Bridal Shoot, Shoots
A Unique Extraordinary & Eccentric Bridal Shoot

Mr&MrsUnique at Aynhoe24


Afternoon lovelies :-) This afternoon i have the pleasure of sharing a very unique shoot organised by my lovely friend Erica of Mr & Mrs Unique, a wedding directory full of creative wedding suppliers. Erica told me;

“I wanted to create something special to celebrate Mr & Mrs Unique’s first year, a unique wedding photo shoot that showcased our colourful array of suppliers; a blend of the extraordinary, talented, the crazy and downright amazing!

I decided to hold the photo shoot at the opulent Aynhoe Park, with its tasteful excess and eccentric decoration of art and curiosities collected from around the world, I couldn’t think of a better backdrop for our suppliers!”

Erica got together some of Mr & Mrs Unique’s amazing suppliers with Alexa Loy who photographed the shoot and Draw Down The Stars who captured it all on film. I love the eclectic array of decor, the magnificent backdrop of Aynhoe Park with it’s amazing taxidermy and the brilliant fashion.

Thanks so much to Erica and all involved for letting me share this lovely lovely shoot today.
