Beautiful Brides and Wonderful Weddings

All this lovely blossom has made me think of confetti, as the pink and white petals blow about in the breeze. Natures celebration of wedded bliss! Personally, I got married on a very cold November day, where nature provided stunning yellows, reds and golds as confetti for us - as autumn leaves fell.... ahhhh, what a lovely day it was. I thought it would be lovely to show you some of the beautiful hand crafted items from Folksy Artisans that would make any wedding complete, from jewellery, to gifts for the happy couple. It can all be found on Folksy. Please click on the pictures for direct links to the designers shops..... This gorgeous stole would make a beautiful finishing touch to the dress of any bride or bridesmaid. It has been expertly created by Natalie Ofkants. Wouldn't this make a really unusual and different button hole for the groom or an usher at the wedding?
