Vintage Brooch Bouquets Ireland

Heirloom Brooch Bouquets

I really thought it was about time I wrote a little something about these heirloom bouquets that I've been making over the past year.  I've really enjoyed designing these heirloom bouquets over the past while and love the fact that they're all so original and can be made to suit a bride on any budget.  How lovely to have a bouquet to have and hold forever and pass down the generations!  I love when a bride sends me personal pieces of jewellery that are of sentimental value which adds a very personal touch to her wedding attire.  There are so many different elements to the bouquets....each piece is hand wired onto a stem and Swarovski crystals, pearls and ribbon flowers added to give it texture and shape.  
Brides are coming up with ingenious ways of collection pieces from getting the Moms to send out an SOS to friends and family members for 'donations' for the bouquet to having a 'girlie' night where all the friends are invited for a few drinks and asked to bring a piece for the bouquet. Of course though I can design the whole bouquet from pieces I have in my treasure chest!  New pieces for bridesmaids, flowergirls and even buttonholes will be revealed in my next blog.
One of my brides mentioned that she didn't get her bouquet back for the whole reception as it was passed from person to person and table to table with guests checking out her bouquet!  It certainly is a talking point!  
I've been delighted this year to have my bouquets featured on several publications and  blogs both here in Ireland and abroad.  It's going to take another blog to cover everything and unveil my new collection but for now heres a few of my favourites from this past year!  More to follow soon xx
