Villa Parker Wedding Inspiration

My stamps have just been featured in Style Me Pretty's Little Back Book Villa Parker Wedding Inspiration photo shoot.  Unfortunately, you can't really see the stamps in any of the stills featured on the site but you can catch a closer glimpse of them in this video.  The theme of the shoot was Tuscan, slightly rustic with some painted props.  The main color themes were gold and royal blue.  Another inspiration for the shoot was the movie "A Good Year", starring Russell Crowe.  At the request of the event planner, I provided them with a collection of vintage Italian postage stamps to match the wedding theme.  They made a collage of the stamps and framed them (look for a white frame with 3 openings in the video).  The framed collage was then nestled amongst the other rustic props in the reception area.  While normally my wedding customers use vintage stamps as decorations on their invitations and place settings, the idea of framing and displaying stamps that represent a place and/or time that is very special to them is a great idea!  This adds a great personal touch to any occasion and doubles as a fantastic gift!

Here's an example of some beautiful vintage Italian stamps I just added to my shop today.
