I’m sure you all know by now I love commissions that involves creating a wedding peg doll or two!
So when my business friend Stacey, the amazing clay artist behind Stacey’s World, got in touch to ask if I could make her a special wedding gift she got a big thumbs up from me. Her friends had recently got married, enjoying a dream destination wedding. With this in mind I knew this would be a fun wedding peg doll set to work on!
It was particularly refreshing to work on a totally different style of groom outfit to normal. A light and fresh linen waistcoat and trousers and white shirt pairing was different to the usual navy or grey suits I work on.
The bride was photographed wearing a really light and elegant dress. Its’ simplicity was perfect for all that sunshine and heat I bet! She also had a gorgeous bunch of colourful gerberas. Such happy and bright flowers!
There were lots of lovely details that really helped me to personalise her wedding peg doll. The bride wore quite distinctive glasses, which always helps. In addition to this, she had a beautiful sparkly tiara which was lovely to recreate. She also was wearing pearl and crystal necklace, and a pearl bracelet and earrings set. Any opportunity to bust out my specialised pearl and crystal finishes is a great one in my books!
Just look how sparkly they are on her little wooden peg doll:
It really was a lovely commission to work on. It was refreshing to create the peg dolls as a gift AFTER the wedding day and to be able to work from such lovely, happy photos!
Congratulations to the lovely couple! Big thank you to them too for allowing me to share the photos of their very special day that I worked from, here on my blog.
