Art deco weddings

Yes of course we love the 1920's, art deco is 'the' influence on Britten wedding accessories! Since we launched our new website in March we lost some old blog posts and it's easy to miss these gorgeous images from You & Your Wedding Magazine in their March/April edition. They feel a bit like a shoot from WED magazine that featured our products last year - I'll repost that one too soon - and are a little bit film noir.

The title shot features our flagship product, the Chia wedding feather fan while the second image stars the gorgeous Peita wedding headband.

A Bangkok wedding!

"Thank you for creating such a beautiful bridal accessories and bringing it here for me :)"

Feather fan delivery to Bangkok!If you follow our Twitter or Facebook feeds you may have noticed that Britten had a little trip around the new year to Singapore and Bangkok, we posted pictures of a package we carried around south east Asia for nearly 10 days before delivering it to a customer in Bangkok!
The picture on the right is just before delivery in the Sofitel SO hotel, Bangkok (highly recommended by the way!).
So excited now to bring you some gorgeous images from the wedding itself, congratulations Kultida!

Did you know some of our wedding headbands can be worn as belts?

Our ZoieDarcyPeita and Ila bridal headbands can all be worn as belts too! This makes them super versatile and means you can change your bridal look from day into night.You can also use them to pretty up any outfit which means they can be worn again after the big day!

Lovely feedback from one of our beautiful brides!

One of our wonderful brides, Amy got in touch last year to request a bespoke piece. After a few meetings we came up with a deco style statement feather headpiece which complimented her dress beautifully. We loved the final product so much we decided to add it to our collection and call it Amy. Amy got in touch after her wedding with these lovely words.

"After speaking with Sarah and visiting her Cotswold studio, she came up with a template for my bespoke headpiece. I had full confidence that Sarah understood what I wanted, even though I only had a small picture to show her as inspiration. The piece was delivered in a beautiful white box with ribbon and handwritten note. I was so pleased with Sarah's attention to detail - she had incorporated a beading pattern that perfectly complimented my jewellery! Everyone complimented my beautiful headpiece and I was so proud to be wearing a Britten original!"

We love hearing from our brides, please get in touch to hello@brittenweddings.com
