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.

MALLAI suede lace up metallic courts
Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you some very beautiful shoes from Ted Baker. Their new range includes florally pastels, suede and lots of bows and sparkles! I myself treated myself to a pair of their Ichilbi statement bow court shoes in my favourite colour – Burgundy! I absolutely adore them – I can’t wait to wear them at my engagement party later this month!
From the beginning Ted has had a very clear, unswerving, focus on quality and attention to detail, so much so in fact that the first stores used to provide a laundry service for every shirt purchased – something that gained the quickly growing brand the title of ‘No Ordinary Designer Label’. Everything produced under the Ted Baker name has his personality woven into its very heart.
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.
