First Wedding Anniversary Gift

Now before you all get excited or annoyed that I ran off and got married in secret I should tell you straight away that the first wedding anniversary I’m referring to here is my daughters!

1st Wedding Anniversary

I wanted to enter this piece in the White With 1 Challenge since it fits so well and in order to do that I needed to have it on my blog. February’s challenge is WHITE + PINK + HEARTS so it’s perfect.

Since this photo was taken, John framed it with a white floating frame and it now hangs proudly in Rebecca and Greg’s kitchen.

I love that so much of the picture is directly related to their wedding. It was created on a  12″ x 16″  canvas using acrylic paints and mediums. Although it looks slightly squiffy in the picture it’s not. That’s just my poor photographic skills!

The poem is printed on white tissue paper and was attached with gel medium. It’s the one I read during the ceremony, awwwww!

The grey card was torn from the hotel’s wedding brochure with special words underlined.

Pink Roses Wedding Invitations

 

The deep pink roses paper in the left bottom heart is shop bought whilst the pale pink is paper Rebecca embossed herself. She used both in her wedding invitation packets.

Fudge Wedding Favour

 

The rose material heart was taken from the lid cover of the homemade fudge wedding favours.

 

Pick Ribbon Wedding Name Cards

 

The name cards are the ones Rebecca made for their places on the top table.

 

R G Roses Wedding Cake Bouquet

 

The white beads and ribbon along the bottom came from the wedding cake.

The roses in the left bottom hand corner are from a photo of Rebecca’s bouquet.

 

 

It’s been a lovely trip down memory lane going through the wedding photographs to write this post. So many beautiful memories of a very special day.

Hmmmm. Not sure how I’m going to follow that for this year’s present?!

    What a beautiful gift for your daughter… thanks for the ideas too; my brother has just got married and I am planning on doing a big wooden frame for them with bits and pieces I ‘borrowed’ from the wedding! 😉 Thanks for joining in at White With 1 xo
