A wedding is a big event, not only symbolising the union of two people and their love for one another but also in the literal sense. All the guests attending, the suppliers and the energy consumed generate a large environmental footprint.
To make it simple for you, we calculate the average footprint per guest at a typical weddings to be 0.06 MT CO2. This is the equivalent of driving a car for about 300 km.
All you need to do is let us know how many guests will be attending and we will work out the rest for you. For every 30 guests, we will plant one tree which can offset as much as 22kg of carbon dioxide per year

To avoid the hot, harsh Portuguese summers, we will be planting the trees in October 2017. 50% of the trees will go to the Faia Brava reserve, located in the Coa Valley in the northeast of Portugal. This is the most ambitious rewilding project in the country, perhaps even Europe. The 1000+ hectares of privately protected land is home to wild horses, wild taurus, beech martens, polecats, wild cats, foxes and birds such as the Iberian imperial eagle, black vulture, kites, golden eagle, eagle owl and the Bonelli’s eagle. The remaining 50% of trees will go to land managed by our partners Montis. Their work focuses specifically on native fire-resistant forests to help avoid the type of disaster that killed 64 people in Portugal this summer.
