We are excited to introduce our first wedding accessories feature!
Meet Donna Baitey - owner and designer at Pearl & Blossom.
Donna believes every bride should have something unique to wear on her wedding day, something really special that shows her individual personality.
She tells us her story…
“I started making jewellery at the age of eleven. It’s something I’ve always done, even while studying for my degree in Graphic Design and working as an Art Director in advertising. When some of the girls in the office started getting married, I made headpieces for them to wear on their big day. All their wonderful comments made me feel like I was doing something worthwhile so, when I recently hit the big 3-0, I decided the time was right to concentrate on this obsession of mine and start doing what I love every day.
I’m a modern girl but I have a love for vintage things. So my headpieces and jewellery are hand crafted from a diverse range of materials, including beautiful Art Deco brooches, strings of antique pearls, vintage lace, tulle and crystals. Most of the items I make are one-offs, and every piece is handcrafted at my studio in London.
If you’re looking for something a little more personal, you can take advantage of my bespoke service. Many of my brides like to incorporate a brooch or something passed down from a family member; something beautiful that they might not otherwise have the chance to wear. I can custom-make a headpiece or a selection of accessories for you, and for your bridesmaids if you wish. First of all I’ll find out a bit about you, your wedding style and any ideas you may already have, before designing something exclusively for you.
I love how happy my brides are when they receive their bespoke designs. Reading their thank you emails is one of the best parts of my job”.
