Love & Blue offers a unique way of preserving treasured wedding keepsakes. Founded by professional artist Angela Chalmers, her passion and training in fine art has led her to develop her ideas into handmade, bespoke mementoes of your special day. Using camera-less photography techniques, Angela uses an old Victorian process called cyanotype to beautifully capture on paper your floral bouquet, veil, tiara, or even an
entire wedding dress. The cyanotype produces an ethereal, life-sized white image of an object floating on a cyan-blue background resulting in a romantic work of art which can be lovingly kept on display forever.
