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.

As well as LND Events, we had a great team including Roses and China, Mani’s Creative Services, Paragon Floral Design and Sally Jane Cake Design to help create a glittering venue.

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

Oh how I’ve been planning to share this shoot from Heline Bekker Photography with you for a while! The shoot features tattooed bride bombshell regular Gwenda Jeffs and she’s totally killing it at the coastal mermaid bride!
We love to explore and visit locations with a different look and feel. We’d been planning a beach shoot for a while but typically, we had to wait for the weather to be kind! Our main goal was just to go and explore the location without any plan set in stone, to be free to shoot it how we wanted and just to have fun.
For me it was a day I’ll never forget. I hadn’t visited Kingsgate Bay before, so when I saw it I freaked out a bit like a kid in a candy store! To me the place has a certain feel to it, a mystery – and I love that!
