|Published: 13th February 2012 11:48|
On Sunday February 26, the award-winning Green House Hotel is hosting an Alternative Wedding Fayre to showcase environmentally friendly suppliers that won't cost the earth.
Florists to photographers will fill the luxurious, four-star hotel in Bournemouth with organic, fair-trade, recycled and vintage wedding wares to inspire brides-to-be to be considerate in their wedding choices.
Sarah Pavett, event manager of The Green House Hotel, said: "During Marriage Week (7-14 February), couples are being encouraged to focus on actively nurturing their relationships and we are hoping they will extend this further to nurture their environment.
"As the UK's greenest hotel, we wanted to create an Alternative Wedding Fayre to illustrate the many ways that couple can make sure the planet doesn't pay the price for their special day. A thoughtfully planned menu for the breakfast, organic wedding cake, recycled or FSC stationery and a vintage or even organic wedding dress all gain eco-points."
Designer bridal brand, the House of Tammam, will be displaying a selection of eco-couture wedding dresses for the bride who cares about the planet as much as following fashion. A trailblazer of the eco-luxury movement, all Tammam wedding dresses are a perfect marriage of style, quality and sustainability.
Head designer, Lucy Tammam, revealed: "We are really excited to be showing our eco-dresses at the Green House hotel Alternative Wedding Fayre. So many fantastic sustainable suppliers at an amazing location, it will be a great day for southern brides and grooms-to-be who want an ethical aspect to their wedding. It is a great opportunity for us to reach a market outside London who might not know we exist and are able to create gowns for them."
Travel agents from Responsible Travel will be on hand to help happy couples pick an exceptional honeymoon, which is as kind to the culture of the country they are visiting as it is to the holidaymaker.
General manager of the Green House hotel, Olivia O'Sullivan, added: "We are looking forward to hosting so many companies who share our ethos and still provide a wonderful wedding experience. The Green House itself was recently voted the top wedding venue in southern England by The Independent. It really is a stunning venue, providing attention to detail and luxury that is unrivalled in Bournemouth."
