Summer Wedding

August 14, 2010

The first official wedding at school was made eventful by the torrential downpour…most of August’s rain in half an hour, but nothing would dampen the spirits of the adorable couple…the bride was overheard saying ‘this has been the best day of my life’ and may they have many more happy days of marriage ahead!

Note:  I made the sign from a perfectly sized piece of wood (found object in the shed!) and used easy spray-on gloss paint (leftover from the linen basket I dolled up…more about that later).  Then I printed ‘wedding’ in a curly font, traced it and used acrylic paint to fill in…darling HM drilled the holes for the lovely ribbon I had in my over flowing ribbon drawer.  Et voila, it does the job brilliantly (if i may say so myself!) and all the guests knew where to find the very pretty wedding party…see below.

The natural light in the marquee casts a special colour to all the trimmings and decor for this wedding party.  Their theme colours were navy blue and pink and butterflies were abundant.  The bride made the gorgeous butterfly seating plan, isn’t it sweet?

    hi there, just want to say love the butterfly effect, any idea when i can get them please


    • Hi Cathia, Thank you for asking…I agree the butterflies are lovely. The bride designed these herself, simply by tracing and carefully cutting out a butterfly outline and adding crystal stickers for a bit of sparkle. To add to the butterfly effect, just the ‘bodies’ were glued to the board which meant the wings (with guests names) fluttered in the breeze! xx
