Wow! What a styled shoot I have for you today! As you will know I...
Brandon Road, Thetford, IP26 5NP
The ECO Wedding Show (formerly The Ethical Wedding Show) is back in Thetford Forest, Norfolk in spring 2022 at the beautiful Wellington Wood on April 10th. It is a show for eco, ethically-minded couples who love the planet as well as each other. Set in a meadow, next to the forest in a beautiful tipi – this one’s for you if you want this outdoor rural vibe.
Every supplier has been handpicked for The ECO Wedding Show, not just for their gorgeous product and impeccable service, but because they too care about the planet.
But this doesn’t mean quality has dropped. Neither does it mean they don’t deliver the creative luxe weddings we are known for here at Magpie Wedding.
Being eco-minded in your life choices and therefore your wedding choices is one of our core values and always has been. Let’s face it, choosing vintage which is where we began, is a great way to be eco-friendly, cut down your carbon footprint and recycle (and look good too!). We know that our couples love the planet as well as each other so want to have a positive impact with their spend for their big day. They don’t want single-use plastic. They want to know that their venue follows good practices with their recycling and supports local businesses. They don’t want a load of tat from China. They care.
We are firm believers that a million people embracing being ethical imperfectly is better than a few people doing it perfectly. Therefore we have designed a 5 point criteria for our businesses with everyone involved having to meet at least 3. This, therefore, means they may be less good at one aspect – but overall they are making a difference. And want to.
ECO stands for Ethical, Creative and Off Beat – the shows will be this as is Magpie Wedding!
The 5 points are:
The ECO Wedding Show is on April 10th 2022 and doors open at 11 and close at 3.00.
Visitors will be able to enjoy regular performances from acoustic guitarist and singer Laura Wyatt whilst they explore the show or have a break for a bite to eat and something to drink from our bar and food truck exhibitors. In our dedicated talk and workshop space, couples will be able to take part in a workshop about styling, trends and how to make them work for you and your wedding. In addition, we have Jamie Walker Celebrant sharing her top tips and essentials for writing your own vows, plus Katie from Something’s Brewin Stationery will be covering some dos and don’ts of planning your stationery. Our Style Lounge will feature regular model showcases and talks from a Norfolk based bridal designer and dressmaker, guiding you through her ethical approach and how you too could work with her to design your own unique dress. In addition to makeup demos during the day, Brunetti Artistry will be delivering a talk about how the right makeup can boost your confidence before, on and after your wedding day
