It’s finally getting sunny here in Manchester (But it’s still freezing!), so I had to share this gorgeous, sunny desert shoot of Caitlin and Aaron from Emily Grace Photography.
Caitlin and Aaron never got the images back from their actual wedding that their friend photographed, so this shoot was able to create the memories that they never received. This just goes to show that hiring a professional to photograph your wedding is key. I’m so glad that they managed to create more memories at Assateague Island in Maryland and have them photographed by Emily as part of the House of Flynn shoot session in Ocean City.
They are a beautiful, dread head couple who own the coffee shop, A Latte Enjoy, on 2nd Street in Ocean City – I recently had an amazing opportunity to work on styled wedding shoot with a few of my fellow House of Flynn Tribe members in Assateague Island, MD. House of Flynn is fantastic company that focuses on photography related apparel and camera bags. Their bags are absolutely fantastic and you’ll definitely catch me carrying mine around at weddings!
I loved getting to know Caitlin and Aaron during their intimate portrait session. It broke my heart to hear they never actually received their wedding photos. All the more reason to set up this session! It was so wonderful strolling around the beach with them and the other HOF Tribe members. Aaron had me cracking up with the story of how they met, but since it’s not PG you’ll just have to ask them about it. Continue reading

Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you a beautiful bohemian style tipi wedding from London wedding photographer Babb Photo. Chloe and Stephen met in their local village pub over tequila whilst listening to Oasis.
I live and work in China so Stephen actually proposed to me over Skype! We have been together for 11 and a half years and were engaged for 18 months of that.
Stephen is a keen wakeboarder and so knew the location of our wedding well. He went to the lake one day and spotted there was a wedding happening at Chittering Farm. He called me to come and have a look, so I did, and we both fell in love with the place. It was perfect for the informal, festival style wedding that we wanted to achieve.
Our ceremony was incredibly special as it was lead by my best friend Kat, who was also chief bridesmaid. We were officially married the day before in the registry office. We had 3 readings and 4 blessings. I chose the readings based on the fact that I didn’t want anything too soppy, sexist or unrelatable! The readings were a snippet form a quote by Einstein on relativity and love. A poem by Roy Croft, called I Love you, and another poem by Rainer Maria Rilke. Our vows were the traditional style vows as we didn’t want to make the ceremony too out there!
One of my very good friends, Rosie Bailey, has always had a keen eye for anything to do with flowers and gardening. She recently set up her own business called Wild Florals. After seeing posts of her flower arranging, I knew she would be the best person for the job. I wanted to create a very natural feel, that echoed the environment and she did that beautifully.
The photography was simply amazing. The main reason I chose Babb Photo was based upon the fact that on the website, Laura mentioned that she loves tattoos, glitter and Dr Martens, that sold it to me! I also spent time looking through her gallery and loved the journalistic style photos she was able to create. She made us both feel so comfortable, especially as we are not a slushy couple and were worried about the photos of just us. Laura made us feel at ease and made us laugh. We couldn’t be happier with our choice!

Today on Marry Me Ink, tattooed bride Lisa married Christoph at a gorgeous historic church in Salzburg, Austria and went on to celebrate at Vitalhotel Gosau. They celebrated my friends and family and had the wonderful Photo-Melanie there to capture their special day.
Christoph and I first met in a bar – I’d never thought I’ll meet a man I’ll marry once. It was a really amusing night with lots of drinks and dancing. When he finally came to talk to me I was a little bit nervous – I liked how he looked like on this evening.
As for DIY elements – I did everything by myself. Nobody was allowed to help me because I wanted everything perfect.
The highlight of the day was our baby girl who was a surprise for my husband in the church – she came in with an old Wagon. She held the box with the rings in it in her tiny hands, she was so cute.
The part that represented us a couple was the big party all day long. If we had any advice for other couples getting married – JUST ROCK IT!
Tattoos, beard and horses – This is what Cillia Ciabrini of Pour Fair Court shared with me and I’m so glad I get to feature it on Marry Me Ink. This inspirational wedding shoot was born from the desire to bring together a intimate wedding in a wild and bohemian atmosphere – a little rock and folk. This shoot is full of geometric colour and gorgeous landscapes.. My favourite! I had the chance to speak to Cillia about her styling ideas for the shoot.
It all started with the encounter with Lena and Aden – a beautiful couple with atypical traits and tattooed bodies but particularly funny and sweet! I have to admit, the beauty of Lena hit me – she releases an incredible softness and her beauty is timeless. She’s one of these warm beauties that seems cold from the outside, she’s mysterious and fascinating and it is exactly this atmosphere that I wanted to reflect, a winter wedding with a blue light but a warm couple. Sublimated by the Make Up of Alexia Parisi, Lena is gorgeous in her tailored silk dress made by the talented Kaa Couture.
Aden wears a suit by Vaubecour Lyon. (Even though he is more used to wearing jeans and sneakers!) All their tattoos were done at Lena’s shop in Lyon, Ink’a Tattoo. This is where they met and where I have also seen them for the first time.
