My friend got married at the weekend.
For her wedding day, she asked me to create a paper floral headpiece, incorporating some of her favourite flowers. As her and her fiance were getting married in a place called 'The Garden Station', (a restored Victorian railway station in a woodland garden), it seemed apt to include some of the wild flowers in bloom there.
(Forget-me-nots, Buttercups, California poppies and Aquilegia sugar plum fairy)
(A paper-cut light box of 'The Garden Station').
