A Vintage Necklace With Heart

30 Nov


Earlier this month we were lucky enough to be able to have our pick from a range of bridal accessories from Cherish Jewellery in Tunbridge Wells, who loaned us some of their gorgeous pieces for a photo shoot. Our absolute favourite was this stunning necklace with a vintage heart set amongst freshwater pearls and crystals (£125.00).

Vintage Necklace

Cherish has a wide range of jewellery and bridal accessories which are exclusively hand-made, with some designs using freshwater pearls, swarovski crystals and semi precious stones as well as vintage pieces ready to order.

If you are looking for a real one-off statement piece then this is the place to come.  They also take commissions so if you have something in mind but just can’t find it anywhere then give them a call.

A little bit of heart

Buying accessories for bridesmaids can be an added expense you don’t include at budget setting.  Think about using the accessories as a keepsake for your bridesmaids and surprising them on the morning of the wedding (not an option if you are borrowing diamonds from Asprey!)

High street shops now have fab ranges which don’t cost a fortune but if you are looking for something a little bit special then these earings from Etsy are just gorgeous for a vintage feel.

Wedding Show at Leeds Castle

15 Oct

We had a really tiring but fun day at the Leeds Castle Wedding Show and it was such a great way to meet all the local suppliers whilst sipping champagne!  With such a unique and brilliant range of friendly and knowledgable Kent suppliers on tap that we feel very glad indeed that it’s our stomping ground.

We caught the last catwalk show of the day (which was minus Claire Sweeney). The catwalk show was fun and the models did a great job – however the goody bag certainly lacked a little bit of oomph and the large amount of empty audience seats made it feel a bit half-hearted. However it was a good way at seeing some of the dresses and wedding outfits in action which you wouldn’t have got otherwise.

Overall the show is worth a visit if you are in the area but some of the free ones offer just as much info and ideas (albeit without a catwalk show). It seems to be a case of good but try harder next year Leeds Castle!
