Is there someone special missing at your wedding?
Weddings are supposed to be happy occasions, but for some of us they are tinged with sadness at the absence of a loved one. This can be so painful, and an event like this can highlight your loss even more. I am guessing that if you are reading this, that you have lost someone significant to you and if so, please accept my sincere condolences.
It can be a real comfort to remember and include them in a special way at your wedding. Some couples like to display a photo of their loved one, which can be a nice idea. However, if you would prefer something more personal and not quite so public , I could help you create a personal memorial by hand painting a bespoke pair of wedding shoes or a tie, which best represents your loved one. It also helps, as it gives you something positive to focus on. Instead of thinking about the absence of them, you can think of them and your special tribute and this way a part of them will be with you every step of your day.
Your shoes or tie could be personalised with words or pictures of your choice, for example, a name, a line from a favourite poem or a favourite flower. If finding white feathers or seeing a butterfly has special significance to you, then this would a nice element to include. Your tribute can be visible or small, so only you know its there.
