What I’ve Been Up To – The Laura Ashley Festive Craft Event


I love meeting new people, especially local bloggers. Last Sunday I had the chance to do just that, along with plenty of crafting with Laura Ashley and Ministry Of Craft at Rosylee Tearooms in one of my favourite parts of Manchester.


First we got to sew our own bunting gift bag with some lovely Laura Ashley fabric.


Then after getting over the fact that I haven’t used a sewing machine in over 15 years (Even then it wasn’t that successful!) I managed to create my version of the bunting gift bag..

A Summer Carnival DIY Wedding – Chris & Megan

2013-01-02_0024Happy 2013! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and an even better New Year!

Today is the start of many exciting posts and beautifully tattooed brides & grooms coming your way! And to start it off, here is the wonderful Chris & Megan who met each other working in the same hospital.

2013-01-02_0048“We were both working there, and it was forbidden to date co-workers, so we had a secret romance. Most of our co-workers could tell that we were interested in each other, but no one ever knew definitively if we were dating or not while we both worked there.”

A ColourFUN, Dinotastic Wedding: Ren & Tim

How beautiful do Ren & Tim look on their wedding day? Photographed by the amazing Tino&Pip Photography – Ren & Tim’s wedding was VERY colourful – full of paper cranes and garden games at an old watermill. Just what Marry Me Ink loves!!

“Throughout my wedding journey, I was judged by the majority of suppliers and there was always a mention of how I was going to cover up my back tattoo or what I could do to make it less obvious. My mother has never liked my tattoos and chose to not mention it after it was clear that I would be showing all. So I booked in with my tattooist to try and get as much coloured in before the big day and although I still have 12 hours left it looked amazing.

No one in my family apart from my sister and parents even knew I had tattoos and no one apart from Tim had seen it coloured in so it was a nice surprise to everyone. Even my mega conservative family complimented it Continue reading

A Southern California Wedding: Ann & Jeff

How gorgeous is Ann? The lovely Glass Jar Photography sent me this through – how beautiful does the light look? The yellows and pale pastels colours are to die for! The vintage hints to this wedding are cute too. Also, the couple held there wedding at a venue that had orchards everywhere – perfect for an outside summer’s wedding!

“We met Ann to document her getting all dolled up at a place in San Luis Obispo called The Sanitarium. It was amazing, everything was decorated with local artist work, and even had a jam area in the front foyer of the house (where I threw down some sweet piano jams before we left). Very cool.

“Next, We were off to the actual wedding site in  Nipomo, California at the gorgeous Dana-Powers House. A Super Awesome venue with a barn in the back, circled by orange orchards, vineyards and the mountains where they had their entire wedding….it was perfect. I think it would probably win the award for the most unique venue that we’ve been to so far, not to mention that the weather there was phenomenal. 75 degrees and no humidity! It was paradise for us compared to the 105 degree super humid weather here in Alabama. It was a nice break for us.”

Ann’s strapless dress lets her gorgeous back tattoo be on show – especially as it comes over her shoulder.
