HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you this dark and beautiful bridal shoot from Stephan Burn Photography, A Peculiar Dream, VV Raven Floral, Rock The Frock Bridal and many more.

The inspiration for the shoot was influenced by V V Raven Creative Floristry. The decadent colour scheme with highlights of subtle metallic rose gold from their logo set the scene.

V V Raven’s passion is to inspire and excite couples willing to push the boundaries on their big day- working with them to reflect and enhance their own personality and creativity. Jo creates floral and fauna abundance with style and beauty.

Our collaborative vision was to convey a dramatic and imaginative visual. A bountiful banquet with cascading flora and fauna was to take centre-stage.

Around this, we built a corncopia consisting of a contrasting a moody and dark pallette, peppered with soft blushes, adding a more feminine warm edge.

E&W Couture – Beach Hut Brides

I have always love the sweet, ethereal style of E&W Couture (Which until recently I didn’t realise stood for  “Ears & Whiskers Couture” – Hence the rabbit ears on their logo!), so when Carly Turner Photography sent me this beach hut shoot, I just had to say yes to featuring it! Carly sent me little email with all the details about the shoot..

I’m a wedding photographer and love shooting weddings, but I also love all the girly bits – especially the dresses! I photographed a wedding in the Spring and my bride had this really simple, unique two piece outfit (long skirt and seperate strapless crop top). The bride had told me that it had been made by E&W Couture and that I should check out the website as they had some really gorgeous stuff.

I got in contact with E&W Couture and ended up arranging to use their dresses on some styled bridal work. I chose dresses that I thought would suit the models best.

Just over a week ago, I had the opportunity to visit the Great Northern Wedding Show where Marry Me Ink’s ultimate favourite Legend Bridal Designs had their own slot on the runway – The Alternative Catwalk.

Having such a massive love for Charlotte, Rach and the team at Legend Bridal Designs, I just had to be there and on the front row to witness the gowns in all their glittering glory. The catwalk was perfectly captured by ZT Photography (Which is why I’m using them because, as you can see, I’m busy Instagramming and catching the dresses as they pass the front row!) and she even included a little shoot in the car park afterwards.

This dress was a combination of gorgeous silk and featured a fresh flower train from another of Marry Me Ink’s favourites – Paragon Floral Design. I took a few shots and videos myself and uploaded them to the Marry Me Ink Instagram page if you want to check out the rest of the day!  Continue reading

How was everyone’s summer?!! Where did you go on holiday or did you stay and chill out with your pooches and kitties? I got engaged in Rhodes!! (More about that in a future post though!). 

Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you this fab bridal shoot from Vickerstaff Photography that took place in the awesome SEVEN BRO7HERS BREWERY on the edge of Manchester City Center with tall glittering light up “Mr & Mrs Rock” from Words To Glow.

With a partner who just happened to be co-owner of a trendy, up and coming local micro-brewery on the edge of Manchester City Centre, I knew it’s fabulous working brewery and surrounding industrial backdrop would provide just the most amazing images for this edgy, industrial inspired shoot. I just love brides who dare to be different and wanted to showcase how previously unthought-of working industrial locations could provide the most modern and contemporary setting for your special occasion or wedding day.

With an ode to popular rock culture and in celebration of popular pop up bars such as the one at Seven Bro7hers; the shoot embraced the ‘rock goddess’ theme to the max. Leather biker jackets, bold, cutting edge hair and makeup, doc marten boots, electric guitars and beautiful lighting and photography combined with the pared back, trendy décor of the working brewery and bar made for some fantastically inspirational shots.
