Yvette was looking for elegant and glamorous bridal accessories with a vintage look that incorporated pearls. “When I met Julieann and her team, they were very kind and helpful. I was shown a few styles and as soon as I tried on the comb with the matching Purely Pendant Allure necklace, Allure earrings, and Allure flower bracelet, I just knew that they would be perfect with my dress.

I like the quality of the jewellery and the fact it was handmade gave it a personal touch.” Like many brides, Yvette decided that she would not be wearing a veil. “The Moonlight Tall Comb worked beautifully. The eye-catching comb was built on a curve so it didn’t appear to get lost in my hair.”

Heavenly headdress

Lily Tiara Comb

Hayley knew that she didn’t want a full bridal tiara. She was looking for a headdress that matched the detailing on her wedding dress and linked in with a pearl and diamante necklace she already had. “I came across Julieann Beads at the NEC National Wedding Show. I kept coming back to the stand to try on the Lily Tiara comb – it looked like a small tiara, but as it was a comb it was much more versatile. I felt that the comb would complement my dress and jewellery wonderfully!”

When Hayley’s comb was made, Julieann Beads carefully chose the shape of each pearl so that they matched the embellishment on her wedding dress. “I loved my headdress and would definitely recommend Julieann Beads to any bride-to-be.”

Gemma was struggling to find bridal accessories to match her lace, pearl and diamante wedding dress; she was searching for pieces that would enhance but not be too fussy and detract from it. When she found the Anya headband, it was a case of love at first sight. “The combination of pearls and crystal beading across the whole headband with the ornate diamante vintage design to one side, also dotted with pearls, was truly beautiful in its own right, and went perfectly with my dress.”

“I also couldn’t resist the Fiona earrings and Rachel necklace, plus the Allure flower bracelet that matched the Anya headband. I’ve worn the jewellery for other special occasions since, too. Julieann Beads clearly have a passion for their work and take pride in the pieces they create. The prices were very reasonable, especially given they are all handmade.”

Jo knew she wanted a pearl and crystal vintage-style wedding comb that she could wear on one side and the Lily tiara comb immediately caught her eye. “It was the perfect size and the fact that the diamante looked like petals made it look so elegant. The service I received from Julieann was also exceptional. Even though she was extremely busy that day, she took her time with me.”

To complement her statement comb, Jo added a simple Purely Pendant Allure necklace and a subtle pair of Moonlight Drop earrings. As thank-you gifts for her bridesmaids, she ordered them the same necklace but customised them with purple crystals to match their dresses.
