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.
Good morning! I’m SO excited to be sharing this amazing tattooed shoot with you that I helped create in January with Tux and Tales Photography, LND Events and Edith & Winston Bridalwear. Crewe’s Lyceum Theatre helped create the theatrical backdrop we were going for to show off out stunning models – Georgina of Fuller Figure Fuller Bust and Nancy of Sugar, Darling?
Headpiece – Pearls & Swine
On the day we had the fabulous beauty duo of Kerry Baker: Make-up Artist and Wedlocks Bridal Hair Specialist who did a wonderful job of keeping our lipstick and hair curls on point.

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.

Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you this punk-pretty Alice styled shoot from Joanne Withers Photography and EK Bridal.
We had the use of two venues in Leicester. Belgrave Hall which was built in the early 18th century and the grounds give a secret garden feel to the shoot. Plus Abbey Pumping station, opened in 1891 and this Victorian pumping station is now a museum, but the great news is that this venue has just been given their wedding license. We are the first companies to gain permission to shoot at this venue and as you can image we were very excited to be given the go ahead, as we love to see all the unusual and alternative venues that weddings are now taking place in and this one really does have the wow factor for the alternative, Marry Me Ink bride.

“All of my dresses are designed, pattern cut and made by myself in my home studio. The dresses I made for this shoot were produced solely for the style of the venues and the theme we were working towards. I love anything that is quirky and slightly unusual, so to design for a steampunk Alice theme was just my thing. The shoot was amazing to be a part of and everyone involved were so enthusiastic and absolutely love what they do you can really see this I feel in the
