EPISODE ONE: Running a sustainable wedding venue
In this first episode of the My Eco Wedding Business podcast we chat with Anselm Guise from Elmore Court, a beautiful historic estate in Gloucestershire. Anselm inherited the estate from his uncle in 2007 and has been on a journey since then to turn it into a profitable business that gives back to the environment.
We chat about why sustainability is important to him and what measures he is taking to ensure a sustainable future for his family home.
He also tells us about some exciting new projects that he and his team are undertaking that will benefit not only the environment but the experience couples have when they hold their wedding there!
EPISODE TWO: Being an Ethical Florist - The how and why?
In the second episode of the My Eco Wedding Business podcast I chat with Julie Fierro from Foxgloves and Alice. Julie is an artisan wedding and event florist with a strong emphasis on sustainability and the environment and how she as a florist can reduce the impact that weddings have on the planet.
We chat about how Julie came to own Foxgloves and Alice, where the name came from and how she solves the issues of making floristry more sustainable. She has some great tips and ideas so don't miss out!
EPISODE THREE: Branding your sustainable business
In the third episode of the My Eco Wedding Business podcast I chat with Charlotte from Creative Wilderness Branding. A small sustainable branding agency that helps people create beautiful ethical branding for their businesses.
We talk about how Creative Wilderness came to be and the motivation behind it. How important branding is for your sustainable business and how Charlotte can help you. She also shares her top tips for running a sustainable business.
EPISODE FOUR: Getting your ethical business found by couples
So you have done all of the hard work setting up your eco wedding business, but how do you get found by couples? Today I chat with Bethan from Little Green Book Events, a Wedding Supplier Directory with a difference. Little Green Book only lists ethical, sustainable businesses that qualify through at least one of 4 strict criteria.
Bethan started Little Green Book after working in the events industry and seeing first hand the waste produced by large weddings and conferences and then after trying to plan more environmentally friendly events and realising how difficult it was to find quality ethical suppliers for a wedding or event.
