To have and to hold ..... Wedding journals and more!

With this ring I thee wed
because the answer was yesssss......

Well it is that time of year again when couples are busy organising their special day!

It can be fun of course and also stressful with all the things that have to be remembered.  The venue, the bridesmaids and grooms men, flower girl, invitations, speeches, presents for the mothers and fathers, bridesmaids and grooms men need I go on...

So not only have I got commissions for some beautiful wedding samplers but also wedding planner journals as well.

Inside each journal is pages for you to write all your lists of things to do and buy.  The wedding dress fittings need to be scheduled etc etc but this journal has blank pages for you to develop your own needs and wants.  It also has a stunning vintage cover on with hand embroidery and vintage French linen,fabrics and of course stunning vintage mother of pearl buttons .... This is a keep sake for brides to look back on.  I am going to be cutting out pieces of Vintage French linens and they are all fully lined with vintage paisley fabrics.  This is a wonderful pre present for a bride to be... I can do all sorts of designs for any type of wedding.  I really enjoy taking commissions on these and people come up with ideas for me to work with.  One mother of the bride to be has sent me some bits of fabrics from when her daughter was only 1 years old and some memories to write in the front cover for her daughter as well..... I am so pleased and delighted that I have been given this piece of their history to make into a journal.

I have had an order for three so I must get designing and making for their up and coming special day.... some have a year to plan and some are even planning to get married later this year so I must get on with it.

Having spent four days sorting through my stitchery stashes I know what I am about so I am off to get designing and making .......

Happy Stitching!


  1. That is such a lovely idea Sarah. I am hoping to become an independent Wedding celebrant, so I must make sure any brides know about these beautiful books. Jane xx
