Tell us a little about yourself
Established in 2010, LeFlowers Bridal specialises in handcrafted, bespoke floral headpieces, vintage sashes, unique garters and other accessories. I have always had a passion for design and love to be creative. I absolutely love my work, which occupies most of the day and sometimes weekends and nights (I’m dedicated to my cause!). I’m just so grateful to be doing what I love, thanks to my family, husband and 2 my daughters the joy of my life, as they support me and allow me the unrestricted freedom to express myself.
If you had a chance to go to any music festival, which would it be?
Given the chance, it’d have to be Glastonbury! It’s just so huge and diverse, totally my kind of festival.
What inspired LeFlowers Bridal?
The Victorian era, the era of elegance and my absolute favourite. My passion resides in fashion museums, where you’ll find costumes and accessories from the 17th right through to the 20th century exhibited. Rich with embroidery, completely hand-sewn in delicate lace; this is no ordinary work, but masterpieces of art. They reflect the fantasies and incredible imagination of the people of these eras. These extraordinary handmade creations inspire me every time!
Tell us a little about your products
A collection of chic wedding accessories with that shabby edge, a rustic charm inspired by vintage pieces; that’s the essence of LeFlowers.
I love to create limited edition accessories. Often with the materials I employ, there is a limited quantity of the chosen lace or embellishments, making them wholly unique and impossible to recreate, I love one-of-a-kind feel, it’s so special for a bride.
All the flowers are carefully crafted by myself: each petal is hand cut and hand singed one-by-one. The majority of the lace pieces I bead myself and almost all of the headpieces and sashes are entirely made to order.
What can I say?! I just adore what I do!
Incredible, so what sort of timespan can brides expect?
All pieces are made to order, so it takes between 1 and 2 weeks to hand craft them, plus delivery time.
Do you have a favourite item in your collection?
Right now I must say, I’m besotted with my new collection; Vintage Sunshine. Strongly inspired by nature, it’s awash with floral and leafy elements, soft, organic shapes that sweep across the hair.
The Vintage Sunshine collection is made from lace and Swarovski crystals, with beautiful opal crystals in soft greys and champagne tones. It also features luscious pearls and antiqued silver details, it’s sheer boho bridal gorgeousness!
If I had to pick a favourite, it’d be one of the hairpieces with branches, leaves and rhinestones. I love how natural they look!
Finally, what’s your favourite, inspiring quote?
Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working – Pablo Picasso
And my life’s mantra is simple; just do everything with love.
