When work means playing in the sand in Scarborough

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting up with Racheal of Marry Me Ink for lunch, and as we sat there discussing The Tattooed Wedding Collective (among other things), I realised that as we hurtled into wedding season we didnt get round tosharing the mini shoots from Scarborough Tattoo Show. Some of you may be aware that we have teamed up with Rachael to create the Tattooed Wedding Collective – a bunch of wedding suppliers crazy about tattoos trying to encourage you guys to embrace your ink on your wedding day. As part of this we are getting involved in a few Tattoo events (Tattoo Tea Party and Scarborough) bringing these crazy fools to you… because who really enjoys a traditional wedding fair?

We took our gowns and our girls and gave Samlesbury Hall a catwalk show Legend style. Lauren and Adam had just booked Samlesbury Hall for their wedding and before that excitement had begun to sink in Lauren had watched our catwalk show and promptly ‘lost’ her groom-to-be so we could talk dress and we are SOOO glad she did. Not only did we make Laurens dress and coat, but we also made dresses for her 5 bridesmaids in amethyst tulle. How good do they all look! Lauren is a girl after my own heart. I got so excited hearing plans about their wedding and honeymooning in Disneyland over Halloween! OMG too exciting for words! and we’re Continue Reading →
