As more and more people adopt plant-based lifestyles, there are ever-increasing opportunities for vegan-focused events and services to arise in the market.
In the wake of rising demand, an eco-boutique in Bournemouth, The Green House Hotel, has launched the UK’s first fully-vegan wedding package. Hotel bosses have stipulated that as well as offering the best vegan products and services, they are also ‘committed to sustainability and ethical sourcing’, so couples don’t need the added stress that their day will be bad for the environment.
To build the vegan package, The Green House Hotel has partnered with numerous local suppliers. The hotel’s head chef will source local produce to put together seasonal menus, and wedding cakes will be provided by local bakers.
As well as vegan food and drink, the hotel’s bundle will offer hair and makeup done by vegan company Greener Beauty, and footwear by designer Charlotte Mills, as well as Fairtrade UK flowers from Hillview Flowers and Events.
“We’d noticed such an increase in vegan weddings and had become so well-known among our vegan suppliers that we decided to create this vegan wedding package,” Olivia O’Sullivan explains, general manager of the hotel, added.
“We hope to offer the very best in luxury for our vegan wedding parties, our dedicated team of personal wedding planners are on hand every step of the way to ensure your day is perfect.
“The team happily assist with everything from wedding stationery, dresses and flowers to chauffeurs, photographers and entertainment with everyone absolutely committed to bringing wedding dreams to life.”
The package gives vegans a central place to organise the wedding of their dreams; a day they will remember forever, without it being clouded by issues of ethics and the environment.
