Diamond Friday!

Happy Friday - we hope you have had a lovely week and are looking forward to the weekend??

Today we are sharing with you a stunning Princess and Brilliant cut Bracelet. This really is beautiful - and was given to a very lucky lady as a 'Push' present! For those who dont know what that is (and i was one of them!) its an American tradition to have Diamonds waiting while a woman is giving birth as an 'incentive'! This is a tradition i think most woman would appreciate in England - dont you!?
Gorgeous 8.2ct Diamond Bracelet

Serious Bling!! Congratulations to the lucky lady in question - on both the birth or your baby and for this stunner!

If i can help you with any bespoke jewellery email me on or call 07904123297.

Have a nice weekend!

Wedding Supplier Wednesday - Modern Photographic


Today we are featuring the wonderful Essex based Julia West (some people still know her as Julia Ford, as she is still in the process of changing her name after her wedding in July!), who is the wonderfully talented Art Editor at WEDDING magazine and one half of with her hubby Ian. Ian is also a celebrity portrait and event photographer.
Lets hear more from Julia:
I started in 2004, mainly second shooting but I set up the name and covered smaller weddings. My husband Ian joined the business last year in 2009
I had always had an avid interest in photography, since studying it at A Levels. With my design degree I still was able to do it to some extent. It wasn't until friends were getting married and they told me at the time the choice was mainly traditional. Only 6 years later there is lots more choice which is great and helps the industry strive to get better and more diverse
Firstly experience and knowing the industry. Ian has been a highly respected professional in the celebrity event circuit for over 25 years, I spend my days selecting real life weddings so I constantly see the latest ideas from weddings across the world. We put this together with a package that covers everything you could want. We also offer what we believe to be our unique client download gallery. All our couples receive a high res CD of full edited imagery. However we also upload a selection of these onto a gallery that your guests can download for themselves!
The best bit to my working day is the variety. I'm often asked how I juggle it all but I'm very fortunate enough to work on one of the best glossy bridal magazine's WEDDING. I deal with everything from photoshoots to selecting real life weddings, all to make sure the magazine looks stunning. I combine all this knowledge with my wedding photography clients, who I only take a select number on a year to ensure I can give them as much time as they deserve. I couldnt give up either!
Julia and Ian are such a lovely couple! To find out more about there own Wedding (and to be nosey!) it is featured in WEDDING this issue (December/January) and a grab of the pages is on there blog: http://modernphotographic.blogspot.comIm sure you can see from the images what an amazing couple they make! THANK YOU so much for allowing us to feature you on the blog!

Wedding Supplier Wednesday - Weddings by Design


There is lots of excitement in Wedding World at the moment due to the announcement of the Royal Wedding yesterday – we would like to send Prince William and Katherine huge CONGRATULATIONS and also the best of luck in their future together as the King and Queen of England (eventually!!) HOW EXCITING!

However, we have a job to do here at JKD and as you all know, today we feature some of the very best in the business, and today is no exception! Introducing Eleanor Holmes, the owner and founder of Weddings by Design, a Wedding designer based in Lincolnshire.

Lets hear what Eleanor has to say:
I plan and design weddings! My level of involvement is completely up to my clients; I offer smaller services such as Venue Search and Personalised Design Boards, and also a range of wedding packages that cover the planning process.

I completed a diploma in Event Management and Wedding Planning in 2009, but only started the company in September this year after graduating from university.

My mum always said I was born with a notebook and pen in my hand, and I've been obsessed with lists and organisation ever since. I struggled for a long time to find a balance between my organisational skills and my creative outlook on life, but when I read one day about the wedding planning process, I knew I'd hit gold. Setting up my own business was the most logical step in the current economic climate, to enable me to do what I love.

I like to focus on the design of a wedding, so rather than just book a supplier that fits with the couple's theme, I create a design vision and stick to it throughout the process. I construct a Personalised Design Board for each couple, which can also be purchased separately if a client only requires initial ideas.

Although I enjoy most aspects of the planning process, I love creating the Design Boards. I'm inspired by so many different things; fabrics, fashion, the weather, cities... the list goes on! So I love being able to search for new and exciting ideas across a whole range of media.

If you want to contact Eleanor, you can do so on, or via Twitter

and she is also currently setting up her own fundraiser for Cancer Research UK which will hopefully be something to do with the wedding industry, so look out for updates!

Thank you so much for allowing us to feature your wonderful company!

If you would like any bespoke jewellery please email or call 07904123297 or if you would like to feature on the blog please email

Have a lovely day!

Wedding Supplier Wednesday - More Than Words

Happy Wedding Supplier Wednesday! And boy have we got a cracker to warm you up and take away the rainy blues!!

Today we are featuring the lovely Lisa Long, Owner and 'chief designer' of the serious amazing 'More Than Words' typographic artwork.

Launched in 2010 and run from a home studio in Berkshire, Less than a year on, Lisa's artwork has been commissioned by customers across Europe, America and Australia. High profile clients include Dannii Minogue, screenwriter and film director Richard Curtis and TV executive Donna Taberer, and More Than Words artwork decorates the walls of well-known corporate clients such as the headquarters of Wedding Ideas Magazine, the UK's leading 'bride's bible'. Check out Lisa’s impressive PRESS here.
Seriously – how gorgeous are these pieces!!! Lets have a chat with Lisa and let her tell us all about it:
In a nutshell, I create bespoke typographic artwork capturing memories as works of art. The wedding market has become a huge part of the business and I create several pieces a week as gifts and keepsakes for happy couples to cherish. Our philosophy is to provide our customers with premium quality, original artwork at affordable prices. We pride ourselves on our passion for art and interiors and the desire to bring our clients something different. More Than Words offers artwork to suit any home and unique gifts for all occasions.
I have always loved design, in all shapes and forms – interiors, graphics, illustration, but it wasn’t until I took time out of a busy career to look after my children that I decided it was time to follow my passion and launch my own design business. I actually fell into the typographic design side as a result of creating a piece of art for our home, after struggling to find artwork that was affordable but premium quality, a great talking point, and something unique that we really loved.
I have a ‘thing’ for fonts…their simplicity has such impact, they surround us all day every day… so I created what is now the ‘original Memories Canvas’ to adorn our walls. A collection of our favourite memories as a piece of word art on a huge canvas in colours to match the room. I had so many requests for friends and family to create something for them…and from there More Than Words was born.
More Than Words typographic artwork is very unique, especially the gorgeous vintage framed canvas. Customers have the ability to submit their words and even mix their own custom colours via the website...I get many requests to match the wedding theme colours and I love being able to offer that service. Every single piece of art is also produced and hand-finished to strict Fine Art standards so you will not find any better quality.
I love that each new request is unique. I get really excited every time a new order comes through and I read down the list of quirky words and requested fonts and colours. The best part of the job is also doing something that I have immense passion for.I can fit it in around my children, aged 1 and 3. I tend to working late into the evenings once they have gone to bed, and use any free time I can get to design artwork and grow the business. I also LOVE when my customers actually take time out of their day to email or call me to say how pleased they are with their artwork.

This is my absolute FAV piece Lisa has ever made....isnt it stunning!!!!
And just to tease us, Lisa finished her interview by saying
watch this space for some fantastic new pieces coming soon.....

Ekkk – I cant wait to see what she comes up with next!!! THANK YOU so much for allowing us to feature your company on our blog and we wish you continued success!
