Looking at my Facebook feed it's definitely wedding (and also baby) season! My husband and I are fast approaching our first anniversary too so with that in mind I had a go at a little wedding memory craft project. As some of you know Rockin' Roy and I got married in the forest. We had our ceremony in the Roundhouse at Marthrown of Mabie in the Mabie Forest in Dumfries.
It was a truly fantastic day. Rain poured in various measures for the full 24 hours but we were surrounded by the green of the woods, the love of our friends - it was blissful. Seeing any of the photos from the day always makes me smile. Glasgow's great but I would love to live somewhere as remote Marthrown, somewhere peaceful and green far from the noise of the city. I think I'd mind muddy boots in the hall way much less than the tidal wave of drunken merriment and abuse that passes my bedroom window in equal measure on a Friday night, but I know many others who feel the opposite and would much rather live near the pub and away from the bugs! As I love representations of greenery I bought large canvas print from B&Ms of some trees. Every time my mum visited she took a moment to go into my bedroom and covet said item. Eventually I got a proper canvas print made for her using a beautiful photo my professional photographer sister took of the beach in Cornwall but by the time it arrived she had bought the same print from B&M to hang in her house! Now she has both up but it made me realise how common these prints probably are and how everyone ends with basically the same stuff. With this in mind, I made some alterations to mine to make it a bit more personal.
The little wooden love birds are from one of our wedding congratulation cards. The tiny bunting is cut from the actual bunting fabric we used for the wedding. The images of the piñata, me and Rockin' Roy, and the roundhouse were cut from some copies of our wedding photos.There are some glue marks visible because I was messy and because I took the pictures right after making it but it looks fine now. It was a simple cut and glue operation but now we have something a bit different to hang in our bedroom!
