New Sustainable Wedding Workshops
After planning luxury events at some of London's most prestigious venues, Maria Neves, a wedding planner with more than 15 years' experience, has launched Sustainable Wedding Workshops out of a passion for helping couples and the planet.
The practical workshops are designed to give engaged couples the tools to create a sustainable wedding that's both beautiful and reflects their values. "After seeing the waste and damage to the environment that traditional weddings can create, I knew it was time to rethink the way the industry works," Maria says. "Now, more than ever, we need to respect and protect our planet."
Launching in the capital in 2021, the weekend workshops will allow couples to learn how to plan their own eco-friendly and sustainable wedding. Maria will show them the importance of family dynamics and diplomacy, create a wedding timeline and vision board, access reliable, ethical suppliers and more. To-be weds will also receive a final one-to-one consultation two weeks before the big day to finalise details. Maria adds, "Knowing your budget and allocating it to the things that truly matter to you will make you feel empowered and confident on your wedding day."
