Clare Lloyd hair accessories on the English Wedding Blog (41)

Back in July my postman arrived with the best little box of goodies I think he’s ever brought me. I was in the midst of planning a photoshoot, and had nervously contacted a handful of my favourite wedding creatives to see if they’d like to get involved. Every single yes meant an indrawn breath and a silent squeal of excitement. But when Clare Lloyd said she’d send me some of her work I was thrilled.

Clare’s pieces are exquisitely crafted. They’re breathtakingly beautiful – I can’t even begin to imagine how much time and hard work goes into creating each accessory. Each one must surely take weeks to create – and they’re flawless, simply perfect in every way.

Just holding one of Clare Lloyd’s bridal hair adornments is a treat. (Holding them against my blue hair and pretending to wear them was one of my favourite five minutes, ever! I didn’t dare wear them!) Unpacking that box from the postman had me completely lost for words – and I want you to share the experience!

Jean Ellis must have flown down from heaven or some other magical realm: surely no one can really have an imagination like this! A real star of The Wedding Show last weekend, Jean called me earlier in the week to say hi. I’d only met Jean’s daughter at the show, and had a quick chat about the English Wedding blog – but promised to write about Jean’s incredible creations.

I don’t know quite what to say – Jean Ellis’s work is out of this world, creative and inspiring. My writing simply can’t do Jean Ellis hairpieces and fascinators justice – so look at the pictures – and be amazed!
