There has been some radio silence on the Arianna blog whilst our team have been rushed off their feet preparing for Harrogate earlier this week. The bridal show saw the launch of our newest collection, Wild Romance.
Now in our 19th year, we are continuing to create handmade, unique products for our boutiques and their brides. The latest collection has taken inspiration from the Parisian chic, seeing the brand take a turn for more fashion forward bridal looks, rather than keeping to tradition. Each piece in this collection has been carefully curated to give our brides an accessory which they can wear again and again, beyond their wedding day. The Wild Romance collection definitely makes a statement using intricate pearl and beading techniques to create an elegant and sophisticated bridal looks.
Needless to say, we're still incorporating traditional bridal looks into every collection so these statement pieces sit alongside more classic, timeless styles so that Arianna can offer something for everyone.
We've already had a huge response for our new styles over on the Arianna Instagram and we can't wait for the full collection to launch online soon, watch this space x
We recently introduced you to the lovely Eva Ashley Bridal who have bought into the Arianna Tiaras collection offering their bride's unique handmade accessories.
After making a number of pieces for them, they are now available in the 2 boutiques; Swansea and Tonypandy and the girls have taken some beautiful still life photography which they shared on their Facebook and Instagram pages ...
1 . AR522 Rose Gold Leaf Hair Vine - Cream Rose pearls, Silk crystal with Rose Gold Leaves
2. AR405 Traditional Pearl & Crystal Tiara - Ivory pearls, Silver Shade crystal on a Rhodium band
3. AR177 Tradtional Crystal & Diamante Tiara - Clear crystals on a Silver band
We can finally share some beautiful images from a 1920s vintage styled shoot by the super talented photographer Jessy Papasavva which featured a bespoke Titania draped headpiece we made for the flowergirl, AR546 and the Dina draped vine, AR579 worn by the bride to match her Sharon Bowen Dryden wedding dress.
Jessy wanted a picturesque countryside venue which had a building that would suit an elegant 1920s wedding and so the shoot took place at Shenley Cricket Centre, a hidden gem in Hertfordshire
The shoot will be featured in You & Your Wedding and you can read the full blog by Jessy here.

We made the beautiful Kalani hair vine using the white opal crystals. Meaning "the heavens" in Hawaiian the Kalani half halo has a Polynesian feel with its large leaves and floral accents. A multi use style, this piece looks great worn both at the back of the hair or across the front of the head as either a browband or headband depending on your bridal style.

Designer's Tip: "Pin at the top of a full length veil in the back of the hair for a beautiful wedding look"
Literally, how is it February 2019 already?? It's ridiculous how fast this this year is going so far which is good, but we have so much planning to do for the year ahead and would just like time to slow down a little.
We've been really busy designing and making pieces for our new 2020 collection and we will be giving our stockists a little sneak preview at the White Gallery London buying event in March which we're very excited about ... We're sharing the stand with our beautiful boho bridal brand Charlotte Balbier Bridal, eek!
We are also feeling very excited at HQ because we have now welcomed 2 more stockists to our family; The Silk Loft in Y Felinheli in North Wales and Eva Ashley Bridal Lounge who have a boutique in Tonypandy and Swansea.
We want to reach out to all of our beautiful brides who chose to wear one of our handmade pieces for their special day as we want to launch a 'real brides' page on our website, so if you're reading this then please send your pretty pictures into us via email to email@example.com or you can use our hashtag on social media #myariannatiara

"Add a touch of vintage sparkle to a low back dress to create extra interest to your wedding dress or party dress for the coming season!"
Your big day was a fairytale, the happiest day of your life. You looked beautiful; your dress, your accessories, but now you don't know what to do with them ...
Our headpieces have been designed to also make great heirlooms to be passed down to future brides as their something old, but what if you don't want your tiara to sit in a box only to take a peek once in a while? What if you could wear it all the time? (and not in secret like Monica from friends)
We offer a conversion service for our tiaras where, for a small fee, you can return your headpiece to us and we will turn it into a piece of jewellery of your choosing to wear again and again for special occasions!
This week we're absolutely loving the pearl and crystal Cressida Tiara, AR567. Beautifully handmade using pretty enameled filigree flowers in Ivory and marquise cut diamantes for a hint of sparkle.
Our lovely model Grace wears this in her half up half down hair style in Soft Gold with Cream Pearls and Light Silk Crystals, perfect for a country church wedding.
The thing we love about tiaras is that they look amazing worn on their own or paired up with a traditional veil, Cressida can also be hand-wired onto a hair comb as an alternative.
