For all you people out there, who like me, have lots of friends tying the knot at the moment, I have have a new genius gift idea which you can pretty much give to everyone! Introducing…. my new Wedding Napkins. Custom printed and handmade napkins made using beautiful photographs taken on that special day.
I recently came up with this idea when I was trying to think of something completely unique and different to give to my friends for their wedding gift. I am always that person who thinks that I would rather give something a little more special than just choosing off their registry…specially when you’ve missed all the good things, and all that is left is a paper shredder (go figure??), and/or a cook book of some kind.
Anyways there we were in this beautiful beautiful location on a farm in the middle of nowhere in the Karoo. I think I must have instagrammed alot of pics to try and show everyone just how beautiful this part of our country is, and THAT is when I had the idea to use this beautiful setting to help create a wedding gift that will not only be unique, but unforgettable too.
Instead of using my not so amazing nor good quality instagram pics as I had planned, I got in touch with Shannon Bradfield, official (and brilliant) photographer and groom’s sister, to see if she might be able to let me use some of her beautiful shots. She was totally on board and sent me all high res shots I needed….and voila! A set of 6 beautiful photographs turned into a set of 12 beautiful napkins.
Available in sets of 6 big napkins or 8 smaller napkins. You can pre-purchase a set of Wedding Napkins at my online shop. I will email you an image to print out and give to the lucky couple to let them know about your super awesome and very special gift on the day. They can then put me in touch with their photographer and help choose which images they would like to use, or I can choose for them. I’ll get them printed and made up and will post/courier them straight to the lucky couple’s door!
I am delighted to let you all know that a lovely selection of handmade by me products are now available through The Wedding Gift List, an award-winning online gift registry service as well as through their lovely fresh online shopping portal called Not The Mall.
