The UK has some of the most talented Black wedding suppliers in the world. These skilled experts – from photographers and florists to makeup artists and caterers – will help you look and feel your best, capturing and treasuring the most special day of your life.

Hitched is committed to showcasing the best of the best in the wedding industry, and we acknowledge we haven’t been inclusive enough in the past. We’re beginning to put into action long-term strategies to change this – and we’ve started by compiling this list of 126 of the best Black-owned wedding businesses in the UK that deserve to be recognised for their creativity, passion and talent.

Start by following these incredible suppliers on Instagram, sharing their work and supporting their businesses. We know you’ll find suppliers whose work you adore and want working with you on your wedding day.

We want to thank everyone who has put together their own resources that helped us compile this list. We’re particularly grateful to Chenai of ByChenai Events and Mako of Berry and Brie (make sure you watch their Instagram story highlight on being a Black supplier in the wedding industry); and Ofe of Studio Oudizo who has an amazing edit of Black suppliers on her Instagram and runs the beautiful @noireweddingedit.
