Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you this gorgeous post-wedding shoot from Agnes Black Photography. Agnes absolutely LOVES doing anniversary and post wedding sessions and loved it when Rachael contacted her about getting some portraits of them in their wedding attire again.
When Rachael & Marc got in touch they already knew through a friend I have a love for post wedding portraits. What is more awesome and romantic that getting back in your wedding dress and spending an entire day reminiscing and reliving those moments in an epic location with the person you devoted your life to. These guys were undeniably besotted with one another.
Rachael told me that she was pretty creative with a love of photography and Marc a tattooist! I knew I had to shoot their session! They loved their wedding images but on the day they didn’t have a great deal of time for them and they had dreamed of having some portraits in a beautiful location. I couldn’t believe my luck and I was stoked to be shooting their portraits.
We wanted to find somewhere off the beaten track that would be beautiful in the autumn colours. We found a perfect little spot that we drove to, it was a small dense woodland surrounded by open fields. These guys were perfect with one another, and although it was freezing and very windy they forgot about that, they were so in love and wrapped up within each other it was amazing.

Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you Kira and David’s wedding from ZT Photography who I’m excited to have as part of The Tattooed Wedding Collective this weekend at The Tattoo Tea Party! They both got married at The Shireburn Arms Hotel in Clitheroe, Lancashire and it was full of fun on the day!
We actually met in a nightclub over 6 years ago. It sounds a bit like a film but it really was one of them moments where we both glanced across the room and caught each other’s eye. I said a few words to my friend and decided to pluck up the courage and walk over, however I got half way and freaked out so veered from his direction. As I turned he somehow managed to get in front of me which incidentally made me trip over his feet and into his arms. No words were said we just ended up kissing and now here we are married. I was hoping we could get married in the nightclub but unfortunately it got shut down.
We had a variety of things really that represented us, we are quiet quirky I would say and like to be a bit different especially with it being our actual day. Dave’s a bit of a MOD so was great to see all the valleys scooters come together and surprise him on the big day. We also love Northern soul so I asked a young dancing group called ‘Young Souls’ to entertain our guests at night – They can do some incredible high kicks!

Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share tattooed bride Jaclyn and husband Joseph’s intimate chapel wedding from Tara O. Photos – the fab vintage pin up photographer.
We first saw each other on Instagram. We started by dropping comments and likes on each other’s photos. Then a few weeks later we started chatting through DM. We continued talking every day for a few months, we would talk about everything from our favourite snacks to our goals in life. Our conversations lasted all night until one of us fell asleep. After that we knew we had to meet in person. From that moment on we knew it was forever!
Our wedding was held at a Spanish style chapel that had a very vintage feel, along with a day of the dead themed cake. I had wedding cake themed bridal shoes and a Spanish inspired headdress. They were the bits that represented us as a couple.
You may remember that I eventually got round to blogging the first half of Jo and Leigh’s carnival wedding a few weeks ago. The ultimate tattooed bride Miss Jo Black got married last year and, in the run up, blogged for Marry Me Ink with all her planning details. Jo and her husband Leigh decided to split their wedding celebrations over two days – One day for the legal part with their very closest family and the second day celebrating with all of their friends. Today I get to share with you Jo and Leigh’s second day of celebrations from photographer Matthew Harris Photo.
We decided to have a Victorian Carnival theme at the reception, a sort of freak show and circus vibe because we are far from normal people, and we wanted to just feel as comfortable as possible on our wedding day! Everything was also black and gold which looked amazing!
I basically hand made everything decoration wise, roped my sister in law, bridesmaids and my mother in to a lot of making bunting and pompoms, hand painting signs and decorating our own cakes! Being an artist I really wanted to have as much input into the design elements of the day as possible. I kept a lot of it secret from Leigh, I wanted him to be wowed on the day! Everything was in black and gold, the best part of it for me was doing the cakes, we had so much fun and they looked amazing!
