Ive been married for over 7 years to a man I fell in love with over 14 years ago. I love our little world we have created with our kids and growing number of pets… As long as I’ve got them close by I am happy!
Why did you create Mr & Mrs Unique?
When I got married nearly 8 years ago, I found it hard to source original and unique wedding suppliers- that was when the idea popped up in my head! Took a few years of dreaming about it, scribbling down ideas and collecting scrap books of ideas (the days before Pinterest!) before I sat down with a graphic designer to develop my ideas. Since then the wedding market has blossomed into a hive of creativity and I feel lucky to have such an amazing selection of suppliers on board.
Do you only feature wedding suppliers on your blog?
I only feature wedding/event suppliers on the directory but with the blog I will happily post about thing I love as a whole.. whether its art, photography, home interiors, or my family.
Whats in the pipeline for Mr & Mrs Unique?
We’ve had an amazing 4years and have grown an amazing network of like minded creative wedding and event suppliers. Our blog recently was recognised for Best Photography at The Wedding blog Awards and we were finalists for Best Bridal at The Cosmo Blog Awards. This year will see us take our online magazine into print and I have another exciting project alongside Alex from The Bijou Bride to launch!
What is your working background?
I studied fashion Design at Nottingham Trent University and then worked for over 10 years within the fashion/PR world working at amazing businesses including Esquire Magazine, Daily Telegraph, and Kurt Geiger.
Whats your favourite memory?
Well, other than (obviously) my wedding day and the days I brought my two gorgeous kids into the world… Spending the day with Kevin Spacey, having lunch with Hugh Grant and travelling around the Philippines score well up there!!
