If we ALL embrace change, look after the planet and each other imperfectly, it will be so much better than a few of us doing it perfectly.
Small steps can lead to big change.
This is our ethos for The Ethical Wedding Show. We don't expect every couple to be doing absolutely everything ethically, just trying to take steps to make a difference.
The same applies to our suppliers. We can't all do everything perfectly.
This is why we have created a 5 point criteria for them - and we want them to have ticked at least 3 to be part of our shows.
These are: 🌍SUPPORTING LOCAL – to bring down their carbon footprint, to support communities and small businesses here in the UK.
🌎NO SINGLE USE PLASTIC – reducing plastic use overall and cutting out single use plastic
🌎BEST RECYCLING PRACTICES – using recycled materials, and recycling afterwards
🌍CARING FOR WILDLIFE – adding a large vegan choice, not using chemicals that harm nature, and generally loving the planet
🌍SUPPORTING OTHER ECO INITIATIVES – supporting charities, reducing waste, donating after the day, excellent working practices, hand making items that last forever….. The show is on March 29th 2020 - and we are SO EXCITED! Do tag someone engaged that may be interested!
The swooping setting of this ring was inspired by Toyo Ito’s design for the Tama Art Library. I love the dramatic reveals of the diamonds and the contrast of straight and curved lines. To top it off, this ring was used for a proposal at another library - the Morgan here in NYC.

Did you know ? Small diamonds in professional jargon are called “ Melee diamonds “ - anything from half a point up to 15 points ( 1 carat = 100 points) .
Iris ring is all about Melee Diamonds hence its beauty and delicacy ❤️😊

This very special engagement ring was designed for my lovely clients in advance of their wedding next year to celebrate 20 years together. They have two beautiful girls, a lovely home and have lived in several countries together. But never got married. ⠀
Never having had an engagement ring before we had to make something truly stunning after all these years. I sourced them several beautiful diamonds and it was this stunning E/Si1 diamond that caught her eye. She wanted something delicate and feminine that still made a statement. She also knew that she wanted the marquise and round pattern on her wedding ring so that informed the whole design of the halo and band on the engagement ring. We also tucked a tiny blue Ceylon sapphire underneath the setting and there are hidden diamond details on the basket underneath the diamond.⠀
Even though she knew the ring was coming he booked a night out at the Hilton and a romantic dinner by the Harbour to propose to his partner and soulmate of nearly 20 years. And of course she said yes.⠀
Thank you both for inviting me to design such a long awaited ring. I hope it brings you a sparkling joy every day for the next 20 years and way beyond. 💎

We’re all for easy to wear, easy to dance and easy to do whatever the fuck you want really, it’s your day why restrict it? No one wants their bridesmaid in the cubicle with them.

Wedding dress shopping is SUCH an emotional experience & it can be hard to make the commitment for some brides. Saying YES is a big deal, and you can get wrapped up in other people’s opinions as well as your own!
What we always say is this: Think about how you FEEL. How did you feel looking at yourself? How did you feel swooshing about & practice walking & imagining yourself walking down the aisle towards your soon-to-be husband or wife?
We are still on cloud nine after getting married on Friday! We had the best day of our lives surrounded by such amazing friends and family who just made the day so extra special for us. Thank you to everyone who came or sent love, we feel so so lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives!
Another massive thank you is to our wonderful photographers @the_wild_bride - Jon and Emilie were just perfect. It was like spending a day with friends and we love the sneak peeks! 🥰 More wedding spam will be incoming for days to come 😂 .

How to choose the perfect, alternative commitment ring
If a traditional solitaire or plain wedding band isn't for you, here are my top tips to help you choose: • Do your research - all my stockists* are alternative commitment ring specialists - look at their websites or better still visit their showrooms to find a great range of unique work by fantastic designers. • Found something online? Now go try on some rings! You won’t know if it suits you or if you really love it until you see it on your hand. It's always best to ring up first in case you need to make an appointment. •Take photos: try on loads of rings and take photos of everything you really like on your finger so you can review them later. • Are you and your partner looking for matching rings? Couples don't always share the same taste in rings! You can link the two rings in other ways: choosing different designs from the same maker; choosing complimentary pieces from different designers; or engraving a unique inscription inside each ring • Are you looking for an engagement ring to sit next to a wedding band? Consider how the two rings would sit together, whether you want them to be intentionally matching or contrasting designs that work well next to each other - it's best to work these things out in the first instance
Happy hunting! #howto#jhwhowto#commitmentrings#alternativeengagementring#alternativeweddingrings#alternativebride#catchinglight#metamorphicfinejewellery#johayesward

Bespoke, exclusively #byCvB // Lil sneak peek of this Deco inspired “Zoe” Halo stunner under the romantic autumn sunlight, shown in platinum with custom French Cut black spinel, which is more durable & appropriate for a daily wear ring, as opposed to onyx...yet still provides the same effect; at the center is a freaking fabulous 1.31ct GIA H/si1 glitter ball of a transitional Old Euro Cut diamond.
Someone’s bride is sure to be very, very pleased.
This ring is sold, though please contact me via DM, or at the links in my bio, to learn more about this fun & exciting bespoke or custom creation process.
It is so fun getting to relive this day with our photos from @jennifermcnabbphotography_. To be honest, I'm surprised that I didn't pass out because of the heat, excitement and lack of breakfast! •
Speaking of breakfast, Saturdays require waffles...
