Weddings are large, expensive events so it’s a great idea to be mindful when it comes to minimising your carbon footprint. Today, Becky from The Garden Chef tells us about a recent shoot she collaborated on with some local florists. Over to Becky…
A big part of our ethos is to have great respect for the food we create; how we create it and what we create it from. One of our concerns is the cost and waste related to weddings so we wanted to look at ideas to minimise this. We wanted the shoot to be eco-friendly and sustainable. By using local, foraged flowers and food we were able to design beautiful tablescapes while safe in the knowledge there were zero air miles involved in getting the produce to us. We wanted to be creative and imaginative to achieve a unique result, rather than spending money.
Presenting things that become a talking point is important to us, guests talk about new flavours they haven’t encountered before.
We wanted to show that eco-friendly, local and economical can be beautiful. Lesley Burdett was the perfect photographer with her eye for detail, light and colour.
