So last weekend marked the 6th Tattoo Tea Party at Manchester’s Event City where Legend Bridal and I launched The Tattooed Wedding Collective and had with us some amazing suppliers who we loved getting to now over the course of the weekend after only ever speaking online.
After stamping 100 bags and filling them with goodies each morning, it was great to meet some awesome people over the weekend including some of you that are planning your own tattooed wedding! The epic ZT Photography joined us over the weekend and took the models and myself for a mini shoot by the dodgems on the last day – We had so much fun!

As well as Debbie’s show stopping cakes, we also had Paragon Floral Design with us over the weekend and their eye catching area – complete with flying crows. They certainly attracted the majority of the visitors to our corner.

We also had the delight of having Art for Soles customised shoes with us too – Complete with Harry Potter and Walking Dead shoes and bags!

Today I’m excited to announce some massive that I will be involved with this weekend! If you follow the Marry Me Ink Facebook page and Twitter page, you’ll already know this.
I am SUPER excited to announce that I am officially an Award Sponsor for this year’s Manchester International Tattoo Show taking place Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th of August at Manchester Central (For other Mancunians.. It’s also known as the GMex)
The Manchester Tattoo Show (which is already firmly established as one of the UK’s most popular conventions) returns to Manchester Central this summer and is bigger than ever.
For the past ten years, the Manchester Tattoo Show has been one of the leading conventions on the UK tattoo scene. The event attracts tattoo artists of the highest calibre to the city for a weekend of fantastic ink and great entertainment.
With over 5,000sqm of the Manchester Central being used, the event welcomes world-class artists, live acts and entertainment and traders and vendors for visitors to enjoy.
This growth comes following a growth in demand and investment from Jazz Events, which already runs three leading UK tattoo conventions and acquired the Manchester Tattoo Show in 2012. Shelley Bond, event manager commented: “We’re excited to be enhancing this already popular show, giving ticket holders a better than ever chance of getting inked by one of the world’s leading tattoo artists. This year we have ‘Circus’ theme with related acts and performances taking place all weekend; there will be a lot going on and something for everyone.”
