I love working with brides to create something bespoke for your wedding day. It's such an honour to be entrusted with making your wedding jewellery or accessories and it's lovely to share in the excitement of getting ready for your big day.
Read on to find out the bespoke process and how we can work together whether you are near or far.
How It Works
Working with me in person at the studio or remotely via Zoom, means that you can be part of the creative process and together we’ll create a one of a kind wedding headpiece or bridal jewellery that will be just yours.
As part of the process we’ll look at your dress, your wedding theme and your style and we'll narrow down your inspiration into a concept. I’ll make notes and perhaps some rough sketches during our appointment. We can look at my vast collection of beads, wires and pearls, for colours and textures, later I can also source others to suit your design too, if I don’t have exactly the right thing.
Following the appointment I’ll be in touch with a no obligation quote in around a week.
Once work is in progress I’ll keep you up to date with photos and emails.
Costs & Timescales
Completely bespoke designs can take between 4- 8 weeks to complete and be delivered in the UK. Costs will vary depending on materials used and the intricacy of your design, but as a rough guide a bespoke intricate wedding headband would start from £250. Other wedding accessories and jewellery are likely to start at a lower amount. Read on for more about customised pieces.
Once the design is agreed you’ll need to pay a non refundable deposit of 50% before I can start making, with the balance due before delivery or collection.
What Do You Mean By Customised?
A customised piece is a personalised version of a design already in my collection.
You might like something but prefer a different colour, or perhaps there is a hair comb in the collection that you’d prefer as a hairpin, for example. There may be some elements in one design that you’d like to combine with another. A simple tweak to a design is unlikely to affect the price of a piece, but more complex work is likely to. A price will be agreed before any work is started.
Your Bridal Consultation
In the Studio
Whilst my studio is usually open to general visitors on Thursdays or Fridays, for a full bridal consultation please make an appointment using the form below. This is so I can dedicate all my attention to you without interruptions or distractions such as imminent deadlines. Consultations are available throughout the week.
If travelling to see me is not an option we can arrange a remote bridal consultation by email, phone or Zoom, book using the form below.
Initial consultations are free and there is no obligation to take things further after your appointment.

Emma got married in Malta and so these earrings were designed and inspired by the Maltese cross.
Julie commissioned her headband along with a matching necklace, a silver wire flower bouquet, plus accessories for her bridesmaids and wire flower table decorations for reception.
