wedding day bracelets

More often than not I come across posts on Facebook Groups from Brides to Be asking for suggestions and ideas for wedding gifts for Bridesmaids, Mother of the Bride, Best Man and Flowergirls. When buying gifts for all these guests the costs soon start adding up, so today I’d like to introduce you to Belle’s Charms! A great choice of charms and keepsakes that can be personalised as a memento of your Wedding Day and that says a special ‘Thank-You’ for being part of your Special Day. I took some time to find out from Louise about Belle’s Charms;



Why did you start Belle’s Charms?

I started Belle’s Charms as I thought there was a gap in the market for unique keepsake keyrings, jewellery & gifts.

What makes Belles Charms so unique and stand out?

Belle’s Charms are unique and stand out as they are made to order. If a customer requires a charm that I haven’t got, I am more than happy to go all out and find the charm they’re after.


What advice can you give to our brides to be when planning their wedding day?

My advice would for Brides to Be, is, shop around and not simply go for the easiest option, take your time on organising your big day.

What is your most favourite charm/ jewellery that you’ve made and why?

My favourite item to make is wedding bracelets, as I love talking to the Bride to Be and helping them out the best I can. I also love the idea that a part of me is attending their wedding, be it on a bridesmaid or flowergirl’s wrist.


What does the future have in store for Belle’s Charms?

I hope that Belle’s Charms continues with its success and I’d like to attend more wedding fairs in 2016.

How do brides buy from you?

It is easy to purchase from me. I invoice my customers via PayPal, (no account is needed), and they pay through PayPal or by card. It is all secure or another way to buy is through e-bay.


I’m sure you’ll agree that Louise produces some beautiful pieces that will make gorgeous keepsakes that are both special and individual for your Wedding Day.




Start Your Wedding Journey at John Titcombe Jewellery

Long before any of the planning and preparations for your wedding day start the journey begins someplace, somewhere with someone having to buy an engagement ring for the big proposal. This is a huge task in itself to get just right. Do you go big and ostentatious or more subtle? How much do you spend on an engagement ring? Do you decide on a solitaire diamond, or a diamond surrounded with emeralds? Whatever you decide you need to do your homework and do a bit of snooping with a lot of shopping around. When you find the one though, you’ll know.

How much do you spend on an engagement ring?

Well there is a tradition or saying that the Groom’s supposed to spend a months wage on the engagement ring! This day and age it’s down to personal preference as there’s a huge amount to choose from to suit everyone’s pocket. Keep in mind it’s the sentiment behind the ring that’s the important thing, not the amount you spend.

How do I know what size engagement ring to buy?

As for most men, the proposal is planned to be a big surprise so how on earth do you go about finding the right size before you go and buy the engagement ring. You can’t exactly measure someone’s ring finger without raising suspicion. You could always buy some cheaper costume jewellery and use that as an excuse, or try putting one of her other rings on your own ring finger and remember how far up your finger it goes.

What are the 4 C’s?

Make no mistake that the first step of the wedding journey of buying the engagement ring is a big task to get right and we haven’t even touched on things like; What’s the best shape of diamond for an engagement ring? What’s the most popular metal for an engagement ring? What about the slightly more technical elements of the 4 c’s of cut, colour, clarity and carat weight? That’s where finding a wedding jeweler that you are confident have the experience to be able to help and advise you.

The Affinity Collection by Claire Ogden Designs

I’m very pleased to announce the arrival of ‘The Affinity Wedding Garter Collection’ by Claire Ogden Designs to Moonrise Bridal Lingerie. The collection includes 3 individual designs from Claire to suit different styles from traditional tastes to a more modern contemporary touch.

Bridal Wedding Garter


All three of the bridal garters are a beautiful combination of jewellery and bridal lingerie. Each garter is lovingly handmade and unique in so much that there will only ever be one of its kind made, so the lucky bride who wears an Affinity Bridal Garter knows she has something very special. The collection is the reslut of a collaboration between Moonrise Lingerie and the award winning Claire Ogden Designs, who teamed up together to produce a very unique style of bridal wedding garters to give the modern day bride something special to treasure from her wedding day.


Speaking to Claire, she told us;

“My designs are very unique, I like to keep with the current fashions but create styles that have a life of their own and stand proud from the rest. The next step for me was to try a new challenge and after working on some lavish and outrageous chokers it seemed only natural to add this new addition to my bridal range. I am proud to introduce The Affinity Collection, by Claire Ogden Designs, Bridal Garters, all one of a kind and unique in their own right.”
