What do you create?

I am constantly making something, but have been making handmade wedding bouquets and accessories for the last 6 or 7 years. In the last couple of years, I have also begun to make flowers from 100% silk fabrics like dupioni, silk velvet, silk chiffon and other gorgeous silks. I use very old millinery techniques that were used in the old days. Some things I make include, fabric flower bridal bouquets, bridesmaid bouquets, hair pieces, belts/sashes, corsages, boutonnieres, and cake flowers.

Why did you start your business and how did you choose what to make?

My business started after I had been asked several times to help plan or set up for the weddings of various friends. I started noticing handmade things that I could make myself, It sort of gradually transitioned into making flowers and bouquets.

If there’s one thing you’d love your customers to know about you, what would that be?

Most of my customers after working with me realize that I have an eye for detail and that I enjoy making flowers. I really want to make each bride super happy with the things I make for her. Wedding day is a big day, and I love sharing a small part of it.

Lindsay Recknell

Lindsay Recknell co-founded Wedding Recycle out of pure necessity…the fifteen centerpiece vases on the living room floor had got to go! But finding a targeted audience to sell them to was the tricky part – not just anyone wanted fifteen fish bowls for their home. Thus Wedding Recycle was born – a place to connect with other new newlyweds and recently engaged couples, sharing ideas, and décor, with each other. Lindsay has always been an entrepreneur, a multi-dimensional self-starter prone to acts of randomness and dynamic ventures in her life. In addition to consulting as a data analyst during her “day job”, Lindsay’s role at Wedding Recycle is everything – business development, content creation, media correspondent and community liaison. If you contact Wedding Recycle, it’s likely you’ll get a response from Lindsay first and from that moment, you’ll understand and experience the passion, dedication, joy and motivation she has for the Wedding Recycle community and the wedding industry itself.
