Eco-chic wedding fair at the Green House hotel

We heard that during marriage week, which ends today, couples were being encouraged to focus on actively nurturing their relationships (something we feel strongly about) and it seems a natural extension for them to nurture the environment and their local communities too. So it seems fitting that on Sunday February 26, the Green House hotel is hosting an Alternative Wedding Fair showcasing the cream of environmentally friendly wedding suppliers, bringing inspiration to couples planning to wed in the South of England.

Inspiration for brides-to-be will fill the luxurious, award winning, four-star hotel in Bournemouth. Organic, fair-trade, recycled and vintage wedding wares from florists to photographers and everything in between will help couples to be considerate in their eco-chic wedding choices.

One of our favourite labels, the House of Tammam will be there to show off a selection of eco-couture wedding dresses for the chic bride who cares about ethics. A trailblazer of the eco-luxury movement, all Tammam wedding dresses are a perfect marriage of style, quality and sustainability. Lucy Tammam said she's really excited to be showing her eco-wedding dresses at the Green House along with so many fantastic sustainable suppliers at an amazing location.

It should be a great day for southern brides and grooms-to-be to find out how to include an ethical aspect to their wedding and it's a great opportunity for eco-friendly wedding vendors to reach a market outside London who might not know they exist.

Sarah Pavett, event manager of The Green House hotel, said: "As the UK's greenest hotel, we wanted to create an Alternative Wedding Fair to illustrate the many ways that couple can make sure the planet doesn't pay the price for their special day. A thoughtfully planned menu for the breakfast, organic wedding cake, recycled or FSC stationery and a vintage or even ethical wedding dress all gain eco-points."
