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.

Vegan Friendly Supplier

You would love a wedding that stands for both of you, surrounded by nature with all and everything you love. It means that you want to be in with all the plans, the details and choices for your wedding and free from the usual rules and ‘carraiges at midnight’…

You might have just found the perfect private outdoor wedding venue here at Wellington Wood in Norfolk, that is also eco-friendly, pet-friendly and child-friendly, ready for you to go for it...and we've got your back the whole way. 

We will help you think clever, meaningful and mindful whilst using local creative suppliers and products to bring smiles and value all round. 

It will mean a wedding which is very YOU -  you'll feel it. Where your friends and family can relax, have a great time and just be themselves so that you can all enjoy your wedding at your own pace, in your own time and in your own way for one of those best days ever.

How much it costs depends entirely on you. You are welcome to include your favourite ideas and skip the rest. There is also a choice of tent styles from Giant Hat Tipis,  Sailcloth Marquee and the original beauty Canvas Marquee in order to suit all styles and budget. 

Every couple is unique and each wedding different here, so it's tricky to name 'the price' without a chat, but this is exactly the reason why freedom reigns here and personalised is possible.

It's 'personal bespoke' not 'standard package’ so that stars align for everything here to revolve around your magical ceremony and unforgettable celebration. 

Surrounded by a wildflower meadow and ancient woodlands, away from the hustle-bustle, feel the earth under your feet, dance to the beat of your own drum and be at total ease with yourselves and all around you. The only real limit for your wedding here is your imagination.
