What is the Sustainable Wedding Alliance?

Experience of working with couples, like you, directly means that we know that you wish you had a greater choice when it comes to sustainable (and ethical) suppliers.  As responsible business owners,  the members of the Sustainable Wedding Alliance are focussed on making both their businesses and the events and weddings they produce more sustainable.

Looking for sustainable suppliers?

If you’re looking for ethical, sustainable wedding suppliers then you’ve come to the right place! 
All our members are committed to making your wedding as environmentally friend as it can be. They all adhere to our strict code of conduct and are assessed annually on their sustainable practices. 
We’re working on a beautiful members directory that we hope will be ready very soon. In the meantime if you’re looking for a sustainable supplier, please feel free to contact us or check out our partner directory, Green Union

How important is sustainability to you and your wedding?

In May 2021 we ran a sustainability survey asking couples, like you, how important sustainability is. We’ll be announcing the results here in early July.
