Over the last couple of weeks I’ve started to see the humble paper crane take centre stage at some stunningly beautiful weddings. Reading a little bit more in to it, an ancient Japanese legend promises that the person who folds a thousand paper cranes is granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from an illness.
Although traditionally given as a wedding gift from the father, the couple who make a thousand cranes together can wish for a life time of happiness and prosperity… sounds pretty damn romantic to me.
And it looks pretty good too.
A riot of colour and pattern like the image above makes for a spectacular display.
But keeping it white and pure is equally as striking.
Hanging from trees they make a sweet and meaningful alternative to streamers…
…whilst an installation such as this can add drama and spectacle.
