Sustainable & Budget-Friendly Wedding Ideas
Rach & Jake chose to hire a local village hall to keep costs to a minimum, decorating it with handmade, recycled and reused styling. They aimed for decor to either be recycled again at the end or gifted to then be reused, resulting in minimal wastage.
All florals apart from Rach’s bouquet were homegrown by the couple and displayed in bottles they had recycled.
Their rings were ethically sourced and produced, keeping sustainability at the core.

Picnics On Haybales
This DIY festival wedding had no dress code, allowing guests to come dressed casual and comfy so they could enjoy the garden party celebrations to the fullest.
Their wedding was also very welcoming of little ones! They created a designated play area and provided snacks and games to keep them entertained.
To save money on catering, guests were encouraged to bring their own picnics! Guests made themselves comfy on haybales, laid out under a ceiling of festoon lighting and bunting.

Rach and Jake attend Glastonbury every year, and now they bring their little one too! In the spirit of the festival, their wedding day ended in games, live music, and a lot of dancing, followed by a silent disco! The couple changed outfits to embrace the festival vibe – how cool is this sparkly jumpsuit?
