Tattoos, Lace, Graffiti and a Stag – Styled Wedding Photo Shoot with Marry Me Ink

The best plans, lately, seem to be the ones which happen on the spot. And that’s exactly what happened in this styled wedding photo shoot with Rachael Urquhart. She’s the Chief Blogger at Marry Me Ink, and I’ve wanted to photograph her for aaaaages. She’s pretty damn gorgeous, and has amazing tattoos. I’m too chicken to get my own, so I live vicariously through others, heh.

I had originally just wanted to a mini portrait session, nothing fancy. I just wanted to get my camera out and shoot, with no big ideas in mind. Exercise the old creative brain, if you like. With less than one week to the shoot, Rachael told me she had got hair AND make-up sorted, thanks to Sarah’s Doo-Wop Dos. THEN she told me The Couture Company, my favourite dress suppliers, were providing dresses. To say I squeaked a lot is an understatement! As if that wasn’t enough, on arriving at The Couture Co, chief seamstress Jo told me there were some giant paper flowers sent from Strange Case Collective. AND, there was a weird pop-up garden thing round the corner. Lastly, Stag Barbers, in the Custard Factory, let us take over his salon a bit. Hello? CREATIVE OVERLOAD.

We had an ACE day, and I totally can’t wait to do it again. Here’s my (seriously tiny) selection of faves from the shoot. There are FRILLIONS more. Some of them are over on Marry Me Ink!

Amazing! I love the dresses (and her tatts!!!). Beautiful photography but that goes without saying!

Marry Me Ink

LOVED this day! Thanks for so much fun! Big love lady 🙂 <3

Giant flowers and Couture Co? What’s not to love? I also secretly want her necklace. Yes please.

Gotta be honest – I contemplated trying to lift the necklace. Blummin loved it.
