Tucked away in the beautiful market town of Bradford on Avon in Wiltshire is the home of the super talented design duo behind Vivien J Bridal Accessories. The warm and friendly mother and daughter team, Jan and Hannah, began designing wedding jewellery back in 2008 after they designed and handmade a headdress and jewellery for a very special family wedding and they’ve not looked back since! Everything, from the initial design to the finished piece is meticulously crafted and the levels of care, attention to detail and originality are clear for all to see.
The soft, feminine signature style of Vivien J with floral designs combined with classic touches and a hint of vintage complement a huge range of bridal styles. In fact, their knowledge of bridal gown designs mean that Hannah and Jan have a wonderful understanding of bridal trends and are continually inspired.
For us, what really makes Vivien J stand out is that they clearly adore what they do – they admit that they design from their heart and soul and we simply love this. For a day that’s all about emotion, passion and a deep understanding of what makes something special, what more could you ask for?
And, make no mistake about it, that is exactly what Vivien J are – Hannah and Jan completely believe that your bridal accessories should be created for your style and personality, so they welcome ideas for commissioning your own special designs. Their flexibility and super friendly, professional service makes them a joy to be involved with.
With their incredible work starting at just £30 for hair pins, £45 for bracelets and £70 for necklaces rising to £300 for a headdress with the wow factor, Vivien J really offers something for everyone – each and every bride will receive that personal touch that is as beautiful as the pieces themselves.
" I’ve been fascinated with beads for as long as I can remember, so my job is born out of a passion and obsession, which makes me very lucky.
I work from a small studio in my home, where I am surrounded by all my beading paraphernalia; threads, fabrics, pack upon pack of Swarovski crystal, strings of freshwater pearls and little pots of seed beads.
Creating the finer detail of a brides wedding day ensemble is a privilege, as I really believe it’s these finishing touches that make all the difference and they become the treasured keepsakes from such a special day.
Every bead, sequin, and gem is hand stitched, and I’m a perfectionist with the keenest eye for detail so your finished accessory is a small work of art "
