Earlier this month I attended a rather beautiful event at Town Hall Hotel and it was in celebration of all things Aussie.
If you hadn’t noticed, us Brits in the bridal biz have become a little obsessed with all the gorgeousness that’s happening on the other side of the globe. The Australian wedding bubble is big, bright and pretty darn inspirational. With weddings blogs such as Hello May, The Lane and Nouba making their way into our feeds it’s no surprise we’re crushing on our stylish Antipodean friends.
In fact, I urge you to follow these Instagram folks right now – not all wedding related but all all pretty awesome;
Town Hall Hotel is a striking hotel in a vibrant part of East London and belongs to the Unlisted Collection with hotels also in Shanghai, Singapore and Sydney. The venue combines architectural splendour with cutting-edge design and a devotion to the pleasures of life – right up our street.
Knot & Pop are without doubt one of my favourite Wedding Planners – current, fresh, creative and utterly cool I may have a bit of a girl crush on Susie, founder of this stylish award-winning luxury planning brand. Everything they do is with the most incredible attention to detail so when I received an invite to this gig I knew I was in for a treat.

Luxury countryside wedding venue Heaton House Farm, Macclesfield, has one more feature in its range of offerings for couples looking to tie the knot: the chance to have an eco-wedding in a sustainable, green venue.
With more and more people conscious about the environmental impact of a big wedding, Heaton House Farm has been leading the way in its effort to reduce the carbon footprint of its farm, switch to renewable energy sources and minimise waste from all events at the venue.
“Increasingly, one of the most important things soon-to-be-wed couples are asking when they visit is how ‘green’ we are,” says Sarah Heath, Marketing Manager at Heaton House Farm.
“They’re looking for a countryside venue that is doing its part to protect and look after the surrounding area, and we’re proud to be able to offer that sustainability.”
Heaton House Farm was one of the first businesses in the region to install solar panels, and within 10 years had more than doubled the number of panels on its barns. With 250 currently installed, they generate up to 60kwh of energy during the daytime!
To make the best use of this renewable energy, the farm has adjusted key working hours to ensure equipment and machinery can utilise the solar power, and constructed insulated storage to heat water which is used for guests’ showers that night and the following morning.
The installation of a biomass burning has further reduced the venue’s carbon footprint, with agricultural, forest and waste from weddings all being burnt on site to generate heat and electricity. Any fallen trees across the site’s 165 acres are used for construction or fuel purposes.
“Reducing and recycling is a key part of everything we do here at Heaton House Farm,” continues Sarah. “We were an early switcher to LED bulbs throughout the venue, which saw a 90% reduction in our electricity use, and with our biomass burner we’ve dramatically reduced our reliance on overseas fossil fuels, and minimised our carbon footprint even further.”
