Come along to chat with her on the 30th September!
Tell us a little about yourself and what you make.
My Fabric Flowers came into being about eighteen months ago as I wanted to create alternative handmade bridal bouquets, making them with fabric, buttons, brooches, embellishments, lace and ribbons and any other articles I can find. They are bespoke and one-offs so you will never see another one the same. They can also be displayed as a centrepiece on a table or grouped together as a fabric flower decoration. Shabby chic, boho, vintage wedding themes are very popular with my clients.
What do you like about tiny weddings?
Small weddings are very interesting as they can be more intimate and can allow for more expression of the the couple in their decoration or where they choose to hold their wedding. The larger the wedding the venue has to come into play and questions of can everyone fit into the church and what is wanted or would like to have has to take second place to a certain extent.
Do you think smaller weddings are on the rise?
Smaller weddings really do suit some people, so I hope it will continue. But often couples might feel guilty, or pressured to invite all of their family and friends.
What sort of tiny weddings would especially like to be involved in?
A woodland wedding with the trees lit up and all the tables decorated would be lovely to be involved with.
Have you been involved in smaller weddings, what did you do?
I have been involved with a couple of tiny weddings which have been easier to manage and provide bouquets and decorations for. One of my clients had her reception in her own large garden. The other wedding was also using the clients’ garden and having a background of the river, it was a great venue.
