For this shoot not only did I loan button creations but I also loaned my own two kids, Molly and Jack, as a little bridesmaid and page boy. It was such a fun day and I love that I can share this excitement of my business with my children.
For this particular shoot pastels, tea parties and a vintage twist were the themes of the day. I created my Flower and Lace bouquet using heaps of soft pastel vintage buttons in creamy yellows, baby pinks and powdery blues and nestled amongst the buttons were some gorgeous floral china brooches which I adore to work with. The collar for this bouquet is a pale yellow with cream lace overlay petal style and the handle is bound in thick baby blue ribbon.
I must have a special mention to the fabulous cake designer Elizabeth at Elizabeth's Cake Emporium
. The cake, designed around the idea of vintage buttons co-odinates perfectly with one of my pastel button bouquets!
Below are some more of the range created for this shoot, featuring my love heart button wand, pomander ball and sweetie influenced buttonhole. For a look at all the gorgeous images you can head on over to Whimiscal Wonderland Weddings
which, excitingly, featured the whole shoot! :)
