Des mariages magiques: Le mariage druidique http://saskiashutt.com/englishblog.php?d=20

S'il est une manière de se marier pleine de magie, c'est bien le mariage celtique, ou druidique.  Les voeux se renouvellent chaque année, au pied d'un bel arbre choisi par le druide et les époux.

Une cérémonie pleine de féerie...  Un échange de voeux sous le symbole de la nature, et baigné des 4 éléments.  Ici, tout est permis pour coller au thème...

Une création de KRYZALIDEA

Une robe elfique, médiévale... un costume pour monsieur digne du "seigneur des anneaux", ou de "braveheart". C'est ici que le sur-mesure vous permettra de vivre un réel conte de fée! Le vôtre!

De la soie sauvage, des voilage...du lin... les étoffes les plus nobles prendront tout leur sens. Vous pourrez mettre dans votre livre d'or la préparation de votre robe, et de votre costumes...Les échantillons de tissus, les dessins préparatoires... les photos des essayages.

Des idées pour la salle: Une ouverture de repas festif pourrait commencer par des cracheurs de feux... si vous optez pour un cochon grillé par exemple, ils pourraient même allumer les fourneaux.

Tables décorées de lierres, symbole d'une union forte, menus sur feuilles parcheminées (toutes prêtes, ou imbibées de café fort, et brûlées sur les bords), menu médiéval présentés sur tranches de bois... fruits secs dispersés sur les tables...

Des idées pour la cérémonie: Le rituel des rubans: 13 rubans de couleurs sont noués autour des mains des mariés. Chaque couleur symbolise quelque chose comme la fidélité, l'amour, la fertilitéetc. 

Des idées pour occuper les enfants: Pour distraire les enfants, munissez vous d'une bonne compagnie médiévale, ou d'une organisation de jeu de rôle grandeur nature..; Après une bonne arène en toute sécurité, avec des armes en mousse et latex, ils seront très sages au moment de passer à table ;) Il reste aussi l'idée très basique du château gonflable en forme de château fort.

Des idées pour la soirée: Encore ici, misez sur l'originalité! Certains groupes de musique pagan/folk ou médiévale, celtique, peuvent louer leurs services pour vous faire un concert. On peut aussi se louer les services d'un joueur de cornemuse, d'un(e) harpiste... Et pour cloturer, un lâcher de lanternes en papier! 

Des idées pour les cadeaux des invités: Des savons artisanaux ornés de runes, des cartes postales avec une création d'un artiste peintre, à la manière enluminure médiévale, avec le portrait des mariés.

Des idées pour le livre d'or: un livre d'or personnalisé en cuir, aux symbole du couple          

Une création signée "Belfeuil" Dans lequel tous vos invités pourront inscrire tous leurs voeux à l'aide d'une belle plume et d'encre 

Une création de Saskia Shutt

Des idées pour les alliances: Alliances en forme de torque, ou ornées de feuilles de lierre... ici encor, un artisan y mettra tout son coeur, et donnera une âme à vos alliances.

Si vous voulez ajouter vos géniales idées à cet article, n'hésitez pas à le commenter!

A bientot, pour un nouveau thème mariage.

Maud, Kryzalidea

Result of the Dag van de ambachten/Journée de l'Artisan http://saskiashutt.com/englishblog.php?d=11 Sunday was a very successful day dispite the minus temperature and the icy roads... People, all over the country, braved the cold and visited the open workshops and studios of the participating craftsmen.

My workshop was bussling with visitors and enthousiasts... I even had a fellow jeweller come and chat to me and see how I work and what I do, personally, I thought it was quite a compliment that he came to see me work and I am now a bit gutted that the demonstrations I provided were pretty basic. Although, if I think about it, giving more intricate and advanced demonstrations with 10to 15 people crowding round you to watch what you are doing, would be very difficult to concentrate on the work at hand.

My fellow designer, shoemaker, Natalie van Lijsebettens, also had and increadibly busy day on Sunday and she was also visited by Atv, the local Antwerp tv station! She was intervieuwed for the local news that evening...

I hope that people enjoy visiting my workshop and will venture back for commissions. There were various people who tried on my jewellery that I had on display in my workshop...

Symbolism... rings... sanctity of marriage & unity... http://saskiashutt.com/englishblog.php?d=9 Saskia Shutt Jewellery recently made a pair of wedding rings made from one piece.... 

Customers who stepped into the union of marrige on the 8 May 2011 and they wanted the figure 8 to play a major part on the marriage day.  They picked the number 8 as a symbol, a sign for unity, the never-ending figure.

The symbolism went even further than the figure 8... The rings were also made from old jewellery from both his and her personal collection, which was melted down together, in Saskia’s workshop.   After the silver was all melted down, it was milled into a long strip of silver sheet which was then turned up into the first ring and after it was soldered the second ring was made to complete the figure of 8.

                        

The rings were then sawn in two and bride and groom presented each other with their halves.... the unity was completed

                                           

"8 is the number of unity... 8 is a knot which ties the unity... 8 is a loop which mirrors itself... 8 is the number made of 2 halve to create a whole"
