Vintage inspired wedding at the beautifully restored Victorian Baths Manchester // Victoria & Paul

Old friends Victoria & Paul reconnected at university and after a long long courtship tied the knot at the renovated Victoria Baths in Manchester. Both Mancunians they wanted to give back to the community and this unusual venue allowed them to add a pop of fun to their wedding, which included a vintage style photo booth and a bouncy castle. The vast venue holds 3 disused swimming pools and through considerate renovation it still holds its magical charm with rich green mosaic tiling, stained glass windows and even the original changing rooms. This special place is a blank canvas which you can make your own. Victoria and Paul did this through pom poms, giant pin wheels, festoon lighting, hand made flower arches.

Being An Ethical Bride: Plastic Free July – DIY Wedding Style!

Being An Ethical Bride: Plastic Free July - DIY Wedding Style! | British wedding blog - Bride and TonicThis month is all about Plastic Free July and ditching single use plastics – from the plastic bag that is used for an average 5 minutes, to the plastic straw, coffee cup and water bottle. We are totally on board this July and are already reaching for our stainless steel water bottles and canvas bags!

The big problem with plastic is that is is designed to last forever. Yes thats right forever, and when you consider how much single use plastic we use, it poses the question…where does it all end up?? Every single bit of plastic every produced still exists, and even though it breaks up it does not break down. It may get recycled but most plastic ends up in landfill or makes it way downstream to the oceans. Scientists actually predict that by 2050 there will be more tonnes of plastic in the ocean than tonnes of fish.

So thinking weddings, and particularly DIY weddings, how can you make your own a plastic free affair? We’ve got some ideas below and plenty more here on our Ethical Bride decorations post. Read on plastic free warriors!
