A 35th Wedding Anniversary

I'm so happy to be able to say that I've had parents who have displayed a pretty close to perfect example of what marriage should be like. After meeting and falling in love in their teens, my parents married at 21 and have continued to grow old together ever since. 35 years later they are still saying, "I Do". What an honour it's been for Gaz and I to have learnt so much about marriage from them and an even greater honour to celebrate their 35th Wedding Anniversary with them a few weeks ago. The family decided to put on a celebratory champagne breakfast for the occasion and it was my job to make it look as beautiful as possible. I decided to go with a Romantic Vintage Theme by using lace, burlap, vintage items like old typewriters and old cameras and lots of roses (my moms favourite flower). Personal touches in the decor, like old family photos, scrabble letters (a game they are very fond of) and buntings made from photocopies of old love letters made faded memories come back to life.

Despite the wind- the morning was joyfully spent in the company of an amazing family (if I say so myself)... here are some pictures which captured the event...
