Aren’t these darling? My lovely Mum sewed them for us last year. For our wedding, I wanted to have fabric hearts hanging from the backs of all the chairs for decoration, and also for our guests to take home afterwards. You can buy them of course, but they often cost around £5 each in the shops, and besides, they were more personal this way. For Carl and I, she used silk, instead of the floral prints everyone else had, and she embroidered our names on them. Mum also sewed yards and yards of bunting to hang in our reception room; some of the fabric she used she saved from when she used to make my clothes as a baby. Above our bed is a cupboard with three doors; from the centre door hangs a wooden heart which is painted with our names and wedding date, which my mother-in-law gave me. It feels good to go to sleep surrounded by love.
