A Royal Occasion – The Royal Wedding 2018

Written by Becks     |    May 2018

 

“Two young people fell in love and we all showed up” Bishop Michael Curry

So many people excitingly gathered together to see the young, royal couple make their vows on Saturday 19th May 2018. From the coverage around the UK and the rest of the world, along with the sound of the almighty cheers from the crowds lining the streets, the royal couple have clearly touched so many lives, and will continue to do so with their relatable personalities and interests. And what a beautiful sight to behold.

Prince Harry & Meghan had carefully chosen every element of their celebration. Each detail holding special significance to the couple and their union. The breathtaking result? Their true love shone through. In the words of Prince Harry “The stars have aligned”.

We take a look at the individual elements the couple chose in keeping with many traditions, but with a subtle contemporary twist to make their perfect day;

  • to honour the memory of loved ones.
  • reflect their values and personality.
  • and to give us an enchanting insight to the royal couple’s love.

The inherent beauty of handmade

YOUR PERFECT HANDMADE #CosyChristmas

The inherent beauty of handmade

Written by Becks     |   28th Nov 2017

There is a natural, inherent beauty and charm with handmade. It speaks of boundless love.

Whether it is a handmade:

  • deliciously edible gift
  • cosy item of clothing
  • luxurious pampering treat
  • or an exquisite piece of artwork

It says a lot about the giver. Emphasising the personal thought and dedicated time that has gone into making the beautiful, one-of-a-kind gift. Creating that gorgeous, warm, fuzzy feeling, for the giver as well as the recipient. Chosen and made especially for them. Transforming ordinary, everyday materials into something extraordinary. Full of meaning and made with love.
