Continuing our weekend of featuring fabulous vintage suppliers, I’d like you to show some love to L.O.V.E. Bouquets, two lovely ladies based in Manchester, who I think combine the best of old with new, in the form of their beautiful vintage bouquets.
L.O.V.E. Bouquets is owned by Natalie and her mother-in-law Sheila, who decided to go into business after making Natalie’s bouquet for her own wedding in 2009. Natalie says; “I posted pictures of the bouquet on a wedding forum and so many people got in touch to find out about it that we decided there must be a demand.”
The pair admit to spending lots of time in antique shops all over the UK (I’m outrageously jealous!) and are always on the look out for pretty vintage items to include in their masterpieces. But, says Natalie; “We also encourage brides to send us any vintage items that have sentimental value to us so we can incorporate it into the bouquet along with pictures of loved ones or even a small watch pendant for the bride who hates to be late!”
LOVE Boutique pride themselves on using high quality crystal, fresh water pearls and vintage brooches and buttons, and you can see how much hard work and love goes into making into each bouquet on their website.
Personally, I’d be tempted to take Natalie’s advice and include some of your own jewellery – just imagine being able to wear part of your bouquet on your 30th Wedding anniversary. Quite honestly I can’t imagine anything more stunningly romantic. Can you?
Thanks for reading and kisses to our lovely contributors Natalie & Sheila of L.O.V.E. Bouquets – I do hope it has left you feeling suitably inspired!
