Wedding Day Memories: 6 ideas to capture

Wedding Day Memories: 6 ideas to capture

Would you like to create tangible memories of your wedding?

Weddings – big or small, traditional or wacky, lavishly extravagant or cosy & intimate – it is a day to be remembered. However you choose to celebrate, your wedding day should be filled with Impressive Memories.

With months (possibly years) of planning, and an enormous amount of work and effort you think you have covered every possible idea to make your day absolutely perfect. No doubt you’ve spent evenings knee deep in Pinterest boards, dreaming of your perfect day.

Because let’s face it…none of us want our day to be bland or predictable. Nobody wants peach silk bridesmaids, do they? Everyone wants to have the wow factor and for their day to be remembered as being spectacular.

Fear not!! I can help you create 6 ideas that absolutely nobody else can replicate. Guaranteed to be as unique as the couple who are tying the knot…

Here are 6 personalised memories for you to incorporate into your wedding day celebrations.

#1 Bride & Groom Hand Cast

To have and to hold 

Why not create a completely personal work of art with a 3d hand cast incorporating those all-important wedding rings? You can organise this yourself or why not suggest that friends and family contribute to buy you this as a totally unique wedding gift?

Hand casting for couples starts from £135. A little bit more if you’d like to include ornate rings with stone settings.

This beautiful example was created by a couple who were first married in Serbia (the grooms home), then had a second wedding here in Fife (the brides home). The newlyweds visited my studio (between weddings) and the plan was for the cast to be hand delivered, by the father of the bride, on his next journey to Serbia.

#2 Wedding Cufflinks for the Groom

From this day forward

What more could a Groom ask for on his wedding day than to wear personalised cufflinks created from his very own son or daughter? 

Travis made these for his Daddy as a surprise gift on the morning of his mummy and daddy’s wedding day. It was quick, clean and simple for Travis to pop to my studio and have his prints taken, but means the absolute world to his parents to have their son at their wedding. Now his little hand and footprints are captured for a lifetime at the moment of such an impressive event.

I decided to get my husband a gift for our wedding day, personalised cufflinks with my son’s hand and footprint, however, I had left it a bit late for timing but Jen made sure they would be ready on time! Her studio is beautiful! I almost cried each time I received my items from her. I cannot thank her enough and urge people to have a look on her site! She is amazing at what she does, I can’t wait to be back in her studio again one day!

#3 Your Wedding Dress on a Silver Pandora Charm

For better, for worse

Would you like to wear your wedding dress every day? Well, you can’t…because you’d look like an idiot. Imagine going on the school run wearing your wedding dress? Nipping around the supermarket? It’s not gonna happen is it?

But you could have a silver charm made with an impression of your wedding dress. You could wear it on your Pandora bracelet, on a pendant or maybe a ring? Then you COULD wear it everyday…impressive!

These aren’t in my online shop at the moment, drop me a message and I’ll help you order this charm today.

#4 Your Wedding Bouquet in a handmade silver charm

For richer, for poorer

Flowers make your wedding day bloom…ing lovely! I adore fresh flowers and, for me, they are a hugely important part any special occasion. Sadly though, flowers don’t last long – but jewellery can last a lifetime.

Do you have a favourite flower? My personal favourite flower is a lily, which is why I adore making silver fingerprint lilies.

Created from a love heart of silver and gently rolled into a lily, they have the fingerprint impression of a loved one tucked inside. It could be a guest who lived too far away and was unable to attend your wedding. Or a loved one no longer with us. Whoever you choose.

I recently made a pair of fingerprint lily earrings for a lovely lady. She was delighted with them and I think they will be a popular choice for everyone.

Maggie Gray

A truly professional job by a very caring lady. I can’t thank her enough for all her help during a very difficult time for me. I am absolutely delighted with my gorgeous items, they are unique and stunning. I definitely recommend entrusting Jen with your priceless memories. She will give you all the help and advice you want.

#5 Wedding Guest Fingerprint Plate

In sickness and in health

When you’re planning a wedding you also have to plan who will share your special day.

It might be that some guests are ill and don’t manage to spend the day with you as they’d planned. They could still be part of capturing a memory by having them create a fingerprint tree of family and friends.

They will love being part of your wedding family tree!

Each guest can add a leaf with their fingerprint and even leave a signature or a message for you both.

#6 Honouring a deceased loved one at your wedding

Until death do us part.

Your wedding day is a celebration surrounded by loved ones, sadly we may have relatives and friends who’ve passed away and can’t be there for your big day. That doesn’t mean they can’t still be part of your celebration – there are a few ways you can incorporate them into your special occasion.

