Real Weddings

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?

When the lovely Emma Stoner sent me photos of Annie and Phil’s very personal wedding at The Longhouse near Bruton in Somerset in June 2016, I knew you’d like to read all about it.  This down to earth couple wanted a wedding venue that celebrates all things local where they could entertain their family and friends, plus a broad of children, in the great outdoors in a relaxed and informal way.  Emma’s photos really capture the relaxed and friendly vibe that the couple created and will give them very special personal memories of their wedding day for years to come. 

Bride Annie told me all about their search for the perfect wedding venue and how the day unfolded - over to you Annie …

Happy Friday everyone on this first day of July!

We’re welcoming in the month on a totally upbeat note (I think we all need some fun right now) with this joyous Welsh farm wedding of childhood sweethearts last summer. Beautifully photographed by Eleanor Jane, there was only one place Kirsty and Adrian wanted to get married - the place they both called home - the stunning Welsh coastal county of Pembrokeshire with it's scenery and wide open spaces.
