Brighton was lovely and sunny, a happy few days...


The wedding was also lovely (but now I'm nervous!)



The poem across the top is by Robert Burns...

O my Love is like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June;
O my Love is like the melodie
That's sweetly played in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I;
And I will love thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry:

Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun;
I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.

Thank you! They're off on honeymoon for a fortnight so I'll find out when they get back if they like it or if they just think its a bit random! You never know :)

I don' think I have ever seen anything so amazing - the detail, it looks so delicate and beautiful.
I am so jealous - of you, for being able to make it and of the recipient for receiving such a fab gift.

oh. I'm so glad I finally dug my way out of my stupid cave and started reading my favourite blogs again (still 1000+ unread posts!). Sarah, this is absolutely gorgeous. You are my hero.
