Today I am excited to spotlight on the the Amatory Collection, a beautiful hand-woven bespoke headpieces created by an incredible collaboration between Eva Marie Accessories and AMM Hair and Makeup Team.
Images of these beautiful pieces were captured by Caro Weiss Photography.
To begin I share a little history behind the two brands….
Founded by award-winning hair stylist Anne Marie McElroy, AMM Hair and Makeup Team provide a five star luxury service in a destination of your choice.
Anne Marie has over 11 years experience in running her own successful company alongside her sister Julie Diplacito, who is an educator within the team.
After the success of Anne Marie’s solo career she felt it was important to give back some of the experience and tips she had learned over the years working in the luxury weddings and fashion industries.
Over the past five years Anne Marie has mentored some of the best hairstylists and make up artists in the Scottish wedding industry, and now working with artists and stylists based all over Scotland, the team have been handpicked and trained to the highest possible standard.
Eva Marie is an inspiring accessories brand from designer, Sarah Simms.
Her collection of artistically woven headpieces are individually handmade from her home studio in Stockbridge, Edinburgh.
She is inspired by Picasso’s minimalist line drawings, with an infinite love of evanescent cherry blossoms and the irrepressible beauty of the natural world.
Each design can be made to order creating an original and personal headpiece intended to capture the unique spirit of the wearer and allowing her to express her true style identity, no matter the occasion.
Her story began beneath the flickering shade of Cherry Hill in the greatest city in the world – New York City.
Surrounded by the warm embrace of a celestial light bursting through urban clouds, a graceful bride floated through Central Park with a liberating sense of freedom.
As tender vows poetically filled the air with intoxicating bliss, her original style came effortlessly. What she wore in those defining moments was an expression of identity.
The bride that day was designer, Sarah Simms.
She had created a stunning bridal accessory inspired by the wonders of nature’s complex yet delicate organic forms – evocative of cherry blossoms in bloom
Now, drawing inspiration from the cherry blossom trees in Spring, Amatory is a collaboration between Eva Marie Accessories and AMM Hair and Makeup Team.
Fusing together a love of bridal hair styling and hand-woven bespoke headpieces; Amatory was created.
Amatory is a luxury hand-crafted headpiece range, using high-end materials such as rose quartz, gold, fresh water pearls and sapphires.
Each piece is created with meaning and the stones and crystals are carefully selected to create the desired energy.
