Wedding bells were ringing …


… not only for the royal couple !

Two young friends of mine took the “big step” recently too, and (although their wedding held few similarities with the big event in London) I have to admit that the idea to paint a commemorative tray for them came from seeing the ones being sold in honor of Prince William and Kate.

Richard and Kelly’s wedding was held outdoors and over 200 well-wishers were there to celebrate. It was a glorious occasion and will be long remembered by all those who attended.

My little tray was nothing like the elaborate ones that were made for the royal couple … no gold edging for instance … but it was made to serve the same purpose … just a small remembrance of the glorious day when my two friends become as one.

Hello Ginnie,

Weddings whether big or small is always a grand occasion and a very special in the lives of the wedding couple.

I missed Princess Diana at the royal wedding. She also had a fabulous wedding.

The tray made by you for this wedding is lovely and is very original.The couple will surely treasure it all their lives.

I must congratulation for your creative thinking in making this tray look beautiful.

Wish you a lovely Sunday Ginnie,
Joseph

I love the tray your painted, particularly since our hummingbirds just showed up this weekend.

I am sure your tray will long be charished after the, electic can opener, toasters, bedding etc is long worn out with no memory of who gave what as a wedding gift.
