Rosie Willett Designs is delighted to announce they will be launching a brand new wedding headpiece and jewellery collection at the end of February.

The collection is certain to delight brides-to-be in 2015, as Rosie has created a range that will complement the most current wedding dress styles.

Rosie says: “The new range includes a total of nine headpieces – a collection of delicate vines, combs and headbands made with sparkling Swarovski crystal that catches the light with movement, like a twinkling star or a soft scattering of glitter. With pieces in this collection ranging from £72 to £266, I’m aiming to offer something affordable for all brides-to-be.

“We always look at emerging trends in bridal wear to influence our collections. Crystal embellished wedding dresses are very popular this season and we have created a collection of headpieces and jewellery that will complement both embellished gowns and also add some sparkle to plainer dress styles. The delicate nature of our designs is also perfect for pretty lace dresses and illusion necklines.”

You can also buy the fabulous accessories online today at www.jennypackham.com. The ten headdresses which lead the collection are simply divine: I adore the two Candela pieces which have shapely swirls in crystal and opal.

Every piece has beautiful elements to echo those in Jenny’s wedding dress collection, from headdresses encrusted with fabulous floral motifs, crystals and more, to complement the whimsical tiered hemlines and celestial capes seen on Jenny’s bridal catwalks earlier this year.

Yay! Today’s full of pretty. I have a gorgeous photo shoot to share with you – the styling has “a vintage feel without being overdone, just a hint of vintage, as it seems to be a trend that is not going away” – these being the words of accessories designer Charlotte, whose designs feature in the shoot.

I agree. A couple of years back it seemed vintage would be a wedding trend like any other, but it’s most definitely here to stay and you know what? I really love the chic elegance of a vintage wedding theme. Which is why this inspiration shoot is right at home on English Wedding Blog. I hope you love it as much as we do!

As my darling Gareth would say in his best Frank Spencer accent, “I think I’ve done a little whoopsie.” I’ll elaborate: in March I asked wedding jewellers to share their sparkliest designs on the English Wedding Showcase. I intended to share them with you all the very next week… I made two inspiration boards and put them on the English Wedding facebook page, but forgot to share them with you here! Let’s fix that 🙂

The trend for vintage inspired weddings isn’t going anywhere, with brides and wedding designers alike still choosing vintage for their inspiration for 2011 weddings.

Why does vintage work so well? It’s a style that will suit everyone, and a theme that fits the times: making your own wedding decorations is affordable and fun, and a bit of nostalgia is always a treat.

Bridal jewellery is no exception and I’m in love with so many designers and online stores at the moment I could recommend dozens – today it’s the latest from Olivier Laudus. Over to Sangeeta Laudus to tell you more:

“Here at Olivier Laudus we’re still completely in love with the vintage bridal trend and it seems we’re not the only ones, with more and more of our clients asking for vintage-inspired pieces every day.
