The tables had varying sizes of gems, plus favours(either vodka for adults and chocolate balls for children) all handmade and individually labelled. Each table had a table name of the places that Sam and Gav had visited on their travels through Italy where Gav had planned to "pop the question", the story was on the reverse of these and were laminiated. Just to make it clear that these have taken many months to make prior to the wedding. The flowers through out the venue were arranged by Suze and myself so everything from the candlabras to the top table to the canvas sprays. These were in creams, greens and whites and were duplicated in the bridal bouquets. The chair sashes were to highlight the colour of the bridesmaids dresses which were two tone and it all looked so elegant. I have to say that when I went back in the room it did take my breath away and made me so proud that we had produced that for my daughter/Suze's sister. I have been asked whether I would like to do this full time, I know that you should never say never but.....x

Just thought that I would share the card that I made for Sam and Gav's wedding, it's A5 in size and lots of varying whites with texture. I was pleased that I managed to use the Sizzix embossing folders to create an extended embossed A5 size piece without having the line across, you know how you get that if you don't pattern match it up and leave the already embossed piece protruding through your bigshot before putting it through a second time. With me so far?
The crystal buckle was from Mei flower, it was £1.50 so it you are thinking of making these cards in bulk try and find these wholesale! The sheer ribbon is from a bridal shop and the glitter letters are from one of those boxed jobs of glitter letters and glued onto some textured cardstock , machine stitched and with white leather thong added which attaches to the buckle. It is much more elegant in the flesh. I love this card.
Here is a sneak peek at one of the photo's that AJ took of the happy couple, gorgeous dress Sam wore, worth all the ups and downs that we went through to get this dress. Totally gorge!
Gav looks very dapper too! It was a lovely day (even with those showers in between) and it went really smoothly and by all accounts everyone had a good time-that's what its all about, isn't it? So, congratulations to Mr and Mrs Blundell, who by now will be sunnying themselves in another country. x

On a different note, I know that I haven't blogged much of the wedding items that I have made but I will, promise! xx
