Inspiration from Colombian Artisans

Our wedding will be held September 2013 on the beach of North Colombia by Caribbean sea. We will have a lovely private beach in the middle of authentic national park and the party will be held  in a small, intimate ecohotel. The wedding theme is naturally Caribbean style, eco friendly and exotic so i don’t want to bring any plastic decoration items there. Just some flowers, candles and lights. I love exotic eco items and now that we are  thinking about the wedding theme I have been going through typical Colombian artesanal art looking for inspiration for my wedding. I love the prints and the craftsmanship of colombians.

If you have been reading my blog earlier you already know we, finns, we really love natural materials and handmade items. Palm tree leafs are super exciting and ecotic for me because we don’t have palm trees here up north. So surely the palm tree leafs will be the focal point in this wedding!

Here’s some lovely photos of Colombian artisans works. These are a huge inspiration for me making plans for my upcoming wedding.
