2019 Real Weddings -  Lisa & Brian

We would like to share with you the beautiful wedding of one of our real brides Lisa. Lisa wore a custom pair of statement earrings and our Aeveen bracelet. We asked her all about her wedding day, and she kindly shared with us some insight into her wedding to Brian and all the days delights. Thanks Lisa for sharing!

Can you tell us where did you meet and can you tell us a little bit about the proposal?
We had our first date in Winter Wonderland (Hyde Park, London) Christmas 2014 (Dec 19th), although, both from County Louth, we met in our local nightclub 10 years before that! 

3 years to the date, back in Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, Christmas 2017 (Dec 19th) we got engaged. We returned to London every year since we met to Winter Wonderland and that year I was not expecting a proposal!!! For someone who usually has their nose stuck in everything, I was totally shocked and blown away! Brian is a plumber and made the engagement ring from some copper piping and stuck a Penney's "diamond" earring on top!! I loved it...until it turned my finger green, the very next day!

Where did you get married and why did you chose the venue?

We got married in beautiful Dubai, on Oct. 30th 2018 at the Five Star Jumeirah Beach Hotel, in their outdoor "Sunset Garden" Lawn. We always said we wanted a marriage, not a wedding, so for us it was about celebrating with our closest friends and family, in a small, intimate location, far enough away so that only our nearest and dearest would want to travel to it! We had guests travel from all over the world travel to Dubai to celebrate with us; from Sydney, Melbourne, China, Texas, London and of course Ireland. A big Irish wedding wasn't for us, we wanted something different, more relaxed and less formal. Not a wedding cake, nor a fully covered hotel wedding chair, nor round function table or conference room in sight, instead we replaced these with vintage sofas, luxury arm chairs, bistro tables, rugs and cushions, free flowing champagne & beers, during our "Sip & Be Seated" Lounge Style Ceremony, almost like saying our vows in an outdoor siting room setting sharing a glass of bubbles amongst friends.

Emotions were running high, having the small intimate group of our closest friends and family meant there wasn't a dry eye in the place! Or maybe they were fragile from the night before!!! JUMEIRAH Beach Sunset Garden in Dubai really is one of the most romantic and outstanding locations in this world - saying our vows in the garden over looking the iconic 7 star Burj Al Arab - what a backdrop!

Can you tell us about your dress?
It was the Katie May "Barceclona"  Dress, from California, purchased in Ivory & Pearl in Comber, Northern Ireland. For our destination wedding in the sun I wanted a relaxed, beautiful light gown but with glamour and sexiness.

Dubai is uber stylish and I wanted my dress to represent that. It was always going to have to be backless too (my husband loves a good back haha). Not a pearl or an embellishment in sight, just a few delicate pieces of lace, I loved the simplicity and yet dramatic wow of it. 

What was the most memorable part of your day?

The lounge style ceremony (it was very emotional!) and the after party later that night on the beach, on the sand, in Beach Lounge (part of the Jumeirah Hotel) which is just under the Burj Al Arab in the little hours of the morning where our friend Bobby serenated us with his voice and guitar. It was one of those moments where myself and Brian, looked at each other to ask "is this really happening?"

What was the one thing you wanted your guests to remember from the day?

How much it meant for us that they were part of our special day and we wanted to treat them to a once in a lifetime experience. "I've never experienced anything like that before and pretty sure I never will" is how one of the guests described it. It felt like an amazing holiday away with friends that we never wanted to end.

What Jules piece did you wear and why did you chose it?

I wore two statement pieces of jewellery from Jules on my wedding day - earrings and bracelet,with my dress being quite elegant (and not fussy!) and with us being in Dubai, I loved going dramatic and glamorous with my jewellery.
My 4 gorgeous bridesmaids and my beautiful Mother all wore Jules earrings also. I chose Jules as we had also worn Jules earrings for my sister Aisling's wedding 4 years previously - our jewellery got so many compliments and I have literally worn those earrings to every special occasion since. Jules jewellery is so special and was perfect for my wedding day.

