I just found a lovely real wedding article, featuring a wonderful couple in Bristol where my Ulrica earrings get a little mention! The bride looks gorgeous in the photographs, taken by wedding photographer Sam Gibson, and it turns out that she was given the earrings as a gift. How wonderful that she wore them on the day. Please see below for full credits.

The wedding was in 2012, so hardly hot off the press, but I was delighted for the mention. Thank you to Monique Trulove from French Wedding Style for crediting me. Please go to the full article here and view the rest of their wonderful day.

    Oh my goodness me! I was just having a peep on your website looking for some fab earrings that I could suggest to my husband that he might like to get me for Christmas when I came across this post on your blog and what a lovely surprise to see that it was about our wedding ! Funny thing is that only yesterday I was having a nostalgic peek at my wedding earrings and thinking how gorgeous they were.

      Hi Brigitte,
      Thanks for stopping by! (which earrings were you going to ‘suggest’ he buy for you – sorry, I’m just nosey!).
      How strange that you happened upon that post. I had no idea that pictures of your wedding were online (and gorgeous, to boot), and literally stumbled across them the other day, only for you to stumble across that. Small world, as they say :)
      I am always delighted to find out what happens to my jewellery after it’s been sent off to it’s new owner, and a wedding is the most magical of all (I told you I was nosey).
      Do drop me a line if you need any help, jewellery-wise. Your blog is lovely, by the way :) x

      Hi Brigitte, what a lovely coincidence! If your husband does decide to get you a little something, ask him to mention this, so I know who you are :)
