Everywhere you look at the moment, you’ll find that the environment is the hot topic. And rightly so.
More and more of us are stepping back and taking a look at what we can do to take care of it, help it and generally be a little kinder to the world we live in. If you want to do your bit while wedding planning, why not consider an eco-friendly wedding venue?
Today we’re talking about some of our absolute favourite settings that are the perfect fit if you want to go green for your wedding day…
Set on a 100-acre arable farm within the picturesque Teme Valley, Field Farm is a timber framed barn and naturalistic garden. Sounds idyllic, doesn’t it? This is the perfect eco wedding venue if you want to say ‘I Do’ under a canopy of trailing vines, or perhaps you love the thought of walking down an aisle lined with unusual plants and greenery. Lose yourself in the tranquillity of the flowers, foliage and dreamy surroundings. Here, you’ll get a wedding venue experience like no other.
Peaceful. Natural. Personal. All four venues at GreenAcres weddings are surrounded by woodlands, wild meadow flowers and the dreamiest views.

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to tying the knot, but their enchanting settings are the perfect start to your happily ever after.

We love everything about Casterley Barn. From its beautiful Wiltshire countryside location to its stylish interiors, everything about it will leave you feeling smitten. It’s the epitome of eco-luxe, fusing elegance with sustainability. The result is an ultra-modern, light-filled space with unrivalled views over organic farmland. It’s been built using eco-friendly techniques and runs entirely ‘off grid’, generating much of its energy through solar power and a biomass boiler. It’s stylish and sustainable, with exceptional service – what more could you want from your wedding venue?!
It’s impossible not to fall in love with Kudhva – in fact, we dare you to try! This one-of-a-kind eco wedding venue is hidden away in a 45-acre disused quarry with 180-degree views of the coastline.

This rugged Cornish landscape is the perfect spot to immerse yourself in nature and leave the chaos of everyday life behind to celebrate your love story. It embraces sustainability, creativity and off-grid living. It’s wild and adventurous with hundreds of secret corners to explore. So, if you want your day to be green and outdoor-based with plenty of freedom, Kudhva can be all yours to enjoy.
Tucked away deep in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, Hush is located at the top of the Yare Valley in the Broads National Park, in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Relax in hammocks, spend the night looking at the stars, enjoy guitars around the fire – it’s totally relaxed, and you can spend your time here celebrating as you wish. The lovely team want you to create your own unique wedding in a wild, natural and beautiful setting. Swoon…
