Celebrity Silver Weddings - 2012

February 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 274

Finding celebrities who are celebrating a silver wedding anniversary becomes increasingly difficult with each passing year. Many famous couples married in 1987, but unfortunately, many of these marriages fail to survive the 25-year qualification period for a silver wedding.

However, couples that so make it usually celebrate their silver wedding by exchanging silver gifts and if you are invited to a silver wedding celebration, it is customary to present the couple with a silver wedding gift.

The practice is believed to have originated in Central Europe during medieval times when friends presented a wreath or garland of silver flowers to the wife. The flowers would not have been real silver, but white and silver coloured flowers. The colour silver was chosen because it symbolises harmony.

One celebrity silver wedding anniversary has already taken place this year:

18th January 1987 Musician Steve Winwood and Eugenia Crafton. Stevie Winwood made his name in the Spencer Davies Group before going on to be a member of Traffic. Shortly after marrying Eugenia Crafton he released the best-selling album "Back in the High Life" which won him two Grammies. The album featured the hit single, "Bring Me a Higher Love" - inspired by his new wife.

Hera a few more of the soon to be happy couples:

21st March 1987 Darts Commentator Bobby George and his wife and manager Marie.August 1987, BBC Journalist and Broadcaster Andrew Marr and Jackie Ashley of The Guardian11th October 1987 Musician Joe Cocker and Pam BakerDate Unknown 1987: Creative genius and chief designer at Apple, Sir Jonathan Paul "Jony" Ive and Heather Pegg

If you are searching for a unique silver gift for a couple, you can easily achieve this by selecting a silver gift and having it engraved with a personalised message. This might simply be their names and their anniversary date, but you can also choose appropriate words from poems, song titles or aspects of their life. By this stage of their life most couples will have accumulated the household goods that are often given as gifts when first married, so the giving of a luxury gift will be more appropriate and much appreciated.

During 2012 the hallmark applied to silver items assayed in London will include a commemorative mark that celebrates the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II - so your gift will mark 60-years of her reign as well as 25-years of marriage.

Stewart Hersey is a Silversmith and makes handmade silver gifts at his workshop in London. You can find a selection of his Silver Wedding Anniversary Presents at his website
