Walking weddings- eco friendly and so beautiful
Stepping Beyond www.steppingbeyond.co.uk has launched an exciting new wedding service, Walking Weddings based in Herefordshire. This eco-chic service offers an unusual alternative to the traditional wedding, giving couples the chance to exchange vows in a stunning outdoor location of their choice.
"I want to encourage people to continue their green lifestyles on the most important and personal day of their lives." says Amanda Edwards, owner of Stepping Beyond. "Herefordshire's rolling hills and valleys provide the perfect environment for a dream wedding. Couples will love the romance of choosing their own backdrop, and the quirkiness of walking to it with their wedding party'.
The bespoke service includes a pre-planned walk to the special ceremony location, where the couple will exchange vows. They can also choose to have their reception and their accommodation hosted on the site.
The team has numerous partnerships with Herefordshire landowners, accommodation providers, civil celebrants and clergy to make each wedding match the imaginations and expectations of the bride and groom. Stepping Beyond can organize everything from eco-friendly transport to country garden flowers from green living favourite, Wiggly Wigglers, using local suppliers wherever possible to minimise the carbon footprint of each wedding.
"Walking amongst beautiful countryside is one of the most cathartic, mood enhancing things we can do", says owner and guide Phil Edwards. "I am keen to unearth new tracks and share areas of the county that time has forgotten - truly getting back to our roots".
