The faces behind Mrs & Mrs Products...
Laura and Beatrice formed Mrs & Mrs Products as a direct result of their own experience in planning their Civil Partnership.
They celebrated their big day in May 2011, with a small ceremony at Warwick Register Office, followed by a wonderful party with family and friends.
Although their big gay wedding turned out to be everything they dreamed of (and more), the planning process proved a little tricky at times:
"Like every couple, we threw ourselves into planning our Civil Partnership and were very excited about it all, but it was quite disheartening to find that noone seemed to stock products specifically for the same-sex wedding market. We found "Mr & Mrs" products everywhere, but obviously these were no good for us!"

So, in April 2011, just a month before their own celebration, Laura and Beatrice began their extensive hunt for Civil Partnership products to fill their online lesbian and gay wedding store. It wasn't an easy task and it took three months to find enough products to justify opening, but in July 2011 the store was finally unleashed on the world!
The aim of Mrs & Mrs Products is to give everyone the chance to celebrate their big day in style.
The gay "wedding" is here to stay and it is only right that the lesbian and gay community has access to the same gorgeous products that the straight world has enjoyed for years.
