Part of being a wedding planner is working with some pretty amazing clients, and in some amazing places. Well Gwen and Li-Hur’s wedding was both of these for me. Whilst we had the elegance and luxury backdrop of London’s iconic Claridge’s for the day, this couple loved quirky details, so injected their personalities into the day for their guests to enjoy, with fun touches such as the buttonholes by Fairy Nuff Flowers that were tied with a lego figure, the 80’s evening band that filled the dance floor and the fact that Gwen decided to wear her amazing green leather jacket over her stunning Monique Lhuillier gown for a leather and lace look, all made for a gorgeous spring wedding.
I’m a sucker for glamour and this recently launched company, Hope & Grace specialise in oh-so-pretty and glamorous bridal accessories. The boutique was founded when sisters Nina and Clair were searching for items for their own weddings but struggled to find fashion forward, wearable and beautifully made products, so Hope & Grace was borne!
Hope & Grace sell a collection of headwear and shrugs which are all crafted with beautiful materials and they aim to bring something a little more unusual to the world of bridal accessories. They have collaborated with and sourced from some wonderful designers including Kate Middleton’s favourite Milliner, Vivien Sherrif and Australia’s Peter Lang.
My personal favourite has to be the oversized flower headdress (top image) – Fleur, which is such a wonderfully feminine statement piece.
I love this shrug above, which is really intricate and great to see something so modern and pretty! I have to also mention the dreamy photography by talented wedding and portrait photographer David Jenkins so romantic and they really help the products come to life.
