Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you a magical venue that is new to the alternative wedding scene – perfect for the tattooed bride and groom. The Fishpond is set in Matlock Bath near the Peak District. The awesome Becky Ryan Photography teamed up with Victoria of The Fishpond Freehouse and tattooed beauty Tiffany and her partner Lee to show just how much it’s a perfect venue for your upcoming alternative wedding.

The Fishpond in Matlock Bath, Derbyshire is the perfect little venue for those seeking a quirky wedding venue. Set in the popular tourist town of Matlock Bath, it has everything the discerning alternative bride needs: Candy, motorbikes, ice cream, arcades, and fish & chips. The only thing missing here is the sea – Matlock Bath truly is a unique landlocked seaside town.

The Fishpond itself also has everything an alternative bride could possibly need. From the moment you enter this cosy pub you are welcomed by the friendly team, who ensure the venue is always offering something for everyone. It’s ideally set up for weddings too with its 200 capacity ballroom with original vaulted ceiling and self contained bar. We also have a beautiful Restaurant with cosy and relaxed decor – the ideal location for the ceremony and intimate dining, a stunning multi tiered garden to the rear with a hot spring waterfall and an outside bar.

Love Letters – Home Is Where The Heart Is


Today I get to share the cute engagement shoot of Nicola and Andy from the fabulous Becky Ryan Photography which took place in their vintage knick knack filled  home.


The power of Twitter had led us to the lovely Becky Ryan, who has just branched out into the world of photography and was looking to build up her portfolio. We are also on a budget so I thought we could help each other out! After a few emails, FaceBook messages and tweets we finally settled on a day which was mutually convenient.

When Becky arrived we all had a brew and exchanged pleasantries. I could tell straight away that she would be great to work with.


As our house was going to feature heavily in the shots, we gave her the grand tour. As I went off to get changed, Becky went around the house again by herself, getting a feel for the light etc. She took a few snaps of our knick-knackery just to get started then it was time for “lights, camera, action!”
