Wooded bliss! PR manager and his ballet teacher bride hold eco-friendly wedding in forest where guests eat vegan food from compostable plates while sitting on bales of hay (and it ONLY cost £12,000)
- Couple ditch fancy frocks and glossy invitations to host an eco-friendly wedding in the Hereford woodland
- Chloe and Joshua Stringer-Hall, 25, from Worcestershire, saved thousands of pounds with an eco-ceremony
- They served vegan food on compostable plates, used hay bales as seats and had a tractor to transport guests
When Chloe and Joshua Stringer-Hall decided to tie the knot, the last thing they wanted was a blowout do. So they ditched fancy frocks and glossy invitations in favour of a more eco-friendly affair.
And that meant a ceremony in woodland, locally sourced vegan food grown without pesticides, invitations on recycled card, food served on compostable palm leaf plates and farmers’ hay bales for chairs. The couple, both 25, estimate their wedding, at Woodland Tipis and Yurts near Hereford, set them back £12,000 – well short of the average spend of £17,000.
