Today I am delighted to share the lovely Crystal Wedding Accessories of Perfect Weddings by Susan Wilde.
The company is based in Stockport.
I had a wee chat to Susan about her work…
Who are you, and what do you do?
“I am Susan Wilde and I create bespoke Swarovski Crystal Wedding Accessories such as Tiaras, Crowns, Bouquets, Jewellery, Sash Belts and Shoes.”
When and why did you start your Company?
“I started making accessories over ten years ago but had to give up when my mum became very poorly.”
“Luckily she is well again and I commercially re-launched in 2013.”
“Initially I had started purely because there was nothing available for my own wedding that I liked and started to create pieces for family and friends from there.”
What inspires you?
“I love watching the latest designers especially people like Ian Stuart who inspire me to create new and exciting pieces but also I work individually with brides to create their own bespoke look in accordance to their theme.”
Do trends influence your work?
“Definitely, it is essential to keep a good selection of all types of pieces and make sure current favourites are in the collection for example lace pieces and brow bands are very popular for 2014/15.”
What is your greatest achievement?
“I was delighted to have several of my collection exhibited on the catwalk at The National Wedding Show, Manchester Spring 2014.”
What do you see as the future of your Company?
“I hope to eventually become a household name in the Wedding Industry for a bespoke and quality service.”
“I have recently been approached by a Wedding Boutique as their premier supplier and this will be launched in September 2014.”
“Adding a couple of further stockists would be great whilst I wish to remain small and independent enough to complete each piece myself.”
“I would also like to open a viewing studio by the close of 2015.”
“I absolutely love what I do and I only work with the finest materials. I am currently working on some weddings gowns that are being adorned with hand stitched Swarovski.”
“I would particularly like to keep this service for the curvier bride as I feel she can often be overlooked.”
Thank you so much to Susan for sharing her very pretty crystal wedding accessories with us today.
