A Rock & Roll Bridal Shoot Up North – The Bridal Emporium

Tim Dunk Photography

Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you this epic bridal shoot complete with Yorkshire elements along with the rock and roll edge. Styled by The Bridal Emporium – A Leeds based bridal shop celebrating all the wonderful British designers that bring you all your glamorous vintage and boho bridal style gowns and Yorkshire Menswear providing the slick suits for the groom.

Owner of The Bridal Emporium in Leeds, Claire Amelia, is thrilled to show off the latest pictures from the rock’n’roll wedding photo-shoot that was set at New Craven Hall in April, 2017. Embracing a very Northern theme, the set was filled with elements of a rustic-nature feel, along with a typical feature of the Yorkshire greetings ‘Ey Up’. 

The suppliers brought out the best of British with a number of Northern based participants. Including Tim Dunk, the wonderful photographer who oozes an immense amount of coolness within each frame, making the venue, New Craven Hall in Leeds, shine with an edgy retro feel. The chosen venue is a new industrial space, providing a trendy and blank area, perfect for pimping out to fit to any desired theme! An added touch of punk really aims to appeal to the tattoo market, along with the two models that were specifically chosen to compliment the Yorkshire rock look of the whole photo-shoot.

The models were fashioned with a simple, boho inspired style and the dresses were supplied by the amazing wedding dress designer, Eliza Jane Howell. The gowns fitted perfectly with the boho/vintage look, with sequined details that contrasted and added a softer detail to the whole setting. The accessories were provided by ourselves at The Bridal Emporium, gorgeous floral head wear and white punk heels complimented the female models, Kellie, body art. Byron, the male model, was styled with a more austere look to emphasise on the wedding gowns. The very talented make-up artist, Amanda, from Lipstick and Curls opted for deep purple-red lips which paired well with natural toned eyes.

A Cute Zoo And Aquarium Wedding On The Torquay Coast – Lucy & Steven

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?!

The Tattooed Wedding Collective At Scarborough Tattoo Show

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!

A Blue Haired Bride With Disney Tattoos For A Cool & Quirky Wedding – Emma & Paul

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!
