Lim week 87 Love & marriage

Hi everyone, sun's shining but is it me or is it freezing!

I have managed a couple of Lim cards for Love and Marriage challenge!
I have used A5 cards
Marianne dies on the first one and stamp sentiment is from Circa Design.
I bought all of the stamps at Doncaster a while ago and this is their first ionking. I'm not sure who made the Bride & groom as they were a cheap set with no name on.
