Today’s featured hair accessorie…. ‘Luella’ hair pins by Donna Crain Surrey

The Luella Comb is my personal favourite as I simply adore the luminescent blue beads and tiny cream pearls designed by Donna Crain.  The gold wiring radiantly catches the light and the whole piece has a delicate, organic feel with the detailed bronze like leaves.  This beautiful comb is very versatile and can be easily slotted into any hairstyle.  It especially works well in a loose low bun, soft updo and half up styles.

The decorative detail on the comb measures approximately 9cm (W) x 6cm (H)

Beautifully packaged in a pretty grey box from Donna Crain.  All items are handmade by their respective designer’s, so whilst every care is taken to ensure they look like the displayed images, some may vary due to the uniqueness of the build process.

Today’s featured hair accessorie…. ‘Romance’ by Victoria Fergusson

Not only is this hairpin surprisingly light in weight but also beautifully delicate in form.  If any of my brides are opting for a soft chignon, low bun or half up style I always recommend this piece by Victoria Fergusson.  A mix of small pearls in Swarovski crystal Ivory, pearlescent and ivory freshwater pearls make such a stunning combination creating the perfect balance of ‘bridal whites’.  The tiny beads look like little blossom buds. The design is enhanced with three small fans of Swarovski crystal, mixing Silver Shade and clear gem stones. The perfect choice for understated hair adornment.

The hairpin measures approximately 15cm (L) x 2cm (H)

Today’s featured hair accessorie…. ‘Seeds of Love’ by Victoria Fergusson

Superbly handcrafted by accessories designer Victoria Fergusson, this delicate trio of cluster pearls and subtle bead sparkle are my personal favourite hairpins as they remind me most of a family heirloom.  The delicate stems are like seeds that might be blown on the wind…  Exceptionally versatile for styling in different hairstyles – I love to play around with either placing them together or slightly apart throughout the style.

Each pin decorative detail measures approximately 4cm (L) x 3cm (H)

Crown & Glory hair accessories – quirky & vintage!

I’ve fallen a bit in love with Crown and Glory hair accessories – they are that perfect combination between quirky and vintage, with many brides opting to have one of their pieces instead of a veil or for a bridesmaid to wear – they are simply gorgeous!  I’ve decided to use many from the range for my models to wear during photo shoots and videos, as I think they compliment the makeup perfectly and give the look that extra edge.  Below are a few of my favourite pieces, all still available at Crown & Glory – I think I might keep the headband moustache for myself though!! x
