A unique and beautiful wedding gift idea – Bestroke

While so many couples are asking for donations to honeymoons or charities instead of wedding gifts, it can be tricky to find a special wedding gift they’ll treasure and remember you by. So when Daniel from Bestroke got in touch, I was fascinated and delighted to discover their beautiful concept. This is so much more than a unique wedding gift; English Wedding Directory member Bestroke works alongside master calligraphers in China who will create something incredibly special, just for you.

At Bestroke, we commission Chinese calligraphy artwork, each hand-painted and mounted on silk scrolls by our master artists in China.

Our Bespoke Wedding Gift Scroll is a made-to-order piece that features a traditional four character wedding blessing in Chinese. 

There are ten beautiful proverbs to choose from, so guests can pick the blessing that they feel best suits the wedding partners. The blessings range from the romantic and succinct Chinese equivalent of ‘a match made in heaven’, to others that convey a more eastern philosophy, such as ‘as harmonious as fish in water’.

Aside from the blessing, the artwork will also feature the given names of the wedding partners translated into Chinese characters. And so not only will your loved ones enjoy giving a truly personalized and thoughtful gift, but giving the gift of an original art work means the wedding partners will be able to cherish and appreciate it for years to come.
