This is such a wonderful idea! Something a couple can do together and always knowing that they made their own wedding rings is quite special indeed. I really recommend these workshops.

What could be more special than designing and crafting each other's' wedding rings? The most enduring symbol of the marriage ceremony is the exchange of rings and what better way to seal your lifelong commitment to each other than with rings you have designed and made yourself.
The one-day wedding ring workshop at the London Jewellery Workshop, where couples make their own rings is a unique experience that is both bonding and memorable.

Nina Gilbey, who runs the London Jewellery Workshop, based in the heart of London's Shoreditch says 

"the wedding ring making workshop is one of our most popular events. Couples, even those with little or no experience in design learn to make rings in the precious metal of their choice".

"It's a very special day and it is often a real treat for couples who sometimes get so bogged down in planning the big day that they don't have time to spend together".

There really is nothing quite like a beautifully made hat for a wedding. Whether you are the bride or a guest at the wedding, it is well worth searching to find a stylish milliner. I am particularly fussy about hats, but I have recently come across Fina Foster and I really do love her work.

London-based hat maker Gina Foster specialises in making bespoke hats, headpieces and fascinators from her Atelier on Portobello Road.

Tatler featured four of Gina's hats in its report on the 'best dressed guests' at the Royal Wedding and her couture hats have graced the pages of Vogue Russia, Tatler, Style, Brides and Grazia to name a few.

Gina opened her central London hat shop in 2010. She previously worked with legendary milliner Stephen Jones, leading the team in his 'Miss Jones' workroom and collaborating with him on collections for fashion shows, exhibitions and films. Prior to this she worked with fashion milliner Noel Stewart and society milliner Jess Collet, developing her elegant, understated style and her attention to detail. 

All Gina's hats and fascinators are hand-made in her central London studio using materials of the highest quality.

Wedding Clothing and Accessories with style...
Photography by Rosa Fay Photography

Yesterday I attended the Bristol Vintage Wedding Fair at the Clifton Pavilion at the Bristol Zoo Gardens. My photographer was Rosa Fay Photography. As Rosa is more of a Fashion Photographer, her photographs were much stronger on the wedding fashion and accessory side, so I have decided to focus purely on this part of the event. But please do also visit the Bristol Vintage Wedding Fair website to see the full selection of wonderful and creative exhibitors. 

Visit the Bristol Vintage Wedding Fair website for more details of the event and the exhibitors. Above is only a very small selection of the wonderful exhibitors that were there on the day.

N.B. I have tried, where possible to list the companies you see above, if you are on this post and not listed, please let me know and I will amend ASAP. Thank you
