Willow & Rust Weddings

Wedding Planner | Derbyshire, East Midlands

Sam started Willow & Rust Weddings after planning her own wedding and realising how harmful to the planet the average wedding actually is and that she must help both couples and suppliers make more eco-conscious choices. Sam loves searching for and using vintage pieces in her styling and is constantly upcycling and repurposing items to add to her hire collection. All of this together has evolved into her own unique style, ‘Glamorous Vintage meets Sustainable Elegance’.

Outdoor weddings are already more eco-friendly than traditional venues due to their very nature. Sam works with a great selection of suppliers who focus on sustainability and reducing the environmental impact that weddings have.

What is an outdoor wedding? Basically, this can include almost any space that is not a traditional wedding venue, a place where you need to add some kind of structure, like a tipi, a marquee or pagoda. These types of venues Sam calls, ‘from scratch’ venues and are the types of events Sam loves to organise. Sam believes they can be the most amazing, unique and personal events, because you have chosen everything and designed your day around yourselves.
