Hair Accessory and Brooch Bouquet Experiences
I've designed my hair accessory and brooch bouquet experiences with brides like you in mind. I know how it feels to have a calling to create and a desire for sentimental details and, equally, the frustration of not knowing how to begin or what to do if it goes wrong. I also appreciate that sometimes you need a quiet space when wedding planning is full-on and a creative activity is perfect to help you relax and recharge. My three hair accessory experience options support your desire to make your own accessory and save you from making costly mistakes by going it alone. From group sessions to one-to-one experiences, there is something for everyone who has a passion to create beautiful things, irrelevant of experience and talent. And yes, I really can help you create something similar to the images below!
Each workshop includes all materials, including Swarovski crystals and pearls in a range of colours, full tuition and support and a beautiful gift box to showcase your work like a professional. I can visit you at your home or chosen venue or you are always welcome at my home studio - the kettle will be on and cake is always available!
The Bride Tribe Experience
The smallest details are the ones we remember the most and a Bride Tribe experience is the perfect opportunity for you and your bridesmaids to relax and be creative, supporting each other and taking time to be together. It's a small moment that will stay with you forever. You'll experience a sense of calm when you get into the flow of making your hair vine, the perfect break from the crazy world of wedding planning. Take the time to reconnect with your girls in this experience, lasting around 2 hours.
My bridesmaids and I had a make your own hair accessory workshop. Sarah was very patient with us novices and helped us make a beautiful hair piece to wear on the special day. The items Sarah produces are just perfect and unique to the person to enhance those special touches. Thanks again!

Bride Tribe Experience: £40 per person
The VIP Bride to Be Experience
A more intimate experience where you will have my full support to design and create your own hair vine, hair comb or tiara. These sessions include a consultation and you'll have the chance to try on a range of my accessories to see the styles you like the most. I'll show you how to create more detailed elements and, if you have a piece of sentimental jewellery you'd like to include in your accessory, I'll help you to work around it and pick out the most important details. Your VIP experience will take around 3 hours but if you need more time, that's absolutely fine - we'll work to your pace to make sure that everything sits perfectly before we set your accessory in its box, ready for your special day.
This is a truly unique experience, which will allow you to take risks with the safety of my support to create something unlike anything else online or in the shops - a true reflection of your personality which will bring a smile to your face when you place it in your hair on your wedding day.
I had a workshop with Sarah to make a bridal hairband today. She was amazingly helpful and I came away with a beautiful one of a kind piece that I'm thrilled with. Thank you so much Sarah!

The Queen of Accessories Experience
My full hair accessory package is unlike any other and is perfect for brides who are thinking of designing not only their own hair accessory, but accessories for their bridesmaids too. We will work closely together, considering your hair type and that of your girls to make sure that you create something that suits each of your styles and personalities. This experience can combine different accessories, such as a tiara for yourself and hair pins for your bridesmaids, for example, so it gives you the option to be flexible in your choices. Your experience will last a whole day but if you feel you need more time, we can arrange that too - everything will go at the pace you need it to and, just like the VIP Bride to Be Experience, you'll have my complete support and training to make sure that you leave with beautiful accessories that will make completely unique thank you gifts for your bridesmaids.

The Brooch Bouquet Experience
New for 2018, I'm offering an exclusive brooch bouquet experience for brides who have been thinking of making their own brooch bouquet but have no idea where to start.
There are plenty of tutorials on line to make your own but, in my personal experience, I found that I spent much more money making the mistakes nobody told me about than if I'd taken a course. You'll have the benefit of my knowledge and experience, from adding delicate details to wrapping the handle - by far the trickiest part for me in the beginning!
I'll take you through the process, starting with where you can find the best brooches, which styles work best in a bouquet, how to use colour and things to avoid. I ask you to source the brooches, as this will reflect your personal style and encourage you to bring along any sentimental pieces of jewellery you may have from friends or relatives. I provide all other materials, along with five additional brooches, which I'll select based on your ideas as a surprise, your something blue and a watch face to sit in your bouquet, set to the time of your wedding.
Your experience will include a beautiful gift box, so you can protect and transport your bouquet in style. This workshop is incredibly valuable for anyone considering making brooch bouquets in the future, so you can take your new found skills and knowledge beyond the workshop.
Your experience will be booked in sessions due to the time it takes to make a bouquet. Each session will take around 5 hours, although we can arrange shorter sessions if you prefer. The price quoted reflects the whole experience, irrelevant of how many sessions you need.
Guide price: £200
The Brooch Bouquet Surgery
The brooch bouquet surgery was designed for brides who had started their brooch bouquets but needed advice on fixing specific elements they were struggling with. You don't need to go it alone and I'll be more than happy to book you in for an hour-long session to help you get back on track, whatever stage you're at.
Price per session: £35
