Putting together the bouquets for myself and my matron of awesome was one of my favourite wedding projects.

I used the kit as a starting point and added as many personal touches as I could squeeze in. If you look at the photos closely you might spot 
  • zippers and studs leftover from my Bebop costume
  • Beau's Beer ribbon, 
  • mesh from the suitcase that travelled the world with me when I was a teenager,
  • buttons from Chris' father's military uniforms and his uncle's fire fighter uniform, 
  • bits of bicycle inner tube rubber leftover from making armour, 
  • ribbon collected from all sorts of events and gifts,
  • tulle snipped from tutus,
  • aluminium roses,
  • feathers and bits of jewelry, 
  • and even an I heart Burning Man button
