Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you Brittany and Marc’s gorgeous wedding from Sara of This Modern Love Photography that took place at The Jewell House in Georgia. They both wore brooches to remember their dogs that were no longer with them which is the cutest thing, ever.
I (Brittany) met Marc through a family friend when I went to watch my brother play softball. She took one look at me and said “Oh I know someone you have to meet.” She contacted me online, and so did he.. The rest is history.
We tried to insert our personalities into the day as much as we could. I opted for a pink wedding dress because I’ve never worn white ever and couldn’t envision myself in a “traditional” gown. When I was younger I thought I’d wear a gown with sleeves but as soon as I started getting tattooed I knew that strapless was the only way to go.
Happy New Year! Welcome to all those who got engaged over the Christmas period.. Also, which of you have their weddings this year – I have mine!
To kick off 2018 on Marry Me Ink, I get to bring you this gorgeous elopement from Tiree Dawson Photography – Sharon and Richard had their intimate day at Cragwood Country House Hotel and it was perfect!
I met Richard at 19 when I started my first full time job when I was 19 where he was already working at the same company. I was single at the time and Richard was with another girl. We hit it off straight away and became good work
friends pretty fast. We remained close through all this and fought like an old married couple.. 6 years later my relationship fell apart and so did Richards, and I am telling you now these events were separate and not connected at all but everyone put 2 and 2 together and came up with 5.
Richard was a rock for me – A total of 8 years later after having to leave my job and move away as everyone was sure we had had this massive scandalous affair, we have a home, a menagerie and a wonderful life together, Richard proposed on Christmas eve 2015, 12 October 2017 we got married.
I think it was how we got married that represented us both the most. It was almost an elopement – With just Richard and myself, the venue organised the whole thing and even provided the witnesses. That is us all over. People assume from our appearance, coloured hair, tattoos, bald head and big beard (obviously only in Richards case), that we are confident and love being the centre of attention and that could not be further from the truth. Richard was so concerned about being on display while getting married that he dreaded the thought of getting married, what is the point if one of you hates ever minute, it is about the two of you so that is what we made it.
Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you Danyell and Paul’s wedding that took place in Gretna Green at Water Gardens Wedding Venue earlier this year. You may remember their woodland engagement shoot last month and Daz Mack Photography was there to capture their day and it awesome – They had their pug Viggo there on the day too.
My tattoos did take a big part into my consideration when choosing a dress as I’m a plus size. I wanted my back piece on show which Paul was doing for me as part of a wedding present (he’s an amazing tattoo artist @Watsonsith), so I wanted an open back and a tulle skirt, which I found. I went for ivory as I wanted the whole romantic look – everyone thought I’d wear a colour which I was tempted to do dark grey but my sister helped sway me to the ivory which I’m thankful for.
We have a few couples’ tattoos and will no doubt get more in the future as we’re in the industry it’s a no brainier that we’ll get more, be it for more pets or kids – just our growing family and love for each other.
Today on Marry Me Ink ,I get to share with you this beautiful crisp morning engagement shoot from Kelley Deal Photography that took place in a cemetery – Cool, right?! Based in North Carolina, Kelley loves weddings, laughs and being outside which is definitely shown through Jasmine and Nick’s engagement shoot.
Let me tell you a few immediate fun facts about these two:
1. Her ring came from a pawn shop.
2. They have a series of matching tattoos already.
3. They chose a cemetery for their engagement photos.
“These guys have the coolest vibe and were so awesome at being themselves in front of the camera – no easy task. One of my favorite engagement shoots AND locations, I can only imagine what their wedding will be like!”
