An eco friendly (and chic) wedding



(page 1 of 4)

Weddings are joyful celebrations, but they can also be an opportunity to make an Earth-friendly statement. Whether it’s your venue, your table settings or your attire, you can choose to be green. Event planner Sorrell Downing took on the challenge (along with her amazing team) of creating a wedding that’s eco chic — not only environmentally conscious but also fabulous and fun.


Natural Beauty

Set in an old mill building in historic Harrisville, the inspiration shoot features a sumptuous tablescape atop an old wooden farm table covered by a flax tablecloth. Bamboo chairs provide seating with a woven fiber rug beneath. Accents of greenery at each place setting complement a dramatic live-tree centerpiece. “They bring a natural beauty to the rest of the table,” says Downing. Last but not least, the wine glasses are made from recycled wine bottles.


The shoes for the bride are made from recycled water bottles.

The eco-friendly theme is carried on with pottery — the soft pink plates — and wood — the scalloped chargers and flatware handles.

The bride carries a bouquet made of king protea, tuberose, golden mustard rose, lepidium, rice flower, ranunculus, lady slipper orchid, anthurium and grevillea. It’s tied with a dyed silk ribbon. The flower girl, with a matching crown of flowers, sits in a high-back straw chair that adds a sculptural element.
