Almost a year ago, I was contact by a fellow blogger, Emily, who blogs over at Emily’s Vintage Visions.
She asked me whether I would be able to make some of my felt corsages to be used as buttonholes for her wedding!
I was honoured, and a little overwhelmed, as well as nervous, as I’d never done anything like it before, but I needn’t have been concerned, because Emily was an absolute pleasure to work for.
The theme for the wedding was 1930’s/1940’s vintage. Emily chose the colours she wanted, to match the wedding bouquets she was so cleverly making herself, and I set to work on some posy designs using original 1940’s patterns, the end result being these beautiful, bright posies.
For some reason, I didn’t get any proper photographs of the posies before they left England, bound for America, so please excuse the over bright photograph which was taken at night, using my phone!
I posted the package off in May, and was thankful that it arrived safely, but I thought nothing of my little creations until I received a happy email last month to tell me that the wedding had been a huge success, and that my corsages had gone down very well.
Emily kindly sent me these photographs, taken by Kris Jarrett Phtography and Media Productions, so I could show how they looked on her special day. You can read Emily’s blog post about her beautiful day by clicking here.
Congratulations Emily and Cori! x
