  1. All the wedding accessories on the site are designed and made by Debbie Howe.

    I have a wonderful space for my workshop in the village of West Butterwick.

    I strive to create new designs, I want them to be different to the run of the mill wedding idea's out there!

    Although I do create my designs I do also welcome idea's from customers. If you have an idea in your mind please do share it with me, I'm sure together we can design something.

    If you have a special item of clothing or maybe a trinket then choose the design you like and I will tell you how I can include your fabric or special trinket.

    I've lots of different idea's in my shop or create your own!

  2. Are you looking for something to hold your wedding rings on your wedding day but don't want a ring cushion? 

    Well these super cute ring bags could be just the ticket. They are small enough for a child to hold  onto as they can slip their hands through the ribbon handles. Also perfect for the best man to slip into his pocket.

    Both sides are sprinkled with Swarovski AB crystals and they are blooming gorgeous! They really do capture the light and give a wonderful sparkle. Add a bit of extra bling to your wedding day!

    Made in a white or ivory duchess satin and at £19.99 they won't break the bank!

  3. Our Rebecca design is a gorgeous garter and as you can see very photogenic!

    The Swarovski pearls & crystals are a real stunner in the sunshine. It's made from a nice soft lace and so will fit fairly flat against the leg under the wedding dress. The blue of the pearls is a beautiful shade and perfect for the brides 'something blue'.

    To give the garter an extra special touch you can also choose to have it personalised or add a sixpence bag. The embroidery will be made in the same shade of blue as the pearls.

    More details can be seen on the shop page.

  5. Did you know we make all our garters from scratch? This means that if you like a design but would like a different colour bow or embroidery then that can happen! We have hundreds of shades available in the ribbons and many different colours to choose from in the pearl beads.

    Make a note when ordering of the changes you would like and we will make it happen! 

    An example is below. Nova has beautiful blush pink pearls & ribbons but these can both be changed to any colour at all. We literally have hundreds of different shades available. Be adventurous and have 2 or 3 colours!

  6. This is a special tartan set I designed & made for a lovely customer. Made using 'Johnstone' tartan which was supplied to me by my customer. The dolly bags are lined with an ivory satin with the outer layer in tartan. The petals on the flower are hand stitched to form the matching flower with navy stitching. Perfect for the brides 'soemthing blue'. To finish the set off is a bridal pin with a lucky silver sixpence and matching satin bows.

    My customer was over the moon at how this set turned out.

  7. Hi, I hope you are all keeping well & staying safe during Covid-19.

    Several weeks in and it's all still so surreal. I'm lucky that I live in a lovely quiet village in West Butterwick, Lincs, away from too much hustle & bustle. Just me & the doggy. I have a large workshop attached to my house. Many years ago it was infact the village post office, so plenty of room and no need to travel to work!

    Work, although quieter, has carried on pretty much as normal. A lot of my weddings are being postponed for several month's, most until next year.

    For anybody that has had a wedding garter from me with a wedding date embroidered but are now having to postpone I can change the embroidery for you for a small fee to cover costs & postage. Please do get in touch if you would like this.

    If you have any questions regarding orders or delivery times please do contact me, I'm always happy to help.

    The dog and I are enjoying lots of countryside walks, the odd bbq or two and a little gin. (That's me drinking the gin, not the dog!)

    For now enjoy the sunshine & extra time spent with family and most of all stay safe.

  8. A few weeks ago I added my 'Meadow' garter to the site and it has proved to be a best seller on the site. A simple but very pretty wedding garter

    I had a wonderful thank you card with a gift inside from my customer when she recieved her order. Such a lovely surprise, thank you Lesley x

    Thank You

     

    As the lace is so pretty I decided 3 simple pearls was all that was needed on the front. This is an affordable garter at just £12.99 but has the option to have extra's added as detailed below.

    It is still custom made and so if you need an extra small through to a plus size that is no problem at all, just let me know a leg measurement and I will make to fit especially for you.

    It looks lovely as it is or extra's can be added which include a sixpence bag (genuine sixpence coin included) and personalisation at £4.00 each.

  9. Top of my to do list for 2020 was to start making personalised handkerchiefs. I've turned so many customers away over the years but I simply didn't have time to fit them in.

    I've kept my first design nice and simple with a delicate bow & 3 Swarovski rhinestones to add just a touch of sparkle.

    This design is embroidered with 'Bride' but I can also embroider with a name, initials or wedding date.

    As customers order them I will add more photo's and design. More details HERE

    I hope you like x

  10. I'm often asked if I can make a design using an item of clothing from something very special and the answer is yes!

    Jade asked me to incorporate her grandmothers dress into a garter for her daughter's wedding. Jade decided on 'Tilly' blue lace garter and I set to work. I managed to use the belt from the dress as it was a long enough fabric to use without having any joins in it. The dress itself was a beautiful blue floral organza, gorgeous but very slippery to work with. I've trimed the blue lace with Swarovski rhinestones and then added the organza running through the centre of the garter. The result was lovely and I had a very happy customer who sent me a wonderful review on guest book page.
