Liam & Fiona’s Inky Bicycle Engagement [Tattooed Bride Blog]

Look what arrived in my inbox! From Laura Babb of this cute picnic wedding complete with bicycles & a trip to a tattoo studio, I couldn’t WAIT to share these images with you!

Liam’s story:

“Fiona and I have been together for about a year and a half, and in January this year we decided that we would like to get married. I say “we decided” as before meeting each other marriage really wasn’t on the cards or in the thoughts of either of us.

The decision to get married was the easy bit… I then had to plan and pull off the proposal. Funny way round of doing things I know but I really wanted to ask Fiona to marry me properly. I decided to cook Beef Wellington, the dish I cooked on our first proper date as she had mentioned it was her favourite.

Date night was on, the Wellington was in the oven, the wine was on the table, all was going well. Trying not to show I was feeling a little nervous as I had never asked anyone such a big question before, I served dinner. We had just started eating I had moved the vintage family ring from my pocket into my hand then some words from Fiona that I really didn’t want to hear “If you’re not going to propose tonight you’re going to find it hard to top this”.

Well that certainly took the element of surprise out of the evening. I tried to regain some composure, managed to get down onto one knee before the tears started “Will you make me happy for the rest of my life? Fiona will you marry me?” then the best word said with tears running down her face “Yes”.

We decided to have a pre and post wedding shoot as Laura Babb, the photographer we wanted to work with, was unable to make it up to Grimsby for our wedding.”


From sipping the champagne & eating berries in Brockwell park on a Sunday morning to pushing bicycles & eating cake, Laura captured Liam and Fiona in such a fabulous way! Fiona went and celebrated their engagement by getting a tattoo.. (which Laura also snapped some pictures of!)

Look through the shots to see Fiona’s lovely engagement tattoo & Liam’s epic Frank Turner tee!

Do leave some wonderful comments for Laura and the fantastic couple!
