In short, Britten give you so much to love. But today, we’re showcasing the latest pieces from Britten so, without further ado, let’s hear from Sarah Jane, who founded Britten in 2007 and still designs every piece today.
Sarah Jane graduated from the prestigious Cordwainers College and is unbelievably passionate about high quality craftsmanship. Here’s Sarah Jane to tell us more:

“We’re always adding to our collection and these new designs are inspired by our wonderful brides.”

“As our veils are ever popular, we wanted to expand the choice we offered to our brides so we’ve added a few different edging options with a beautiful simply braided edge in Nyla and a more statement horsehair edge veil with Atlas (pictured below).”

“We’ve also had a play with our lace placement and have created a few cut edge veils with lace around the train like Poppy. These appeal to brides who still want lace but don’t want their veil to detract from their dress.”

“Our Juliet cap veil collection has also been expanded and these veils are so popular with 1920s and 1930s style dresses. One of our favourite new designs is Saffron, a two-comb drape veil in silk style tulle. We also offer the option to personalise your veil so you can have your initials and wedding date hand embroidered to any part of your veil to make it extra special.”

“Veils can be a bit tricky to understand at first so we’ve written a comprehensive guide to wedding veils, which you can find on our website, and we always recommend brides buy our lace and tulle samples as colours on screen can vary from real life!”

“For our boho style brides, we’ve expanded our vine collection with some really intricate pieces like Mila, Sadie and Lori (pictured in that order below). These hand wired pieces take hours to make but we think the effect is worth it.”

“We’ve also created Lorna with a little bit of sparkle and this piece can be woven through your tresses so you just get glimpses of sparkle – a lovely effect. The Ginger vine is more of a glamorous piece and looks beautiful pinned to the side for real wow factor.”

“Our new jewellery includes bracelets, statement necklaces, back drop necklaces and earrings. We’re really excited about our lariat back drop necklaces and they look amazing with a backless dress or our Saffron drape veil.”

“For brides with a low neckline, we have created a few statement necklaces, Clover (below, top) and Avanie (below, bottom). We also couldn’t resist adding some tassel earrings. We love Pearl for a really decadent finishing touch.”

“Jewellery is a great way to add your ‘something blue’ without going overboard. We love these sweet flowers with a tiny Swarovski ‘something blue’ crystal twinkling in the centre.”

“Lots of our brides have requested a greater range of belt designs so we have created the Avani belt, the silver leaves are such a favourite with brides, and Rylee, which is a classic bridal combination of crystals and pearls. There are more to come so watch this space!”

“I think our favourite piece from the new collection has to be River, a lovely head chain design and we can’t wait to see lots of lovely brides styling this in lots of different ways. However, we’re adding new pieces to the collection all the time so there’s lots get excited about!”
