When Hubs and I were organising our wedding, I remember being so nervous on the run up to the big day. I’m not one for being the centre of attention anyway, so walking up the aisle in front of so many people was a terrifying thought. It was a difficult day too, as my grandfather had passed away just two days before. He had been ill for a while and we had booked the wedding within a short time, with the hope that he would be there. Unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be and our wedding day will always be a time of sadness and happiness, rolled into one. So when I was approached by GreaterSkies to review one of their star maps, I knew exactly which sky I would want to remember.
The GreaterSkies Star Map process –
Looking through the GreaterSkies website was a real treat. You choose the date, time and location of the sky you’d like to remember. Then you’re presented with an amazingly intricate image of the stars at the exact place and time you chose. The ordering process couldn’t be more simple!
You also have the option to add text at the bottom of the image. Ours states that it’s the sky over our village on the day of our wedding. I get a little sentimental each time I look at it!
Choosing your design –
Not only can you choose your preferred time and location, you can also choose the design that suits you best. I chose the night sky view, which is a predominantly black piece with white text. You can also choose the classic star map with a white background, or maybe their floral design is more up your street. There really is a design to suit everyone, which I think is great if you are giving the star map as a gift. It makes it even more personal.
Your GreaterSkies package –
GreaterSkies offer packages to suit everyone. The package we received is the night sky star map, which comes with a quality aluminium frame. It looks really sleek and has been a real conversation piece since it arrived. If you wanted to frame the print yourself, you can simply purchase the printed map and personalise it yourself. Alternatively you can purchase the download package and print your star map at home. This is a good option if you need your map in double-quick time!
The guys over at GreaterSkies would like to offer one of my lucky readers the chance to win a framed star map worth £118.95! All you have to do is enter using the form below, please do check out the terms and conditions…good luck!
