We make bridal accessories for some of the world's most well known bridal boutiques and are loved and used by designers too. With our unique Wax Flowers Collection, we are offering brides some of the most luxurious bridal hair accessories the world has ever seen. After standing at the exclusive White Gallery London and making it to the finals in the Best Headdresses category, you are buying the heirlooms of tomorrow. All of our collections offer unique and unusual bridal hair accessories and complementing jewellery that you'll want to cherish for a lifetime. Designed and made in the heart of the Peak District National Park we use only the finest quality components including semi-precious stones, fresh water pearls and pure silk. Our Elegance Collection features pure silk hand shaped flowers that are perfect for brides wanting a little bit of drama for their accessories. Our Duet Collection allows the bride to incorporate some family brooch or jewellery into her accessories that can be effortlessly removed after the day. Check out our website for more unique styles and designs and check out our facebook pages for links to blogs and other tips and hints. Visit our luxury boutique in the beautiful market town of Bakewell, Derbyshire so you can try on as many headpieces, vines and tiaras you like to find the right one for you and your dress. We work with your budget to ensure you get just what you are looking for. Bridesmaids and mothers of the bride and groom can have their hair accessories to complement the brides along with jewellery too. Your accessories are the finishing touches you need to complete a look. It needn't be a massive statement piece, perhaps a single fresh water pin and vine would be enough but will look like you've considered the look, after all, you wouldn't go without your shoes! We offer a no interest payment installment plan so you can have the accessories you want and can spread the costs too.

What is your most memorable wedding?
A bride asked us to create a side tiara and provided us with one of her Grandmother's brooches. Her Grandmother knew that she wasn't going to live to see the wedding but she got to see the finished design and her Granddaughter had her something borrowed and something old, an heirloom to treasure full of personal memories.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Unique. Heirlooms. Quality. Vintage. Luxury.
What about your business are you most proud of?
My sister and I are proud to have grown our business from making accessories for friends and family into the position we now hold within the bridal accessories industry. To be invited to stand the White Gallery London and London Bridal Fashion Week is testament to the quality and uniqueness of our bridal headdresses and complementing jewellery. We're also proud of our restoration projects that enable brides to use, re-create or incorporate family heirlooms into unique and personalised wedding accessories.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
You've got to feel happy in your dress and accessories as the photographs taken on your wedding day are some of the most important you'll ever have taken in your life.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A Grandmother's brooch that incorporated into her Granddaughter's side tiara. The Grandmother knew that she wasn't going to live to see the wedding but still wanted to play a small part in the day.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
On first contact either over the phone, email or in person at a wedding show or in our boutique, we find out the date of the wedding. We then discuss the dress she's gone for and try, try and try loads of accessories on. Sometimes what you think won't suit, looks fabulous so we encourage brides to go out of their comfort zone at this part of the process as they often surprise themselves when they see a piece on. We offer payment installments to ease bride's budgets and also hire out our accessories too.
What do you love most about your job?
Playing a small but important role in a bride's special day is a real privilege for us as is creating heirloom quality accessories the bride will love to wear and cherish forever.
What is your favourite style of wedding dress?
We love the quirky vintage tea length dresses as they add a bit of personality to a wedding day moving away from the traditional.
What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?
We make small hair pins made with a variety of blue toned Swarovski crystals. These can either be tucked into the hair style somewhere or even within the bride's bouquet.
What is your favourite wedding dress of all time?
Dajana Basic of London designs combines the elegance of traditional wedding dresses with a hint of colour to create unique and irresistible designs. We love The House of Mooshki's quirky vintage styling with Charlotte being a firm fave. We also love the elegance of Alan Hannah's chic designs too. Ian Stuart's Flowerbomb is also a firm favourite with masses of fabulous detailing.
