If you're planning a greener wedding celebration, then a great idea is to hold your ceremony and reception at the same venue
Using one location will cut down on transport, decorations and environmental impact.
What to choose?
If you're getting married in a church, chapel, synagogue, mosque or other religious establishment, do they have a hall you can hire for your reception? Or is there a community hall nearby?
Find a venue that supports an environmental or social cause. Consider museums, organisations supporting heritage and tradition, village halls, community organisations, hotels with strong eco-credentials or country houses. What about restaurants that source their food from local and organic producers.
For an intimate reception you may like to consider a small restaurant with rooms or a bed and breakfast where the chef or owners grow their own food and cook delicious meals.
If you're planning to have an outdoor party consider a private garden with a marquee. Nature reserves, public or private woodlands, an arboretum or a public park can offer a diverse range of atmospheres. What about moorlands, canals, boats or the seaside.
Campsites, maybe a tipi site, could provide accommodation for all your guests as well as an area for your party or a space to erect a huge tent, keeping everyone on one site and reducing transport costs.
