Good times

I have a few winners to announce for the Patchwork Please sew along but before I do I wanted to share some happy news.
This weekend my dear brother married his childhood sweetheart. They have one of those rare loves that was always meant to be. They grew up together, fell in love in their early teens and haven't stopped falling in love ever since. All the more reason to celebrate their love with a beautiful wedding :)

One of the things I loved is that they pulled together all their friends and relatives to help them design the entire event. Everything from the invitations, wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses to the flower arrangements, cake, menus...well too much to mention really! It was all done with so much love and care it was simply spectacular!
It was a perfect wedding my heart still overflows with love for you both! xxx

My brother and his wife back when they were five years old.
