Real Bride Sarah

Sarah’s wedding to her fiance Jonathan took place in West Derby and then afterwards at the wonderful Racquets Club in Liverpool.  Sarah had originally chosen the Angelica large pearl headpiece for her ceremony and bespoke long pear drop earrings with pearls, but then decided to keep that headpiece for her evening party.  We then made Sarah an Angelica head chain to match the large piece which she wore for the church and day celebrations.

All photos are from the amazing Love Gets Sweeter, see their blog for more details on their wedding films.  www.lovegetssweeter.co.uk

A bespoke piece for a special bride

Earlier this year, Ellie our own Rocks For Frocks bride was married to Barry in a beautiful ceremony in Italy.  I was left to design a headpiece after Ellie had picked the shape of it, she was able to have the details that she had liked from previous brides pieces and some new little touches to make it special.

I hand beaded the headpiece with lots of little details, including swarovski opals and delicate beading.  I used freshwater pearls and thousands of miyuki beads all hand sewn onto two pieces of vintage lace combined to make the perfect piece.  It was held in place with little combs, giving her options on the day.
Its quite stressful designing for people who are friends and family, but luckily she seemed to love it.

We recently shot our new 2016 collection Enchanted Forest in Formby woods. The collection features hair vines, drapes, pins, side headpieces and tiaras which have a more relaxed, bohemian vibe than usual – think festival chic with emphasis on the luxe. Each piece can take your wedding day look to the next level, but could be adapted for a style that’s classic, luxurious, bohemian or vintage.  Vines can be twisted into plaits, wrapped around soft updos, Hand beaded pieces can be placed differently to change your look from day to evening.

 

The set was dressed by Sweet Pea and Ivy, whilst images were taken by Herve wedding photography. The pieces were incorporated into the look by Hair by Carol Ellis Thompson, whilst makeup up was provided by Made up by Cathryn. The wedding dress was from Asos, and shoot styling and headpieces by Rocks For Frocks. Our barefoot beauty was model Breanna.

 

All pieces are hand wired or hand sewn in our Liverpool studio. For this collection we really wanted to capture the relaxed feel of a modern wedding. The pieces are delicate and complement natural beauty without distracting, in softer colours of blush, pale champagne, opal and pinks. However, the pieces retain their luxurious feel and all include Swarovski crystals, Swarovski pearls and freshwater pearls.

 

We’re thrilled with the ethereal quality of these images which show how the collection can be dressed up or down

 

RFF real bride Louise

RFF bride Louise came to see me to discuss a bespoke piece.  She wanted a statement piece for the back of her hair to pick out the colouring on her beautiful dress, which were shades of ivory and blush.  We decided on a hand sewn vintage lace piece from the cheryl range and added in swarovski light silk crystal to the freshwater pearls, which is a beautiful blush/nude colour.  Im sure you can agree it looked amazing on her day with and without the veil.
