Lovestory Wedding Aisle Runner and Celebration of Life Bunting for Jenny



Like many of our brides to be Jenny messaged us well before her wedding.

She had seen a picture of a Lovestory Timeline Aisle Runner with photos and knew it was just what she wanted for her aisle. So she paid her deposit to secure a place and said she would be in touch nearer the date.

Life does have a habit of getting in the way though and Jenny’s was no different- being a mum, running a home, working and planning and organising your wedding – can be quite a juggling act!

The wedding was getting nearer and as I hadn’t heard from Jenny I sent her a couple of emails just to check she still wanted a runner. Yes she did – and promised she would sort out the photos she wanted on it.

The actual process of designing the Lovestory Aisle Runner can take several weeks – from me receiving the photos, checking the quality and weaving them into a draft design – then to be rearranged and tweaked until the client has a final design that they are really happy with.

But, true to her word, Jenny managed to put some time aside to choose the photos she wanted and sent them to me with dates, names, places and special events.




After sending several drafts and a bit of tweaking between us,  we finally had a design that she loved and we were able to get it printed and sent off to her.

“Our aisle runner has arrived and is so beautiful and perfect. We can’t wait to use it on our special day.  The quality of it is amazing and we’re over the moon with it. Can’t wait to send you some photos!”




A few days after their wedding,  a message from Jenny popped up on my Facebook Page with some lovely photos of Jenny looking amazing, walking down the aisle on her Lovestory Aisle Runner with her Nana and Grandad by her side.

Jenny said-

“We had the most amazing wedding and everyone commented how lovely our aisle runner was.

Sadly, just 3 days after walking me down the aisle, my Grandad went out in his car, had a heart attack and died. We’re beyond heartbroken and struggling to come to terms with what has happened. He was only 70 years young and was the proudest man in the world at our wedding.

So less than a week from getting married we are starting to arrange a Celebration of his life”

Jenny had noticed the Photo Bunting we had started to offer on our website and asked if we would make some to use at her Grandad’s Celebration of Life.

Just when we thought our work was done with Jenny we were now playing a part in her life again. She must have spent hours with her family looking through some lovely photos of her Grandad and she managed to quickly send some to us that we could use for the bunting.



” Thank you so much for our lovely bunting in memory of my amazing Grandad. It was perfectly made and fantastic quality.  My Nana loves looking at it.

I didn’t think we would be ordering from you so soon after our beautiful aisle runner but thank you for rushing our order through in time for his funeral. “

We sincerely thank Jenny for allowing us to share her story – which is also maybe a little reminder to appreciate all the moments we have with family and friends.




A Personal Message On Your Wedding Aisle Runner

The first kiss as Mr & Mrs

As well as helping to create a beautiful entrance to your wedding ceremony, one of the benefits of having one of our personalised aisle runners is that  you can add your own special words, favourite quotes or song lyrics and personal messages.

One of our first aisle runner commissions was from Paddy who wanted to surprise Angela, his bride to be and wrote this verse to her.

Meet The Team Who Make Beautiful Wedding Aisle Runners

….So here is a little bit about us – David and Margaret Ruaux  – the creators at Wedding Aisle Runners.

We started Wedding Aisle Runners four years ago as an antidote to retirement!

After spending many years as a professional photographer and printer, my husband David and myself a retired teacher, are now loving our busy life creating beautiful personalised aisle runners for our clients special day.

I love having the freedom again to use my artistic skills to create our special designs and I know that David’s keen eye and expertise makes sure the designs are printed perfectly.

We are based in Horwich,  Lancashire which is where we were both born and has been our home town for most of our lives.

Time away from Wedding Aisle Runners headquarters is spent taking our cameras and walking amongst the beautiful moorlands and woods of Lancashire – Rivington in particular- along with our Staffie Millie.

Further afield we just love Scarborough and the wonderful North Yorkshire coast.

We have a busy family life with frequent visits from our four grown up children and grandchildren as well as a 95 year old mum to keep our eye on!

As with many businesses now, most of our  customers find us via the internet and as a result we ship our aisle runners to many countries.

It is lovely to know that our aisle runners play such an important part in setting the scene to create a beautiful entrance to the wedding ceremony.

The best thing about making our wedding aisle runners is that, because they are not standard products and need to be personalised, we get to know our clients well and understand what they are looking for, all of which makes our bespoke service even more special.

Here is just one of  the many kind words we get sent to us.
