brooch bouquet

Wedding of Ruth Payne and Thomas Gibbins

Ben Fones Photography Ruth Payne Liam Payne

In June 2016 I had the pleasure of creating the bouquets, buttonholes and button wand for the wedding of Ruth and Thomas.  Ruth is sister to Liam Payne of One Direction fame so you can imagine how excited I was to work with her.  

Ruth said her theme was daisies and butterflies and I had free reign with designing her bouquet. Royal Blue was the main colour and Ruth's dress was ivory so I combined these colours along with a little yellow which I added to the paper daisies which made up her bridesmaids bouquets and also the buttonholes.

Here are some photos of her day and of the bouquet I created for her.  You can read more about it over in the "Press" section.

Nicola & Daryl - I Heart Buttons

Nicola first got in touch via email as she was interested in having a button bouquet for her wedding.  The National Wedding Show at Olympia was fast approaching, (where I had a stand) and I asked if Nicola and Daryl would like to come along and see my work first hand (as when you exhibit at the NWS, you receive a few free tickets).

They travelled all the way from Leicester to London to come and see my work and to have a great day out at the Show.

For Nicola's wedding (which was in February 2016), Nicola asked for a simple, no fuss button bouquet using plain buttons in a mix of black/white and grey/silver.  Daryl had a matching buttonhole made from all buttons, to tie in with Nicola's bouquet.  Her bridesmaids had matching paper flower bouquets and the groomsmen also had paper flower buttonholes.  

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Nicola on her order.  Once she had received everything in the post, she sent me this email: 

"Just to let you know, we've received the bouquets! They are AMAZING! I can't wait to show them off to everyone on the day! (They are a massive secret at the moment) they are such good quality and better than I could have ever imagined!
Thank you again so much! After the big day I will be singing your praises on every social media platform going! Such brilliant service, I can't recommend you to others enough  
Thank you thank you thank you
Nicola "

 Fast forward over a year  later I have today received the most stunning photos from Nicola and Daryl.  The photos were taken by Sarah Solotti Photography (

New to I Heart Buttons....

Beautiful Brooch bouquets!!  We are pleased to announce we are taking orders for full brooch bouquets.  We can use new brooches and vintage brooches.  If you have any sentimental brooches you would like incorporated you are more than welcome to send them to us for inclusion.This gorgeous brooch bouquet was our first and made for my gorgeous bride Fallon. Fallon sent me offcuts from her wedding dress which I made into ribbon and used on the stem.  She also sent me the appliques from the offcuts which I made into leaves for the collar of the bouquet.  It was a ball of sparkles and received a lot of attention in the boutique when I was making it.  Fallon also had one of our solid silver date tags attached to the underside of the bouquet which read 10/4/16.

I can't wait to see her wedding photos which I will share with you when I have them.  If you are interested in having a brooch bouquet made by I Heart Buttons, do get in touch :)
