Heidi loves to work with her customers to create individual pieces to be cherished for a lifetime and beyond. Her dream is to have one of her creations featured on the Antique Road Show. For anyone wishing her bespoke service the first step is to book an initial consultation which lasts for thirty minutes and is free. The consultation provides an opportunity to try different pieces and hairstyles and to chat with Heidi in a relaxed atmosphere. Heidi aims to help her customers choose their perfect accessory, the ultimate finishing touch for a perfect day. Heidi recommends that the outfit has already been selected at time of consultation so that she can ensure the piece created is appropriate and can echo features of the dress design if desired.
Heidi also creates signature bridal bouquets at an alternative to a traditional floral bouquet. Her bouquets are comprised of vintage broaches, pearls, diamante and family keepsakes of sentimental value and arranged to suit the bride’s specifications. These bouquets are created with love to be treasured for a lifetime and be they traditional, floral or gothic the only certainty is the bride won’t want to throw them away!
Heidi also offers workshops for anyone wishing to learn the basic skills of her craft.
For a special treat or treasured Christmas present Heidi’s hair pins start at £20 and hair combs at £60.
