Today on Marry Me Ink, we’re heading to Canada – The perfect inspiration for your winter wedding planning. With below-freezing temperatures outside in the snow, the bride wrapped up in a leather jacket whilst being photographed by the fab Jennifer Georgette Photography. I’m in love with crystal tiaras at the moment at this one from Lovespun Creations is gorgeous!!
I first connected with Tracey from Sugar by Tracey a few months back and we decided that we wanted to do a styled wedding that was a bit more dark and moody then the weddings we had been a part of. We decided on a date in February and from there enlisted the help of Darcie from Something Borrowed Wedding and Event Design and Travis from Calyx Floral Design to come up with the styling concept of the shoot.
We worked with some incredible vendors and the final product looked beyond amazing. The models we had were actually a married couple so it made my job much easier as they were totally in love and it felt almost like a real wedding. The bride Ida had some incredibly stunning tattoos to show off but unfortunately since we live in Canada and it is winter the day of the shoot ended up being a little colder than anticipated so she had to wear her jacket a bit more. But they were such troopers and even did some outside in -20 weather.

Today I get to share with you this gorgeous tattooed Tim Burton inspiration wedding shoot from a fantastic team including Erin of Way Out Wedding, The Couture Company, Nicki Feltham Photography and many more.
The inspiration for the shoot was simply Tim Burton. The team members are all huge fans of the quirky gothic styling he brings to his films, and so our Pinterest planning board was fantastic!! We focused on his women characters to bring it into the bridal world, and we had a two-part story: one was how his blonde and innocent heroines (e.g. Johanna in Sweeney Todd) would dress for a wedding, and the other was how his anti-heroines (Victoria from The Corpse Bride, or Mrs Lovett from Sweeney Todd again) would style themselves.
The styling was bold and arresting – think skull jewellery, gothic dresses, in-your-face make-up, a dark denim coloured naked cake covered in vintage lace, gothic millinery, amazing flower crowns, a quirky venue, and taxidermy – and yet all the elements were perfect for an alternative wedding and not at all alienating for real life.
When Erin asked me if I’d like to do the photography for her Tim Burton styled bridal shoot, I jumped at the chance. Between us, we gathered together quite a strong troop of amazing suppliers and some absolutely stunning models, too, and on the day we both came up with some fabulous ideas for creative shots – we worked so well as a team.
