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? It was while we were at Scarborough Tattoo Show; working with Andy of Peacock Obscura and Stuart of Kokino, that we took the opportunity to whisk our models way for 3 mini shoots: I’m going to let the images speak for themselves… Staring out to see… Light and Dark: This set is used to show our Bellatrix gown in both ivory and black… Vintage seaside… And then, possibly my favourite images from the weekend…   Save Save Continue Reading →

Tattooed Wedding Collective take over Scarborough Tattoo Convention

Last weekend we took a mighty road trip to Scarborough to be part of the Tattooed Wedding Collective at Scarborough Tattoo Show; a group of like minded, heavily tattooed wedding professionals bringing all things wedding to a tattoo convention. It’s just one of the alternative arenas we like to get involved with, and one where all three of us (Rachel, Tracy and myself) all manage to attend. It sounds like a crazy idea, but what better way to spend your weekend than on a beautiful coastline in the glorious sunshine, with our favourite people, showing couples they can have their cake and eat it, oh and getting tattooed ourselves as well! Win win I say. We also took the time to have some photo shoots with our amazing models Sam and Katy who gave up their weekend to come and play with us. Several times throughout the weekend they could be found on the beach with Rachael (Marry Me Ink) and Andy (Peacock Obscura). The shoots warrant a blog of their own so I’m just going to share a few images here before showing you the rest of the weekend… Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Legend Bridal It’s fair Continue Reading →
