Legend Bridal Designs

As we run up to the weekend, make sure you’re on the Marry Me Ink Instagram today to win a pair of weekend tickets for The Tattoo Tea Party where you’ll also get to meet all the awesome people who are part of The Tattooed Wedding Collective! For now, here’s a sneak peek of who will be joining us over the weekend.. We do have plenty more suppliers joining us over the weekend, but here are just a few who will be there!

Paragon Floral Design

At Paragon, we understand that our customers are not all the same. That’s why we offer a free, no-obligation consultation to enable you to input your creative ideas and ensure you get exactly what you are looking for. Whatever your requirement, we love a creative challenge! We can cater to the most diverse of requirements and relish the opportunity to think outside the box. We work closely with our customers to create something totally unique.

We are looking forward to meeting potential clients who are interested in flowers. Whether it’s for their home, work space, or their wedding/event. We are excited to show off a few of our creative designs, and to be inspired by our surroundings over the weekend.

ZT Photography


A fusion of creative, alternative, fun and documentary wedding photography, we are Zo + Liam. All round creative souls living by the seaside in Lancashire.

Our style is documentary with a side order of cinematic portraits. We love to capture emotion, bursts of movement, passion and energy alongside great narratives.

Debbie Gillespie Cake Design

I’m the Debbie behind Debbie Gillespie Cake Design.  I am an award-winning wedding cake designer, self-confessed Star Wars geek, lover of sushi and The Big Bang Theory.  I spend my days in my cosy Huddersfield workshop, listening to Radio 2 and creating edible works of art.  I love pretty flora and fauna, bold colours but mostly anything fun and quirky.  If you want a wedding cake that is totally bespoke, unique to you and a little out-of-the-ordinary, then I am definitely your woman.  No cake is too small/big/crazy!

Fruit Bat Textiles

Fruitbat Textiles is a Somerset based business that specialises in weaving and millinery. Last year the business released its first bridal collection, taking inspiration from Irregular Choice shoes. The Tattoo Tea Party will be the host for the launch of the second bridal collection and we can’t wait to see what you all think! This is the largest display the business would have done to date and we’re really looking forward to meeting some incredible, and talented people.  Continue reading

Our fairs offer an alternative to the products you’ve seen at every other wedding you’ve been to and showcases the finest vintage and alternative wedding suppliers from the South East & beyond!
