Jenny and David's botanical Welsh wedding with succulent buttonholes, button bouquets and wildflowers // Emma Stoner Photography // The Natural Wedding Company

We might be hurtling towards Christmas but today on the blog we are back in June for a beautiful summer wedding. This botanical Welsh wedding is full of sweet eco details – homegrown plants for decorations, handmade bunting – and a love of plants and the natural world.

Jenny and David got married on 25th June at the Ceridwen Centre in the Welsh countryside, and their wedding was captured by TNWC Recommended Photographer Emma Stoner. Over to Jenny to tell us more about their botanical Welsh wedding…

Pretty fabric napkin rings with buttons

Charlie / 2 February 2012

fabric and button wedding napkin rings

If you have the time (or a friend or family member nifty on the sewing machine) I think these lovely handmade napkin rings would be a lovely addition to your wedding reception tables.  Simple fabric strips, sealed with a button – I guess you could either just sew the fabric into a ring and affix a button simply to look nice, or you could go further and actually make them working buttonholes.  I’m not sure I’d have that patience!

They could also double up as wedding favours, to save you making or buying something else, and so that you don’t end up with hundreds of napkins rings after your wedding.  These ones are made even prettier with the stamped luggage tags – I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of luggage tags and their many uses.
