WOW lately I’ve been spoiled for choice with an abundance of Green Unions to choose from!  

Today the lovely Maxine and Adam have let me feature their very down-to-earth hand made winter wedding at The Longhouse in Somerset, an eco friendly venue that I have known and loved for many years - in fact The Longhouse had been listed on GU since we launched. Thank you, Matt, for keeping the faith!

You've booked the venue, got the dress, chosen your bridesmaids - did I hear you say you're having SEVEN? And even though your 'maids' are buying their own dresses, the budget is beginning to pinch. 

Should I splash out on a professional wedding photographer, I hear you ask?  I've heard a bride say that she only realised how important her wedding pictures were after the big day and bear in mind that a picture's worth a thousand words so I'd say a resounding "YES"!  And professionals like this amazingly talented duo Peach & Jo, new to Green Union, totally prove my point.

Stormy winter skys, Neolithic standing stones, Pagan rituals, dwarfs, mist, magic and mystery.  All these elements went towards this stunningly dramatic Pagan wedding on Salisbury plains last December.  Organised by Pagan Wedding Planners and with photos by Nikos, Jacky and Paul’s wedding really is a one off.  Over to Jacky for all the sumptuous details …

You’re planning your wedding, it’s going to be a true reflection of you and your H2B's life values, you’ve got it all mapped out in your head and on paper, but you know how it is …

Sometimes you just can’t find that elusive idea, you know the venue must be out there somewhere, or the photographer that takes 'just those sort of photos' …

Green Union is full of lovely hand picked wedding suppliers and is filling up as I write.  I’ve got a fantastic line up of new eco friendly wedding venues and ethical wedding photographers to roll out in the next couple of weeks, so watch this space.

Today I'm delighted to warmly welcome The Rockpool, this coastal cool, intimate and utterly relaxed Cornish wedding venue close to Hayle with miles of beach and fabulous seascapes to play in.
