What is your most memorable wedding?
I'm bias but it has to be my husband and my wedding as we just got married in September. Everything was bespoke and the way we wanted it. We shopped local and supported other small businesses. Our wedding was completely unique to us and we loved every minute of our magical day.

Describe your typical process with a couple.
Couples have a browse through my website to get inspiration, then they get in touch to arrange an appointment. I offer wedding and engagement ring consultations and can design bespoke rings for each of you. I show you finished rings and ask what details you would like on your rings. We decide on finished design, you get quote, I require 50% payment if you wish to go ahead and you get the rings within the agreed timescale. You will get an email when they are ready and you both come in to try on, collect and pay final amount. Hay presto!
What are your favourite wedding traditions for rings?
For me, it's not about tradition any more. The couple can chose their own designs unique to them.
What is the most romantic engraving you have seen on a wedding ring?
it's a wonderful life
Which ring do you think holds most significance for a bride?
engagement ring (for me it is as I have a statement engagement ring with a thin fitted wedding ring) but everyone is different, some people don't wear their engagement ring after they have got married, or some have one statement ring to represent both rings, it's really up to each bride to decide what is most meaningful to them.
What is your favourite proposal story?
Neil proposing to Rachael on the beach of the Isle of Lewis. Her ring was inspired by the colour of the sea and the textures of the sand, so is totally unique to them.
