The previous season’s stock is now being offered at half-price! Based in Royston, the company has been trading for more than 47 years and has an extensive stock on two floors to suit all occasions and budgets. The year 2023 is shaping up to be very busy for weddings. Once the company opened in January after the Christmas break, the phone hasn’t stopped ringing for appointments for mother-of-the-brides/ grooms looking for the perfect attire. Some people still look for a classic mother-ofthe-bride outfit, while others want something less traditional and opt for a stand-alone dress with a statement hat. Whatever clients are after, the team at Cream of Royston are ready to help customers look and feel amazing. Check out: ACCESSORISE AND SHINE Jodie Gearing Bespoke Jewellery Design is a Bedfordshire-based company that has won the Special Touch Category at The Wedding Industry Awards 2023 for the East of England. Owner Jodie Gearing specialises in bespoke handmade eternity, engagement and wedding rings as well as jewellery. Engagement rings often require a fitted wedding band, but the options on the high street are very limited. One of the company’s real strengths is designing fitted rings that also look incredible when worn on their own while fitting into certain budgets and desired styles. With more than a decade of experience, Jodie will guide couples through the experience, helping them make informed and creative choices. Customers can use sentimental metals or stones in their design and often like to add hidden details like their birthstones or engraving inside their forever rings.
