If you’re thinking about a gothic wedding, or simply have an eye for the dramatic, your average florist may not have just what you’re looking for. For an alternative bouquet, how about going for something like these leather roses? Each one is handmade by Louise Hugill, who began the English Leather Rose Company after friends expressed an interest in her hobby. There is a huge range of colours available – more than you’d ever find naturally! and Louise is happy to discuss bespoke choices for your big day.
The image shows a drop bouquet featuring matt black leather roses with port leather foliage, the company offers button-holes for the chaps and posies for the little ones too. Of course even if you’re not going for goth, it’s a great way to select something that will last forever, and they do offer the more classic red, white and pink roses – which might also make a perfect gift for your third “Leather” anniversary.
