The Urban Tel-Aviv Bride

Today on Marry Me Ink I get to bring you a cool shoot from Lior Rotstein Photography. As well as the cute simplistic tattoos, we have some gorgeous dresses from Lee Kodo – The perfect dresses for urban bride.

‘Urban Bride’ is already a holistic concept in the wedding-world.. We gave our own interpretation to the urban bride. A bride who dares to wear a dress which is not necessarily the romantic-springy-flowery one.

The makeup by Ruth Toledo, we wanted to be subtle but present, skin-tone work is minimal, moisture-cream blended with a light makeup, light powdering, and winter toned lips (we used rich red, plum, bordeaux colours). The hair is styled in a light fashion (“I just woke up like this”). All of that comes with a photographic documentation. We gave a few ‘look’-proposals, with mixing varieties of styles – 20’s with a masculine jeans jacket that we found in our closet, metal blue stiletto heels.

An Urban, Graffiti Filled Groom Shoot


I couldn’t wait to share with you this urban styled groom shoot from Matt Selby Photography. I love it that I get to share tattooed grooms as well as tattooed brides! Matt decided on an impromptu photoshoot in Nottingham’s Lace Market, where nothing was planned, apart from the shoot. After meeting up with his trusty assistant Gareth, they met up with model (and recently crowned Mr Nottingham) Chris Wells


The following images were taken to demonstrate the photographic potential for grooms (or brides for that matter) in urban areas. The areas covered in the shoot are all within a 5 minute walk from each other so one doesn’t have to venture far to find ideal photo opportunities.


I find it interesting to walk down a street with the intention on finding a suitable area for a photograph, with this mind-set one can quickly find scenes/backdrops that could otherwise be ignored. One particular building I came across had some serious photographic potential, a boarded up door, paint cracking & peeling off the walls the kind of building you don’t expect to see in Nottingham’s Lace Market – the sort of building people will pass on a daily basis and simply ignore, maybe we’re subconsciously drawn to the opposite in urban areas, as we’re so used to seeing designer shops, vibrant colours, advertisements etc which makes building like this go unnoticed. For me, finding these hidden gems can not only be satisfying when you see the final images, but can set you apart from other photographers.
