Hey there lovelies! Remember the Project Wedding post where I showed you the materials of what I was working on — why I’ve been on blogging hiatus for a couple of months? As promised, here are the photos of the projects that kept me really busy, lovingly handmade by yours truly for a very special couple close to my heart.
The Heirloom Cord
This one is made of crystals in the couple’s favorite color… Years from now, as this gets passed on to their generation — they will be reminded of the lovely, sun-shinny yellow personalities of the couple!
The Bridesmaid Bouquet (4 pcs)
For her bridesmaids, I used buttons as the main material of the bouquet. I wanted her bridesmaids to hold on something unique, cute, at the same time colorful — exactly the way I see the couple’s characters!
Still using buttons as the main material to match the bridesmaids’ bouquet… I made the leaves using my favorite medium, clay!
The rose is made of clay embellished with two kinds of feathers and of course pearls to match the Kwebu bouquet. The bride isn’t fond of flowers, however, I still injected a touch of it on to her wedding because flowers are special, exactly how special she is!
This is the project where I have spent most of my time — stringing and wiring the pearls. I realized I wasn’t able to take a nice picture of this bouquet but they look more gorgeous in person, just like the ninangs!
Initially, I used royal blue ribbons to envelope the kwebu bouquets, but later on changed it to a different kind of yellow gold ribbon (as requested) for a lighter effect. Here’s how the first design looks like..(sorry for the photo, I used my phone cam then later on applied an IG filter).
I love how simple yet wonderful this boutonniere is… exactly how amazing both their fathers are!
The Mom’s Bouquet (2 pcs)
This one here is a smaller version of the bride’s bouquet — in pink! I love pink and I think both the mom’s, too! Perfect for their sweet personalities..
And now here’s what I made for the two most important people in the wedding — the couple!
The Groom’s Boutonniere
Simple yet elegant. The groom is one very simple guy… however, there’s more to him than what meets the eye! Just like this boutonniere, he is not just handsome — he is one sparkingly sweet guy, too!
The Bride’s Bouquet
Made of different kinds of brooches, pearls and beads. This bouquet perfectly describes the bride’s personality — bubbly, colorful and simply beautiful!
My tags came in a bit late.. So I wasn’t able to take pictures of it attached to the bouquets, boutonnieres and cord. I was done with the photo shoot and had given everything to the couple when I got my tags in the mail. As soon as I got the tags, I just went to the bride’s place to attach them. Nevertheless, it looked perfect! And I would like to thank my online friend, Jaye of Jigs and Clays, for making something very beautiful and making sure I get it before the wedding albeit the very short notice. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! 🙂
When I started this project I was VERY nervous.. I honestly don’t know how to go about each piece! Plus the fact that most of the time the couple just consults me back every time I’d ask them to give me a particular design — made me all the more scared! But yes, when there is love — love for the people you are making it for, love for the things you do, you’ll be surprised with just how far and lovely things you can come up with!
I pictured to come up with something unique, colorful and playful for this very special wedding… When I saw these lovelies in action — all the fear and weary faded, and was immediately replaced with nothing but pure gladness and love.
Special thanks to the sweet couple and 12 Masters Photography for sharing some of the awesome photos (with 12M marks) they took of my works ! Thank you! Stay tuned to my next post – – I’ll be sharing with you shots of these lovelies in action! 🙂
So what do you think? Not bad for a first time? Would you like the same for your wedding? Let me know in the comments… I’d love to hear what you think. 😉
