So after a month of quiet here at Marry Me Ink (Seriously, it’s been chaotic here), many things have happened including welcoming a rescue Dachshund into our home. Over the second May bank holiday weekend, myself and Legend Bridal took The Tattooed Wedding Collective on tour – this time to the Scarborough Tattoo Show.
We had a wonderful weekend in Scarborough along with Andy of Peacock Obscura Photography and Stuart and Jason of Kokino Hair.
Whilst there at the weekend, Rachel, Sam and Stuart all got tattooed by the beautiful Maddison Magick Tattoo.
Later on on the Saturday night, Maddison tried on one of the new Legend Bridal designs – and boy did she look hot in it!

Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you tattooed bride Emma and her husband Paul’s vow renewal from Rob Farrell Photography that took place at Arden Hotel in Stratford Upon Avon.
Me and my now husband actually met at a show bar back in 2012 at the Yumbo Center in Gran Canaria! He was dressed in a very revealing sailor suit which, looking back, was hilarious but it worked and it was 100% love at first sight! He didn’t know at first, me being with just one of my best guys friends, if we was together or not but from that moment we spent every hour together we could. Two weeks later, he came back to England for me and moved in for what was meant to be 2 weeks and never left! Happy but funny days!
My mom made my wedding bouquet as I couldn’t find one that wasn’t too big and it was amazing! I loved it and it was me, so that was fun! The quirky yet vintage style we went for totally reflected us as a couple.. We even had a bit of Disney mixed in! As Disney is just life!
To be honest, my style is just me.. My amazing crushed velvet cape I ended up wearing had me looking a bit like Belle from Beauty And The Beast, with a mix of a pagan goth! To me it was fab as it was all my favourite things!
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!

And keeping our models looking pristine all weekend, we had the fabulous Kokino Hair and award winning bridal make up artist Sonara Parker on hand all weekend creating plenty of looks to match the dresses.
Thanks for following all the Facebook live videos from the weekend and the Instagram stories – See you next year? Continue reading

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!
