Their Song Birds

Handmade by a wife for her husband, this fabulous origami crane mobile was indeed a meaningful gift for the couple's first wedding anniversary (traditionally known as the paper anniversary). The couple I'm referring to are Helen and David - the gorgeous couple whose gorgeous swoon-worthy wedding I featured here last year - A Sydney Beach Wedding.

At Helen and David's wedding "The Way You Look Tonight" was the song that played for their first dance as a married couple. To create the cranes Helen used vintage "The Way You Look Tonight" sheet music. Helen also added some vintage glass beads left over from the wedding decorations to the mobile.

Creating the decorations and favours at her wedding reignited Helen's creative side, and she now has her own label of handmade lovelies. Next week I'll be featuring some of the handmade lovelies from Helen's range.

Hope you're all travelling well this week my dears! See you next week! :)
