Your Hampshire and Dorset Wedding - November/December 2020 (Issue 83)

New out Why have one necklace when you can switch it up and have two stunning looks? This statement piece made from sterling silver with freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals is one of the latest designs just out from Bish Bosh Becca. Created by designer Sarah-Jane Hill in her Hampshire studio, she says, “The trend for having two looks for your wedding day is increasingly popular and this versatile necklace was made with this in mind. Wear both strands at the front, or flip the longest tassel strand over your head to convert it into a choker and have a dramatic back necklace as well. Two looks from one piece, great teamed with delicate chain drop earrings for the perfect finish.” THE WRITE STUFF The wedding stationery is the first glimpse your guests will have of the look and style of your day. Choosing handmade stationery allows you to give a flavour of what to expect by incorporating special motifs, fonts, embellishments and colours. Check out Hampshire specialists AB Crafts for a range of designs to cater for all your wedding stationery needs. Visit Be lucky Wearing a garter on your big day is an enduring tradition and ticks all the boxes if you’re a stickler for superstition. Great as your something new , you can add a touch of colour for your something blue , combine a piece of lace or fabric from a family heirloom as your something old and attach a lucky sixpence or something borrowed from a friend. Emily Smith of Weymouth-based Annamara custom makes designs to suit each bride’s needs. She says, “We use any colour options and different fabrics including the same material or lace to match the bride’s dress. The garters can be personalised too with the names and wedding date embroidered on to make an extra special keepsake.” Visit The sea was the inspiration for these beautiful earrings. Made from silver, rose gold or gold-plated wire with real freshwater pearls, they’re designed to be lightweight and delicate to gently skim the top of the shoulder for drama and movement.
