Real Weddings: An Elegantly Eco-Friendly Affair

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Gregor and I have been together for more than eight years, and we have always attempted to live simply and sustainably. For our wedding, we abandoned all preconceived ideas of “what” and “how” a wedding should be and chose to focus on what truly matters: good food and drink,  friends and family, and good music.

We live on a farm on the Somerset levels with woodland that Gregor manages, and this provided the perfect location for our wedding. Aside from a strip of bunting and the odd chair or log, the woodland ceremony needed no decoration as the site was magical in itself.

There’s nothing I like more than a tea party, so immediately after the ceremony we had a champagne picnic in the woods. It was the perfect time for our guests to relax and enjoy the scenery with tea, homemade cake, and bubbly.
