This design and textile works was created for the wedding of Jonathon Roberts and Emily Clare Zempel. It depicts two people as vines around the tree of Christ, an expression of love that was special to the couple as they began this journey together.

These concepts were also expressed in the hymn, Two Vines Round a Tree, written by the couple, and this carved rendering of the design by John Roberts. The design, textile hanging, hymn, and carving were all part of the wedding celebration.
