Gooooooood morning London! and how are you today? are you as confused as me by this snow in March? suddenly those warnings of global warming don’t seem so crazy anymore do hey?! lol
Anyway moving swiftly on, it’s really been go go goooo at the Stylish Event camp this past week, our Hedsor House couples wedding is next weekend, so we’re firing on all cylinders, crossing all the ‘T’s’ dotting all the ‘I’s’ and just generally making sure everything is all set and prepped for the big day. It’s going to be such a beautiful wedding, really looking forward to seeing all the gorgeous hand picked decor pieces (some of which have come from as far as India!) all put together on the day – that’s one of the elements of this job that I love; seeing all the little things we have been sourcing and organising all finally fit together like pieces in a jigsaw and your finally able to take a step back and fully admire all hard work that went into creating this beautiful day!
Talking of beautiful, it’s time to introduce todays ‘Supplier of the Week’! I discovered Sarah Bates of ‘Britten’- who designs and creates handcrafted luxury wedding accessorie via Not On The High Street (A site I have more than raved about in past posts – I’ve even purchased a few items from there for family and friends – FAB – trust me, check it out) By now you will have guessed I’m a walking magpie for all things, shiny, blingy and just plain glittery, so when I spied Sarah’s BEAUTIFUL wedding accessories on NOTH (For future reference Not On The High Street will be shortened to NOTH lol) I catapulted into love with her whole range.
So Sarah, where do you draw your inspiration from for your accessories?
“My main inspiration is the iconic fashion of times gone by, the glitz of the twenties, the glamour of the thirties and forties, and the femininity of the fifties, Britten’s collections of bridal accessories are designed to be both timeless and treasured.”
What do you feel sets you apart from other companies in your industry?
“Each and every piece is entirely handmade to order from our quaint workshops located just outside Bath. The designs are not traditionally bridal from opulent ostrich feather fans to intricately embellished purses.”
What’s your favourite piece, that you’ve designed for a client?
“My favourite ever bespoke design was a pale grey ostrich feather headpiece with handbeaded deco detail.”
