JOIN OUR ECO-ETHICAL COMMUNITY
We’re more than an online resource or a directory; we’ve been driving cultural change and eco-ethical awareness in the wedding industry since 2016. We’d love you to become a part of our rapidly growing network of like-minded people who care about our planet and inspire others to do the same!
The Less Stuff – More Meaning eco-ethical wedding directory is here to celebrate wedding businesses for good. We believe you are the future of the wedding industry, and together we can bring about social change by making eco-ethical choices more accessible.
Our directory is a curated collection of wedding change makers, open only to those who are consciously working within ethical, sustainable or socially minded principles.
WHY JOIN US?
Almost 70% of couples we spoke to during our Wedding Footprint Calculator survey ‘always’ or ‘usually’ think about the environmental impact of their wedding when making decisions. Yet couples also said the biggest barriers to having a more mindful wedding included lack of information and difficulty finding vendors and venues. Help us make it easier for couples to go eco-ethical!

YOU’RE PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER, WHICH SIMPLY FEELS GOOD
Most couples in our Wedding Footprint Calculator survey said that very few suppliers talked to them about environmental considerations…meaning there’s a huge opportunity for #teamless vendors to lead the conversation and use the Wedding Footprint Calculator as a planning tool.
“Do you have any websites to steer us towards as we plan for the wedding? Given the enormous carbon footprint of the guests’ flights, it would be good to think about minimising the environmental impact wherever else we can.” An enquiry from a client of Lina Hayes, Photographer.
“Everyone needs a community to thrive! And being a part of a like minded community can create traction that will create positive change. Looking after our planet also means looking after our hearts. A collective becomes a movement and a movement…moves mountains!” Katie Reeve, Celebrant.

In any way you can! If you’re not ready to join our directory, you’re welcome to make the most of our free educational social media illustrations to share the eco-ethical wedding message with your audience.

IN YOUR WORDS
“You’ve really set me on a new course in my business and it’s so exciting. I’ve re-designed and re-worded my website to speak directly to my more ideal client. It is definitely attracting ‘my people’ which is so great!” Kat, Red Eclectic.
“I believe in simple living. Everything in nature is simple, yet exotic. No two things are the same. Moving away from our roots has caused the Earth and her ecosystem great damage. I believe that the awareness that you are trying to build through your platform is the need of the hour and more importantly, it’s in line with what I resonate with.” Kiran & Nara, Eco couple.
“I’m big on values and am always banging on to my couples about using their core values and beliefs to inform and influence their decisions when it comes to wedding planning. It makes sense that I take the same approach when it comes to my business…So when I discovered Less Stuff More Meaning, I knew I had to be part of it.” Andrea Calodolce, Celebrant.
“The wedding industry has a lot of wedding resources that promote materialistic, expensive and exhaustingly long ‘to do/to buy/to conform to’ lists and standards. Both the Less Stuff – More Meaning website and the Mindfully Wed E-Guide are the antithesis of that mentality. They are refreshing and calming and make the experience much more enjoyable, and help you to create a wedding that reflects you both and aligns with your values and beliefs…not the wedding you think you should have.” Emma & Brad, Less Stuff couple.
