Today I get to introduce you to the awesome Love Sick London – A Camden based clothing company that draws inspiration from our diverse backgrounds and surroundings in London. Verity Quirk of Rabbit & Pork Photography shared this awesome shoot to showcase Love Sick London‘s awesome clothing and also to show off awesome tattooed couple Kate Van Doren and Mike Williams.
Love Sick London was born out of a love for Tattoos, tattoo design and big illustrations. From basement tattoo parlours to hipster hangouts, our aim is to bring high quality, fair trade and organic materials with big statement prints to the market. Established in 2013, we have gone from strength to strength, working with very talented illustrators and artists all over the UK we have gone from follower to follower on social media, with Instagram being our biggest selling tool to date.
Our products have been brought worldwide, from Hong Kong to Columbia and our biggest customers seem to be our brothers and sisters up in bonny Scotland. As the company grows we hope to expand by having our products stocked in boutiques and high street chains. Love Sick London was not born from heartbreak but from a Sick Love of London.
Today I get to share with you the gorgeous tattooed bride-to-be Emma and her fiancé Chris’ engagement shoot (with the most amazing golden hour light!) from West Yorkshire wedding photographer Maryanne Scott. The story of how Emma and Chris met is lovely!
We initially met on a dating website in mid 2011. After months of exchanging texts messages and lengthy phone calls we finally decided to meet in person in December 2011. Chris lived on the Lincolnshire coast and I lived in West Yorkshire but he decided he had a good feeling about us meeting so he drove up to meet me.
Our first “face to face” date was coffee and cake at a Starbucks.. Needless to say we hit it off, he well and truly swept me off my feet and we spent the three days together!!! We had a long distance distance relationship from then until he moved up to Yorkshire in October 2012.
Today on Marry Me Ink – I thought I’d show you this fun love session from Mya Photography. Morgan and Felix look super cute together and I love that they had a pillow fight – What a fun love session!
I managed to organize a pillow fight with Morgan & Felix and it was amazing. In the same time, I got to photograph an intimate moment and a fun moment between them both.
Morgan and Felix were a little bit shy at the beginning, but the pillow fight gave everybody the chance to relax.
Today I get to share with you the most beautiful story of Aisling and Jeremiah’s engagement, alongside the stunning photography of Natalie J Weddings
We met in Vancouver, Canada. I had been living there for nearly a year and Jeremiah there for 3 years.
We met in a bar that I worked in Gastown called the The Metropole Pub “The Met”. Jeremiah would come in after work for a drink or he would come down on his days off with a group of mates for $2 Tuesdays. He and his mates drank a lot of $2 beers, they always tipped the best and the politest customers.
One night someone had had too many $2 beers and a fight had broken out (a regular occurrence at The Met), somehow this time Jeremiah and his mates had got dragged into it and onto the street, Jeremiah’s jacket got left behind and through the chaos I managed to find him and give it back. That was it that was “the moment”.
I was intrigued by Jeremiah, he was a big presence, always well dressed with tattoo’s and slick back hair, he was quiet and polite. We talked on Facebook and arranged to go to the movies.. The closer the date got, the more nervous I became.
A couple of nights before our date, I was out with some friends for a birthday and after a few too many drinks and new found courage I called Jeremiah and told him we had to meet right now and he obliged. Being the true gentleman he is , he looked after me gave me water and we talked all night, we were barely apart from that moment on.
After a few months of being together and doing everything together, my Canadian visa was expiring and I had to go back to England. For us to be together, Jeremiah had to return home to Australia to work and to save. This was a very difficult time for us being worlds apart and both leaving behind friends and the city we loved so much, but after a few months I was granted my Australian Visa and Jeremiah had paid for my flights. I shortly after arrived in Australia where Jeremiah has become the Grit to my Grace and we have began a wonderful new life together with our trusty sidekick and puppy dog Mr Bugsy.
After two years of living in Australia, we took a trip back to the U.K to introduce Jeremiah to my family (and little did in know, for Jeremiah to ask my dad for his blessing). We spent two weeks in the UK before doing a mini Euro Trip starting in Spain to see my bothers. From La Manga we drove the coast to Barcelona and then we flew to Nice. On the top of Montee Du Chateau over looking the most beautiful view of nice, Jeremiah told me he loved me as I was devouring the juiciest peach of my life I nodded with a approval. And then out of the blue he got down on one knee.. Through tears and beaming smile, (and a mouth full of peach) I said yes.
