    What if your wedding could help restore Scotland's wild nature?

A Wedding for the Wild brings couples, and their guests, closer to rewilding, allowing their big day to contribute to the transformational recovery of nature across Scotland.

SCOTLAND: The Big Picture operates a rewilding network covering more than 12,000 acres. By getting married in a unique venue surrounded by nature, offsetting the carbon footprint of your wedding, or replacing wedding presents with a gift to nature, you can help expand the network and create new habitats that lock away carbon and allow wildlife to flourish.

"Our vision is of a vast network of rewilded land and water, where wildlife flourishes and people thrive.

Peter Cairns, Executive Director

GET MARRIED AT A UNIQUE VENUE

Weddings for the Wild venues are partners in our Northwoods Rewilding Networkwhich brings together a group of farms, crofts, small estates and community woodlands, all committed to nature recovery.

Your wedding will take place in a beautiful natural setting, while your custom will help create new wildlife habitat in the surrounding area.

OFFSETTING YOUR DAY

Your wedding is an incredible life event but with a typical British ceremony and celebration producing 14.5 tonnes of carbon dioxide in just one day*, it can also leave a significant carbon footprint and contribute to climate breakdown. 

Imagine if you could get married and at the same time, offset some of that carbon and also provide a home for red squirrels, golden eagles or wildcats.

How does offsetting work?

The process of capturing and locking away carbon dioxide - the main greenhouse gas created through human activity - is known as carbon sequestration. By restoring a vibrant tapestry of natural habitats, rewilding creates carbon sinks, effectively trapping the carbon within the plants and soil.

How much does offsetting cost?

The London School of Economics recommends carbon should be priced at a minimum of £40 per tonne. With a typical wedding in the UK emitting 14.5 tonnes of carbon, an offsetting donation of £600 would be appropriate for most wedding days.

Offsetting donations are channelled into the creation of new native woodland, wetland and species-rich grassland across the Northwoods Rewilding Network.

GIVE THE GIFT OF NATURE

It’s nice to receive wedding presents but replacing material gifts with a donation to rewilding, sets your wedding apart. Asking your family and friends to mark your marriage by helping to create new, carbon-storing natural habitats, shows them that you’re committed to a nature-rich future. 

Gift donations are channelled into the creation of new native woodland, wetland and species-rich grassland across the Northwoods Rewilding Network.
