Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you tattooed bride CJ and husband Grant’s Western Australia beach wedding from Kate and Luke of Photogerson Photography.
Grant and I have known each other since we were really little. When we were really young both of our families were living in Botswana and really good friends. While they socialised around the pool we used to play in the mud and stuff. When I was 10ish my family moved to Canada and a year or 2 after, Grants family moved to Australia. We lost touch until one day I was bored and added a bunch of people on Facebook that I knew from Botswana and he didn’t remember who I was so he sent me a message. We got to chatting and I was going traveling to Australia so I figured I would go and see him. He picked me up from the airport, we saw each other and just knew.

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.

Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to introduce you to Ed Godden Photography. I’ve had the chance to feature one of Ed’s weddings before and I’m excited to be sharing some sneak peeks to what others are to be featured on the blog! Ed very kindly let me ask him a few questions about his photography style and previous couples.
I’m Ed, and I’m the photographer, editing machine, chief coffee maker, and general dogs body at Ed Godden Photography.
I’ve been a full time pro photographer for 20 years now… ever since I left college at 17 years old. I shoot weddings all year round for alternative, creative, and chilled-out couples in love.
My style of shooting is very relaxed, stylish, simple, documentary photography. Capturing special moments and telling a true story of the day, in a funky and stylish manner is always my main priority on a wedding day.
What inspires your work?
My couples inspire me to push me year after year. Seeing the joy I bring to a couple and their friends and family is the best feeling in the world. I shoot at least 30 weddings a year, so am always trying new things and experimenting.
What are your favourite brides to work with?
I’m in a very fortunate position where most brides that book me are chilled-out, laid back brides, that are happy to put complete trust into me on their wedding day. Allowing me to just shoot away, and do my thing!
