A friend of mine is getting married next year, and I've been thinking about a wedding gift. I'm almost 21; she'll be the first of my friends to get married, so I'm new at this whole thing. She's having a Celtic-themed wedding (which I'm playing flute in! Yay!) and I'd like to keep with the Celtic theme for her and her husband's gift.
First I thought of some sort of nice engraved champagne flutes, but she mentioned one day how her mother is doing that.
So, I finally thought of something that might be kinda neat. I'm doing a two-part present. Part one, I'm commissioning an excellent composer colleague of mine to write a Celtic wedding dance that I'm going to play, either solo, or a duet with a flutist friend, where we would also incorporate tin whistle and possibly panpipes. I'm going to make another copy of the music and have it nicely framed for them to keep.
The other thing I'd like to get is a custom mirror. I have this idea in my head of a sort of Celtic knotwork pattern, or some sort of intertwined leaves/vines pattern, but I'm also open to suggestions. I'd like it to be made of wood and handcarved for a truly one of a kind gift.
It'll be expensive no doubt, but where can I find someone to make a custom mirror? Any idea?
Sorry for the ramble!
