Wedding Memory Commission
My beautiful niece Chantelle married Tom in Italy this year. How excited was I when Tom asked me to make a memory collage of their wedding as a surprise for Chantelle’s 30th birthday. These are the photos Tom wished to include
As you can see Italy provided the perfect backdrop
This is the finished collage. I hope that I have captured the colours of the Italian wedding.
Tom and Chantelle chose not to have traditional hymns but Madness ‘It Must Be Love’ and
Sam Cooke’s ‘What a Wonderful World’
I printed the text and then cut it into strips to make it look like a vintage telegram
Toms Uncle Simon read an Apache Wedding Prayer
Tom’s mum Anna read a quote from the book Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.
I used tiny snippets of ribbon, wedding cards and vintage keys, lace to represent Chantelle ‘s dress and some dried lavender and rosemary from the table decorations
It was a truly beautiful wedding and I hope that I have captured its beauty in this collage
