I just want to share another great example of frugality and recycling that I read about in the Express recently – and all done without losing any of the joy and celebration in life:
A couple, Cherie Harris and James Mainwaring, approached their wedding arrangements in a rather different and heartening way.
Instead of paying the usual cost of a wedding breakfast for their 140 guests, they spent a mere £6 a head by sourcing a delicious meal from food that would otherwise have gone to landfill via The Real Junk Food Project.
Other eco-friendly touches included home-made invitations and decorations, a wedding dress lined with bamboo pulp and gifts of seeds as wedding favours which their guests could then plant afterwards…
Doesn’t this just show what can be achieved with a touch of imagination, ingenuity and co-operation.
