Love is not cancelled – Lockdown love stories

Lockdown Love…

Zoe and Christian had planned a June 2020 wedding, which sadly was postponed due to the lockdown. Like many couples who have chose 2020 for their wedding year, they had to make the decision whether to move it to a later date when all their friends and family could attend, or wait until lockdown was lifted and have an intimate ceremony instead. They decided to go ahead with the later.

Their wedding photographer Stephanie Butt reached out to them and suggested a social distancing photo shoot to celebrate and mark their original wedding date. So off the three of them went to wonder the empty streets of Digbeth in Birmingham. I love the photos of them dancing in the empty graffiti streets; embracing in the rain and laughing under clouds of rainbow confetti!

Today we chat with them about how they felt about lockdown, how they made changes to their original wedding plans and what they learnt about the experience…

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, …
