When it comes to marriages, I have always had a great example set for me by my mum and dad. There are ups and there are downs, but if you love one another you will always work through it and weather the storm. That's what makes my mum and dads marriage unbreakable. They have always been there for one another and supported each other endlessly.
For their 40th wedding anniversary, I was at a loss as to what to get them. The it hit me - 'A Memory Doll'!
I set about gathering photos from their wedding day all them years ago. Many things had changed about them, my dads hair was now a mouse brown unlike the ginger colour he had as a young man. Their slender 20 year old figures now had a couple of extra pounds that comes with living a good life. Their once smooth faces now show smile and laughter lines from the many happy times we have enjoyed as a family. But the one thing that had not changed was the love in their eyes for one another.
I tried my best to capture my dads red hair and blue three piece suit, My mum's curly brown hair and her elegant long dress with veil. I was really pleased with how they turned out and my parents now have memory dolls to always remind them of their special day.
