Creative Dreamers Magical Barn Wedding at The Giraffe Shed

Magical Creative Wedding at The Giraffe Shed…

We are beyond excited to be able to share this dreamboat of a wedding, the first-ever at MMU supplier’s The Giraffe Shed.

We’ve swooned over the perfect countryside setting, the blank canvas modern barn with endless possibilities so it’s such a thrill to see how this American Groom and Welsh Bride created their dream day there.  And what a day it was filled to the rafters with a shed load of incredible DIY projects – hand-dyed linens, custom artwork alter backdrops, hand-stamped place cards, home-roasted coffee favors and so much more.

The multi-talented bride even took a course to be able to master the floral styling on the day, with the exception of the bouquets which were lovingly prepared by the wonderful Grace & Thorn. And just wait until you see the bridal outfit, only an Odylyne The Ceremony gown with personalised Hermione De Paula veil.

Bravo Zach & Hannah, bravo.

Zach & Hannah…

How did you meet and get engaged?

ZachWe met in Northern California. She showed up to a music gig I was playing and I saw her across the room. I recognized her from a previous event so I made my way over and asked her to dance. Thinking I had been the one to make the first move, little did

A Magical Desert + Marrakech 3 Day Wedding…

Hi everyone, I hope you are keeping well and safe.

Today I share with you this incredible destination wedding –  transporting you from your home to the magical, dusty and colourful landscape of North Africa.

Clare and Alan’s love of traveling inspired them to get wed somewhere unique and different… and what a celebration it was! They partied for two nights in the beautiful Riad BE in the Old Medina of Marrakech and then traveled with their friends and family to Scarabeo Camp, a luxury tented village in the Agafay Desert.

Over to Clare and Alan to tell us more about their celebrations…

How did you meet and get engaged?

We met about 6 years ago through a friend and instantly connected we both loved traveling, art, music and the great outdoors and wanted the same things from life. That was it, we have been together ever since. Alan proposed on my birthday in bed with a cup of earl grey…not wildly romantic but perfect in every way! 

Was there an overall theme to your day?

We wanted to let our venue do the talking the camp is filled with Moroccan rugs lamps and easy sofas so we took inspiration from the beauty of the landscape with a palette of yellow ochre and

Creative & Colourful Woodland Wedding at Walcot Hall, Shropshire

A wedding day with two wedding dresses (one of them red) and a woodland ceremony where the bride and her gang arrive on the back of a vintage Chevrolet pickup? I mean, what’s not to love?! Gemma & Xavier’s epic wedding weekend took place at one of Mr & Mrs Unique’s fab supplier venues, Walcot Hall in Shropshire.

Over to the venue to tell us a bit more about this memorable wedding weekend…

Walcot Hall

What did you love about the couple and their ideas for their wedding day?

Gemma & Xav really got Walcot Hall. They loved the wedding venue just as it was, but also saw great potential in many other areas around the estate, hoping that they could ultimately do something a bit different to really put their own stamp on the day. We have a fairly flexible approach to weddings and secretly love it when couples come to us brimming with ideas, thinking outside of the box.

Gemma & Xav run a creative studio in London so we knew from the beginning that they were going to create something truly special and totally unique to them!

If you could describe their day in three words what would it be?

Creative, colourful, authentic!

Siobhán and Toby’s cool London wedding definitely nailed their original brief…colourful, casual, non-traditional, authentic and modern!

The bridal party all wore trousers, they had neon signs decorating every corner (cue Mr & Mrs Unique favs Vowed and Amazed), the food was off-the-hook delicious and they choreographed a Riverdance routine with their bridesmaids and groomsmen as a surprise for their first dance… this is one to see!!

Over to the couple to tell us a bit more about their amazing day…

Siobhán & Toby

How did you meet and get engaged?

We met at university and ended up proposing to each other! We’d been together for 10 years and had been discussing it for a couple of years. We wanted to do it in a way that felt ‘equal’ rather than one of us going off and planning it all then just “surprising” the other. So we came up with the idea to go away for the weekend and both prepare words for each other as part of a joint proposal. It was surprisingly emotional and special despite us both knowing in advance.

Was there an overall theme to your day? If so, what was it?

Colourful and comfy! We wanted the atmosphere to be relaxed and fun with lots of

Laid Back Bristol Wedding with Epic Bridal Style

We love it when a couple buck a couple of the obvious wedding traditions but non more so than an alternative-to-white wedding dress. Charlotte’s choice; a sunshine yellow Outline dress and statement shoes, made our heart sing!

How did you meet and get engaged?

We met on Guardian Soulmates (old school online dating, before Tinder!) in Autumn 2012 – he took me to a romantic pub in Croydon for our first date and watched Sky Sports over my shoulder, obviously things improved after that.

We had our little girl in 2017 and got engaged in August 2018 when she was six months old. He took us on a walk in our local cemetery (trust me it’s beautiful) and asked me; ‘what do you want to drink with your tea tonight?’. I thought it was a bit odd but I replied ‘maybe I’ll have a G&T or something?’ to which he said ‘well would you like some champagne, and to marry me?’

Of course I said yes but he was so nervous he hadn’t
