What is an Eco-Friendly Wedding?

An eco-friendly wedding focuses on sustainability and minimising environmental impact. This involves careful planning and consideration in choosing materials, vendors, and practices that are environmentally responsible and sustainable.

Eco-Friendly is Trending

Sustainability is more than just a trend; it’s a lifestyle choice. Modern weddings are now seeing a shift towards more sustainable practices, reflecting the couple’s commitment not only to each other but to a healthier planet.

Some Recommended Tips We’ve Gathered for Your Eco Wedding

Find a Sustainable Wedding Venue:

  • Choose a venue that prioritises sustainability, such as Carrajung Estate, which offers a natural setting that reduces the need for excessive decorations and energy usage.

Try Sustainable Diamond or Estate Jewellery:

  • Opt for ethically sourced diamonds or estate jewellery, which adds a touch of vintage charm and reduces demand for new resources.

Eco-Friendly Wedding Dress:

  • Select a wedding dress made from organic or recycled materials, or consider renting a gown to reduce waste.

Recycled or Virtual Invitations:

  • Use recycled paper for your wedding invitations.
  • Go digital (such as invites!) to save trees and reduce carbon footprint.

Eco Tablescape and Decorations:

  • Decorate with items that can be reused or composted, such as biodegradable confetti and soy or beeswax candles. At Carrajung Estate, only biodegradable confetti is used.
