Love & Sadness

Today's post is a mixture of happiness and sadness.
This weekend saw myself and hubby attending a very special couples wedding. Now my lack of crafting recently was due to this wedding as I made all the stationary, and on the day the room looked beautiful.
My first ever table plan.....
Favour bags & namecards

The beautiful Mr & Mrs Sutton-Jones
Me & the Groom
Special friends 
It was a beautiful weekend and we stayed overnight and all had breakfast together. I wish them both a lifetime of happiness.
The week was also very sad,
On Thursday a very special lady who I was glad to call my friend lost her 4 year battle with cancer. I had known Rachel for 21 years and she was an inspiration. Tomorrow would have been her first wedding anniversary and I would like to share a picture of that happy day which I was so glad I got to be a part of.

Sending love and wishes to all her family.
The wedding yesterday had lanterns on the lake in memory of the groom's father so I dedicated mine to Rachel.

Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. 
Thank you for reading my post today xxx
