Introducing – Mr & Mrs Weddings!
Show-stopping street food, terrific tipis and the coolest camper vans in town – Matt and Lou Hardy are Wirral’s very own Mr & Mrs Weddings! From a love affair with food and festivals to a full-on wedding day empire, our loved-up pair are now creating extraordinary events for cool couples from across the land
We caught up with Mr & Mrs H to find out what fabulousness they have in store this season…
When you first meet Matt and Lou it’s easy to see why this partnership works. Matt the easy going (and super-talented chef) and his bubbly wife are the perfect match in life as well as in business.
When they started their first foodie venture, a gorgeous neighbourhood café, back in 2014 their beloved camper van affectionately known as the ‘Big Dub’ was left parked up and sad on the driveway.
Eventually, inspired by their three great loves, food, festivals and camping the pair hit upon the idea of combining their passions into a business and The Big Dub of Love was born.
Food, Festivals & Fabulous Events
Now transformed into an all-singing-and-dancing street food truck; once the Big Dub hit the road there was no stopping them.
Having quickly gained a reputation for excellence, Matt channelled his passion for globally inspired street food into an eclectic offering which was perfect for couple’s looking for a full-on festival theme or just a cool food-slam vibe for their night time nibbles.
Although the guys do offer a range of foodie packages from more traditional wedding breakfasts to gourmet style themed feasts and perfect picnics, its been the street food offering that has really captured couple’s imaginations (and taste buds!)
‘The Big Dub burger has become a bit of a signature dish,’ commented Matt, ‘They are so instagrammable and really do taste as good as they look – but we do offer a crazy range of dishes inspired by cuisines from the four corners of the globe.’
Couples can choose from delicious dishes including Tandoori & Garlic Infused Stir Fried Vegetables with Couscous; Harissa & Coriander Falafel; Panko Crumbed Cod with Asian Slaw; Halloumi Bites with Sweet Chilli Sauce & Crispy Onions; Salt & Pepper Fries… The list is endless!
The Big Tipi of Love
Not content with being the region’s street food supremos, the duo have now expanded their loved-up empire to include uber-fabulous Big Tipi of Love.
‘Having worked on over fifty weddings housed in tipis over the last couple of years we got to experience the highs and lows of weddings under canvas,’ commented Lou. ‘We always work so closely with our couples, inevitably we ended up helping out with planning and sourcing advice that went way beyond food. We found that couples’ experiences with tipi companies varied wildly from really good to agonisingly frustrating, so taking the leap with our very own tipi seemed like the next logical step.’
‘We can now help couples with their entire day from finding a suitable location to sourcing lighting, dressing, entertainment and of course the food!’
‘Having complete control of the day means we can eliminate a multitude of problems and take away the stress for our couples so they are just free to enjoy their day.’
So What Is Next For The ‘Big Love’ Empire?
The team are already planning another exciting Big Tipi Of Love Open ‘Tent’ Event in the autumn! We are thinking fire-pits and designer wellies guys – we can’t wait!!
