Claire’s wedding


Last summer I was honoured to be bridesmaid at my friend Claire’s wedding. It was a gorgeous setting in Somerset with lots of lovely food and fun activities planned for the guests over the whole weekend. After a fairly disastrous journey down thanks to a plumbing emergency and awful traffic, we finally made it down with Claire’s precious tiara in hand! It was inspired by her gorgeous gold floral engagement ring.

Caroline’s hairband


My dear friends Caroline and Alan were married at the beautiful Ripley Castle in Yorkshire this summer. It was an unseasonably rainy day, but the castle and grounds looked spectacular as strong rays of sun burst through the rainclouds and the rain showers added to the intimate and special atmosphere inside. We were very touched to take part in their wedding and Caroline asked me to make her a side hairband with a delicate floral spray to go with her lace fishtail dress. She looked beautiful and elegant, as I knew she would!

This really is one of my favourite hair accessories I have made so far as it is so elegant and unusual.

And finally, I had to show you their sweet little wish tree, with lovely message hung on it from their guests!
