Welsh Green Weddings tipis

You may recall a couple of weeks ago I told you about a wedding fair that was being held at Welsh Green Weddings, one of our beautiful TNWC wedding venues.  Although I was unable to attend the day, lucky for us the lovely Nik from Little House in Town did go and today I get to share what she found with you all.

Back in July, Nik shared her experiences at the Catkin cut flower workshop (she was the lucky TNWC competition winner) and I’m delighted to have her back guest posting.

Grab a cup of something warm and enjoy.  Over to Nik:

If you’re a bride-to-be living in Wales, then you are one lucky lady.  This tiny nation may hold only 5% of the UK population, but it certainly knows how to send a message, loud and clear.  One such message was firmly delivered last weekend, as local green wedding suppliers convened on a field in rural Carmarthanshire for the Welsh Green Weddings Fair.
