It was the perfect opportunity to get some pre-wedding photos! We talk Poppy about the inspiration behind the shoot and also to Charles and Benjamin about lockdown, changing their wedding plans, and what they are planning for the future…

I just love this festival fun shoot! It is full of fun and laughter – the two key ingredients of a wedding! The goal of this shoot was to showcase how weddings can be full of colour, fun, and uniqueness. No wedding should ever be the same and you can see from this shoot how personal elements e.g. colours and props have been implemented to really make the day special! The suppliers who helped make this shoot so amazing were fantastic. They completely exceeded all of my expectations and this really is shown in the images. The colours work together so perfectly and each supplier

What was your inspiration…

The inspiration for this shoot was from a random internet photo of an Amphiocopus & an abstract painting by Christine Olmstead. When I saw the painting I knew I had to turn it into a cake. At first, the two were separate ideas until Chettara reminded me that the painting matched the mood board. Then the ideas were forever married! We planned the shoot around that. We reached out to our trusted vendor friends that we have worked with before to ensure that this could be pulled off!

If someone wanted to recreate this I think they would have to strategically handpick vendors. If they find one, they can ask that

Micro weddings, elopements, London venues and wedding advice from Lisa Jane Photography…

Micro weddings, elopements, London venues, and wedding advice…

Advice from Lisa Jane Photography

At the moment the government has allowed for wedding ceremonies of up to 30 people to go ahead. This means with the current restrictions that you can’t have a party afterward, but it does allow you to finally say ‘I do’ to the person you love. 

Every couple is different and every couple’s reason for getting married is different. Because of everything that has happened this year, so many couples have chosen to move their wedding to 2021. They want to have the wedding and the party they planned, that handpicked menu, those custom cocktails, and the band that’s guaranteed to get everyone dancing. Other couples just want to get married, to celebrate their relationship, and find some good amongst the chaos of this year and so are embracing the elopement or ‘micro wedding’.

I feel for every single couple faced with the decision at the moment, it’s a real mind field and there has been so much disappointment. It’s heartbreaking to watch your plans change and morph, to be taken away from you, and to figure out the next steps. But know this, whatever you decide to do…follow your gut, go with your heart and do what is right for you as a couple. You need to feel comfortable and

Glamorous Grunge Bridal Inspiration – The Ivory Edit by Bowen Dryden

Glamorous grunge bridal inspiration – Bowen Dryden’s Ivory Edit Collection…

At Mr & Mrs Unique we adore Bowen Dryden and the lovely Sharon, the designer behind the bridalwear brand. So when this awesome grunge-inspired shoot with an edgy punk styling twist hit my inbox, I knew I wanted to share it with you today.

As usual, a cracking team was put together to showcase key pieces from her Ivory Edit Collection.

Over to the team to tell us more…

The Team…

Bowen Dryden’s Ivory Edit is a collection of incredibly versatile pieces that can be worn in a multitude of ways. In classic Bowen Dryden style, we wanted to follow a less traditional look for this shoot. Dialing down the femininity seen in a lot of bridal wear shoots and took inspiration from punk styling and high fashion designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, and Saint Laurent. 

We toughened up the beautiful shapes and fabrics of the Ivory Edit pieces with black leather, spiked jewellery, boots, and grungy makeup and hair, showing that bridal wear, even all ivory, does not have to be classic. The Bowen Dryden bride is someone with great style and a fashion understanding so we wanted to reflect that in this shoot. Every silhouette can be worn in a modern way.

Bowen Dryden famously renowned for creating flamboyant coloured bridal
