What do you create?
I design custom, ever lasting wedding bouquets and accessories created from satin fabric, brooches, buttons and other materials. I also create home decor such as book fold art, embroidery and signs created from reclaimed materials.

Why did you start your business and how did you choose what to make?
I have been designing for 5 yrs and started creating using buttons as my medium. The first button bouquet was shared with the world and soon evolved into creating bouquets with handmade satin flowers and brooches. I started my business because I love finding the beauty and purpose in abandoned objects and changing it into something new and beautiful. Old books are my favorite, the stories inside and the stories of when they were cherished, read and enjoyed. Every book I use has been donated to me by libraries or privately, saving the precious pages from a landfill and instead created into a stunning piece of art to display. Bridal bouquets all incorporate vintage brooches, old jewelry I’ve collected, sometimes the fabric flowers themselves are created from special articles of clothing such as wedding dresses and loved ones shirts.

If there’s one thing you’d love your customers to know about you, what would that be?
I’ve been told numerous times that my passion runs through each design, and it’s true. I love what I do, to take nothing and create this treasure that will be etched in your memory and heart forever.

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.
