A Hard Rock Hotel, Las Vegas Wedding – Tabitha & Eric


Today on Marry Me Ink, tattooed bride Tabitha and husband Eric had a retro feel to their wedding that took place at the House of Blues, Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. From Las Vegas wedding Photographer Jamie Y Phography – Tabitha and Eric went on to celebrate at their wedding after-party at The Bourban Room at The Venetian.


We met online on Hot or Not, an online dating site that you rate each others pictures (Before the days of Tinder!) – Back in the old days of MSN we decided to start chatting on there, we chatted for a couple of weeks and originally planned on just staying friends. He was an army boy who lived 9 hours away from me, but after getting along so well we decided on a mutual half way meeting place which was Barrie Ontario. We spent a weekend together and had an instant connection – He had me at Wendy’s burgers at 1am! 10 years later and one year married, dropping my life for some army boy was the best choice I could have made!


We are big into being relaxed and having fun and we love music! Our ceremony took place outdoors in a garden setting, Our choice of restaurant was The House of Blues which was a laid back music venue with a good selection of normal foods, not that fancy stuff no one can pronounce and the afterparty was at The Bourban Room, the announcer is dressed as an 80’s hairband guy, and they play old rock and roll. The style I went for myself and my bridesmaids was rockabilly/pinup, which is something I am very into and have always admired. From the laid back outdoor ceremony, to the relaxed dinner for 15 and afterparty hearing nothing but rock and roll, all those things represented us to a T.

A Music Filled, Seaside Wedding With A 50s Tattooed Bride – Sophie & Kyle


On Marry Me Ink today is Sophie, who radiates a fifties tattooed bride vibe, and her husband Kyle who looks great in his maroon suit (More maroon suits please!). From Marry Me Ink favourite Ed Godden Photography is their fabulous fifties seaside wedding at The Cliff Hotel.


We met in the local pub at a gig, where Kyle’s friend asked me and my friend to play pool. I accidentally stabbed Kyle in the face with a pool cue and then eventually he asked for my number.. Haha!


The music at our wedding is what was really personal – our ceremony music was a selection of Muse songs, who are one of our favourite bands who we connected over when we first met. Then we went on to have David Bowie, Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac playing throughout the day, including our first dance which was Bowie’s Let’s Dance. We’d always joked about having it as a first dance, so was great to make it a reality.

A Vintage Birmingham and Sinatra Filled Wedding – Beverley & JT


Today’s tattooed bride Beverley contacted Marry Me Ink directly when she got got married to Jason at The Westmead Hotel in Hopwood, Birmingham. I contacted Wendy Marie Photography to see more details from their big day, including vintage hair and make up from Le Keux Vintage Salon and couldn’t wait to share them with you!


JT and I both met through a mutual friend and our interest in motorbiking. However, little did I know I would be marrying into an existing marriage of sorts… That is JT and his best man Breeny are more commonly known as “JT and wifey” – a comical relationship made up of bickering, bacon sandwiches and “Have you rolled the fags yet?”. The standing joke on the big day itself was that I’d stolen JT from Breeny (The photos towards the end of the night show them both looking into each other’s eyes whilst I toasted my whisky on my success!)


We were really able to express ourselves through the music of the ceremony, starting with Frank Sinatra’s “Have you met Miss Jones” (my maiden name) and our exit to AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell”, through how we were able to decorate the wedding breakfast. We also shared our first dance to Frank Sinatra’s “Witchcraft”. We had lessons to dance a foxtrot! (I also had witchcraft linking in with my sleeve tattoo representing the Wiccan wheel of the year).

For me, the highlight of our day was the moment of becoming Jason’s missus…. and Jason said it was seeing me coming down the aisle – I will never forget him mouthing “wow” when he saw me.

I met Simon in Tenerife in 2008. We were both on holiday with our friends. Simon caught my eye as we were dressed up as cow girls and Simon had the obligatory check shirt to match. I went over to ask for a picture with him, we got chatting and as they say ‘the rest was history!’. (I did however get his name wrong the first few days of us meeting as after first trying to convince me he was the bass player from Noah and the Whale (don’t worry – I didn’t fall for it!) he then introduced himself by his nickname Cully, to which I in a drunken haze heard Colin!)

Our day was based about being relaxed with a vintage/music twist. Our invites and seating plans were album covers based around The Beatles Hard Days Night LP, we had a love heart canvas made of plectrums for people to sign instead of a guestbook, song sheet music as part of our table decorations and not to forget my secret love heart, bass clef tattoo. Simon plays the bass in a band. We kept it vintage with our beautiful camper and minis and I had a 50’s style dress made.
