Just over a week ago, I had the opportunity to visit the Great Northern Wedding Show where Marry Me Ink’s ultimate favourite Legend Bridal Designs had their own slot on the runway – The Alternative Catwalk.
Having such a massive love for Charlotte, Rach and the team at Legend Bridal Designs, I just had to be there and on the front row to witness the gowns in all their glittering glory. The catwalk was perfectly captured by ZT Photography (Which is why I’m using them because, as you can see, I’m busy Instagramming and catching the dresses as they pass the front row!) and she even included a little shoot in the car park afterwards.
This dress was a combination of gorgeous silk and featured a fresh flower train from another of Marry Me Ink’s favourites – Paragon Floral Design. I took a few shots and videos myself and uploaded them to the Marry Me Ink Instagram page if you want to check out the rest of the day! Continue reading

If you’re following the Marry Me Ink Facebook page, you’ll notice that I spent the last Bank Holiday Monday at James’ Places Mitton Hall for their Off-Beat Wedding Fair. I had the chance to meet Jack of Project Valentine Photography who took plenty of photos on the day of everyone’s spectacular stalls.
The main reason for me visiting the Off-Beat Wedding Fair at Mitton Hall last Monday was to work with the ever awesome Kerry Baker Make Up.
Kerry was showcasing two demos throughout the day, the first being the “Wonderful Wing” and the second being the “Perfect Pout”. If you didn’t know, I was Kerry’s model for the day.

Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you the awesome A Most Curious Wedding Fair.. It’s a wedding show full of style, colour and is just awesome! There are two locations over the next fortnight where fabulous suppliers will be waiting to meet you!
Founder Becky Hoh-Hale, got married in 2008 just before the vintage explosion, so struggled with even getting a caterer who would serve food ‘on old plates’. So what followed was a now familiar story, but slightly pioneering at the time, of Becky collecting all her own vintage china, making her own bunting, backdrops and tablecloths and sourcing props that were unique to her and and her husband and were of course ‘vintage’. This lead to her hiring out the pieces after her wedding to other like minded, and time-short brides who may not have the time or inclination to collect every thing they needed, under the name A Most Curious Party. That’s old news now, with a whole host of stories like that in the wedding industry, but Becky took it one step further. Following a disheartening spate of exhibiting at wedding shows with her wares, Becky realised the same pioneer spirit could be applied to wedding fairs and she might just be the girl to do it. Most Curious, the wedding show for the style-savvy couple was born.
Just as A Most Curious Party started as offering couples something that fit with their everyday lifestyle loves (a beautiful, slick version of it of course) Most Curious now unites trend aware and directional suppliers with the free and forward thinking couples who want their wedding day to be as design and fashion led as the rest of their lives, as free spirited and wild as their love and not particularly subscribing to a hugely traditional aesthetic for their big day, just what they love – but focused down into a wonderful 24 hour production!
