All pieces are handmade in my Cotswold studio using vintage, natural and recycled materials, ensuring each design is unique and reflects your taste and personality.
The choices you and your partner make on your wedding day should reflect your personal style and your love for each other. I work closely with you to design hair accessories that are tailor made to suit you, working with your dress, hair style and face shape to flatter and emphasise your natural beauty. If you have a piece of heirloom jewellery, or an off-cut of lace or fabric you would like to use these can be incorporated into the design. For a fully coordinating package I can also make accessories for the bridesmaids, hats for the mums, as well as bridal belts and keepsake bouquets.
Consultations can be done in person at my studio, or via email, post and phone for mail order commissions.
The materials I use are ethically and sustainably sourced, including vintage costume jewellery and lace, vintage trims and feather plumes, millinery wool felts and sinamay (from the Abaca plant) and feathers from a licensed gamekeeper.
All pieces are carefully and loving made by hand, stitched and wired together so they will become future heirlooms to be treasured for generations to come.
