My Bridal Bouquet

Documenting the creation of my handful of memories

The Hay Family June 26, 2010

There’s something about this big flower that makes me think of the old Hollywood glamour  – of posh hotels and fancy cocktails; I think it will bring a little sophistication to my bouquet. The colourful ribbon and the sparkly shine of the other two brooches will be treasured, as well.

These lovely pieces of artwork are courtesy of Lillian (Hay) MacKeigan of Sydney Mines. They belonged to her sister, Mary, and their mother, Irene (Wells) Hay, who moved to Sydney Mines from Wales as a young girl. They found their way to my bouquet through Eleanor (Sexton) Marks, my step-mother’s aunt, who has been incredible to me in searching out pieces for my bouquet. I can’t thank you enough, Eleanor, and I’ll be sure to send you lots of photos of the finished product to share with everyone who gave so generously!
