I was at the Goldney Hall wedding fair, held in September, and met the talented Mike Herbert. Mike specialises in creating hand-cut silhouettes. I thought these looked very Victorian, until it was pointed out that they were popular in the Georgian and Regency times instead. Still, if it’s good enough for Jane Austen and company, it’s good enough for me!
I think these are a wonderful way to entertain guests at a wedding and would make the coolest favours. Each silhouette is made in front of your eyes with room for the name, date, and location, as well as lots of historical facts on the back.
