Meaning is found in the small details of your wedding day and it’s those small thoughtful details that turn a great celebration into a very personal and memorable one. I am a strong believer that your wedding should reflect who you are and what’s important to you. So if that’s the case, how do you personalise your wedding?
There are many brides, for whatever the reason, who’s father is unable to walk them down aisle or be at their wedding day. I still remember my dad just before we were about to walk down the aisle. He went all quiet, a little red in his face and a bit awkward, you know, when you are trying to hold back the emotion you kind of go all serious. It is a really sweet memory.
For Marie, her father Svein, was unable to be there on her special day. He passed away in 2009. On her wedding day he still had an important place and I think it was really beautiful the small touches of him throughout her day.
One of the things she did was to have a small locket tied around her bouquet. Inside the locket was two photo’s, one of her and her father and one of just her dad in his favourite cowboy hat. It’s nice to think that in a way he was with her as she walked down the aisle. It was a really beautiful way to honour him and add meaning to her day.
She also had ‘Pappa’ tattooed on her wrist. We were able to capture these meaningful details so Marie and her family can remember for many years to come.
How will you make your wedding day meaningful? Is there someone special you would like to remember or funny stories you’d like to share? What’s important to you?
