The South West’s first ‘Eco Wedding Fair’ is being held at riverstation, Bristol on Saturday November 3rd 2012. The fair is being organised by riverstation’s *award winning Wedding Co-ordinator, Michele Jetzer and Sally, our lovely events assistant. riverstation’s eco-friendly credentials make it the perfect venue for bringing together an exciting range of like-minded wedding companies; from on-line wedding invites and organic made cakes to alternative transport providers. There will be fashion shows and handmade workshops for brides to create items from flower buttons to favours.
The Eco Wedding Fair is being organised in response to the many requests Michele receives from future brides and grooms wanting to use local suppliers and seasonal food and flowers. Most couples are conscious of their carbon footprint and don’t want to forget about this on their wedding day. The fair is open to all getting married here in the UK or abroad, married couples, industry folk and anyone that is curious about the coolest eco things happening in weddings and events.
some of the exhibitors to date are:
Rachel Goodchild Designs (On-line invites)

Red Bird Makes (Eco wedding props and accessories)
Copoazu (Locally made Ice cream, served by bike and cart)

riverstation has always been environmentally conscious, making it the perfect venue for this wedding fair. Our steps include… having our own bee hive on our ‘green roof’, bottling our own filtered water, using seasonal produce, biodegradable bar sundries, flowers and local suppliers, planting trees in the restaurant’s orchard and making apple juice and elderflower syrup from these, recycling our cooking oil, cardboard, paper and glass, installing a heating exchange provision and encouraging customers to use our bike parking and boat mooring.