Tell us a bit about your experience with Jules Bridal – did you visit The showroom? order online? call?
Visited the showroom with my bridesmaid Claire and loved every minute of our experience there. We dealt with Jules herself and the care we got was incredible.
We left with more than just the wedding jewellery, everything is just too beautiful to leave behind in the showroom!

When you look at your Jules piece now, what do you think of?

I think stand out. My jewellery was stand out for me. I loved it. Thank you so much for creating such beautiful and different wedding jewellery pieces out of the bridal norm!

Planning a wedding in uncertain times...
Planning a wedding in uncertain times...

March 30, 2020

Anyone who has planned a wedding will tell you that there is a lot to think about, whatever time of year you choose for it to take place. But if the run-up to your wedding or even the big day itself are happening in the midst of the corona virus outbreak, you might be wondering what you should do to prepare (if that is even possible!) and plan for the potential that your wedding will in some way be affected.
Right now, whether you’re planning a wedding at home or abroad, there are countless moving parts surrounding COVID-19 and since this situation is fluid, what it means for your wedding, specifically, really depends on your wedding date.
Wedding Planning
To help you prepare for what you should do—and help you if you do sadly have to change plans—we spoke with experts across the industry, including travel consultants and wedding planners, to give you a closer look at how COVID-19 is affecting wedding planning right now, and how to prep for the coming months.
No. 1 - Be prepared
Whenever there is a problem, there is generally a solution, or if you can’t find a solution there is likely an alternative. It sounds very cliched but the best you can do is to keep calm and carry on. All of your guests whether they be family, friends, or colleagues all want to celebrate with you, but at a time that is safe and when you can all enjoy each others company.
No. 2 - Communicate with your vendors
Rather than second guess what your vendors are planning, get in touch with them, discuss worst scenarios and come together to create a game plan.

A brides guide to wedding accessories…
A brides guide to wedding accessories…

March 11, 2020

Choosing your bridal jewellery is one of THE best parts about planning your wedding ensemble and we should know! But there are other accessories that need to be considered in the run-up to the big day, so we have pulled together this guide to make sure you don’t miss anything…

When it comes to shoes comfort is key, remember that you will be wearing these shoes for the majority of the day, you will be standing, walking and dancing, so, go for natural materials, as they are more breathable and will stretch to fit your feet. Also, don’t forget to buy your shoes around the same time as you order your wedding dress. This is very important as your alterations, especially the hem adjustment, will depend on the height of your heel. Buying shoes early on will mean you are ready for all of your fittings and that you have plenty of time to break them in at home.
The timing of your wedding can be a deciding factor on your footwear choice. If you are getting married in winter, you might want a back-up pair of weddingtons (see what we did there!) to avoid the puddles, or if you are having your reception in the summer months you might want a pair of flats or wedges at the ready for walking on grass. In fact, having a back-up pair of flats is always a great idea, just in case!

Wedding traditions for todays Bride
Wedding traditions for todays Bride

March 04, 2020

When it comes to traditions, you can’t fit many more into one occasion than you can on a Wedding day! From the brides choice of a gown to the ceremony itself, the best man's speech, the first dance and the bouquet toss, your big day will be a constant nod to tradition. You might find some of the customs aren't in keeping with the style of your wedding, but when it comes down to bridal jewellery, you'll appreciate many of the old traditions, mainly because the bride comes out of it pretty well, with lots of sparkly options…

It is traditionally the job of the groom or the father-of-the-bride to gift the bride with pearls on the day of her wedding. Pearls are seen as a symbol of perfection, purity and innocence, and it is said that the ancient Greeks believed pearls would help ensure marital bliss and prevent newlywed brides from crying!
When it comes to wedding jewellery there are many, many choices when it comes to pearls. You could opt for a pearl choker, a discreet pearl bracelet, some beautiful earrings or one of our favourites, a pearl headpiece, here is our Gold Leaf and Freshwater Pearl Headpiece, which is a great choice for any bride.
