Your Cheshire and Merseyside Wedding - July/August 2022 (Issue 64)

MY LITTLE PONY Cheshire Pony Parties has created a new service to add to its repertoire: wedding ponies. Owner Amanda Keech tells us, “I was approached by a London-based wedding planner to provide a pony to carry the bubbly at a wedding hosted at a prestigious venue in Cheshire. It inspired me to put my 14 years of experience in delivering professionally organised, high end, engaging pony and unicorn parties with the wow factor, to create a new service for weddings.” The gorgeous wedding ponies will be available to cover Cheshire and occasionally, surrounding counties, carrying either champagne for the newlyweds, while you’re having your photos taken and/or confetti for your guests to throw. These little treasures offer an adorable extra to a country wedding or for a horse-loving couple. Amanda continues, “I wanted the ponies to have a simple country look, so was delighted to find some gorgeous tiny wicker baskets, just big enough to carry a bottle.” Cuteness overload!

Each one of these stars has been spotted sporting solitaire diamond engagement rings. The style, which has doubled in sales at ROX over the past 12 months, is a popular choice as the style shows the diamond to its full potential, throwing light into it for superior sparkle. So, whether you’re looking to replace a temporary engagement ring or you’d like to congratulate yourself for being bang on trend, you may want to take note! The term “oval solitaire engagement ring” has seen a 50 per cent increase in searches over the last year. Like Kourtney Kardashian’s swoon-worthy piece, the ROX Honour Oval Cut Diamond Ring in platinum (from £2,295) will also make a showstopping statement. ROX Love Brilliant Cut Diamond Ring (from £2,750) set in platinum with 14 brilliant cut diamonds on each shoulder is the ideal choice for those who like to stand out from the crowd. More women are opting for yellow gold bands with a white diamond. While these have a vintage feel, you only have to look at the likes of Emily Ratajkowski and Megan Markle to know that gold has timeless appeal. Check out ROX’s Honour Oval Solitaire Diamond Ring in yellow gold (from £2,060). Princess Eugenie, Jennifer Lopez had Victoria Beckham have all worn dazzling pink-stoned engagement rings and ROX Honour Pink Sapphire Diamond Ring in platinum (£17,995) is the perfect choice for an ultra-feminine bride who likes to buck tradition.
