It was a grey and drizzly Glasgow but on Sunday I travelled to the beautiful Briggait set along the Clyde, an old fish market, the Briggait, set with all it's splendour, played host to The Glasgow Wedding Collective.
A carefully curated wedding show for the unique bride who want to support independent designers and businesses. And boy do they know their stuff! Not being engaged, with any hopes of being married any time soon, I was interested in the jewellers they had to show, although my eyes did wander to the vintage wedding dresses and shoes and the stunning floral displays, but I was mainly there for the jewellers.
Alumni Inker, Scarlett Erskine was showing her wears, a collection of jewellers for brides to be, bridesmaids, mother of the brides and of course the gents. I loved Scarlett's use of champagne corks in order to display some of her unique engagement rings.
Ebba Goring returns to her first show since having her baby daughter and she returns with new textures, new designs ideas and new additions to her collection. Aiming for the fine jewellery market, Ebba's work will lend itselft beautifully to gold and diamonds.
Katie Lees is definitely for the edgy bride. Currently working on her new collection she offered up some sneak peeks along with the firm favourites. The cufflinks were a personal favourite for the clean cut, styled groom.
Sarah Brown entices you in with her carefully displayed jewellery adding an earthly beauty to her display with her use of bell jars, ferns and wood. Sarah thinks of every aspect of her her service from the jewellery to the box.
Finally Alison Macleod with her vintage chic jewellery for the classic bride. Playing homage to the classic beauty with the addition of a splash of colour, texture and beads to stir up elegance and sophistication. Her addition of vintage boxes is lovely gesture to complete the service.
