Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with, quite possibly the cutest wedding ever featured on the blog. Lucy and Steven got married at Living Coasts – An awesome zoo and aquarium on the Torquay coast and had Memories and Milestones Photography there to capture it all in it’s glory – Even the time they spent with the penguins!
Our whole theme of our wedding was very much rustic 50’s inspired – from vintage bridesmaids dresses, to our amazing Morris minor 1000 convertible taking us to our venue. It was so us! Our wedding favours were fake tattoos for our guests as we’re the only tattooed people in our families! The children who attended were covered by the end of the day!
We made our own save the date cards which were very vintage and original – these were so fun to make! We also made our own seating plan with vintage bunting and rope! our demi-john jar centrepieces we also made ourselves with rustic flowers for an extra vintage look!
I knew with my wedding dress would 100% have to be sleeveless as my tattoos are very much a big part of me as a person and I wanted to show that! Why hide a massive part of yourself especially on the biggest day of your life?!
Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you this gorgeous post-wedding shoot from Agnes Black Photography. Agnes absolutely LOVES doing anniversary and post wedding sessions and loved it when Rachael contacted her about getting some portraits of them in their wedding attire again.
When Rachael & Marc got in touch they already knew through a friend I have a love for post wedding portraits. What is more awesome and romantic that getting back in your wedding dress and spending an entire day reminiscing and reliving those moments in an epic location with the person you devoted your life to. These guys were undeniably besotted with one another.
Rachael told me that she was pretty creative with a love of photography and Marc a tattooist! I knew I had to shoot their session! They loved their wedding images but on the day they didn’t have a great deal of time for them and they had dreamed of having some portraits in a beautiful location. I couldn’t believe my luck and I was stoked to be shooting their portraits.
We wanted to find somewhere off the beaten track that would be beautiful in the autumn colours. We found a perfect little spot that we drove to, it was a small dense woodland surrounded by open fields. These guys were perfect with one another, and although it was freezing and very windy they forgot about that, they were so in love and wrapped up within each other it was amazing.

Today on Marry Me Ink I get to bring you a cool shoot from Lior Rotstein Photography. As well as the cute simplistic tattoos, we have some gorgeous dresses from Lee Kodo – The perfect dresses for urban bride.
‘Urban Bride’ is already a holistic concept in the wedding-world.. We gave our own interpretation to the urban bride. A bride who dares to wear a dress which is not necessarily the romantic-springy-flowery one.
The makeup by Ruth Toledo, we wanted to be subtle but present, skin-tone work is minimal, moisture-cream blended with a light makeup, light powdering, and winter toned lips (we used rich red, plum, bordeaux colours). The hair is styled in a light fashion (“I just woke up like this”). All of that comes with a photographic documentation. We gave a few ‘look’-proposals, with mixing varieties of styles – 20’s with a masculine jeans jacket that we found in our closet, metal blue stiletto heels.

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!
