In the small welsh town of Llanrwst, a small converted chapel lies in the shadow of the mountain range of Snowdonia, where Les Williams and his small team of traditional craftspeople still patiently pursue the ancient craft of creating beautifully handcrafted love spoons.
Love spoons are the most unique symbol of romance in Britain today.
The tradition of carving and giving love spoons dates back before the 17th century where the curves, squirls, circles and interlaced patterns echo the beliefs of our Celtic forefathers.
Spoons were given as an invitation to begin courtship, and as a present to a couple on their wedding day.
They are also sent by many as a symbol of friendship, caring and good luck. Each symbol carries a particular message.
