Hannah, the person behind the brand and planner of eco weddings

Hey ...

I’m Hannah, the friendly wedding planner at Green Soul Weddings

I’m passionate about all things love, personalised weddings, and sustainability. 

This photo sums me up pretty well. I’m a lover of the great outdoors and believe nothing beats a big sky and a gorgeous sunset. I love going for walks, exploring quaint little village streets, trying out a welcoming cafe (or two!), and spending quality time with my family and friends. If I’m not outdoors you’ll find me tucked up in my Cambridgeshire abode, busy making plans or snuggled up in front of a comedy show, documentary or biopic film.

I’m a caring soul that loves people, their stories, and the world around me. My mantra is ‘To make a positive impact so that quality of life can be enhanced’, striving to consider the impact of each of my actions and make that impact a positive one. I care about the impact I have, whether that be on you as a couple, on the supplier teams I work with, on our wider community, on animals, on nature, or on the planet as a whole. 

Why Wedding Planning?

Green Soul Weddings began from my love of all things beautiful, creative and well organised. I’ve had many creative hobbies across the years, from cake decorating to photography, scrapbooking to crochet, and I’ve always loved losing myself in a creative atmosphere. I thrive when I get to take responsibility and apply my closest attention to every minute detail, whether that be on a creative or organisational task, and after following a career path that was leaving me feeling unfulfilled I identified that these creative and organisational sparks in me just weren’t being nurtured.

After a EUREKA moment I realised that the wedding industry would allow me to combine everything I love into one; a career where I get to work in a visually creative and beautiful atmosphere whilst using my organisation and detailed skills to make a positive impact on the smooth running of your special day! Having spent years being inspired by weddings in my various creative pursuits, it had finally dawned on me that wedding planning is exactly what I should be doing!

Two years down the line I have been studying with The Wedding Academy, the leading online wedding industry educator, and have been completely honoured to gain tonnes of hands-on experience with a well-established local wedding planning duo. From these foundations the seeds were sown, and now here it is, Green Soul Weddings is the seedling I’m so excited to be growing.

Why Eco-conscious weddings?

Throughout my journey so far, I have observed how wasteful the whole of the wedding industry can be, with one dream day leaving behind a less than dreamy amount of waste, carbon footprint and impact on the world around us. As someone who loves nature and cares that our delicate world remains in balance for future generations to enjoy, this impact just didn’t sit right with me.

I have always taken steps to reduce my personal footprint on this planet; from my love of scouring charity shops for my next wardrobe addition, to being the recycling queen in my University digs and being known for never seeing food go to waste (I’m sure they mean human dustbin in an endearing way!!). With this passion blending across into my business mission, Green Soul Weddings is designed to show that weddings don’t need to have this unnecessary negative impact.

As an eco-conscious wedding planner, each of my services embrace this approach and I opt to teach rather than preach. I recognise that we are all at different places along the eco-minded continuum, so the planning journey we go on together reflects this. I love the term ‘perfectly imperfect’ when it comes to being environmentally aware, recognising the controversy and issues that surround working out what is ‘best’ for the environment and ensuring that, at the very least, we are trying our best in a way that suits us, even if this isn’t seen as perfect by everyone! I love working with couples who are willing to consider and take steps, however big or small, to produce their dream day in a more environmentally conscious way.

What can i do for you?

As your wedding planner, I get to know you and your story, and I have the privilege of helping you to create a day that truly reflects you both. I help you to plan your wedding with as much input and advice as you desire along the way, with services ranging from full planning to providing expert advice for your self-planned extravaganza. I pride myself in making a positive impact; minimising your stress, maximising your enjoyment, and removing the challenges wedding planning can uproot, especially the inconvenience typically associated with making sustainably driven decisions. I care that your day is exceptional, true to you both, true to your eco-credentials, gives back, and respects the planet we get to call home, and that is what I deliver!

I listen to your ideas, your dreams, your visions, and I’m not here to get in their way! It’s your day your way and the decisions always remain your own, even if your dream wedding includes aspects that are not environmentally ideal. Throughout the process, I ask that together we consider the impact of each decision and which alternatives would be available to you, always aligning these with your specific style, personality and budget and keeping you in control.
