The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza is Baaaack!!

The amazing Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza (EWE)  is baaaaack with a bang for Autumn/ Winter and it’s the perfect weekend to find all your alternative, edgy and baaaad ass suppliers for your wedding day.

Mr & Mrs Unique has been a proud sponsor for the past few years, and what I adore about the weekend and the hard working team behind EWE  (which includes the Jo from The Couture Company and Sassy from Assassynation), is that they really curate an incredible line up of suppliers; ones that will celebrate your uniqueness and your creative vision for your day. What I promise you is a welcoming and inclusive environment and there won’t be any weight loss, teeth whitening, exercise bullshit in sight! Halle-blooming-lujah!

If you’re thinking this all sounds like a ridiculously complicated vision, then you’re absolutely right.
