Today on Marry Me Ink, we have a bit of tattooed bride style from Los Angeles wedding photographer Sarah Mack who recently went to the Desert Trip musical festival which is where the inspiration for the bohemian bridal shoot came from.
I was reminded of the magical quality the desert possesses to attract unique and artistic personalities. It is filled with a simplistic vibrancy that leaves you reflecting on its beauty.
With this shoot I wanted to embody the richness of creativity and beauty the desert possess. One of my good friends, Carly, of Sage and Swan Photography has recently relocated to Joshua Tree and I knew would be the perfect muse for this shoot.
Armed with a breathtaking bohemian wedding gown by BHLDN, Anthropologies bridal line, we wondered out into the Indian Cove Campground, located in Joshua Tree National Park.

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!

I have always love the sweet, ethereal style of E&W Couture (Which until recently I didn’t realise stood for “Ears & Whiskers Couture” – Hence the rabbit ears on their logo!), so when Carly Turner Photography sent me this beach hut shoot, I just had to say yes to featuring it! Carly sent me little email with all the details about the shoot..
I’m a wedding photographer and love shooting weddings, but I also love all the girly bits – especially the dresses! I photographed a wedding in the Spring and my bride had this really simple, unique two piece outfit (long skirt and seperate strapless crop top). The bride had told me that it had been made by E&W Couture and that I should check out the website as they had some really gorgeous stuff.
I got in contact with E&W Couture and ended up arranging to use their dresses on some styled bridal work. I chose dresses that I thought would suit the models best.

Just over a week ago, I had the opportunity to visit the Great Northern Wedding Show where Marry Me Ink’s ultimate favourite Legend Bridal Designs had their own slot on the runway – The Alternative Catwalk.
Having such a massive love for Charlotte, Rach and the team at Legend Bridal Designs, I just had to be there and on the front row to witness the gowns in all their glittering glory. The catwalk was perfectly captured by ZT Photography (Which is why I’m using them because, as you can see, I’m busy Instagramming and catching the dresses as they pass the front row!) and she even included a little shoot in the car park afterwards.
This dress was a combination of gorgeous silk and featured a fresh flower train from another of Marry Me Ink’s favourites – Paragon Floral Design. I took a few shots and videos myself and uploaded them to the Marry Me Ink Instagram page if you want to check out the rest of the day! Continue reading
