The Parish of Lullington with Orchardleigh

Beautiful Billowing Confetti

A sight to behold and a memory to treasure is when your wedding guests shower you in confetti. This time honoured tradition is thought to have originated from Italy back in the middle ages!

As a church, we are also passionate about protecting our environment and wildlife, therefore we kindly request that your guests only use flower petals, or biodegradable confetti. This quickly breaks down, causing less of an impact on the natural flora and fauna in our churchyards.

Confetti is permitted to be thrown in the churchyards but not outside our grounds. Please refrain from throwing confetti in our churches as it is really difficult to clean for services that follow.
