Let me introduce you to the lovely Bea, of Botanika

She creates the most beautiful natural wedding flowers which constantly reflect the seasons and are packed full of local, British grown flowers and foliage, topped up with foraged wild ingredients.  

I love it that she is passionate about using local suppliers, not only for her flowers but also the other essential floral accessories like the natural hand dyed silk ribbons that have become most popular for finishing of her stunning wedding bouquets.

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.
