More friends getting married...

This seems to be the year everyone is getting married, been to more weddings and receptions this year than in my life up till now!

 This time it was the wedding of a couple of my OH's school friends.

The idea for the alphabet photography surname presents actually came about when we got invited to this wedding early this year... we just happened to go to another friends wedding before this one and thought the surname frame was an awesome unique present that we made for them ourselves...

This wedding is the reason I'm now hooked on hunting out letters everywhere we go. Got quite a little collection of letters now so hopefully I can start taking orders on them soon... if only I could find some Cs, Ds, Gs and Ps!

Wedding gifts for our friends

 Back in August 2 of our friends got married so I took to making them a personalised card and gifts to match their colourscheme. The wedding colourscheme was sage green so I took the green as the main colour for the card and added sage ribbon to the flags.

 I'm in love with my SLR camera it's still a pretty new toy to me so I loved playing with it to make this present! Inspired by the alphabet photography we bought ourselves earlier in the year I decided to give it a go myself to make really personal presents.
All of the 'letter' photos have been taken on our travels. Our friend's surname is OAK, k really is not an easy letter to find! The O was taken in Amsterdam, the A in Puerto Banus and the K in Sabinillas, Spain.

Last but not least I made them a pair of celebration flags. Just married on the front with a sage green bow, their names and the date on the back. Love how versatile these flags are, I think I'd have them as part of the guest favours should I ever need them :)
