***Competition Now Closed*** Win A Maria Allen Personalised Necklace on London Bride

I hope you all had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend? The good news is that the fun isn’t quite over just yet as we are kicking off this week with a fabulous giveaway for a lucky London Bride reader!

I was recently introduced to the beautiful jewellery from the Maria Allen Boutique, who’s designs feature intricate vintage illustrations on wood, fusing traditional and modern together. The stand-out piece for me is the adorable, charming and super pretty personalised mini love letter necklace. I was lucky enough to receive my very own personalised necklace from Maria Allen and I’m completely smitten with it – even if I did write the love note to myself!

Each necklace is carefully handmade in the Maria Allen studio in Brighton, and it features a 24k gold plated envelope locket with a lovely textured surface. There is a sweet bird charm ‘delivering’ the envelope on the chain and the locket can be opened to reveal a teeny removeable wooden card insert which will have your choice of words etched onto it. My choice of words is a little nod to our engagement story, how very soppy! It’s very cute how you can open the locket to reveal the message – any guys out there looking to propose I can imagine this being the most perfect opportunity!

The winner of this gorgeous necklace worth £49 will be able to choose their own short message, date or name to include which can even be in any language. Perfect for a wedding day accessory, bridesmaid gift or just because!

Well, as the [ahem] popular 90s boy band Blue sang ‘One Love’ is all about one thing – Love – but in all different forms and combinations. In case you’ve been living under a rock lately, you’ll now be aware of the fabulous news that a few weeks ago, the law was passed [finally!!!] to enable same-sex couples to marry legally in England and Wales. Incredibly positive news for gay and lesbian couples throughout the country and to the wedding industry, so very timely to introduce you all to the One Love Wedding Show London…
