A Retro Bridal Shoot…

I was sent this colourful bridal shoot by photographer Rebecca Douglas who put together this shoot in a gorgeous Chateau.  A big group of fun, creative bridal folk took the trip over to France to work on this project including Mr & Mrs Unique suppliers Skinny Boy Weddings and Bubblegum Balloons.

Here Rebecca tells us a bit about the shoot…

When I booked Chateau Neuvillette, I could see how amazing the floor in the dining rooms was in the images and this inspired the use of geometric monochromes.

Looking at colour trends in weddings, more and more bold colours are shining through and I could see from fashion trends for 2015 that this is set to continue. So, Jenny at Bellaboo and Beau and I chose a bold palette of Kelly Green, Marigold, Hyacinth and Sunkist Coral which really popped against our monochromes. 

I love the invites that Whippy Weddings created and the epic macaron cake designed and made by Liz at Sylvia’s kitchen. Our goldsmith, Ami Blastock Jewellery created a bespoke range of geometric shaped jewellery for the shoot and a totally stunning head chain for the boho look.

A new Honeymoon destination… Galathee…


Galathee, Saint Martin, Ile De Re, France…

Today we welcome a new honeymoon destination, owned by Karon from Vintage-Events (who is already a Mr & Mrs Unique supplier!)

This stunning townhouse in the heart of Saint Martin De Ré, is an incredibly romantic and practical holiday home. It has been refurbished to an extremely high specification by an English Interior Decorator. The house sleeps 4.

There are two double bedrooms, two shower rooms, a very large salon, gorgeous newly fitted kitchen with all new appliances, utility room, entrance lobby and very pretty garden room ready to enjoy those hot summer evenings.

For those quiet uninterrupted moments, there is a second floor level with a desk, WIFI, and the best view of the sea. This house is ideally located for exploring the beaches, villages and markets of Ile de Ré by bike. Bike hire is just a 2 minute walk from the house.

On arrival you will receive a welcome pack of delicious local jam, wine, bread and butter.

Swoon! Just need an excuse for a cheeky get away with the Mr now! To find out more visit the directory here
