Separate bridal pieces that match seamlessly, are a great way to go from a daytime ceremony to an evening reception.

Hi Everyone, What an exciting month we have had! First of all we had the Local Women Business Awards back on June 18, and what a night it was. Everyone looked absolutely stunning and I would just like to say a huge congratulations to all the winners as well as those shortlisted on the night – it’s a great achievement to be named and recognised for the fabulous work you do, so well done!

Secondly we had the absolute honour of being one of the main sponsors of the event. It was a very special night for us as we launched our rebranded sister store, Hall & Guild Specialist Jewellers (formally known as Bank Square Jewellers Maghera and No.8 Jewellers, Cookstown). And finally, I had the absolute honour of judging the best dressed lady of the night. This was a very challenging decision as everyone in attendance, including the men, went all out and I have to say the style stakes were high. Sometimes
beauty and glamour is much more than just the dress and on the night one stunning lady, Mrs Dorothy Campbell stole the show for me. Dorothy was
awarded one of Hall & Guild Specialist Jewellers Pendants, and was a worthy and graceful winner. It was an honour to meet her, so congratulations again to Dorothy.

So what are the bridal trends this coming season? Spaghetti Straps, two pieces and soft tulle skirts in abundance! TV Star and stunning fitness guru Amanda Byram was right on trend at both her London and Maldives wedding ceremonies. In true celebrity style Amanda pulled out all the stops and had two ceremonies to make sure it was done right!

Amanda wore a Flora designer wedding dress for her London ceremony which was a backless gown with long lace sleeves and a soft flowing tulle skirt. Her hair was softly lifted and adorned with an elegant but quaint pearl hairpiece. She got everything right for her small family wedding affair.

For her more relaxed beach Maldives wedding ceremony she wore another Flora designer two piece. The same soft tulle skirt this time with a quirk midi top with spaghetti straps – perfect for any destination wedding.
