The Secret Wedding of Eddie & Rich… The Tattooed Bakers

When Bakers Get Wed…

Back in 2014 Mr & Mrs Unique travelled down to Devon for a photo shoot at Tunnels Beaches. Our models for the day were real-life couple Eddie & Rich; the incredible baking duo from The Tattooed Bakers.

If you’ve not heard of them before, I’m pretty sure you may of seen their work in some capacity via social media… They were the couple that were commissioned by Star Wars to create a Death Star cake to be blown up… They were the guys who made a life-size Delorean cake for Back To The Future Day… When the Friends set came over from America to exhibit in London, they were the ones asked to create a cake to celebrate the successful TV series… So yeah, its kind of cake baking  in epic proportions!!

We had such a fun day down on the Devon coastline and at the end of the day Rich whispered something to the team… he was going to ask Eddie to marry him on their next holiday. I cant even tell you all how excited everyone was!

Fast forward to late last year and I got an email from Eddie saying they were planning a intimate wedding in the New Year with just a few guests to witness it, so I put her in touch with Mr & Mrs Unique photographers We Heart Pictures to capture their special day.

I couldn’t wait to see the photos! Luckily I have them here to share with you…

Tell us how you met and got engaged…

Rich owns a nightclub in Wimbledon and I used to go there every weekend hoping he’d notice me! In the end he did, but it took another six months and some very short sequined hot pants for him to ask for my number.

We share the same birthday, so go away on holiday every year. Two years ago we went to Mexico for our birthday and Rich proposed on the beach. He handed me a vintage X-Men viewfinder and told me it was my birthday present – inside was actually a personalized disk with photos of our life, our daughter, our cats and “Will You Marry Me?” as the last slide.

How would you describe your wedding theme…

Intimate, secret & just about us.

What were your main hopes for the day…

No stress, no drama and for the whole day to be about the two of us committing our lives to each other witnessed by four of our closest friends.

Was your favourite part of the day…

The whole day was perfect we can’t pick a perfect moment. But if we had to, it would be just before we fell asleep, we gave each other letters that we had written before the day. We wanted to do this instead of writing our own vows, as we wanted to keep this part completely private.

How was your day unique…

We kept our wedding completely secret – none of our family or friends knew except the four guests that were our witnesses. We shared the news with everyone the next day!!

What was your budget…

We wanted to keep the day as inexpensive as possible and ended up spending just over £3000 in total.

What was your biggest expense…

The meal at Hawksmoor – worth every single penny!! And the brides bag – which cost 6 times the cost of the dress!

How did you save money…

We didn’t invite any guests ;)

What was it like working with your photographer…

Absolutely perfect! It was like having a friend with us taking the photos. It was such an intimate and private day and Hector from We Heart Pictures was brilliant and captured exactly what we wanted.

Advice to any couples about to get married…

Do it however you both want to do it. Keep the traditions that you want, do away with the ones you don’t, and don’t be bullied by anyone telling you what you “should do!”

Huge congrats guys!!! Wishing you every happiness for the future Xx
