Another trend we've seen on the rise is minimalist wedding jewellery. This less-is-more approach is great for brides who want to make sure they can enjoy their jewellery after their wedding day. We always try to encourage this. Wedding jewellery is special and sentimental, we want brides to be able to wear the pieces for years after and be reminded of the event.

Something I always suggest before starting your jewellery shopping is to look at your existing jewellery box. Many of us already have sentimental pieces that just need a few tweaks in order to be able to enjoy them.

My favourite style tip is to keep your metals monochromatic and focus on mixing textures. For example: if your hair accessories are in a gold tone with a smooth finish, you can pair this with a chain necklace in gold. The texture of the chain adds depth while keeping the overall look cohesive.
Another tip is to think in terms of staggering from head to toe. If your hair is beautifully decorated with flowers or accessories, you may want to keep your earrings minimal and have your next point of impact be your necklace or neckline. Your eye should be able to easily flow from one detail to the next.
