Eco & Micro-Weddings
* Less Stress * Less Environmental Impact * Less Cost *
Never have we been more focused on what really matters in life; those we love and the planet we live on.
At Gildings Barns, we have been struck by just how many people are increasingly searching for weddings that don’t cost the earth,
either financially or in environmental damage.
Weddings can generate a huge about of waste.
But it’s clear that eco-friendly weddings are on the rise, with more and more couples wanting to lessen the environmental impact of their special day.
The single biggest thing you can do to lessen the carbon footprint of your wedding?
Have fewer guests?
Ask anyone ten years or more after their wedding if they are still in touch with all their guests, and the majority will say a resounding, ‘"No!"
Life moves on, acquaintances move on... but those nearest and dearest remain for a lifetime.
So, to those who share our commitment to the environment, we’re offering much lower venue hire rates for
small Eco-Weddings & Micro-Weddings, even on peak summer weekends.
To minimise the impact on surrounding wildlife, finish a little earlier and have the music a little quieter or,
opt for alternative evening entertainment such as a string quartet, harpist or magician.
Up to 50 guests throughout the day (10pm finish)
Up to 30 guests throughout the day (10pm finish)
