across the atlantic | the contribution I made to a Canadian stranger’s wedding

Oh, Internet, what a funny one you are.  Sometimes I hate you and think life would be a whole lot simpler if you just never existed in the first place.  Social media is often maligned, with good reason.  But most of the time I’m incredibly addicted to you (aren’t we all?) and don’t know what I’d do without you.  Often you make me smile to see how much good can be done in the world just with our clicks and messages.  The connections you enable are heartwarming, but it’s heart wrenching to see how you help us tear others down.

That got a bit emotional, didn’t it?


What I meant to show you is this beautiful lady’s beautiful wedding.  Jennifer and I have never met, didn’t know of each others’ existence until a couple of months ago, and live on opposite sides of the Atlantic.  And she wore my cardigan on her wedding day.  Pretty cool, no?

I’ll explain a little – Jennifer wanted a soft blue cardigan to keep her cosy in the evening.  Still searching unsuccessfully with wedding day looming, she came across this cardigan of mine, and dropped me an email.  The cardigan was in the post on its way to Dorset the next day, to be taken to Canada by her friend. 🙂  Power of the internet, eh?  My little cardigan, made by my mum, keeping a bride warm on her special day.  So sweet!  Hey, at least my cardigan’s been to Canada, even if I haven’t.  I thought I’d share a few of their shots – everything about the wedding and photography is stunning and the ballet cardigan looks like it was made for the occasion.  Go check out her blog post here.







So there’s a nice happy story to stem from strangers talking on the internet.  Best wishes to Jennifer, Hugh and family!

Here’s the original post with my cardigan, looking a whole lot less romantic than in a backyard wedding. 🙂

      Me too! Such a random thing to happen but I love it. What are the chances that my cardigan would be so perfect?
