When you buy on the high street every person between you and the maker has to cover their costs and make a profit.
Manufacturing in England is also more expensive which is why, to keep things affordable, most accessories are made abroad in low wage economies.
When you buy your wedding accessories from Britten there is no one creating unnecessary costs between you and the skilled craftsperson creating your piece.
This makes a real difference to the pieces you buy. We can use the finest English made materials like Nottingham lace, Somerset tulles and London silks. We can package our pieces luxuriously and deliver direct to your door for free. We can treat every bride like our only bride by having the most amazing customer service (have a look at our reviews) and we can do all this from the ancient Britten building near Bath, England.
The finest wedding accessories in the world need the finest materials.
The lace we use to edge our veils makes a wonderful example.
It is English made, of course, on machines installed in the 1870's.
The family who produce this lace have owned the mill for 8 generations.
It's worth the investment as we found, in 6 months of looking, no finer lace in the world.
We love creating wedding veils & accessories and are obsessive about customer service; browse our many hundreds of reviews. If you have any questions before you order do get in touch, we are always happy to chat!
Made entirely in England our pieces are glamorous and timelessly elegant.
