I feel as though we’re venturing out on a wonderful adventure. The wedding industry has a handful of leading lights who are embracing a more sustainable future, inspiring all of us (I hope!) to be more considerate of our planet when we think about weddings. Couture bridal accessories designer Clare Lloyd is one of those leading the industry towards something beautiful and ethical, and we’ve been so excited to write about Clare’s autumnal Omorfa Fylla collection.
We’re delighted to showcase this wonderful collection of bridal hair accessories and jewellery by the fabulously talented Clare Lloyd. Inspired by butterflies in the most exquisitely beautiful way, Clare’s Aurelian Collection combines fine handcrafted details with thoughtfully crafted botanical curves. A chemical free collection of handmade leaves and flowers, stems and buds from natural metals, glass and crystal, this is the one-of-a-kind accessory you’re likely to fall head over heels in love with. I always think of Clare’s handcrafted bridal pieces as heirlooms – they’re so beautifully made and wonderfully detailed.
How was your weekend? I hope you’ve had a lovely relaxing couple of days – and of course, I hope you’re well, and staying safe at home. To distract and delight your eyes this morning I have the most wonderful wedding styling ideas to share with you. This is all about the peonies: glorious pinks and blush tones, texture and foliage, and it would smell just incredible! Huge thank yous to #englishweddingmember Sigi Kirkpatrick Photography for sharing her images with us today.
An elopement is just what I needed right now. Huge thanks to Laura from The Rustic Dresser for this beauty in my inbox today – a timely reminder that LOVE is what life is all about. Weddings are on hold right now; but these glorious images by Westlake Photography will lift your hearts, I just know they will. I’d love to think the future of weddings looks like this – simple, wild and free, pared back and all the more beautiful for it. Stay safe everyone, stay home for now – and dream of a future that looks like this.
It hardly feels like a full 18 months has passed since I discovered Clare Lloyd‘s exquisite handcrafted bridal jewellery. I’d planned a photoshoot in the Lake District, and seen her pieces online… but when they arrived with the postman I was more than blown away. To have the talent, the patience! to create such intricate jewellery must be a dream. To wear a single one of Clare’s stunningly crafted accessories on your wedding day will, I promise, make you feel amazing.
