A Boutique And Glamourous 1920s LA Wedding – Stephanie & Jonas

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Who got engaged over the winter break? I’d love to hear your stories and see you beautiful rings.. Make sure you go and share them over on the Marry Me Ink Facebook page!

Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you Stephanie and Jonas’ LA wedding at Culver City Hotel, full of 1920s glamour, from Steve Cowell Photo.

We met each other at a hockey game. My roommate (Chelsea) at the time had tickets to go see the LA Kings play and her date fell through at the last minute so I decided to join her. She befriended my future husband in line while ordering beer and the rest was history, and ironically we both were wearing long sleeves the whole night and didn’t know until we became Instagram “friends” the next day how tattooed we both really were. 

The whole wedding was pretty much DIY. I didn’t want a wedding planner – I wanted it to be my own and even if things didn’t turn out perfect I was okay with that because it was something that I created with love and from my heart. I knew I wanted it to be 20’s themed with a touch of that Gatsby glamorous feel so I really stuck to that idea, almost everything was hand made or customized. Every single detail was thought of, almost like putting a puzzle together, every piece just fit so it was really neat seeing that vision come to life.

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.

A 1980s Blitz Kids Bridal Shoot – Way Out Wedding

Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you this awesome bridal shoot, from Erin the brain behind Way Out Wedding and Paola de Paola Photography, full of shoulder pads and big hair.

Growing up in the 1980s, my head was turned at an early age by Adam and The Ants, Duran Duran, Visage, and all the outlandish fashion of the club scene. It’s such a visually exciting look, and completely original and representative of each person. No carbon copies back then; everything was borne of pure imagination. I just had to do a shoot that incorporated this into a bridal setting, no doubt about it. And I knew exactly who to ask to be on the team!! Fellow fans of this scene, who know it, love it, and brought serious expertise to the day. And there’s a huge thanks to Myriam from La dame au beret, who was this superstar stylist on the day, taking the reins for creating the looks superbly. She was in her element, and did such amazing things with the dresses, jewellery, and overall looks for the models.

All these suppliers took the look from my mind and made it into something so wonderful and beyond my dreams!

The dresses belong to my new preloved bridal range, No Debutante. Myriam and Lauren sourced most of the outfits, and these ladies know their early 1980s stuff! We added these finds to some dresses I already had in my stock, and together these perfectly represented the New Romantic scene crossed with edgy bridal. We teamed them up with glittering jewellery from Wolf & Moon.

A Music Filled, Seaside Wedding With A 50s Tattooed Bride – Sophie & Kyle


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.
