Q. I've chosen a simple dress, but I'm worried it's too plain. How can I make it my own?

A. Holly Berkley says: The wonderful thing about a simple dress is that it gives you so much scope to add accessories and details without it looking over the top. An understated gown is elegant and sleek, allowing your innate beauty to shine through. Why not add a beautiful hair adornment and matching necklace? Statement accessories teamed with pared-back dresses are very on trend.

We specialise in making hair accessories and jewellery that match perfectly. You can choose to go as bold or as simple as you like, and we have a wide colour palette to choose from. You could try matching the colour to your bridesmaids' dresses, or perhaps your best girls could wear simplified versions of your piece so you all coordinate.

We can incorporate family keepsakes into your accessories for a personal touch, or you may like to include pearls or crystals for that extra sparkle. We will help you every step of the way to design your ideal jewellery within your budget. The wonderful thing about having pieces made by a professional is that you can keep them forever and pass them on as a family heirloom.
