We originally created this display of family portraits for our wedding:
I found the frames at a carboot sale and not one of them cost more than 20p. For the wedding I painted the frames green and yellow to match our scheme and hung them on wide white satin ribbons on the wall of the village hall. The photos are of our grandparents, parents and ourselves as littl'uns. We mananged to get wedding photos from Mr Crafty's side of the family although it proved a little tricky to do the same with my more bohemian relations who were less given to conventional nuptuals.
None of our gradparents are still with us so I loved having them on the wall watching over our day and the display was one of my favourite details at the reception. After the wedding I really wanted to give the photos a permanent home so I repainted the frames in white and now our photographic family tree has pride of place on our bedroom wall which means our family, both living and departed, can now watch over us as we sleep.
