- Creating beautiful things has always been my passion. I am degree trained in Fashion and Textiles and design and have broad experience in Bridal design and the Wedding industry having run a successful Bridal design business for 10 years previously. My style is romantic and Vintage inspired - I work with only the finest silks and lace and I often use Vintage materials mixed in with new. My Bridal adornments are lovingly handmade with beautiful detail to create treasured keepsakes - heirlooms to be used again by future generations. I work directly with all my Brides in the comfort of my lovely home studio and design the pieces based on the Gown, Wedding theme and colours, venue and the Brides personality ! Each piece is truly bespoke - I never repeat a design so your accessories will always be truly unique . Working closely with my Brides means that you are involved in every step of the design and making process - you will be able to choose all the materials and components of your piece and I keep you updated with regular mails to show progress. My accessories service means that you can come to me for everything except your gown and shoes - so everything can be perfectly co-ordinated . I am constantly adding new ranges - recently I have introduced my 'Trousseau' and 'Millinery' collections - keeping my business fresh and moving forward is very important to me as is keeping up to date with current trends ! My Heirloom velvet ring boxes are made from the best velvets and each takes 4 hours to make - the beauty is in the detail and the high level of craftsmanship! I also offer other Wedding services to include Tiara hire, Vintage lovelies to hire for Venue dressing and planning and advice for Brides who want a Homespun Wedding !

Describe your typical process with a couple.
I usually meet my Brides and Grooms at Wedding Fairs/ open events and firstly they book a complimentary first consultation . This is to establish what accessories are required and talk a bout the gown design , venue , theme of the wedding etc- all these factors play a part in what I will design. During this meeting I will drawn up some initial ideas, we will look at beads, fabrics etc and then I will mail a detailed quote within 24 hours . After that, if the client wishes to go ahead with the order, a second appointment is scheduled during which I will take a 50% non- returnable deposit and commence work on the accessories. I keep in close contact with mails full of photos and I am also happy for brides to come for interim appointments to look at the progress. On completion a collection date is organised !
What do you love most about your job?
I love the diversity !! Everyday is different - I am either designing , making , seeing clients , planning styled shoots , updating social media with new products, attending Wedding Fairs and Open Days - I work most days a 12 hour day but that is because I love it !!
What is your favourite style of wedding dress?
Ethereal and romantic - lots of Vintage lace , delicate beadwork and Tulle of course !
What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?
I often sew a tiny blue silk bow onto a garter but it's also fun to have a bit of glam and stitch Sapphire Swarovski crytals on a garter - my brides love this look !!
What is your favourite wedding dress of all time?
It has to be the gown that Ralph Lauren designed in 2011 for his future Daughter in Law Lauren Bush - it was just perfection!
