So last weekend marked the 6th Tattoo Tea Party at Manchester’s Event City where Legend Bridal and I launched The Tattooed Wedding Collective and had with us some amazing suppliers who we loved getting to now over the course of the weekend after only ever speaking online.
After stamping 100 bags and filling them with goodies each morning, it was great to meet some awesome people over the weekend including some of you that are planning your own tattooed wedding! The epic ZT Photography joined us over the weekend and took the models and myself for a mini shoot by the dodgems on the last day – We had so much fun!

As well as Debbie’s show stopping cakes, we also had Paragon Floral Design with us over the weekend and their eye catching area – complete with flying crows. They certainly attracted the majority of the visitors to our corner.

We also had Unity Ceremonies with us who, on their stand, had a beautiful example of one the weddings Liz had been a part of.
Unity Civil Celebrancy
We also had the delight of having Art for Soles customised shoes with us too – Complete with Harry Potter and Walking Dead shoes and bags!

There were also beautiful tweed and glittery bows and perfect accessories for your pretty little head from Fruit Bat Textiles too – So much so, Zoe wore one all weekend!

This is it – The final post of 2016. It’s been exciting yet quieter than normal on my part. It’s been exciting due to myself and Rob getting engaged this summer (Seriously how do you guys do it – We can’t find a wedding venue we want!) and that 2017 has some MASSIVE things in store for Marry Me Ink.. I get to bring the Tattooed Wedding Collective to the Tattoo Tea Party with Legend Bridal Designs where we’re bringing some our handpicked favourite suppliers!
Marry Me Ink has had the chance to feature so many awesome weddings this year and connect with some awesome photographers from the UK and around the rest of the world – Thank you to you and your couples for letting me share your special day on the blog! Below are my favourite 12 weddings of 2016 (I already have a collection that I’m saving ready for the start of 2017 – You’ll just have to wait until next week).

I love meeting new people, especially local bloggers. Last Sunday I had the chance to do just that, along with plenty of crafting with Laura Ashley and Ministry Of Craft at Rosylee Tearooms in one of my favourite parts of Manchester.
First we got to sew our own bunting gift bag with some lovely Laura Ashley fabric.
Then after getting over the fact that I haven’t used a sewing machine in over 15 years (Even then it wasn’t that successful!) I managed to create my version of the bunting gift bag..
