Book bouquet created from Dracula bridal bouquet "Scarlet Bride of Dracula"
Paper lilies & roses handcrafted from pages of Bram Stokers Dracula.
These paper flowers can be made from any books.
Along the petals of the lilies read such immortal lines as "listen to them the children of the night"
Each bloom is created by hand by me using pages from throughout the novel so no two are ever alike.
** This bouquet has now sold I can create a bespoke bouquet for you - book pages will be different **
The handle is beautifully finished with black ribbon & a "mother of pearl" star.
The bouquet is constructed in the traditional Victorian wired style giving it a lovely light & natural feel. This style provides a strong base ensuring that your bouquet will not only last for your special day but for years to come.
I wanted to create a beautiful gothic bouquet that embodied the elegance of the Victorian gothic style. I adore this bouquet & feel that the ends have justified the means - I sacrificed a Wordsworth's classic (complete & unabridged) Dracula (so rest easy no first editions were harmed in the making of this bouquet); nor could I part with my much loved collection of gothic horror tales that introduced me to this novel. I apologised to the book before carefully disassembling it, although I haven't told my Mum, as this kind of book damage is an unforgivable sin
As a designer/maker I can create bridesmaid bouquets, corsages, head-dresses & buttonholes to compliment your bouquet.
Bouquet is approximately 21cm wide, 40cm long & 21cm deep (inc. handle)
