Your Yorkshire Wedding - March/April 2023 (Issue 59)

FINISHING TOUCHES 75 Who? LeatherLookLeg Where? Thirsk Why? “With a background in creating headwear for the Parisian catwalks, and a passion for sustainable design; I’ve created a range of handcrafted headpieces for your special day. Hand gilded cork fabric, silk ruffles and dustings of gilt gold sparkles create a collection of bespoke headwear, to buy or hire, with packages starting at £80. Sustainable design and materials are now more prevalent in fashion, with a greater awareness of the impact of what we buy and wear having on the environment. As such we have an array of ecologically sensitive materials, such as tree resin, cork bark, and paper made from beer waste, which are experimented upon and explored to create a highly-crafted, ethically focused range of products.” Sally Wright | Who? Natalia Willmott Where? Stillingfleet Why? “We’re the place to look for vintage and handmade jewellery, focusing on sourcing unique pieces to create a distinctive look. The trends that I’m seeing for this year definitely surrounds larger pieces of jewellery that catch your eye and are fun to wear – think of it as jewellery that has that wow factor! I find unique jewellery pieces that can be cherished for a lifetime and can be used beyond your wedding day. For me, it’s all about having a piece of jewellery that you have worn for one of the best days of your life, but that you can also wear time and time again. This makes it sustainable, but also creating ongoing memories for you to treasure forever.” Natalia Willmott |
