Tree Planting to offset your Wedding Carbon Footprint

Bluebell woodland in Perthshire, Scotlan

At home I do everything I can to re-use, up-cycle or recycle, so I thought it was about time I transferred eco-friendly ethos to my business. Thinking about how I would like to do this I decided that giving something back to the environment would work well. One of the best ways to do this is by planting trees. So I have decided to gift a tree planting to each one of my wedding clients to offset carbon footprint of your big day..

This will be included in your package when you book full day wedding coverage with me.

During the time you spend planning your big day think of all the trips to your venue, church and shopping. That’s already a lot of miles! What about food miles? How your food gets to your venue? How far will some of your guests be travelling? All the preparation I will do before your wedding, including visiting your church, venue and meetings with you, my happy couple. It all adds up.

Your wedding tree can help to offset up to 1 tonne of carbon dioxide throughout the life of the tree. By planting a wedding tree you can help maintain and improve new woodlands.

How it Works

You book your full day wedding photography with me. After your big day I offset all the travelling etc that I/we will have done during the preparations etc and dedicate a tree planting in your honor. You can also have a say in where you would like this tree to be planted, anywhere across the UK. You will also receive an e-certificate (not paper) from the company.

Should you wish to have more than one planted this can also be arranged (at further cost).

If you are trying to keep your carbon footprint low then remember in Perthshire we have AMAZING wedding suppliers (food, drink, transport, venues oh and photographers). If you need help with sourcing anything or anyone please do contact me and I may be able to help.

For those of you who are already booked with me, this will also be included in your package.

For the Family Lifestyle sessions I do around Perth & Kinross – at the end of each year I will make a donation to plant several tree’s for this footprint also.
