Today on Marry Me Ink, I thought I’d start the week off with this gorgeous couple from Daz Mack Photography. Alex and Mick had the engagement shoot whist taking their dogs out for a walk – It’s super cute! They both took the time to tell me about their time together and plans for their upcoming wedding.
We met in my then local pub, watching the boxing. I spied Mick across a snooker table, saw his joker smile (back before he grew in the beard) and knew I had to try and seduce him. Oh so slick, I chatted him up and bragged about my upcoming business and gave him a card. Later on he came around to find me and give me the card back – “I’m sure you’re a nice lass but some other blokes have just been showing me the exact same calling card. Maybe some other time.” (I’d been drunkenly throwing them around at the bar in an attempt to look impressive and boorish). I was devastated, I ran out after him but he had already gone.
Three days later I got a cheeky text message, letting me know he’s played a dog’s trick and already had put my number in his phone before he returned the card. “Have you been thinking about me?”. It’s been 5 years of pranking, teasing and generally trying to get the upper-hand ever since.
One day, we’d said we would go into town for late night Christmas shopping but I had a nightmare of a day at work and wasn’t feeling the holiday vibe. I got home and he was dressed to the nines and ready to head out – despite my best efforts to cause a row and keep us at home to do it another night – so off we went.
He walked me up and down the high street under the lights, we got festive drinks to go and he soon warmed me around. “There’s a reason I wanted so badly to come into town tonight, ” he said, dropping on bended knee under the town clock. “Are you kidding me–?” I stammered, feeling like a right shrew.
Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you this gorgeous themed engagement shoot from Luna Photographie. They had the cutest Great Gatsby themed shoot in the woods and on the beach – I can’t wait for you to hear their story!
Andy and Leah met their sophomore year of college in an English class. They just happened to sit next to each other, and their professor warned the class that they may be sitting next to a future spouse. Little did they know, they were!
Andy asked Leah out every semester, but she said no until their senior year. He took Leah to an Italian restaurant and ice skating. It was then Leah realised Andy was the man of her dreams.
The first engagement shoot of 2017 is filled with my favourite things – Tea and cake (and also gorgeous tattoos!) I’ll let Lisa tell you all about Adam’s perfect proposal and afterwards they had their engagement shoot in Llangollen – a town full of vintage wares and the idyllic “Vintage Rose Tea Room” with Abigail Joan Photographer.
Adam and I decided to book a weekend away together for our one year anniversary in October of 2015. We wanted something different so headed off to spend a few days glamping in a beautiful yurt in Cumbria.
On the first night, we settled into our new surroundings and lit a campfire. Toasting marshmallows and playing board games, it was a refreshing change from our usual technology-filled evenings. Our yurt was located by the lake and was so peaceful.
Later that night, we got comfy in our hideaway and snuggled up under blankets. It was then that Adam asked me to marry him. Of course, I said yes! He presented me with a beautiful vintage art deco engagement ring and I fell in love with him just a little more after that! (I jest of course, but it was a stunner)
Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you Kristy and Spiryt’s engagement shoot from Alexis Schwallier Photography. Taken in these gorgeous Tim Burton/Edward Scissorhands inspired gardens, they make such a gorgeous couple.. (I also get to feature their wedding soon)
Spiryt & I met by him stalking me at work at the mall (I truly thought “Wow, this guy is kind of awesome for thinking that I am this cool to be that into me” and it was kind of endearing). He worked upstairs for Verizon at the time, & I was a retail manager at Bath & Body Works. One of my friends, Asia, that worked with Spiryt had mentioned that he was wanting to ask me out.
She showed me a picture of him on her phone (this is back in 2006 when smartphones were super pixelated). All I saw were these amazing dreadlocks, and I was intrigued by his Lenny Kravitz-like looks.. I was geeking out that this really attractive guy wanted to meet me.
Asia kept putting in the good word for Spiryt, and she set us up meeting for the 1st time. She said, “He is coming down after work today at 4:30 to meet you”. That day, I planned to leave work early but as soon as I was walking out of my store, there Spiryt was in all his glory. I smiled so big – he was definitely more than what I expected. Such a gentleman.
