Tell me more about THE UN-WEDDING brand and the show!

Since launching two years ago, THE UN-WEDDING has become synonymous with awesome styling, directional thinking and fierce colour palettes. As a result, the brand has attracted partnerships with some of the wedding industry’s coolest brands – all of whom embody THE UN-WEDDING’s alternative approach to all things wedding.

Reflecting THE UN-WEDDING ethos #makenewtraditions and inspired by the talent already showcased in the exclusive Book of Love directory, THE UN-WEDDING SHOW is aimed strictly at the modern couple planning a one-of-a kind wedding day that truly reflects their personalities and encapsulates their relationship.

“Over the last two years, THE UN-WEDDING brand has established itself as a source of inspiration for those couples who want to cut to the chase and plan a day that truly
represents ‘them’, rather than go along with some outdated generic template carved out by so many in the wedding industry,” says Melissa.

“THE UN-WEDDING SHOW is the next logical step in my quest of introducing my audience of cool brides to their absolute dream wedding suppliers.”

THE UN-WEDDING SHOW will debut in February 2019 with three highly anticipated events to be held in unique and alternative wedding venues – Duke Studios in Leeds, Core Clapton in London and Fazeley Studios in Birmingham.

In keeping with THE UN-WEDDING aesthetic, brides and their tribes can expect to find cool bridal style at the core of each of event, with plenty of new ideas and fresh inspiration from THE UN-WEDDING’s handpicked selection of exhibitors.

THE UN-WEDDING has already received an overwhelming response from cool brides and their squads who understand that THE UN-WEDDING SHOW will be key in planning a wedding day to remember!

As Melissa explains, there are hundreds of wedding fairs out there for couples planning their big day, but very few are representative of what THE UN-WEDDING is doing:

Turning the industry upside down and encouraging couples to make their own traditions!
