Today I get to share with you the beautifully tattooed Laura and husband Lee’s outdoor ceremony at Eshott Hall Boutique Hotel in Northumberland from Helen Russell Photography. Laura told me that her and Lee have matching tattoos which they got early on in their relationship..
Lee already had a full back piece and his arms covered and I already had a few. I was kind of testing the waters and joking and said “Ha, we should get matching tattoos!”. To which Lee responded, “Okay, what do you want to get?” I was a little shocked but totally up for it, we were in Edinburgh on a spur of the moment weekend away and we googled the closest tattoo shop, walked in and came out with matching rose tattoos! Good job we are married now!
We had known of each other for quite some time but neither of us had the courage to take the plunge and ask. Eventually, we decided to have a first date. We skipped all of the awkwardness and just decided this day would be the first date! It was a day that ended up being special for other reasons. My Mam, who has now passed, never got to meet Lee but I remember sitting on her hospital bed with her and telling her about him.. We spent that evening in the hospital giggling about boys and browsing ASOS trying to find me a dress for this date! She picked out “THE” dress and shoes. So even though she never got to meet Lee, Lee always says if it wasn’t for the dress (which he refers to as the “Slamming Black Dress”), he isn’t sure there would have been a second date.
