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.
So, to those who share our commitment to the environment, we’re offering much lower venue hire rates for Eco or Small Weddings. 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, cellist, harpist or magician.
Alternatively we can offer you a mid-week date with same day set up at a reduced rate. Please enquire for more details.
