A Beautiful Bride in Gillian Million Hair Vine

Another beautiful thank you note from one of our brides, Victoria!  She looked simply stunning in her Gillian Million hair vine which sits perfectly in her hair. All designs are unique and made to order, to any length, colour and detail.  The other vines displayed here are to give you a bit of inspiration with some looks we have already created. If you’re buying from our online shop, we’ll always follow up the purchase with a phone call to 100% guarantee you are getting the perfect accessory for your look. We had such a fantastic day in May, I’ve attached a few photos for you. I felt like a real princess all day and absolutely love the hair vine you made for me… I’m just sad I can’t wear it everyday! Victoria 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 bejewelled 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 at the studio.  If you live too far from London, no problem, simply request a personal call back and we can discuss your options to create the perfect wedding accessory!

Wedding accessories fit for paradise

As always, we love to hear from our gorgeous brides and so we were delighted to see how stunning this bride looked on her special day.  Blue skies, white sand and a tiffany blue colour scheme set the scene for Stephanie and Christopher’s Cayman Island wedding, with her wedding accessories designed in our studio. (images courtesy of Rebecca Davidson Photography) For me, it was important to wear a hair vine and have a longer length silk veil.  The photos capture every moment of the day.  Once I communicated my dream, I knew I was in fantastic hands and you, Gillian, exceeded my expectations in every way. You fitted into the overall look your beautiful jewellery pieces in every way, without actually seeing my dress beforehand.  You kept my Mum and I laughing and smiling every step of the way.  You gave me lots of options for hair vines and provided a wide selection of silk veils.  Seeing the great detail that has gone into the unique pieces, at that moment, I knew I had the best jewellery in the world.  It was an incredibly emotional day and this small act of support meant the world to me.  I have nothing but kind thoughts for you.

What a lovely Thank You!

Dear Gillian, I wanted to say a massive thank you for making my stunning veil – and of course my mum’s lovely gift! I completely adored my veil – and didn’t want to take it off so kept it on right the way through to the first dance when I changed my look slightly and replaced the veil and flower crown with a 1920’s style band. Everyone said how stunning the veil was and it was the exact ‘look’ I wanted on the day….and it worked perfectly with the flower crown too! As I was walking around I hooked it over my arm which looked so great with the dress. I loved it!                         My mum burst into tears when I gave her the brooch you made using the fabric from my dress and veil – a true treasure and I know she appreciated it so much. Thank you thank you thank you …….. Rhi...
