I'm often asked by brides and grooms whether I had a button bouquet for my own wedding. The answer? Of course I did! And did I make it myself? Yes (and I was my own worst customer at making decisions!)
So on a very cold Decembers day of 2011 Scott and I Were married. Haywood Jones was our photographer and here I will share some of the lovely images she took.
We chose Southfarm as we felt it lent itself well to a winters wedding. With a festive feel to the venue and my red shoes, this became the key colour for my bouquet.
An eclectic mix of red vintage buttons were combined with peal accents and a large central snowflake brooch that matched my What Katy Did Next headband. The bouquet was set upon a rich ivory lace ruffle collar with the handle bound in soft ivory velvet ribbon. I featured some sentimental items in my bouquet too as a special way to remember loved ones no longer with us.
With a matching bouquet for my daughter, mini bouquets for flower girls, buttonholes for the wedding party and wrist corsages for the bridesmaids I was pretty busy in the run up to the wedding! All worth it though and great gifts for close family and friends.
I now keep my bouquet in a pretty vintage coffee pot on the mantle piece, a lovely reminder of our wedding day. Thank you Bethan for your wonderful photography!
