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).

It’s Christmas week! To celebrate the run up to the holidays I thought I’d start with a beautiful summer wedding from Velvet Storm Photography from earlier this year. Alpha and Cat were married at Deans Place Hotel in East Sussex and had a fun and family filled day of celebrations.
We met through mutual friends. It was funny because we both had the same friends for years but had never crossed each other’s paths, even though we both worked within the same industry (Alpha as a DJ and Catherine as a club promoter). Anyways about five years ago Alpha dated one of Friends. Thankfully it didn’t work out but it meant that we got to know each other a little during that time. About a year later we bumped into each other outside a nightclub, had a drunken conversation about deleting each other from Facebook which Cath is still mortified about. Alpha then re-added Cath later that night when she went home and as they say the rest is history.
Well we had an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding as were a bit theatrical ourselves. We wanted big bright colours, topsy-turvy decorations, and entertainment that continued throughout the day. Were not traditional people however we have traditional beliefs of marriage. The ceremony was very elegant (until dropped the rings and Alpha cursed lol) with a live saxophone list, but that’s where the tradition stopped. With both of us working in the entertainment industry we really wanted to put on a show that all of our guests would never forget. From a flash mob of Irish dancers, to singing waiters, to fire poi, we kept everybody on their toes all night. We wanted to look back at our wedding and say it was the biggest and best party we had ever been to and we definitely succeeded in achieving that.

Happy November! As much as I love Christmas, I still want all the Pumpkin Spice everything!
Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you Alice and Chris’ strawberry and 80s New Wave and Rock themed wedding from Bri Johnson Photography at Bridgewater Manor.
We both met on a dating site actually, not very romantic at all, but we did talk over the phone for a week or two and I can say it was definitely love at first sight. I’ve barely spent a day away from him since we’ve met.
Our strawberry theme was definitely all for me, but our music selection for the DJ was all 80s new wave and rock and everyone loved it as well! I actually planned the whole wedding myself, down to every detail. Picking out the save the dates and invitation was the best – I loved seeing our names and wedding date in print on strawberry invitations!
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.
