Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you this epic bridal shoot complete with Yorkshire elements along with the rock and roll edge. Styled by The Bridal Emporium – A Leeds based bridal shop celebrating all the wonderful British designers that bring you all your glamorous vintage and boho bridal style gowns and Yorkshire Menswear providing the slick suits for the groom.
Owner of The Bridal Emporium in Leeds, Claire Amelia, is thrilled to show off the latest pictures from the rock’n’roll wedding photo-shoot that was set at New Craven Hall in April, 2017. Embracing a very Northern theme, the set was filled with elements of a rustic-nature feel, along with a typical feature of the Yorkshire greetings ‘Ey Up’.
The suppliers brought out the best of British with a number of Northern based participants. Including Tim Dunk, the wonderful photographer who oozes an immense amount of coolness within each frame, making the venue, New Craven Hall in Leeds, shine with an edgy retro feel. The chosen venue is a new industrial space, providing a trendy and blank area, perfect for pimping out to fit to any desired theme! An added touch of punk really aims to appeal to the tattoo market, along with the two models that were specifically chosen to compliment the Yorkshire rock look of the whole photo-shoot.
The models were fashioned with a simple, boho inspired style and the dresses were supplied by the amazing wedding dress designer, Eliza Jane Howell. The gowns fitted perfectly with the boho/vintage look, with sequined details that contrasted and added a softer detail to the whole setting. The accessories were provided by ourselves at The Bridal Emporium, gorgeous floral head wear and white punk heels complimented the female models, Kellie, body art. Byron, the male model, was styled with a more austere look to emphasise on the wedding gowns. The very talented make-up artist, Amanda, from Lipstick and Curls opted for deep purple-red lips which paired well with natural toned eyes.
Just over a week ago, I had the opportunity to visit the Great Northern Wedding Show where Marry Me Ink’s ultimate favourite Legend Bridal Designs had their own slot on the runway – The Alternative Catwalk.
Having such a massive love for Charlotte, Rach and the team at Legend Bridal Designs, I just had to be there and on the front row to witness the gowns in all their glittering glory. The catwalk was perfectly captured by ZT Photography (Which is why I’m using them because, as you can see, I’m busy Instagramming and catching the dresses as they pass the front row!) and she even included a little shoot in the car park afterwards.
This dress was a combination of gorgeous silk and featured a fresh flower train from another of Marry Me Ink’s favourites – Paragon Floral Design. I took a few shots and videos myself and uploaded them to the Marry Me Ink Instagram page if you want to check out the rest of the day! Continue reading

It’s that time again, to get the juicy info from Marry Me Ink reader and bride-to-be Swamps!
February’s installment was all about feeling like a princess when choosing her wedding dress, today it’s all about..
VENTURES OF THE VENUE HUNT
Hello lovely people, so glad that it’s blog time again. I hope you have all had a super romantic February. I spent my Valentines Day with Mr Bee (of course). We filled our faces with LOTS of Italian food, which is my absolute fave. There was a set menu with inclusive cocktails, and as Matt Bee doesn’t drink I drank them alllllllssss, which in my books is only ever going to be a good thing.
So onto this months feature..
I changed my mind a couple of times as to what I wanted this months post to be about, so after much deliberation I fell back on the order that I started to plan my wedding in. Continue reading
