Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you Kira and David’s wedding from ZT Photography who I’m excited to have as part of The Tattooed Wedding Collective this weekend at The Tattoo Tea Party! They both got married at The Shireburn Arms Hotel in Clitheroe, Lancashire and it was full of fun on the day!
We actually met in a nightclub over 6 years ago. It sounds a bit like a film but it really was one of them moments where we both glanced across the room and caught each other’s eye. I said a few words to my friend and decided to pluck up the courage and walk over, however I got half way and freaked out so veered from his direction. As I turned he somehow managed to get in front of me which incidentally made me trip over his feet and into his arms. No words were said we just ended up kissing and now here we are married. I was hoping we could get married in the nightclub but unfortunately it got shut down.
We had a variety of things really that represented us, we are quiet quirky I would say and like to be a bit different especially with it being our actual day. Dave’s a bit of a MOD so was great to see all the valleys scooters come together and surprise him on the big day. We also love Northern soul so I asked a young dancing group called ‘Young Souls’ to entertain our guests at night – They can do some incredible high kicks!
We actually did all of the décor ourselves to safe a bit of cash but it was great to put our own spin on things – I love pin ups so I wanted there to be an element of these within our wedding. The table plan was made up of playing cards which had pin ups on them. I also kept all the pin up calendars that I had over the years, so decided to use within the centre pieces. We cut out all the pictures and then painstakingly glued them to each book that would prop up our teapots (which we also painted) . I also made bunting out of some pin up shower curtains we found at Asda to hang outside!
Dave proposed by sealing my ring in a kinder egg so we had to have these as favours for each of our guests. To hold these though we just ordered some brown paper bags, tied with some lovely green string and then stamped each one with that persons name. This took forever as we bought a box of single letter stamps for around £2 as we had over 60 guests!
How awesome is Kira and David’s MOD Lancashire wedding?? Thank you to them both and to ZT Photography for sharing with Marry Me Ink – Don’t forget that Zo will be with us all weekend as part of The Tattooed Wedding Collective and The Tattoo Tea Party – See you there!
