Ahahaha! That was what I used as well for my wedding - who can resist Mark Knopfler? I absolutely love that you did those pillows, they are PERFECT! I'm sure they will be over the moon to receive them!

BTW, the book about the making of the film by Cary Elwes is *really* fun as well. https://g.co/kgs/eKJy5Q
