What is Unconventional Wedding all about?
Our aim is to provide couples planning their wedding with an easy portal to reach the UK’s very best alternative wedding suppliers (or our tribe as we like to call them!). We definitely don’t do beige here! Search by category or by location – we’re one of the UK’s best alternative wedding directories crammed full of amazing wedding peeps who will help you create the most amazing wedding day.
Our aim is to break through the barriers which stop you finding those amazing suppliers which are potentially right on your doorstep. From small part time businesses to fully fledged venues, we have a wide range of awesome suppliers to help make your wedding plans a reality.
We’ll also keep you updated with the latest wedding trends and highlight the real weddings our suppliers are getting involved with. There’s lots of wedding planning advice as well (see the links below for more deets!) and you can access our Facebook chat room for real-time wedding advice. We’re a friendly bunch so why not come and say hello!
