A wedding is the joining together of two families and the continuation of the family line to the next generation. It's a theme that I haven't found in a lot of the designs of wedding invitations most are what I consider to be "corny", with lots of love hearts and other "stock" illustrations.

When I got married I felt that it was important to highlight both of our families because they are the people who have supported us the most in our lives.

The tree is a great visual representation, the roots give it strength and it bears fruit. I chose to symbolise each family member as a owl, family members who are no longer alive have their eyes closed and younger members of the family are still in the nest. It's a very personal design and each one is unique in it's own way.
