She’s Like A Rainbow… Rainbow wedding inspiration and bridal style!

Rainbow wedding inspiration and bridal style…

Today is the day I finally get to share with you the photoshoot I worked on (with an awesome bunch of suppliers) back in Autumn last year.

It’s been ages since I’ve styled anything solely for Mr & Mrs Unique and I’ve been itching to get creative!

The theme we ran with was rainbows/weather (in pastel tones).  Rainbow-inspired bridal shoots are not uncommon but I really wanted to take a different approach with this… instead of throwing rainbows, glitter, unicorns, and a million and one different ideas at the shoot (which seems to be the norm,) I wanted the focus on creating shape, movement, beautiful bridalwear, strong makeup, and fun portraits.

On the day, there were just the three of us (the epic Lisa Jane, myself and the lovely Carina from Powder Blue Artistry). We used pieces from Bowen Dryden’s beautiful new bridal collection and a stunning rainbow dress from Halo and Wren Bridal. Location wise we were lucky to use The Farmhouse at Redcoats in Hertfordshire which offered gorgeous grounds including the surrounding cornfields. Accessories we keep simple and used statement weather inspired pieces from Wolf and Moon.

The results…  I loved so much that I used on the front cover of our newest lookbook which you can view HERE 

A huge thank you …

80’s Wedding Inspiration…

Morning folks! Today I’m super pleased to share with you this epic 80’s inspired bridal shoot which took place at one of my fav Mr & Mrs Unique wedding venues, The Giraffe Shed.

With some serious Desperately Seeking Susan vibes, bold statement pieces and pops of colour you’re gonna love this…

Over to the creative team to tell us more…

80’s Obsessions…

A shared obsession for all things 80’s was the catalyst for this styled shoot at the awesome Giraffe Shed, which is owned by the equally awesome Hannah from Rocksalt Photography. After some back and forth over our Instagram DM’s, we discovered a shared affinity for TV series like Glow & Pose, which seem to have triggered an 80’s renaissance recently. After a meeting back in May, we gathered inspo, sourced some dope garments & props, and I created new tulle accessories and veils in a flurry of inspiration.

We wanted to go all out with accessories, focusing on statement pieces, like huge tulle bows and offbeat veils with pops of colour and print. 80’s weddings may have a connotation with bad taste and all things naff – but we wanted to make the best of the decade and pay homage to the epic fashion, ethos, and attitude that the 1980s evoke. This shoot took us from girly pageant queens

Industrial Meets Boho Wedding Inspiration at 92 Burton Road…

Industrial Meets Boho Wedding Inspiration…

We have a real feast for the eyes today with this Industrial meets Boho bridal shoot held at East Yorkshire wedding venue, 92 Burton Road.

I love the fusion of these two styles – the modern bridal styling works perfectly with the edgy industrial vibes and colourful graffiti backdrop.

Over to the team to tell us more about the inspiration and her thought process behind it…

Industrial Meets Boho Wedding Inspiration: Cool couple portrait with graffiti background

Where did you get your inspiration from? 

The concept for the shoot at 92 Burton Road, was Industrial meets Boho – two of the biggest current UK wedding trends – to create modern, distinctive inspiration which is achievable for brides.  The warehouse venue is one of the coolest and most sort after venues in East Yorkshire and there are so many interesting spots around the city to capture great images, like the stunning mural at Kelham Island, only a short walk away.

How did you find the suppliers who made this concept come to life? 

Jen from My Pretties organised the shoot & had worked with some of these amazing suppliers before & knew she wanted to involve them. Others she approached directly, as a big admirer of their work. We were so lucky to have so much talent in one place with such stunning results, I can’t recommend each and every one

Bohemian Wedding Inspiration: Outdoors lounge area for wedding guests

Where did you get your inspiration from?

I love a traditional pole marquee such as the Celeste, they conjure up images of lazy days, relaxed parties and a bohemian style of living. The mixing of textures is always fundamental to my styling and I really wanted to include elements from the emerging fashion trends of African hints and the velvet textures inspiring visions of the 70’s. I wanted to keep an air of grandeur to the shoot so the vibe was Haute Boheme, free spirited and reminiscent of an unconventional lifestyle.

Bold prints were mixed with Autumnal colours of British grown blooms from Flowers at 58, coloured glasses and matte rose gold cutlery completed the tablescape. The peachy toned candles popped against the red and pink tones of the florals whilst the fabric swags helped add a sense of intimacy to the expansive marquee.
