Eco Wedding Venues

One of my bridesmaids is getting married next August, and has picked an eco park as her wedding venue. We're all about ethical clothing here at Ears and Whiskers, and given that Sophie is beavering away making ethical wedding dresses we thought it would be fun to take a look at some other wedding aspects that you can put an ethical spin on.

We've picked five of the most beautiful ethical and eco wedding venues we could find across the UK - first up...


1. Mount Pleasant Eco Park - Cornwall

Located near Porthtowan in Cornwall, the Mount Pleasant Eco Park offers a beautiful, unspoilt landscape. This is the venue that my bridesmaid has picked, so perhaps I'm a little bias, but doesn't it look absolutely stunning?

Cost: from £2200 for 100 guests during May-September
Location: Cornwall, England
We like: It has a beautiful amphitheatre ceremony site, a wedding tipi for the wedding night, plus a campsite for your guests. You also get use of the barn for your wedding breakfast - very rustic!


2. Fforest, Cardigan

Fforest is a 200 acre camp and farm, tucked away in West Wales, and a beautiful location for a relaxed, informal wedding. 

Cost: from £8950 for 80 guests
Location: Swansea, Wales
We like: You can have a Humanist wedding, eat some beautiful local and homegrown food and then dance the night away in a giant hat tipi. Gorgeous!


3. Pines Calyx, Margaret Bay

Hidden in plain site near the White Cliffs, Pines Calyx is a gem of a venue. If you're looking for that natural, relaxed vibe it might be a good choice for you!

Cost: from £1950 for a week day wedding during low season
Location: Dover, England
We like: Pines Calyx is a zero carbon venue, with lots of sustainable building features, organic gardens and absolutely stunning sea views.


4. Beach Weddings Bournemouth

I've always thought it was a shame that you can't get married outdoors in the UK, however Beach Weddings Bournemouth offers just that and goes one better - you can get married on the beach! Amazing!

Cost: from £8950 for 80 guests
Location: Dorset, England
We like: You can get married on the beach, under a locally made driftwood arch. Swoon.


5. The Bivouac, Ripon

Bivouac comes well equipped for a magical woodland wedding, probably the only thing missing is phone reception.. ;)



Cost: Unavailable online. Contact weddings@thebivouac.co.uk for more details.
Location: North Yorkshire, England
We like: Community fire pits, beautiful Yorkshire countryside and a hot tub (!) - the Bivouac seems like an idyllic place to get married.

What do you think - have you ever considered an eco wedding venue? :)

Love

Sarah
