Sophie and Will are members of the same running club, and met while they were both training for a triathlon. The squad coach wanted to give them a wedding present that would remind them of how they met, and their shared interest in sport.
So I came up with a design based around the club colours of yellow and red. I included triathlon symbols to represent the swim bike and run, in the club kit. The lovely phrase about cycling / marriage came from their wedding invitation. Their wedding invites also included the luggage tags and an image of a tandem, so I incorporated these into their painting.
Finally I thought the date would make a fantastic ‘finish’ time, although it is also the start of their life together! Congratulations Sophie and Will!