I offer a range of jewellery that incorporates locks of hair, cremation ashes, fingerprints and handwriting and signatures. You can find out more about Memorial memories in a blog that I wrote here.

Conclusion

These are just 6 ideas to let you see how to make your wedding as unique as you are.

If you have a question about any of the items shown here or you’re left wondering…

Who can help bring my ideas to reality?

The answer is…

“I do”

And you don’t even need to get down on one knee to ask me.

Reframing Baby Hand & Foot Casts

Reframing Baby Hand & Foot Casts

Can I have my baby lifecasts reframed?

When you have casts taken and you choose a frame, it doesn’t have to stay like that forever.

  • Maybe you’ve moved house
  • Your decor has changed
  • You just fancy a change
  • Have you had a new baby and would like to update your original casts to match your new addition? No problem at all.

Another reason for reframing might be because your original frame has been damaged, or the glass may have got broken – accidents happen. (If your casts also get damaged I can help repair these too…scroll down for more information)

Standard Reframing

Offering an affordable frame that complements your casts.

Standard Single Aperture Reframing £25

Choose to reframe your casts in a standard single aperture black frame with an engraved name plaque.  £25

Can my casts be repainted?

If they are damaged I can repair the damage and repaint so it is virtually invisible. I cannot change the finish without losing the original detail.

Do I have to have the same size as original frame?

Nope.  You can change the size, style, layout…you choose x

I'd like to chat to you first, can I do that?

Of course.  Get in touch HERE or text or call 07837800353 Happy to have a chat and explain all the options available.

“Nothing’s ever quite as sweet as little tiny baby feet”

If you originally chose a single aperture frame, maybe now you’d like to upgrade to a triple aperture.

Do you prefer a touch of luxury in life?

These frames are handmade to order, they are of a superior quality material, and the finish sets off your very impressive casts perfectly.

I'd like a style that I don't see here - can you help?

Probably yes.  Always welcome to get in touch and I’m happy to help create a bespoke frame for you.

HELP!! MY CASTS ARE DAMAGED...

Oh Dear!! Accidents can happen…

If your casts become damaged I can usually fix it. PLEASE DON’T PANIC…

If any part is broken or chipped off, keep it safe.  Make a booking with me and return your casts to me and I will do what I can to repair them.  Depending on the amount of work & time involved will determine what charge there is.  Please do not attempt to fix them yourself as this can often result in making it more difficult for me to then properly fix.  Ask first…send me photos…I’m happy to advise and help.

If broken glass is involved please remove the casts from any broken glass before bringing them to me.  Talk to me before you attempt to do this.

Hope that Helps

There are loads of options for you to choose from when it comes to reframing your casts, whether through choice or necessity…I’m happy to create any of the options you see here or equally happy to discuss something unique just for you.

Look forward to speaking to you again soon, have an impressive day!

Online Shop: What’s changed and why?

Online Shop: What’s changed and why?

Online Shop: What's changed and why?

I’ve been having a spring clean! I’d had so many people asking where to find this, that and the other and my answer was ‘that’s in my online shop’… the only problem was…finding it!

I have spent this week dusting and hoovering all the categories, polishing the photos and making everything much brighter, cheerier and easier to use – I hope you agree.

Here’s a quick video to show you what I’ve been up to…

Shop Categories

I’ve now arranged the items into categories that are customer friendly…

  • Fingerprint Jewellery
  • Hand & Footprint Jewellery
  • Memorial Jewellery
  • Pet Inspired Jewellery

These are the four most visited categories.

Then I’ve added new sections for ‘Locks of Hair‘ jewellery and Gift Ideas for mums and one for dads too.

If you’d like a necklace or bracelet to go with your impressive jewellery they’re all there, as well as spare kits and gift vouchers too.

What if you don’t know what you’re looking for?

Maybe you need some inspiration to find a gift, or just enjoy browsing lots of new ideas? You can do that too…all the items are listed as well as being in their categories…

How do I get back to the main shop page?

The easiest method is to go back to the original ‘Online Shop’ button at the top of the page.

What’s New?

I’ve added two new locket designs – one encapsulates your elements on the outside and the other has then tucked safely inside. A new engraving option has also been added.

There’s a new range of pendant charms. More sizes will be added soon but this dinky charm is so easy to wear. Very impressive.

A new item for the Dads is the tie pin. Great for special occasions where maybe a lost one can’t be with you on a special day, but their memory can.

All can hold locks of hair, cremation ashes or a maybe a piece of pet fur.

Signature & Handwritten Charms

Finally added my Signature and Handwriting charms online too. These charms are a great choice to capture a memory of a loved one…their very own message written just for you.

Coming Soon!

There’s more to come…Keep an eye out for two new earring designs…I can’t wait to add these to the shop too…so pretty.
