Gorgeous, fun filled, city wedding…

Afternoon!

Today we have this gorgeous wedding to share with you; the quirky wedding of Holly and Louise which took place at The Hide in Sheffield.

Tell us how you met and got engaged…

We met at school when we were 11! After school we lost touch and reconnected a few years ago via facebook after discovering we had both developed a love of snowboarding. We went out a few times as friends then one night, we went out and something just felt different. I don’t know what was in the drinks but we both say it was as if someone had just flicked a switch! Within weeks Louise was spending all her time with me and the kids and moved in ‘officially’ a year later.

What were your main hopes for the day…

The weather was a huge bonus! Getting married between Christmas and New Year we expected rain… or snow but we had one of those beautiful sunny winter’s days. It was absolutely freezing though but we got some fantastic pictures!!

Everything! We loved having our couples shots before the ceremony so we could spend

Flower Moon Party…

A few weeks back the lovely Sharon Cooper Photography attended Elmore Court’s Flower Moon Party; an evening to celebrate their recent renovations which include 8 new beautifully decorated bedrooms, plus a stylish bridal pad in the Coach House.

Elmore has been in the Guise family for over 750 years and it’s Anselm Guise, the current heir who transformed the estate from a private family home that needed work, into the stylish bohemian wedding venue it is today.  With his background of co-founding the Glade Festival and his wife Sarah being a co-founder of The Secret Garden Party, they have found the perfect alignment of being a great party pad but with all the luxury needs you would want for your big day.

I personally LOVE visiting Elmore; the incredible house, picture perfect grounds and the amazing team are everything you want from a cool wedding venue… a real home from home. When the invitation to attend the Flower Moon Party hit our desks we knew it was going to be a fun night! With a dress code of florals in honour of the May full moon (known as the Flower Moon,) guests were in …

I’m delighted to share with you this DIY on how to create an alternative foliage look. Deck the walls, create a backdrop or table runner. If you don’t have the machine to get your sew on, use hot glue instead!

What you need…

Sewing Machine and thread, paper, pencil, scissors and string.

Instructions:

Craft project,DIY,Mr & Mrs Unique,Paper leaves,fleur de Lace,paper leaf garland,party props,sewing project,wedding DIY,wedding decor,wedding decoration,wedding ideas,

1. Layer the paper and make a stencil so that you can draw around your leaf shape and cut out a few layers at a time.

2. Fold the leaves so you have a 3D effect. You can fold them in wads to save time. I pinched up to ¾ of the way up the leaf.

3. Set the sewing machine to a wide zigzag.

4. Sew in a straight line with your zigzag stitch up the string, adding the leaves at regular intervals.

5. You could sew to any length you want. I used around 30 leaves for each meter of garland.

The stitched string makes an awesome raw look. Hope you have fun, and you could use any shape and any colour.

Happy Creating

Why you should book an Engagement Shoot… Anneka + Stephen at Brixton Skate Park, London

A Sneak Peek at our Competition Winners…

A couple of months ago the lovely Francesca from Francesca Secolonovo Photography ran a competition with Mr & Mrs Unique for one lucky couple to win their wedding photography. Winners would also get a engagement shoot; this was so they could meet up beforehand and get use to being in front of the camera.

When Anneka & Stephan emailed us to tell us about their wedding plans, we knew we had to pick them as winners of the competition! We loved their ideas of a horse box bar,  homemade burger trailer, a rock band, all wrapped up with with tropical/boho theme (literally cant wait to see the outcome!)

They decided to meet Francesca for their pre wedding shoot at Brixton Skate Park as they both love the bmx and skateboarding scene… turned out to be just the perfect location for them!

When planning your photography for your wedding, do take advantage of scheduling in the pre wedding shoot. I always recommend one to my couples and it’s something I offer to all.
I know as a couple you are both very busy planning the big event and sometimes you may think your too busy to book this in, or you might not even initially be interested in it. But I think it’s

Was there any theme or inspiration for your wedding day?

There was no theme as such, but we are both designers, so I wanted there to be an element of that shown in the table settings. Each person had a different coloured Pantone card with their menu choices on and they were edged with copper – a colour that we used on our wedding stationary and throughout the wedding.

How did you find love?

We met at the Royal College of Art, London while we were studying for our Masters.

How did you try to make your day unique?

I tried to make it as unique to us as possible by designing and making as much of what we needed/wanted myself. This included the wedding stationary, the bouquet, the flower girls’ tutu’s, the button holes, the flower plank that hung from the beams, all the flowers in the venue, the table settings, the large snack jars, the kids treat bags and ice cream jars and the wedding cakes… I think I maybe
