The mere mention of planning a wedding fills numerous couples with equal amounts of glee and dread. Now add multi-cultural customs, different religions and perhaps dissimilar languages and you have an added level of complexity.

Fear not, the task at hand is not insurmountable. Whether you hail from neighboring countries with similar traditions or opposite sides of the globe, here are 10 things for you to think about to help you plan the wedding day of your dreams.

Get on The Same Page…

Yay, you’re engaged! Congratulations! Once the euphoria settles and you get into full planning mode, the reality of fusing different cultures into one wedding will set in.

Vibrant Moroccan Wedding Inspiration with Bohemian Vibes…

Vibrant Moroccan Wedding Inspiration with Bohemian Vibes…

I don’t know about you but I need a burst of brightness, an injection of colourful joy and this shoot provides just that.  Capturing the vibe of Morocco exquisitely, each supplier brought their A-game with an array of handmade and bespoke pieces which came together for an overall look that was carefully curated and perfectly on point.

Sit back and soak up the rainbow.

Where did you get your inspiration from? 

I decided to put together this Moroccan inspired wedding shoot after being inspired by the rich and vibrant colours of a recent trip to Morocco. I love colour, the more the better! I wanted to put something together to show brides and grooms to be that they can be inspired by anything and any place for their wedding, and to have fun and be creative with it!

How did you find the suppliers who made this concept come to life? 

I chose some amazing suppliers to help put my vision together and I was blown away with what was created, it exceeded expectations. I mostly contacted suppliers who I have been following on Instagram, loved their work and wanted to connect! We used the Tap Room at Missing Link Brewery in West Sussex as the venue, and I deliberately chose local suppliers from the South East to

She’s Like A Rainbow… Rainbow wedding inspiration and bridal style!

Rainbow wedding inspiration and bridal style…

Today is the day I finally get to share with you the photoshoot I worked on (with an awesome bunch of suppliers) back in Autumn last year.

It’s been ages since I’ve styled anything solely for Mr & Mrs Unique and I’ve been itching to get creative!

The theme we ran with was rainbows/weather (in pastel tones).  Rainbow-inspired bridal shoots are not uncommon but I really wanted to take a different approach with this… instead of throwing rainbows, glitter, unicorns, and a million and one different ideas at the shoot (which seems to be the norm,) I wanted the focus on creating shape, movement, beautiful bridalwear, strong makeup, and fun portraits.

On the day, there were just the three of us (the epic Lisa Jane, myself and the lovely Carina from Powder Blue Artistry). We used pieces from Bowen Dryden’s beautiful new bridal collection and a stunning rainbow dress from Halo and Wren Bridal. Location wise we were lucky to use The Farmhouse at Redcoats in Hertfordshire which offered gorgeous grounds including the surrounding cornfields. Accessories we keep simple and used statement weather inspired pieces from Wolf and Moon.

The results…  I loved so much that I used on the front cover of our newest lookbook which you can view HERE 

A huge thank you …
