The weather was lovely and the venue was pretty. The groom looked dapper and the bride looked stunning. All was set for a wonderful White wedding. And what a fun day it was! Congratulations Dave and Rachel White and thanks for sharing your special day.

I decided to use some the vintage kimono fabric I have been collecting to make a cushion for their wedding present. I used natural linen fabric as the base and a different piece of silk kimono for the detail on the back to add an extra bit of interest.

For their card I wanted to do something a little different from a wedding scene of a bride and groom. I was inspired after making my Mother's Day 'One in a 1000000' card design to play with typography a little more.
The final design I chose used the date of their wedding as the main design element. Butterflies were a feature of their wedding invitations so I wanted to use them on the card (I am also a bit obsessed with butterflies so probably would have used them regardless!) I used Romantiques as the font and some amazing brushes and textures I found online. Click to link through to the sources.
