A super kitsch same sex wedding Photo Shoot…

A 1980’s inspired kitsch photo shoot… 

When the wonderful Lau from Frenchmade, (an amazing cake baker and Mr & Mrs Unique supplier,) asked me to feature this kitsch, eccentric, fun photo shoot I was like; YES please!!

Not only did it feature some other amazing MMU suppliers including The Vintage Floral Company, Paola De Paola and Jo from The Couture Company, it was jam packed full of detail, colour, glitter and sequins… my kind of shoot!

Here Lau tells us the inspiration behind the shoot and a bit about each supplier that took part.. Enjoy!
