The embroidery is based on the flowers that formed the central part of the decorations on a wedding day.
Many flowers have an underlying meaning associated with them and a Calla Lily represents beauty. The beauty of the wedding ceremony will be a lasting memory.
The lilies are encompassed with gold thread just as the love of one encompasses the other giving support and protection.
The background is filled with stars. Those in the ‘sky’ are the dreams they have for the future and those on ‘the ground’ form the sturdy foundation of the marriage.
A photograph of the wedding flowers has been gently swirled to merge the different shapes together and then printed onto a fine silk fabric to form the basis of the embroidery. As time goes on life’s experiences will gently change the couple as they form their new partnership together.
