What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A brooch bouquet that my bride supplied a number of pieces for, including a Mickey Mouse badge her partner had bought her on a trip to Disneyland, and an I (heart) Staffordshire University badge that reminded both of them of their Uni days together.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
For bespoke orders I usually arrange a consultation with the bride - this is sometimes via personal visit to my Cheshire studio, telephone conversation, or Skype call. Discuss any theme the bride has in mind, consider the detail on her dress, think about how she wants to wear her hair, find out if she'll be wearing a veil, discuss budget and wedding date, then in conjunction with my bride, agree some accessory design ideas. I then email my bride with an I overview of what we discussed and agreed, giving her chance to amend. Once the designs are agreed I invoice my bride for a 20% deposit, and start work on her accessory once a deposit is paid. I keep in contact with my bride throughout the design process, and if she can visit the studio, will do a final fitting.
