The Green House Hotel in Bournemouth, England has launched the United Kingdom’s first all-vegan wedding package. To build the package, the boutique hotel and wedding venue partnered with local vegan suppliers to provide vegan options for all aspects of the events. “We’d noticed such an increase in vegan weddings, which had also become so well-known among our vegan suppliers, that we decided to create this vegan wedding package,” Green House Hotel manager Olivia O’Sullivan said. The package includes a catered vegan menu created by hotel head chef Andy Hilton, a vegan wedding cake by Lucie Love to Bake, hair and makeup by cruelty-free beauty brand Greener Beauty, vegan footwear by designer Charlotte Mills, and organic, fair-trade wedding flowers by Hillview Flowers and Events. “We hope to offer the very best in luxury for our vegan wedding parties,” O’Sullivan said. “Our dedicated team of personal wedding planners is on hand every step of the way to ensure your day is perfect. The team will happily assist with everything, from wedding stationery, dresses, and flowers to chauffeurs, photographers, and entertainment, with everyone absolutely committed to bringing wedding dreams to life.” Vegan nuptials have become increasingly popular in recent years. Earlier this year, social-media platform Pinterest revealed “How to plan a vegan wedding” was one of its top 13 pins in its “Food and Drinks” section, and fashion media outlet Vogue highlighted vegan menus as a top wedding trend in 2017.
