Sarah Birrell and Mark Ivory's wedding/partnership grove

Sarah Birrell and Mark Ivory grove

Hi Everyone!

Having lived in places from Edinburgh to Singapore, we already have all we need in the way of toasters, so we though a great way to get wedding presents would be for people to donate a tree (or more!!) Not only will this help to keep the Highlands of Scotland the way they should be, it will also help to offset some of our wedding related carbon emissions!

Can't wait to see as many of you as possible down under!


Mark and Sarah

Add trees to this grove
