Taking care of the environment
We are lucky to be surrounded by drama and beauty and so, taking care of it is our responsibility. With that in mind, we aim to ensure our venue is as eco-friendly and sustainable as possible. We are as passionate about reducing our carbon footprint as we are about offering our couples and their guests a wedding with the wow factor. To ensure our menu miles are as low as possible, the food we serve is from local suppliers, with locally sourced, seasonal food and a variety of menus to choose from, including plant-based. We can even offer a menu that includes foraged food.
Eco-friendly wedding décor
Sustainability is a prime consideration in our decisions, running large historic houses. And with our houses set on large private estates, this means you can forage and design your eco-friendly wedding from the outside in. Most wedding décor heads to a landfill after the big day, from confetti to balloons, exotic flowers to bunting. For this reason, we encourage brides to forage locally for foliage and flowers to decorate with. In short, your day should be fabulous without harming the environment. Moreover, much of what you need can be sourced locally. Plus we can guide you to the best suppliers nearby, whilst encouraging your guests to be as committed to being as eco-friendly as possible.
Eco-friendly right to our roots
We work hard to be sustainable in every area, by recycling everything possible and constantly working with our waste disposal partners. In addition to reducing our waste, our staff car-pool to every property turnaround, and we work to source environmentally friendly cleaning products. We discourage the use of single-use plastic products like cups, plates, and straws. And, disposable items are necessary, we encourage these to be biodegradable.
Being eco-friendly is an ongoing commitment that takes planning and hard work. Working with our recommended chefs and knowing how many people will be at each wedding ensures your wedding food waste is low. If there are leftovers, we encourage consumption during your stay, or we will compost anything that’s left.
Stuckgowan Estates are 100% committed to improving everything we do. We will continue to work at reducing the impact we, our staff, and our guests have on the environment.
