We know it's important that the ethos of your wedding supplier aligns with your own...

The wedding industry covers a very broad activity base, and you will have your own benchmark of how 'green' you want your suppliers to be.

All our partners are required to self-certify their compliance with at least four points on our 'Green Gauge':

Using renewable energy e.g., biomass boiler, solar energy, buying energy through a 'green' tariff, etc.

Heritage & Culture

Materials

Transport

Waste
