How Green is your Supplier?

 

How Green is your Supplier?

So we've put together a ten point criteria, the Green Gauge, that we ask all our partners, your wedding suppliers, to comply with for your peace of mind. The wedding industry covers a broad activity base and you will have your own benchmark of how 'green' you want your suppliers to be. We happily accept wedding suppliers who are trying their best and can check 4 or more criteria on our Green Gauge.

The Wellbeing Farm certainly is no ordinary wedding venue

We specialise in stress-free relaxed, fun, quirky, magical weddings, where everything from the food and styling, to the entertainment, can be tailored to suit and support you. Our farm is hired exclusively, so your special day is fully yours.

The farm is located in the stunning Lancashire moorlands, and is the perfect country chic venue for you to create a unique wedding experience that will reflect your unique and creative personalities. We can hold up to 170 guests for the ceremony, and up to 300 for the evening reception.

We’re perfect for those who want a Pinterest-style Barn wedding, but don’t have the time or resources to fully transform a venue. In the hire price, we provide a fantastic and extensive range of props for you to use, which are great for creating fabulous photographs. If you want that dreamy outdoor wedding, we have a large, pristine lawn area which is fully licensed for marriages. 

On the farm there’s a tipi with a smokeless fire, a horsebox bar, a fire-pit, and even a llama themed boudoir...

You can also hire our spectacular off-location Wedding House, including its own lake, forest, and tennis court.

Even our animals like to get in on the fun! So, if you have always dreamt of having llamas, alpacas, and donkeys in your wedding photos, we can do that.

It would be wrong of us to put the word ‘Wellbeing’ in our name if we didn’t also care about the wellbeing of the planet. Sustainability is one of the cornerstones our business was built upon, so we make sure to be environmentally conscious in everything that we do. 

For instance, we have our very own wind turbine! It supplies clean energy to the entirety of the farm. Food miles stay low as all meats are locally sourced from our own family butchers and we even rear our own Wheatsheaf Farm lamb. Polytunnels around the farm are used to grow edible flowers to decorate the meals with!

Any food waste is collected and turned into fertiliser, we recycle as much as we can and have banned single-use plastic. 

We have an on-site Prop Store which is just like an Aladdin’s Cave with everything you need to transform the Barn into your personalised Pinterest vision. This means no unnecessary hire charges or purchases for you.

We do try and reduce unnecessary paper and have made all our contracts, documentation and brochures online – this saves printing, reduces paper and makes the process quicker for everyone.

Other organisations have recognised our eco credentials, too. We’ve been awarded a Green Tourism Gold Award, and score a perfect 10 on Green Union’s Green Gauge!
