But amidst all the hustle and bustle, it’s easy to overlook the humble buttonhole, also known as a boutonniere. These exquisite creations are more than just a floral accessory; they symbolise unity, honor, and elegance.

The Artistry Behind Wedding Buttonholes

Crafting a buttonhole is a true art form that requires creativity, precision, and an understanding of floral design. We select the perfect blooms, foliage, and accents that not only reflect the couple’s personality but also complement the larger bouquets and arrangements. The result? A stunning masterpiece that captures the essence of the wedding in a single, elegant detail.

Symbolism and Sentiment

Buttonholes go beyond mere aesthetics; they carry deep symbolism. Traditionally worn by the groom, best man, and groomsmen, these floral accessories represent the unity and loyalty of the wedding party. The delicate blooms mirror the fragility and beauty of love, while the act of pinning a buttonhole becomes a symbol of honour and commitment. 

One of the couple had shared a concept with me – flowers surrounding the base of the wedding cake. This idea resonated deeply with me, and I incorporated it seamlessly into the floral design. It added a touch of charm and continuity, connecting different aspects of their celebration.

They’re not just flowers; they’re a reflection of the emotions, dreams, and promises exchanged on that special day.

From meticulously crafting the pocket meadows to orchestrating a captivating floral installation, every moment of this journey was a challenge that I embraced wholeheartedly. It was a joy to see the colours, textures, and emotions harmoniously weave together, creating a visual symphony that celebrated the union of two souls.
