Here at Gavin Forster Photography, we’re passionate about all things ‘green’ and it’s always great to be able to connect with other companies who share our eco-friendly ethos. This week we’d like to talk about Paperless Wedding, who are a fab, innovative company, on a mission to cut the paper out of wedding invitations!
Before becoming a full-time professional wedding photographer, Gavin worked in environmental and community development, and that desire to help to make the world a better place hasn’t left him now he’s staring at life down a camera lens. So he was happy to get the chance last year to connect with Emma from Paperless Wedding.
Paperless Wedding allows couples to invite guests to their wedding online, saving paper and reducing emissions from delivery. Emma and her husband, Jim got the idea for Paperless Wedding in 2008 when they were planning their own wedding and looking for an eco-friendly, easy and cost effective way to invite family and friends. And the feedback from their guests was so positive that they decided to turn it into a business!
Using Paperless Wedding for your invitations means you can set up your own private account, pick your own theme and manage your wedding in one place – keeping track of who’s invited, who’s replied and accepted, and your gift list. Paperless Wedding keeps all your numbers in one place and you can then download them to share with your suppliers – no confusion, no fuss!
The site also offers a message board for guests to interact and a great gallery where you and your guests alike can upload photos of the big day.
Emma and Jim are a well-travelled couple, starting their married life in New Zealand and then Australia and launching Paperless Wedding in both countries before a move back to the UK led to them launching Paperless Wedding here in 2014. Their enthusiasm and the genuine passion driving Paperless Wedding ensures they will continue to grow and build on their success!

Gavin shares the same drive for an eco-friendly way of working – he offers environmentally-conscious clients the best possible package to suit their personal needs whilst having as little impact on the planet as possible. Gavin is also one of the few UK photographers to offer an eco-friendly wedding album. Check out his Eco Wedding page here.
