I truly can’t believe this time has come – March 2017, the month that I get to celebrate The Natural Wedding Company’s 10th Birthday with you all. And what a way I get to celebrate, with a month jam-packed with exclusive wedding offers from our fabulous suppliers just for you.
It doesn’t feel that long ago that I was just dreaming up the idea for the directory. I had little idea then that it would turn into a business that would become my ‘full time’ job. Just five years ago I was celebrating with a lovely group of girls in a spring party at my house. I’m even still really good friends with three of those girls – how amazing is that.
Here I am another five years on, and I’m delighted to share another month full of offers and goodies for you all.

We’ve put together all these exclusive offers in this one handy blog post. I suggest you grab a cup of something warm and set aside some time to digest the wonderful offers we have. There are offers covering all areas of your wedding, from wedding photography to wedding venues, wedding flowers to wedding rings. And more!
You’ll also find all these offers on our main Offers webpage, just look out for the ‘special offer’ badge marking them out. These offers are time-limited and only available to claim during March 2017.

For your diary – tomorrow morning we’ll be launching a very special birthday competition to win your wedding photography. This is such a wonderful offer coming from fabulous photography duo Bohemian Weddings. Full details will be on the blog tomorrow, and again, the end of March will be the closing date for entries.

Onto the offers…
Intimate woodland wedding with vows beneath a beech tree
I have such a lovely wedding to share with you today, which will be of extra interest to anyone considering a woodland or outdoor ceremony, because Christine and Joe had one of the most beautiful looking wedding ceremonies I’ve seen.
On a sunny August day, Christine and Joe were married in the grounds at West Lexham in Norfolk in an intimate woodland ceremony beneath the boughs of a red beech tree. “We wanted an intimate and joyous feel for our wedding, as if we were in the heart of our community and supported by them. It was important to us that everyone had a good time – despite having to work for it by making contributions!”
“We wanted to find somewhere that we could get married outdoors, near trees and water. I guess you could say it was symbolic to us as I love water and Joe loves woodlands. In personality, I think of Joe as the strong, grounded one, and me as the strong, flowing one!”
“We chose West Lexham because it felt like the right place – we could get married under the boughs of a beautiful red beech tree by a little river. Also, the site had camping in bell tents, a swimming pool, gardens, rowing on the river, as well as cottages and the manor house.”
The team from The Stunning Tents Company are opening their doors and welcoming you to their open weekend on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th November 2012. Situated in the middle of the Hampshire countryside, the team will have set up three Giant Hat tents and one Kungsörnen tent, all linked together and fully decorated with their range of furnishings.
If you’ve got specific ideas of plans and would like to discuss your wedding with one of the team in more detail, then do make an appointment for one of the days by calling 01256 882 114 or emailing email@example.com. As well as answering your questions, they will be able to take you on a tour of their facilities.
So as I mentioned previously Mr Rigg and I went down south to kick-start our wedding planning. We went to the Beautiful World Tents open day in Horsham, West Sussex. Beautiful World Tents provide a gorgeous range of big and small tipis for wedding receptions and events.
Ever since I first saw images of these tents a couple of years ago when researching for the Directory, I fell in love with them. Now that Mr Rigg and I are starting to think about our own wedding, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go and view these tents.
