Wedding Timing

In an era where conscientious choices matter more than ever, many couples are choosing to celebrate their love in a way that respects our planet. If you dream of hosting a wedding that not only celebrates your union but also honours Mother Earth, look no further than Brookfield Hall. Here’s your guide to planning a sustainable wedding, filled with love, joy, and a touch of green.

Invitations with a Conscience

Begin with eco-friendly invitations made from recycled paper, or go completely paperless with digital invites.

Questions to ask:

  • Can I find a local supplier for sustainable stationery?
  • Are digital invitations a suitable option for my guests?

Locally-Sourced Catering

At Brookfield Hall, our chefs are dedicated to sourcing local and seasonal ingredients, minimising food miles and supporting local farmers.

Tips to consider:

  • Opt for a vegetarian or vegan menu to reduce your carbon footprint.
  • Consider a zero-waste approach to minimise food waste.

Eco-Friendly Décor

Choose reusable items like glass vases and fabric table runners, or select biodegradable options.

Questions to ask:

  • Can I rent décor items instead of buying them?
  • Are there biodegradable alternatives for single-use items?

Responsible Floristry

Consider working with florists who use locally-grown, organic flowers, and avoid floral foam, which is non-biodegradable.

Tips to consider:

  • Use potted plants that guests can take home and plant.
  • Donate flowers to a local hospital or care home after the event.

Ethical Fashion Choices

Look for designers who use sustainable materials and ethical practices.

Questions to ask:

  • Can I find a vintage or second-hand wedding dress?
  • Are the garments made using ethical labour practices?

Travel Considerations

Encourage guests to carpool, or provide transportation options that minimise emissions.

Tips to consider:

  • Provide information about public transport options.
  • Arrange group transportation like buses or coaches to reduce individual car usage.

Thoughtful Favours

Gift your guests with something meaningful and environmentally friendly.

Questions to ask:

  • Can I gift a reusable item, like a tote bag or bamboo cutlery set?
  • Could a donation to a favourite charity be a fitting favour?

Waste Management

Ensure proper recycling and composting facilities are available.

Tips to consider:

  • Use reusable crockery and cutlery to reduce waste.
  • Discuss waste management with Brookfield Hall’s team to ensure proper disposal.
