Sustainable Love: Harry Potter Star Bonnie Wright's 100-Year-Old Wedding Gown Inspires Eco-Friendly
Harry Potter's Bonnie Wright's Eco-Friendly Wedding Sets the Trend for Sustainable Celebrations.
Actress Bonnie Wright, who played Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter film series, recently tied the knot in a sustainable wedding ceremony on a farm. The trend of sustainability has been making its way into the wedding industry, with couples finding unique ways to reduce their carbon footprint and lessen their impact on the environment.
Wright's wedding, which took place in March 2021, was held at the Ecology Center, a farm in California owned by two friends of the couple. The farm is committed to promoting ecological sustainability, and Wright felt that it was the perfect location to reflect her love for the environment.
In an interview with Brides, Wright explained that it was important to her and her husband to use sustainable materials and avoid single-use packaging at their wedding. They also aimed to source everything locally and seasonally whenever possible, and to incorporate their creativity by making things themselves.
One of the standout sustainable features of the wedding was Wright's wedding gown, which was over 100 years old. The actress opted to wear a vintage dress from Happy Isles, a vintage salon in Los Angeles. She was drawn to the idea of wearing a dress with character and a story, rather than buying something new.
"I knew I wanted to wear a vintage dress. There are so many beautiful dresses already out in the world full of character and story. I luckily knew of a brilliant vintage salon in Los Angeles called Happy Isles that has great taste," she said.
The dress needed some work before Wright could walk down the aisle, as it came without an underdress and was see-through. But the actress saw this as an opportunity to get creative and design a unique underdress to go with the vintage gown.
The couple also chose to wear wedding rings that were made by Wright's parents, who are jewelry designers. And while Wright opted for a vintage dress, she did wear something new as well: a pair of silver Prada shoes to complete her wedding look.
As more and more people become aware of the environmental impact of their actions, it's encouraging to see sustainable practices being incorporated into traditionally wasteful industries such as the wedding industry. From vintage dresses to locally sourced food, couples are finding creative ways to make their weddings more eco-friendly and sustainable.
Wright's wedding is a great example of how sustainability can be incorporated into even the most special and memorable moments in our lives. By opting for vintage or sustainable options, we can reduce our impact on the environment and create a more sustainable future for ourselves and future generations.
