The ECO Wedding Show in Cambridge is THIS WEEKEND! Held at Willow Grange Farm, Cambridge on Sunday 22nd October 2023 it’s a show that celebrates all things creative for your wedding day; from the flowers to the dress, from the photography to the styling. We want artisan, unique couples to enjoy discovering new styles for their day, in a relaxed environment. ECO stands for Ethical, Creative, and Offbeat and that’s exactly what kind of suppliers you will find!
Our aim is to showcase a creative luxe design but with an ethical edge. Our core values are inclusivity, well-being over weight loss, being eco-minded, supporting UK indie businesses, and holding feminist values. Each show has fabulous suppliers, useful talks to inform and experiences to inspire, live music, cake, a cuppa, the opportunity to go VIP, and above all, an ethos that celebrates you! So no teeth whitening, no weight loss, nothing that makes you feel anything less than beautiful.
We are firm believers that a million people embracing being eco imperfectly is better than a few people doing it perfectly. Therefore we have designed a 5-point criteria for our businesses with everyone 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.
Every supplier has been handpicked, not just for their gorgeous product and impeccable service, but because they too care about the planet.
🖤 They have worked hard to reduce their plastic use before, during, and after your wedding.
🖤 They have introduced vegan versions to give more choice, and because they care.
🖤 They have been clever with recycling or up-cycling in their designs as well as after your wedding.
🖤 They source locally to keep their carbon footprint low.
🖤 They embrace pre-loved or vintage.
BUT this doesn’t mean quality has dropped. Neither does it mean they don’t deliver the offbeat creative luxe weddings we are known for here at Magpie Wedding.
AND drumroll please… here are the AMAZING suppliers who will be joining us at The ECO Wedding Show…
