Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you Megan and George’s elopement that took place in Cornwall with only two friends and photographer Jamie Webb of Webb Family Photography to witness. Because of the location, Jamie captured some gorgeous shots of them both and their friends enjoying their after ceremony picnic.
We both met when we were in school together starting a new class. George thought I was cute and stabbed a pencil into my leg to get my attention! Well, I guess it worked, because 5 years later we’re married!
The whole day was pretty much DIY! We washed our car because we packed everyone into it to drive down, we also made sausage rolls for the picnic we had, the presents from our guests were homemade too! It was a really casual day which really suited us, but the sausage rolls were definitely the highlight.
There were parts that represented us as a couple – George wore Batman converse because we both love reading comics together, it definitely felt like I was marrying him.
Seeing each other for the first time was a highlight of our wedding day, we organised it to be in the back of my mother’s garden on my brothers memorial bench, which is a lot sweeter than it sounds. George had to close his eyes while I walked up, but once that moment was over everything was in motion, leaving for the registry office.
We don’t have any matching tattoos, but we are planning on getting some now we’re married. He wanted to get a mouse because Madame Maus is my stage name for burlesque, and I wanted to get a little barrel for him because hes ‘a Cooper!
Our day was casual and a lot of fun! Our advice would be to show off your tattoos. Don’t be afraid to go for it, or get a particular dress or suit to go with them; the trashy image of the tattooed wedding is gone. You’ll love going back over the photos afterwards and seeing them!
How cute is Megan and George’s elopement? Thank you to them both and to Jamie of Webb Family Photography for sharing their day with Marry Me Ink .
