With wonderful tipis, a selection of ceremony spaces and stunning scenery, this venue is a perfect match for The Ethical Wedding Show.
Every supplier has been handpicked for The Ethical Wedding Show, not just for their gorgeous product and impeccable service, but because they too care about the planet. These suppliers help to deliver the creative luxe weddings we are known for here at Magpie Wedding, but in a way that's eco-conscious too.

The day will include great suppliers ready to support you and show you their beautiful products or services. We will also have talks and workshops, more details released soon.
WHY THE ETHICAL WEDDING SHOW?
Being ethically minded in your life choices and therefore your wedding choices is one of our core values and always has been.We know that our couples love the planet as well as each other so want to have a positive impact with their spend for their big day. They don’t want single use plastic. They want to know that their venue follows good practices with their recycling and supports local businesses. They don’t want a load of tat from China.
HOW ETHICAL WILL THE SHOW BE?
We are firm believers that a million people embracing being ethical imperfectly is better than a few people doing it perfectly. Therefore we have designed a 5 point criteria for our businesses with every one involved having to meet at least 3. This therefore means they may be less good at one aspect – but overall they are making a difference. And want to.
We could have called it The Ethical-ish Wedding Show. or the Ethically Minded Wedding Show. But that get’s a bit wordy so instead we promise that everyone involved is doing their bit.
The 5 points are:
SUPPORTING LOCAL – to bring down their carbon footprint, to support communities and small businesses here in the UK.
NO SINGLE USE PLASTIC – reducing plastic use overall and cutting out single use plastic
BEST RECYCLING PRACTICES – using recycled materials, and recycling afterwards
CARING FOR WILDLIFE – adding a large vegan choice, not using chemicals that harm nature, and generally loving the planet
SUPPORTING OTHER ECO INITIATIVES – supporting charities, reducing waste, donating after the day, excellent working practices, hand making items that last forever…..
Please note that this show will be safe and secure with all Covid 19 related procedures in place as per the government guidelines at the time. It is an outdoor venue. We will update customers and exhibitors on our safety procedures nearer the time due to the ever changing advice and development of the pandemic
