Enjoy a ‘pop-up’ wedding and share the cost of your big day with strangers

AFTER popping the question, couples can now marry in a two-hour ‘pop-up’ wedding, believed to be the first business of its kind in the North-East.

Entrepreneur Faye Darcy (pictured above) and her team of suppliers take out all the stress – as well as expense – by organising a venue, decorations, civil celebrant, wedding cake, flowers, photographer and a champagne toast for under £2,500. All newlyweds have do is pick a date and show up on the day.

A pop-up wedding is in essence a luxury elopement that allows couples to share the cost of  wedding suppliers with other couples who want to get married on the same day.

Each ceremony has at least an hour in between to ensure couples have their exclusive time.

Her newly launched company, Faye Darcy Pop-Up Weddings, provides a range of all-inclusive two-hour marriage, vow-renewal and commitment ceremony packages, for couples to choose from in locations set across the region.

The 24-year-old, who lives in North Tyneside, was inspired after a stint working in Australia in 2015 where the idea is already popular.

She said: “Pop-up weddings are a simple and elegant alternative to the more traditional wedding. Couples literally pop in to the wedding venue, get married then pop out

“The ethos is to give people a luxury, no-expense spared wedding but without a huge bill at the end of it, while allowing them to focus on enjoying themselves instead of having to think of every detail and months of stressful planning.”

Faye played an integral part in running Gold Coast Pop-Up Weddings, based on the Gold Coast, Eastern Australia.

Founder, Bree Nicholls, said: “Faye is a very talented wedding and event planner, whose insight and know-how is exceptional. She supported me during the start-up stages of my business and played a huge part into getting Gold Coast Pop-Up Weddings to the successful company it now is.

“All of our couples commented on how dedicated she was to them and their special day. I wish Faye all the success into bringing the concept of pop up weddings to reality in the UK.”

Faye added: “Prices of traditional weddings are on the rise. I believe that pop-up weddings will be seen as the wedding option in the future, and are perfect for the more adventurous couple who really want to focus on having fun on their special day.”
