Words fail me…

We were absolutely delighted to receive this lovely feedback recently from a desperate bride in need of help with only days to go before her wedding… Words fail me…   …..I say that, not only because how you helped me has been nothing short of wonderful and that in itself sort of left me speech(and word)less, but also because I’m a writer so words are the one thing I’m never in short supply of. Yet you are the reason why I am now trying to find words to express how you made such a difference, how you made me go from heartbroken and desperate to hopeful and ecstatic.   Thank you for, quite literally, saving the day. Thank you for repairing my dream dress that I was so heartbroken over, thinking it was beyond repair (and to be fair, it pretty much was – until you came to my rescue). Thank you for taking your time and showing such determination to help me make it right when I was never the customer with the budget of the customers you would normally receive, yet you made me feel so important and dedicated so much time to me. That is testament to a great business and to you as a business owner – most others would have dismissed me given I didn’t have lots to spend and there was very little in this for you. Yet you made me feel like a queen despite all of that and made me feel like my wedding day was a top priority and you made it one.   And that is what a local...

Gillian Million Spring 2017 Botanical Collection

We are delighted to introduce the brand new Spring 2017 Botanical Collection from Gillian Million, which includes 15 stunning bridal headpieces, each designed to be the crowning glory to your bridal ensemble. Inspired by nature and ethereal beauty, this collection is all about embracing understated elegance. The oh-so delicate pieces feature intertwined leaves and blossoming flowers to enhance the beauty of you, the blushing bride. Perfect for laid-back, boho brides as well as those with a more traditional bridal look – each gorgeously hand-crafted headdress has its own original style to reflect the individual needs of every Gillian Million bride.

Personal Bespoke Accessories Created For Your Dream Dress

When you have chosen your dream wedding dress, whether from Gillian Million or anywhere else, we can design a bespoke accessory, whether a veil, hair adornment, bracelet or sash to work in with your dress.  We don’t charge anymore for bespoke designs but we love creating something unique, special and personal to you.  All designs can be recreated into a piece of jewellery you can wear over and over again after your wedding day. We created a pure silk veil with antique lace edging to go with a Claire Pettibone wedding dress.  We can create to any length and colour so it all works beautifully! Dark grey crystal florette adornment to be worn with this grey marabou stole for special occasion. We are open 7 days a week for appointments for your bespoke accessories.  We really do have an Aladdin’s cave of beautiful things to feast your eyes upon and get inspired. Gillian Million will spend an hour with you to understand the look, feel and vibe of your wedding and suggest lots of ideas to work in with your budget. Gillian As we always tell our brides, the majority of your wedding photos will be from the shoulder up so it’s important to bear that in mind when accessorising!  Bridal hair vines are a fantastic way to accessorise the hair ensuring that you are adorned from every angle.  Simply having one small comb at the back may look stunning, but you won’t see any detail from front or side shots.   Why not visit the online shop to browse the collection today or alternatively, arrange to make an appointment...
