Which Avani bracelet is your favourite?

Our beautiful Avani leaf design is always a popular choice amongst our brides, so naturally we have decided to expand the range and have some lovely new pieces to show you all! One of our favourites is the gold plated leaf and freshwater pearl 'Avani mini' bracelet. This is such a delicate design that can be worn day or night. 

Also part of the Avani collection we have our gold and silver Avani leaf bracelets that perfectly match our plated leaf Avani hair vine and halo - we hope you love them as much as we do! x

*New* Gold flower wedding belt - 'Caris'

We are so excited to show you all our new gorgeous ivory 'Caris' wedding belt. With our off white style being so popular we thought it was only right to introduce a new ivory shade. Handmade beautiful blooms formed from crystals and pearls float on a band of elasticated ivory velvet which fastens via a simple buckle, it is the perfect way to add detail to any gown! x

What are the combs like on our drop veils?

We often get asked what the combs are like on our drop veils. We use silver plated combs which are approx 7.5cm in width. We use metal combs as they are sturdier than their counterparts and are more secure in your hair, we then wrap the comb in ribbon to match your hair colour so that the veil appears to float in your hair. We take great pride in our veils and the comb attachment is no exception. Please see a few images below of how we attach our veils to combs.

Britten Bride Daisy

Daisy & Mat were lucky enough to hold their big day in the grounds of Daisy's dads stunning house in Bagnols En Forêt in Provence. They were spoilt for choice on where to hold their ceremony in the beautiful gardens of the house but finally settled on a perfect spot amongst the trees. They married under stunning rustic french doors draped in olive branches and gypsophil, this was such an effective idea that gave a real unique feel to the decor. 

Originally Daisy wasn't sure if she would wear a veil on the day, however she changed her mind once she tried our gorgeous cathedral length, cut edge Isabella veil, and we think she looks just perfect! x

"I didn’t think I’d wear a veil but the lovely Britten changed my mind – their veils are exquisite and I fell in love with their Isabella cathedral length veil, which completed my bridal look."

This is so wonderful to hear Daisy, we hope you had a perfect day! x

Britten Bride Nicola

There is nothing better than a cosy winter wedding filled with deep red hues,glowing candles and beautiful arrangements of berries and wild rubus. Nicola and her new husband Craig created a true Scottish ambience with touches of tartan in the groomsmen ties and bottles of whisky for the wedding guest favours, such a lovely personal touch to their day.

Nicola looks so beautiful in her beaded Jenny Packham dress paired with our cut edge single tier Niacae veil. It was the perfect match and completed her look perfectly! 

"I was over the moon with the exquisite quality of her accessory, not to mention the gorgeous packaging it came in, including a handwritten note and a scented candle for the morning of the wedding; such a treat to open." Thank you so much for your lovely words Nicola x

Modern Victoriana inspired photoshoot

Britten has been lucky enough to be involved in a beautifully elegant photo shoot held in 'The Horniman Museum and Gardens' in South East London. The shoot is filled with gorgeous blooms and drapped silks - a perfect scene for our accessories to shine. The photos were perfectly styled by Lovestruck Weddings and we couldn't be happier with the results! x

Bride in blue

What a wonderfully happy picture of one of our gorgeous brides! We are loving the unique style of her wedding day look. Opting for a vibrant blue long sleeve top and chic cream skirt, such a fun way to personalise your wedding outfit. For that bridal touch she has added our lace mantilla wedding veil, Adela. Also how cool do her bridesmaids look in their floral prints? x

Meet the Britten team!

Creating bridal accessories can be very high pressure and Britten is certainly very busy but working with brides is great and everyone has a lot of fun!

A typical day at Britten starts with coffee, only very occasionally is it made by Ian. Once orders have been organised and everyone knows the plan the team settle in with only frequent battles over the office music to distract them.

Often the boutique will host an appointment; brides are always fascinated to see where their veils and accessories will be created..

As the day draws on and courier pickup draws closer online orders are sorted and carefully prepared to be sent to brides. Once they are safely on their way everyone has a little time to catch up and sort out ready for creating more fabulous accessories tomorrow! x
