Vivien J Bridal Accessories
We first entered the world of weddings back in 2008 after designing and making accessories for a close family wedding and we’ve been creating bridal jewellery and hair accessories ever since, growing our collection as well as our love for weddings.
We adore every piece that we create from our studio and we’re passionate about making sure brides sparkle their way down the aisle on their special day. There is something so special about being part of a bride’s journey and we’re always feeling inspired. As a tight-knit mother and daughter team, we understand the range of emotions that go into planning a wedding which is why we are always on hand to chat to our brides about their order and big day details. If you’re looking for a bespoke order, we can tweak each design to make sure it’s the perfect accessory for you and your big day.

Dreaming of escaping the daily grind of conventional living in search of a more free-spirited lifestyle..? Yep, us too! While running away to the hippie hills may be off limits, injecting a little Bohemia into your life is a great way to express your inner soul.
Bohemian Beats is one of our fave venue style categories and if you find yourself being drawn to these barefoot locations then Zoe Wells, founder of The Boho Booth, shares her seven steps to being more boho.
Unleash Your Inner Bohemian
Rock the boho look, Bohemian fashion is a means of expression and nothing says boho chic better than braided hair, floaty florals, ripped denim, fringing and brightly coloured clothing embellished with glitter and jewels.
Go barefoot when the weather permits, kick off your shoes and enjoy the freedom of going barefoot – not only is it good for your feet, it’s great for the soul.
Embrace the great outdoors. A walk in nature is often referred to as the best medicine. Escaping the four walls and electrical havens of our homes and offices for a stroll in the park is a sure-fire way to de-stress and reconnect with our inner selves.

Choosing the right partners and brands to work with is super important to us. Much like our carefully curated collection of wedding venues, we want to be surrounded by wedding suppliers who inspire us and suit our own ethos because we feel this will inspire you, our readers.
As well as providing wedding inspiration and good solid advice, I think it’s important you get to know our venues and chosen partners so today, we’re having a little nosey around the new Prezola HQ which is located in the truly beautiful City of Bath.
Prezola is the UK’s leading independent wedding gift list service, designed for modern style-savvy couples who want the widest choice possible. We love their creative heart and knew a little peek inside their office would set the interior-pulse racing! Bath-based Wedding Photographer Emma from Heart Full of Tea popped round to take some snaps for us and it’s all rather lovely.
Notes from Prezola
My husband Dom and I launched Prezola in 2010 from our house and since then, we’ve grown to include more than 30,000 products from 300 top brands on the site. Couples can mix gifts, experiences, charity donations and honeymoon funds on their list with free delivery of their gifts after the wedding. We now have a large office in the centre of Bath with over 50 members of staff – the business has grown so fast in the last seven years!
Our new Prezola HQ is a traditional Georgian townhouse where the windows and ceilings are huge on the ground floor, and get smaller and smaller as you go up the stairs – typical build for when there were servants on the top floor back in the day! As the company has expanded, we needed to move to a larger location since we were all cramped in the warehouse in Wiltshire. We still operate the packing and deliveries from the warehouse (and even expanded into a few more!) but the majority of the company now works in Bath.
Fridays are all about gearing up for a weekend of wedding shenanigans right…? Whether it’s viewing venues, trying on dresses, hunting for those perfect suppliers or finalising details. Well today I wanted to chat stationery, but specifically stationery that involves two of my fave brands in the industry…
Emmy London by Cutture : Ready-to-Write Stationery
Emmy London, the renowned shoe and accessory designer and Cutture the brand famed for producing world class event stationery, are thrilled to announce the launch of an exclusive range of ready-to-write wedding stationery.
The exquisite collection combines the intricate detail from Emmy London’s stylish designs teamed with Cutture’s signature laser cut techniques. Drawing upon heritage and exceptional craftsmanship synonymous with both brands, the suite is produced using traditional foil printing methods, with gold edging in a pretty colour palette of vellum, green and natural. The stationery includes everything from save the date cards, invitations and table numbers to beautifully detailed escort cards and thank you notelets.

The Boho & Retro Wedding Festival
While there are many wonderful wedding fairs out there for newly engaged couples, I have never been to one quite like The Boho & Retro Wedding Festival at Bridwell Park. Organised by the fabulous team at Blue Fizz Events, the festival offered an eclectic, inspiring and quite frankly awesome mix of wedding suppliers. It was a brilliant opportunity to meet heaps of talented exhibitors, as well as the chance to explore the magnificent Bridwell.
The family home of Lord Ivar Mountbatten, Bridwell is cushioned in the quaint village of Uffculme in Devon. It’s surrounded by stunning parkland and extensive views of the rolling countryside. It is quite simply put, a beautiful country house wedding venue. Available for exclusive-use, Bridwell has 20 bedrooms onsite so it’s perfect if you want a huge weekend celebration with your family and friends. Both The Orangery and The Chapel were open for viewing over the weekend, and both were just bursting with romance, style and grandeur. The vast outdoor space also lent itself perfectly for a festival full of imagination and inspiration…
