I think I want to start a new series which will follow on to my new website.
The series will be called "one day...."
The basic premise being...
One day - things will be different - I will have my own home with Bean and I will be able to to begin to enjoy life and indulge my creative eye more. I may not be the most creatively able but I sure know good style. (Yes - check me out being complimentary about myself - but I'm right, right?)
One of the first ideas will be to do something like this with our wedding photographs.* I love the idea of the frame telling the story. I have to admit I do not like the idea of one picture being blown up but I adore the idea of story boarding the day. I guess I do not love the idea of one photograph of me being blown up and displayed - my sister has a gorgeous canvas wrap of her wedding which is so elegant. If you have "the one" then you really should. It is a wonderful reminder of something so special. I really hope you have "the one."
I just think this would be one of the most beautiful ways of "discretely" telling the story of your wedding without it languishing in an album. I say discretely because it feels to me that you wouldn't necessarily know it was someone's wedding at glance (oh and in the picture above it's not!). It's not boom pow here we are in our wedding finery this is the only picture we want you to see. It slightly more intriguing than that. Although I sort of get that it does seem a little "look at me, look at me" but I guess one could always change the photographs as life moves on to perhaps, "once a year on our wedding anniversary if we lived for another 120 years" or something a little more frequent.
What do you think? Do you like or think it seems a little too indulgent. A little indulgence is wonderful thing in my rather humble opinion.
*I'm ashamed to say our photographs still languish on my hard drive. I wish I could work out what to do with them. I wish I could love them the way others really love them.
