Melissa approached me because she wanted a completely non-floral wedding with keepsake bouquets.
Melissa had decided on a colour scheme of white, black and red and wanted to include the British Heart Foundation pins that they gave to each guest within the bouquets and buttonholes.
Melissa's dress was stunning and the ruffled shoulder provided the inspiration for the style of her heart shaped bridal bouquet.
I continued the line of the ruffle down one side of the heart using scarlet double-faced satin ribbon and chiffon with British Heart Foundation pins nestled into the ruffles.
The other side of the heart was made using a vine of cultured pearls, Swarovski crystals and red crystal hearts to echo the detail of Melissa's dress and accessories.
Melissa asked for a mini version of her bouquet for their daughter who looked precious in a matching dress.
I designed this as a pomander to make it easier for little hands to hold.
The other bridesmaids wore striking black and red dresses.
Their bouquets were made using black ribbons in the same style as the Bridal bouquet.
Black jet beads were used instead of pearls.
The wedding party looked stunning and perfect for a Valentine's Day ceremony.
The buttonholes also used the British Heart Foundations pins at the centre with an outer ribbon heart to echo the style of the bouquets.
A child-safe version was worn by Melissa and David's handsome son.
It was a joy to design and make something so individual and unusual for this striking wedding.
