Ever wonder what happens to the foam when you're finished with the flowers
The foam is plastic, and in many cases ends up in the ocean, being eaten by small fish... 😔 I'm trying to get creative and find alternatives, I'd love to hear your ideas! 😁

This handmade cotton-y paper is pressed without gelatin, isn't that fab Not all paper makers and brands use animal based products to make their materials, thank goodness. It's a great step for the animals and has a lower footprint on the world 🌏

Behind this huge and untamed Autumnal Bridal bouquet is my lovely volunteer. Not only is he now modelling flowers, he has turned up every week, forked over new ground, wheelbarrowed muck, fetched water from the river, worked in all weather and is the only person I know who actually likes to hear me say “I’ve had an idea ...” I’m eternally grateful. Thanks too, to the Bride who had faith in me producing ‘something’ at this late stage. #trulyseasonal #unique #ecobride #alternativebride #ripon #northyorkshire #thankheavensforvolunteers #theend
Work in progress 🕊 A new bridal collection made of the only natural materials is getting ready 🌿
Here's the save the date in it's full glory 🌿 really over the moon with this collection, can't wait to see what couples do with it. I hope some opt for some lovely handmade paper, which would be amazing!
Morning early birds reading this at a very rainy 6 o'clock in the morning. The conversation around sustainable fashion is gaining more momentum than ever. And rightly so – I challenge anyone to watch Stacey Dooley’s recent Fashion’s Dirty Secrets documentary and not start asking questions about their own fashion purchases and consumption.
It’s very encouraging to see more and more responsible bridal designers striving to ensure their garment production is as sustainable as can be. But one particular designer stands out for her truly authentic and long-standing commitment to ethical bridal fashion design, and she is @SanyuktaShrestha. Today on Love My Dress, we're sharing an exclusive - Sanyukta's brand new, eye-poppingly gorgeous collection of ethical bridal gowns, 'Entwined Love, Chapter 2'.
Whatsmore, all brides who order a gown from this collection will receive a very lovely two hundred and fifty pounds voucher towards their gown. All the details are on Love My Dress today.
Sanyukta is the REAL DEAL when it comes to sustainable bridal fashion. She uses only 100% natural fibres in the production of all her gowns, including organic cotton, hemp silk, bamboo silk and milk (yes I said 'milk' - the fabric is made of a by-product of milk, a combination of skimmed milk fibres and modal that is blended together to create a stunning new silk-like material - and it truly is the most silk-like gorgeousness ever as I've visited Sanyukta's boutique and seen for myself gowns made from this divine eco-fabric myself. With similar properties to human skin it contains seventeen amino acids and natural anti-bacterial properties meaning it is very healthy for skin as well as being comfortable. The fabrics made from milk fibre are also biodegradable meaning that ecologically they are good for the planet as well.

#tbt to excellent couple Alex & Dave celebrating after their ceremony last month with a bridal bouquet full of the season’s best and confetti everywhere 💖 There’s a common misconception about #britishflowers that they won’t last as long as their imported counterparts but Alex told us that her flower crown survived the entire day and party until 2:30am 👏🏻👏🏻 Excellent effort from those London grown petals 💃🏻 Thanks for the 📷 @jonnyhinesphoto
💎🌝🌀 Mesmerizing triangular facets of this ethically sourced 1ct rose cut diamond melt into the rich recycled yellow 18k gold and Sapphires of our newest ultra low-profile ring. Easy to wear this one reminds me of last nights sparkling full moon.
This dress is very special to me, it took double time than normal to get made, and I used double material than usual to finish it. It represent the magic perfection of nature, life starting from a seed, to open up as a gorgeous living been, to bloom with grace and bring us beauty, to produce new seeds to spread and repeat the cycle. Spreading good seeds is the essence of love. The dance of nature is pure love. #belove
Dress designed and hand made by #isacatepillan ✨
She is a true beauty. A little bit boho but equally oozing pure elegance. Lace to die for and a nude underlay giving off all of the seductress feels. 💃🏽🙊
