Quaker Wedding Certificates - Floral Arch and Spray Style

With the Floral Arch and Spray style, your certificate is decorated with your choice of flower in an arch across the top of the sheet and an extra spray of flowers in the lower part to separate the text from the signature area, or as a finishing decoration at the bottom of the sheet.

Rebecca and Ruben asked for an extra spray of flowers and to incorporate a wooden cross, sunflowers, daisies, roses, geese and bicycles. These are bicycles from the Neatherlands. The text is lettered in Palomares.


Megan and David wanted an arch and spray design. The flowers they chose were poppies, forget-me-nots, irises, cornflowers, Queen Ann's Lace, black-eyed Susans and daisies. I added some English Ivy at the bottom of the arch. This was done on Stonehenge paper and was approximately 22"x30". Here are some closeups.


Melissa and Kwesi met in Ghana where she was teaching school. For their certificate, they asked for spring flowers and Adinkra symbols. Adinkras are West African symbols that are seen on houses, walls, etc. The one at the top of the arch means unity. The ones at the bottom of the certificate mean wisdom and knowledge (the ones on the left, right and middle) and devotion and patience (the moon and star).

Jennifer and Gregory's certificate is done on ivory paper with yellow roses, lady's mantle, lilies of the valley, sweet peas and chrysanthemums.
