I was a massive fan of the film Clueless when it first came out but I never had its star, Alicia Silverstone pegged as a green type (which teaches me not to have types, doesn’t it?).   So I was pleasantly surprised when I started to hear whispers of  her ethical nuptials that took place [...]

No speeches, no sit-down meal, no wedding favours. Emily and Paul’s alternative wedding plans may have upset the traditionalists but doing things their own way made for a personal and meaningful celebration that sizzled with style while still taking care of the planet and the pennies. Find out how ebay came up with the vintage [...]

Once again, we’re delighted to bring you another fantastic real green wedding story.

This is a rather unusual one. A TV company called Dragonfly is casting for a new wedding series (nothing unusual in that). But the twist is that the 2 couples involved will plan each other’s wedding. And they won’t have met before (the couples won’t have met before, not the respective brides and grooms… I [...]

So it’s 6 years today since I married my lovely husband and what wonderful years they have been (sorry, should have issued slushy, sentimental post alert before I started this sentence). I remember waking up on my wedding day and crying (yep, crying, it was raining and I hadn’t planned for that) but then the [...]

My wonderful husband let me out for the weekend and took sole responsibility of childcare duties so I could go gallivanting around London for my lovely friend Laura’s hen do. Laura took tips from The Natural Wedding Book for the civilised start to proceedings with a jewellery-making class followed by afternoon tea (am still regretting [...]
