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.

The Walk Down The Aisle.

…it’s that moment – after all the months of planning and the day’s excitement of getting ready, now with all your guests seated – it’s just you and your dad waiting for the music,  your cue to take that very special walk down the aisle together.

It is a special moment indeed for the daughter and her father and not surprising that many brides choose to have a verse on their wedding aisle runner that is dedicated to their dad.

This is the one I’ll remember forever.

Lovely words for any dad to read as he takes that memorable walk with his daughter.

Traditions

It has usually been the father of the bride who walks with her down the aisle to ‘give her away’  but nowadays as life and circumstances change, the bride may choose to walk on her own, or with her mum, both parents, a brother, uncle, son, best friend, or the bride and groom may choose to walk down the aisle together.

Samantha, whose mum was to accompany her down the aisle , had asked us to make a personalised wedding aisle runner with a ‘Mum of all the walks verse’ on it as a surprise for her mum.

Absent Family Members

The wedding ceremony can be an especially emotional time for those couples whose family members – in particular the father of the bride- are no longer here.

Some couples choose to have a photo or some special words on their wedding aisle runner so they can be remembered and still be a part of the ceremony.

Hayley,  whose brother walked her down the aisle, chose to have the words of her father’s favourite song ‘Apple Blossom Time’ on her aisle runner.

Your Own Verse and Photos.

We have just completed a beautiful wedding aisle runner for a bride who wanted to include a lovely photo of herself when she was a little girl holding hands with her daddy as they walked on the beach towards the sea.

She also wrote her own special poem dedicated to him – I will share with you all after her wedding- it is lovely.

To have us create a special wedding aisle runner for you,  simply tell us your ideas, send us your photos and we will do the rest.
