Lockdown, Wedding Postponement and the Unwedding of Hannah + Ben…

Lockdown, a Wedding postponement, and the Unwedding of Hannah + Ben…

Hannah and Ben are both in the wedding industry (Steel and Oak Co. photos + film) and when the pandemic hit not only was their business affected by the lockdown, they also had to postpone their own wedding!

Even with everything going on around them, as a wedding photographer and videographer duo, they did not want their wedding date to come and go without capturing it in some way. So they grab their best mate Xantha from Xantha Wedding Photography and hit the beach for some rather AMAZING portraits.

What Hannah didn’t know was that Ben had organised a surprise ‘Unwedding‘ gathering of a few close friends in their garden to remember the date in style! Yes, there were lots of tears, laughter and an epic ‘it was a shit day anyway‘ unwedding cake!

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!

The EWE team said ‘If EWE are looking to break out from wedding beige-ery then look no further.  EWE might think that wedding fairs aren’t for EWE but if you’ve not visited us before you won’t believe how much fun they can be.  There is truly something for everyone and with little lambs getting in free (please don’t turn up with any actual lambs…..we can’t let those in sadly) why not come along and see what all the buzz is about.”

The event returns to The Bond Company in Birmingham on 10th and 11th November, …
