshire - bordered by the wild and wooded Anghof river valley on one side, and overlooked by Treffgarne Rocks on the other.  Fantastic local and organic food is a priority.  The perfect location for an intimate green wedding.

WWT London Wetland Centre

Natural weddings in the middle of London.  An incredibly unique green wedding venue right in the heart of the city surrounded by a sanctuary of birds, wildlife, wildflower gardens, trees and ponds. Surprise and inspire your guests whilst directly contributing to the conservation works of the wildfowl and wetlands trust. A great way to give back.

Did you I hear you ask which one’s my favourite?  I couldn’t possibly say - they are all quirkily wonderful in their own ways!

Here at GUHQ I’m always excited to find new and truly one of a kind, outstandingly interesting, super cool, unusual wedding venues that are as passionate as I am about sustainability so I’d love it if you tell me about any I may have missed.
