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…

Creative, colourful, authentic!

This is especially true for young children, those with sensitive skin and the elderly. Consider having your ceremony underneath in some woodland, or under a canopy. Alternatively, why not provide some parasols for guests to put up when it all gets too much? Check out our marquee and tent page HERE for some ideas.

Another great way to prepare for a hot outdoors wedding is to arrange your aisle and seats pointing away from the …
