Morning lovelies! Who’s thought about investing in a garter for their wedding day? I was lucky enough to be given my Mum’s as my ‘something blue’ and adored my hubby’s reaction when he saw it peeking our from under my gown as I hoisted up my dress through all the mud and rain!
But if you’ve not got a family heirloom to borrow, why not create one of your own and choose one of the beautiful garters from Madeline Isaac-James’ stunning collection. So elegant and timeless, they’re not only a great addition to your under-gown ensemble, but a wonderful piece to pass down to your own daughter…
An age-old tradition now with an appealing modern twist, created by Charlotte Russell at Atelier Rousseau, these stunning pieces are hand-made in Kent , using the finest fabrics from French Lace to soft silk dupion. Decorated with sumptuous details such as freshwater pearls, fine Swarovski crystal and silk satin ribbons, these garters are destined to be future heirlooms and are presented in beautifully inscribed gift boxes.
And there’s more; Madeline Isaac-James will also be stocking an irresistible range of “lucky horseshoes”. A traditional symbol of good luck and fertility, horseshoes have long been a symbol of the wedding ceremony and this collection takes lightweight horseshoes and gives them a new twist, with peal beads, silk satin ribbons and feminine detailing.
The new collection will be available at the Madeline Isaac-James boutique in Farnborough from November 1st and for pre-order from now. Find Madeline Isaac James designs at the two gorgeous boutiques in Farnborough and Ashford, or at selected retailers nationwide. See the full collection and stockist list on Madeline’s website
