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

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

The Relaxed + Personalised Derby Wedding of Emma + Peter

A Quirky, Cool Wedding Day…

What’s not to love about todays real wedding of Emma & Peter, held at The Meynell Langley, in Derby; captured by the lovely Lisa Jane Photography (Rangefinder’s 30 Rising Stars of 2015 no less!)

I adore Emma & Peter’s personalised wedding day which they shared with their friends, family and favourite fur babies (dogs Hiro and Miso). The day was a relaxed affair with a cool marquee, pizza + ice cream for tea, a book cake and some awesome stationery from Mr & Mrs Unique suppliers Emmy Designs

Why you love this wedding…

I loved that they took all the normal wedding traditions but made them their own. It was completely personal. From the couple making sure their dogs could be present for the ceremony to their book inspired wedding cake. There was an element of the couple’s personality in every part of the day.

What were the couple’s requirements…

The couple wanted something relaxed and had both mentioned they were not keen on having their photos taken. More than anything Emma & Peter wanted a photographer who would fit in on the day and document the story. After our initial conversation, we realised we had very similar taste in music, film and books and I knew we would get

Over to Tanya & David to tell us more about their big day…

Tanya & David…

Tell us how you met and got engaged…

We met through boredom!  We lived in separate flats in the same block of flats in Cardiff Bay – our flat mates were mutual friends, but we had never met one another.  When both our flat mates went away on holiday, we were separately exchanging texts with them saying how bored we were.  Tanya’s flat mate, Bexs, suggested she drop in on me to say ‘hi’.  Tanya did just that… the following weekend we went out for drinks and the rest is history!

We got engaged whilst on a group holiday in Ibiza – we were out there to celebrate our friends’ joint birthday.  Whilst we were there it was our 5 year anniversary.  David booked the ‘Amante Table’ experience at the gorgeous, beachside Amante Restaurant, near Santa Eularia.  We had our own little beach hut away from the main restaurant and had the most amazing 5 course meal.  The waitress brought my
