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.

This is my new favourite venue. I have been drooling over it for the past couple of months and am now drooling over these images! Love all the dresses! And if I were to re-do my day, it would be here!

Wow thank you so much for all the comments, means so much to me- the shoot was amazing to work on, the team were amazing, I would love to get married at Aynhoe! x

Some fabulous food shots (I’m a foodie lover!) – am off to source those amazing heart cookies. Great work (although not a fan of the animal usage if I’m really honest but if I close my eyes to those) love it x

I love this shoot! It is so different and individual! The dresses used throughout are simply stunning. And as for the champagne bar and animals- very creative!
