Ensuring it retains its pristine beaches there is an important focus on the threat of contamination from introduced plants brought onto the island. This also includes your wedding flowers on the big day.
All fresh flowers for wedding ceremonies on the island need to be given approval by the island authorities before they cross the 19km channel by boat or ferry.
