Confetti Shot.If you're anything like me and Summer is your season, here's some sunny, floral-filled eco wedding inspiration to brighten the day! GREEN UNION partner, Bore Place, hosted this colourful vision, which exclusively featured eco-friendly and ethical Kent-based wedding vendors, including two more partners, BOHOTANICAL for wedding flowers and Bambi for hair and make up! The day was exquisitely captured by Denise of OneLove Pictures (who is studying for an MSc in Sustainability, no less!).

The Venue

An Eco Friendly and Ethical Wedding at Bore Place, Kent, Captured by OneLove PicturesBore Place is a charitable trust which was founded with the intention of exploring how to live and work sustainably. They are a rural retreat in the Kent countryside, and providing bespoke opportunities for people to learn, grow and reconnect with themselves and the environment, as well as hosting glorious wedding days for eco conscious couples.

The Flowers

The floral head bands were made from off cuts of faux blooms used in previously constructed arrangements.

The Hair & Make Up

This was accompanied by some baked vegan treats, also decorated with edible flowers from a local organic farmer. 

The vegan cacao bars were hand made by our lovely model, Lea. They are made with the most ethical and high quality ingredients available to her small business.

The Outdoor Ceremony Space

Some bottled flowers for the Registrar's table were teamed with some potted herbs and rose bushes, perfect for a garden ceremony. Some rugs for the aisle and a scattering of cushions cosy up the space nicely.

The Indoor Ceremony Space
