Kenzie and Jeremy had one goal for their August wedding – to break Vegas! “As soon as we got engaged we knew we didn’t want a typical wedding”, said the bride. “We didn’t want anything in a church, or anything really traditional. We also knew we didn’t want to have anything huge, and one way to eliminate a massive guest list is to make it a destination wedding.”

“Our friends are some of the most amazing people on the planet and we wanted to be able to go somewhere where everyone could let loose and have a blast. So we decided to pick up and go to Vegas. It’s an amazing city where dreams can come true, and ours did. We wanted our wedding to be fun, light hearted, crazy, amazing. We were very honoured that Jeremy’s dad was there too. He hadn’t seen him for 20 years and he made it out to the wedding!”

Disney inspired tattooed wedding (54)

It’s not often that Disney and heavily tattooed couples go together, but for Vicky and Lee, that’s exactly what inspired their destination wedding in Thailand.

The tattoo artist pair met when Vicky got a job at the studio where Lee was working. “Our first meeting was on a night out at Rock City, when he approached me with a drink to congratulate me getting a receptionist job at the tattoo studio where he worked”, the bride told me. “He was so shy that it’s probably the most words I heard come out of him for the next few years. After maybe six years I actually got the opportunity to learn how to tattoo myself. He’d always been supportive of this and it’s now lead to us opening our own studio with a couple of friends.”

The couple got engaged Thailand a few years so it was only fitting that they returned there for their wedding. “It’s a place that means a lot to us so we knew we wanted to get married there”, she continued. “When you have so many special memories you want to share them with those closest to you. Although its not always a popular decision to do a wedding abroad, we couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else. Its the land of smiles and is so beautiful.”

When we first meet them our intention was to make a film about her recipes, but when we arrived at the studio, and we saw Dean tattooing her, we instantly knew that this had to be the shoot: love and ink! When the tiger tattoo was finished we took them to the streets to shoot their love in a very different way.”
