It is possible to create a magnificent, magical wedding that people will remember forever while at the same time treading lightly on the planet. Treasure your big day and make it a green one with a little help from our webshop.

Pick a sustainable wedding venue

Get married at the Eden Project for a truly unique eco-venue. Sustainability, creativity and imagination are part of everything we do here, and you can rest assured that the best local suppliers have been sourced. You can have your wedding pictures taken by cascading waterfalls, or maybe under the twinkling fairy-lit dome of the Mediterranean Biome.

Ethical favours

Say thank you to guests for their love and support by offering them an ethical wedding favour. For an unusual favour they won’t forget, give each guest a love bomb Flung at the earth and will burst into colourful forget-me-nots – your guests don’t need to be green fingered to have fun with them. It’s a memorable wedding favour they’ll love.

Make it personal

Create a scrap book of the day so friends and family can add poems, drawings, messages, photos or anecdotes. Our love-heart photo album is handmade using fibres from the lokta bush; a tradition that goes back a thousand years. Preserve your memories in this fairly traded book for keepsakes you’ll treasure forever.

Eco-friendly thank you notes

These gorgeous paper notelets are a lovely way of keeping in touch with your wedding guests. Perfect for thank you notes or party invitations, they’re guaranteed to brighten up someone’s day. Each piece of paper has an Indian-style floral design on the back, and comes with a matching envelope.

Decorate with green flowers

Locally grown, these seasonal bouquets of cut flowers don’t need to be transported from overseas. And because they’re freshly picked to order, they haven’t spent any time in fridges and will arrive to you in the best possible condition. Perfect to bring your wedding day to life, or as a gift for the happy couple.

Ethical gifts

Set up an Eden wish list so you can take your pick of quality plants, energy-saving gadgets, homeware or gardening equipment on our webshop. Guests have the opportunity to donate a little extra to offset the carbon emissions of their delivery.
