The West Highland Way and The Wedding Industry Experts 2014 Awards

Rachael Urquhart, The Couture Co, Custard Factory March 2014 - Jay Emme PhotographyJay Emme Photography

For those who don’t know, tomorrow I’m driving up to Scotland tomorrow to take part the challenging West Highland Way (whilst camping in between).. Yes I know, I’m slightly crazy! For those who also didn’t know, as well as running Marry Me Ink, I have a full time job at the Central Manchester Foundation Trust Hospitals (CMFT) in their inpatient pharmacy. I’m taking part in the West Highland Way to raise money specifically for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, one of the four hospitals at CMFT. I have a Just Giving page and would be truly grateful if so much as donated £1 to a local and worthy cause, to raise money for kids that, very unfortunately, have to stay indoors when we have glorious sunshine and when we’re at home with our loved ones. The support that Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital provides helps families to stay together and support one another during what can be a very difficult time for them. The Charity supports projects which aim to make life a little easier for our young patients and their families, particularly when they have long or frequent stays in hospital. 

With your help, we can ensure that Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital is not only the largest children’s hospital in the country – but one of the best.

If you haven’t seen Jay, Sarah or myself sneak peeking last Tuesday’s shoot on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter – Where the heck have you been?

What started out as a free day to be able to travel down to Birmingham for Jay and myself to play around and hang out – turned out to be one of the most laid back and fun shoots I’ve done yet.

With Sarah’s Doo Wop Dos‘ hair & make-up magic, The Couture Company‘s stunning gowns and hairpieces, Strange Case Collective‘s huge colourful paper flowers and the fab surroundings of The Custard Factory – last Tuesday we ended departing super excited for another shoot already!

So I met with Sarah off the train and we headed straight up to The Custard Factory where Jo showed me a glimpse of what dresses I’d get to prance around in  – I was so excited! Sarah got her mini salon set up in one of the studios including rollers heating and shadow palette out whilst Jay went to the impromptu spring garden and arranged the fabulous paper flowers from Strange Case Collective.

Both dresses were a dream to wear!

This first dress from The Couture Company was my favourite of the two I wore on the day. Just everything about it was perfect – the laser cut flowers, the off the shoulder straps, the multicoloured buttons, the skirt pleats THAT waterfall hemline..

On Sunday, we went to see the hilarious Daniel Sloss and Kai Humphries at The Lowry. We’ve seen them before and bought the tickets last minute. They’re definitely worth going seeing if you like to laugh. A LOT.
