As soon as the bride mentioned her groom would be wearing blue tweed, I knew exactly what his buttonhole would be for this winter wedding on New Year’s Eve in a small Cheshire village.

The bride’s mother has ecinops retro growing all over her garden. A few months ahead of there wedding, with snips in hand, I foraged sufficient stems to include those beautiful blue globes in both the bridesmaids’ bouquets and the boys’ winter wedding buttonholes.

It is critical to cut ecinops at the right stage and to dry them out of the light. That way they retain their glorious colour. Equally important is to ensure the buttonholes are made to withstand some robust hugging.

Ivy leaves, limonium and wax flower were included, all wrapped with string in a wild garden style for these unique winter wedding buttonholes.

It is critical to cut ecinops at the right stage and to dry them out of the light.

Wild garden style design is about designing floral arrangements with flowers that reflect each moment of the season, perhaps also incorporating locally grown dried flowers from a season past.
