This poem was written for the bride by her mum, and the plan was to have it at their wedding day, and for all the guests to sign around it - a great keepsake.
I knew the photo was going to be 8" x 11" so of course left the space, and yet it looked terrible without the photo in place. So a lovely photo of my niece and husband was put to good work!
In fact when the bride came to collect it she brought the photo - it was a beautiful engagement picture of the couple in, I think, dark sepia, and it looked amazing!
I hope they got the piece signed early in the evening, before too much champagne had been consumed and the messages from their guests were still legible and clean!
