C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S on your new venture! I'm very excited to cheer you on. :) So here's a request, no timeline attached: recently a photo surfaced of Cesar Domboy and Lauren Lyle, standing together in a grove of trees... how do you feel about putting them in period clothing, perhaps just wed? Or do what you will. Thank you for the consideration. xo
Thank you so much for the request, @andthencamemacdubh, hopefully it will be the first of many!
I think Cesar and Lauren’s obvious enjoyment of their time in South Africa has made us all very excited to see the Fergus/Marsali relationship on screen. And yes I took that photo as my starting point for the picture, and then I went back to the relevant chapter in Voyager, for details of the wedding outfits. Taking inspiration from DG’s description of Marsali’s clothing, but using artistic license too, I gave our bride a beautiful dress but bare feet - I thought that suited her, feeling the sand between her toes as she makes her commitment. And as for Fergus, well there is no mention of his wedding clothing whatsoever in the book, so I went on my instincts: I decided he would be dressed as impressively as he could make himself, as he is so very aware of what he doesn’t bring to this marriage - a left hand, a guaranteed trade, and a last name… ( though, of course, during the ceremony, he acquires one 😀)

And here’s a closer look at their newlywed smiles…
