On to one of our favourite fair trade topics – the wedding cake. With the Fairtrade mark stamping more ingredients than ever before, you can have (forgive us) your ethical cake and eat it too. In fact, it has come a long way since 2007 when we could only find two sources of Fairtrade wedding [...]

As we approach the end of the year, we thought it would be a good time to flick back through the books we’ve had by our bedside for the last 12 months and pick out a few gems for those of you planning an ethical and green wedding in 2012. Here goes… 1. No more [...]

In honour of National Cupcake Week 2011 (thanks Twitter for making me aware of this scrumptious occasion!) we’ve had a sift through our archives and found this well matured post on cupcakes that we originally wrote for Wishpot back in 2009.

Or in this case “more flies with plant-derived agave nectar” I suppose. So my biggest hope with our vegan wedding catering was that we’d maybe [...]

Cake Conundrum

Two ways to a woman’s heart… and we’ve got them both at Ethical Weddings! First up, the stylish but ethical vegan shoe company, Beyond Skin, which boasts Natalie Portman and Chrissie Hynde as fans, will be joining the Ethical Weddings directory when it launches later this year. An exhibitor at the recent Crafts Council ‘Well-Fashioned: [...]
