Legend Bridal Designs – Bespoke Bridalwear

sidhe_ztphotography_008_WEBZT Photography

Legend Bridal Designs is run by three awesome ladies who I’ve had the greatest time getting to know over the past few years of running Marry Me Ink. They even created a gorgeous gown for the Blog Awards last year and I got the chance to model another of their designs in October here.


We are Legend Bridal Designs – Charlotte, Rachel and Tracy. We are bespoke dressmakers designing and creating from our little studio in Blackburn. We have been described as eccentric and maybe that’s true. We definitely don’t fall into what you would typically expect of bridal shop owners; tattoos, piercings and variable hair colours abound. But that’s exactly why we do what we do… Not everyone has the same vision for their wedding and we GET it.


We are heavily influenced by myth and folklore. Fairytales are a magnificent source of inspiration and several of our collections have been based on particular tales; The Asrai, The Huldra and The Sidhe for instance. (The Sidhe, is the set we share with you today from a collaboration with ZT Photography)


Our styles and influences are constantly evolving through our own personal interests; For me (Charlotte) I’m naturally drawn to darker aesthetics where Rachel is much more colourful in her design. I guess this means we never fall into any one style. We find inspiration everywhere; the books we read, films we watch, the people we come into contact with and our friends all shape what we create and each of us have different tastes and strengths that means we really know where our brides are coming from.

A Sunny, Autumnal Black Bridal Dress Shoot – Rivington


About a week ago, I  got the chance to meet up with some awesome ladies and play dress-up at the beautiful and scenic Rivington which is part of the West Pennine Moors (and only a short drive away for us all!). 



Earlier this year, Charlotte, Rachel and Tracy of Legend Bridal Designs Ltd altered a dress that was just taking up space in my wardrobe and created the beautiful cream and black Toile de Jouy dress for me to wear for the UK Blog Awards 2015. It fitted me perfectly and the quality of the dress is magnificent. 


I wanted to get some pictures of it for them both at Legend Bridal Designs Ltd to share and what better way to do it then spend an afternoon in the great outdoors with Donna of ClickClick Bang Photography and Amy of Erin Olivia’s!

A Pin Up, Button Filled Wedding In Heckmondwike – Emma & Chris


You may recognise tattooed bride and groom Emma and Chris from their golden engagement shoot in Yorkshire that I featured in January. Today they’re back with their gorgeous Ponderosa Lakeside Restaurant wedding from Maryanne Scott Photography.


Having all our friends and family together to be part of our day was the highlight of our wedding day. We never wanted a stuffy formal wedding, that’s just not us. We had so much fun and spent the whole day just smiling and laughing! 


I think the fact that we had such a relaxed day was the biggest reflection on us as a couple. There were also little hints of tattoo art, such as on the table plan, wedding cake and back of my dress.
