Notes from Victoria Fergusson
The Botánica Collection is inspired by lush and exotic botanicals such as ferns, palms and giant water lily. Think Kew Gardens, think Victorian Hot Houses, the architecture as well as the plants themselves have influenced the designs. Brides can choose from delicate hairpin sets, petite combs and unique headdresses, available in gold, rose-gold and silver colour ways with accents of silver shade and white opal crystals.

Notes from Victoria Fergusson
The Treasured collection is designed to offer exquisite stand-alone pieces with the option to combine multiple pieces together; so creating either subtle or high impact looks.
Inspired by classic tiaras and jewels from legendary design houses such as Tiffany & Co, Cartier and Faberge, the Treasured collection comprises of wedding embellishments that can be set as combs, clips, hairpins, brooches, headdresses or even dress appliques.
Inspired by nature and classic Grecian style, the Goddess Collection (I know, the name alone right…?) by Victoria Fergusson is comprised of over 20 eye catching pieces, from heavily embellished headdresses to delicate earrings, the collection offers brides a range of elegant timeless accessories to be treasured (and worn) long after the big day itself!
Victoria’s skilful design and clever use of materials has created a number of different bridal looks within the collection – from the fabulous outfit transforming Aurora belt to showpieces such as the Hera headdress. Freshwater pearls and matt sequins have been masterfully used to create soft and pretty accessories – ideal for a relaxed Bohemian bride, whilst a number of striking architectural pieces – made with the finest Swarovski crystals in a myriad of shapes and patterns, make the perfect accessory for a bride seeking a show- stopping piece to finish off her look.
Each piece from the collection is handmade using the finest wirework and embroidery techniques. Combined with Victoria’s use of luxurious materials such as silk tulle, wool grosgrain ribbon, Freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and matt pearl sequins, each piece is a true work of art, made with love by Victoria from her quaint workshop located in the heart of Wiltshire.
So, scroll down for some lustworthy-inspiration and top bridal accessory tips from the lady herself!
Notes from Victoria Fergusson Bridal Accessories
My story started when I was planning for my own wedding whilst studying Costume & Make-up for the Performing Arts, the two worlds became a little entwined and I realised my skills could be put to perfect use in the world of weddings.
So now I get to work with Brides – creating their make-up & hair look and designing bridal accessory collections; including headdresses, hair combs & pins, belts and jewellery. I absolutely love working with Brides on these smaller details of their day.
