Emma and Matt were married at Beaconside House near Bideford in North Devon over a glorious early Autumn weekend.  This laid back DIY wedding, which was oviously packed full of fun and laughter, was beautifully captured by Emma at Freckle Photography. 

Today the lovely Emma (who is a wedding celebrant and coordinator by trade) and Matt are generously sharing their quirky and unique wedding, held deep in the North Devon woods, with us.  Over to you Emma ...

You’re planning to get married to the love of your life and best friend and the thought of it fills your heart with joy, but being the centre of attention in front of all your friends and family on your Wedding Day seems too hard to contemplate …

You’re a Bride who feels that a mainstream dress and wedding just won’t work for you because of some element like a disability, an illness, or scarring, bodily differences that you were born with, or that has arisen through illness, surgery or trauma.

Well, a small team of Green Union’s friends and wedding professionals are searching for a Bride who is keen to inspire others about how we are all uniquely beautiful, and want to celebrate that fact, to prove that we are all beautiful through our uniqueness, not our conformity.  They want to help you achieve this and to tell the story in public so others can see just what is possible. Are you keen to take advantage of this amazing offer?

Stormy winter skys, Neolithic standing stones, Pagan rituals, dwarfs, mist, magic and mystery.  All these elements went towards this stunningly dramatic Pagan wedding on Salisbury plains last December.  Organised by Pagan Wedding Planners and with photos by Nikos, Jacky and Paul’s wedding really is a one off.  Over to Jacky for all the sumptuous details …

I do hope last week’s line up of 8 handpicked tent supremos with superb eco credentials helped you focus on what sort of cover you could choose for your outdoor wedding.  There was plenty of inspiration for you, but you maybe they weren’t in the right part of the country or not quite the right tent?

As I said last week, you can control a lot of what happens on your wedding day, but what happens with the weather is totally random. Of course it’s not want you want to hear, but believe me, you won’t want your big day to be a wash out and taking cover is essential.

Take your pick from this line up of 9 tent experts ...

They are all hand picked by Green Union and listed in our wedding directory so you know I have personally vetted their credentials.
