With this ring…

When our lovely photographers, Suzy and Alex, worked some super speedy magic to give us a selection of sneak peaks of our wedding pictures less than 24 hours after the wedding even finished (?!), I knew I had do another wedding-themed post this week. And, because this is Tiding of Magpies, I’m sharing all the photos of the wedding jewellery…

So the other week I wrote about the jewellery I was going to wear, and this is what I ended up in:

Delicate, gold love-knot ring, Tiding of Magpies

As you can see, I decided against the cluster ring I originally made to wear on the day, since I was worried it would look a bit fussy when combined with dress and flowers. This design is an adaptation of my popular love-knot stud earrings, and will be available online just in time for Christmas, so watch this space… (I also wore the heirloom butterfly brooch on my bouquet – I’ll add a picture when we have the full wedding album, as I know Suzy took the accessories for a photoshoot while I was getting ready!

I also made the jewellery for my gorgeous bridesmaids (but of course): rose gold lariat necklaces with amusingly-named pearl potato beads (unevenly-shaped rather than perfectly round), and a rose-gold version of my pearl chain threader earrings:

You can also see my mum’s earrings here (something borrowed!)

I couldn’t leave the mums out of the wedding party jewellery bonanza, so I made sure they had thematically-matching pearl jewellery of their own. For my mum, pearl threader earrings in the original silver, and for The Goblin’s mum, a pearl brooch, since she doesn’t wear earrings and already had a string of pearls she wanted to wear:

I’m sure I’ll post more about the wedding at some point, but for now I’m just enjoying lying on the sofa and doing honeymoon prep with a glass of prosecco in hand, so I’ll leave you with one of my favourite shots from the day so far…
