MASSIVE THANKS TO ONCE WED FOR THIS HIGHLIGHT
Did you know the average wedding emits 63 tons of CO2? That’s more than a single person emits in a full year!
Operating in a beautiful, natural environment such as Aspen, Colorado, Bluebird Productions knows a thing or two about planning a sustainable and eco-friendly celebration.
We asked for their top tips for how you too can strive to tread lightly on the environment when it comes to your wedding day. We think you’ll find it’s easier than you’d expect.
What an amazing day. Both Kelly and Dave were the most laid back, relaxed couple of people about to be wed. The entire day was beautiful. Whilst prep was taking place guests were relaxing beside the pool. The venue is so pretty and quiet that I think it sends out sprinkles of calm over anyone that stays there. I even had time to make Kelly a bouquet from the wild flowers around the venue. Perfect day. Congratulations & Love to K & D
I know an amazing mate/photographer named Jo Kemp. Jo recently posted on her blog an interesting article on how to become a more eco-friendly bride. Please click here for the full post and Jo's 5 great tips.
Being a verge stalker I have always wanted a bride to ask me to create a wedding using flowers that are growing wild. Here in Spain I don't have the abundance of wild flowers that you get in my wetter homeland of the UK. However we do get the olives, vines and grasses and definitely splashes of colour. The basket (please excuse the bad quality pic) above is a result of a walk yesterday morning with my dog Maggie.
These 2 photos are the result of my rummage in the hedgerows. The bouquet doesn't have any large blooms but instead it is beautiful and wispy. This shape would work perfectly with a long straight wedding dress.
The boutonnières are a lovely mix of dry and fresh grasses and flowers. These small flowers would work beautifully with a floral crown, wrist corsage, ankle corsage etc. I have a growing Pinterest board dedicated to eco-florals. To view the board please click here.

Consuelo is one of those people that you meet and would like to have them around you for the rest of your days. This lady is made of all things good and funny with lashings of love.
A whirlwind of events led up to the wedding day but all was good with Consuelo having her two daughters Olivia and Jackie close to hand to sooth away any nerves.
Jim and I had been chatting via emails and I could feel I was corresponding with a really nice person. Upon meeting James I found him to be quite a quiet person, very calm. Underneath that exterior I also found a wickedly good sense of humour. Never underestimate the quiet ones!
Consuelo´s dress looked amazing. Very sexy and so great to take a side step away from the white/cream wedding dress. Consuelo told me that she had looked for a long time and eventually found the dress online. No alterations needed as it fitted her perfectly from the start.

The ceremony was performed by Jim who is one of Jim´s closest friends. Olivia sang the song `Todos Vuelven´as her mother walked down the aisle. This song was a favourite of Consuelo´s mother who used to sing it to Consuelo encouraging her to join in. A very touching moment.

Ramiro at Fotografia Sitges - As a wedding photographer, you get to spend time with your clients and share intimate moments, interesting conversations about their lives and what brought them together. It was during Consuelo's make-up and hair preparations that I got to know a little about her and her family. Consuelo's mom was from Perú so that provided an explanation to the name. I was fascinated by her stories, a past mixed with joy and hard blows, a present of illusion and a future filled with hope and happiness together with James, her soon to be husband.Unknown to us then, these facts would be masterfully resumed later during dinner, in the most touching speech we have witnessed to date. The casual feel of the day didn't prepare us to what we were about to take in later. Our wedding planner friend Philippa and I could only look at each other with watery eyes and wide open mouths.
The D.J and dance floor had been set up outside for the evening party. The D.J knew exactly what to play and they loved him for it. There is a gentleman three lines up that is wearing an orange bow tie and he was on the dance floor for a very LONG time. He was brilliant and definitely had the moves.
I loved this wedding. The couple, their families and their friends. Happy vibes the whole day.
This was a very small intimate wedding. The guest number was 30 including a good giggling group of children. The day was really relaxed and I loved decorating the old wooden tables that are at this venue. Casa Felix
The day unfolded with a lovely calm. The children were in the pool and there was a very peaceful no stress feel coming from everyone.
