Creative & Colourful Woodland Wedding at Walcot Hall, Shropshire

A wedding day with two wedding dresses (one of them red) and a woodland ceremony where the bride and her gang arrive on the back of a vintage Chevrolet pickup? I mean, what’s not to love?! Gemma & Xavier’s epic wedding weekend took place at one of Mr & Mrs Unique’s fab supplier venues, Walcot Hall in Shropshire.

Over to the venue to tell us a bit more about this memorable wedding weekend…

Walcot Hall

What did you love about the couple and their ideas for their wedding day?

Gemma & Xav really got Walcot Hall. They loved the wedding venue just as it was, but also saw great potential in many other areas around the estate, hoping that they could ultimately do something a bit different to really put their own stamp on the day. We have a fairly flexible approach to weddings and secretly love it when couples come to us brimming with ideas, thinking outside of the box.

Gemma & Xav run a creative studio in London so we knew from the beginning that they were going to create something truly special and totally unique to them!

If you could describe their day in three words what would it be?

Creative, colourful, authentic!

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
