Diamond wedding anniversary

Diamond anniversary. Sixty years. SIXTY.

This portrait is simpler than Pearl Anniversary and Ruby Anniversary, but is still loaded with sentiment. Any details about a couple’s relationship helps to bring it alive. For example, my grandpop Frederick is a bit of a wind up merchant and my nan Phyllis keeps him in check. This is mirrored in their poses and the way they’re looking at each other. I incorporated the diamond motif through the border, which surrounds their personalised wedding vows.
