Can I suggest that you get yourself a tea or coffee,
as this is quite a long post!!!
All this happened within 8 weeks, with Christmas
in the middle of it!!
With lots of laughter too!!
As some of you know, I have been helping my friend Lorraine
with arranging her wedding.
They had been together for 30 years!!
They also have a daughter and grandchildren!!
So it was about time!!
The first thing for me to do last December, was to make
They are 2 champagne glasses that linked together
at the front.
Lorraine bought her dress and it was just a few inches too long.
So I fitted the length and then cut it.
The dress had 2 layers and both were very organza like.
So we used bonding web, as sewing them wouldn't work.
This was the cake and I showed Lorraine how to make
the Roses, so we could make them together.
I then stuck them onto the cake.
We did have so much fun doing them!
For the top of the cake, as they are a more mature couple,
we came up with the idea of a wooden heart
and I covered it with Gilding Flakes.
Lorraine bought the favour boxes on line and filled them
with chocolates. I die cut the tags and did the place names on
the computer and Lorraine stuck them on the tags,
The next job was the flower arrangements for the tables.
We went out to find some decent silk flowers
and after a few failures, we found these.
I then had the job of doing the arrangements and had
Lorraine chopping each stem, to the length I wanted!
She was a great assistant!!
Fortunately I still had a roll of my Florist tape and ribbon.
This was for the top table.
These were for the guest tables
I then suddenly remembered I hadn't made their card.
So I went with the theme colour of navy blue, with a touch of pink.
I had to make a box for it too.
A terrible picture as the days have been so dark all day.
On the morning of the Wedding, just Lorraine and myself went to
the Manor House Hotel, where the wedding was being held.
We had a nice relaxing time together and I did her make up
and hair for her.
I had made her posy for her a couple of days before.
I had also made her a garter and finished it the day before!
I also managed to fit in cutting and colouring
her hair and mine. Oh! Gave her Dad's hair a trim too!!
She looked lovely.
This is one of her Grandchildren and her bridesmaid.
She looked so pretty.
Here are the 2 bridesmaids and the ring bearer!!
The happy couple!
The picture is not very good, as the big windows behind were
far too bright.
We had a lovely time and the food was very good too.
It all went of very smoothly.
Don't know what to do with myself now!!
I do really!! Start making things for the
