I DO Wedding Exhibition – Sarah Mason, local photographer
This quick little blog is to let you know that Heart Gallery is holding a Wedding Exhibition on Valentines’ Day, 12pm – 5pm. So if you are celebrating the union of love in 2010 then you need to come down to Hebden Bridge to see what Heart Gallery can offer you and your party for your special day.
Meet Sarah Mason, a local photographer with a sensitive and individual approach to your wedding or civil partnership and the ability to capture those special moments. Sarah will be at Heart Gallery to chat with you about your requirements and your plans to give you the photo’s you want. Sarah’s style is fresh, contemporary and natural and she likes to create a rapport with her client(s) and develop ideas prior to your BIG day. Sarah believes that the photographer shouldn’t take over your SPECIAL day so her approach is friendly yet discreet!

Heart Gallery is already a stockist of Amanda’s amazing silver and gold jewellery so you have probably seen her stunning lily collection in Heart Gallery previously. On February 14th Amanda will be at Heart Gallery to talk to you about your bridal jewellery ideas and can also help you choose those perfect Bridesmaid’s gifts. Amanda’s silver lily collection is stunning and perfect for your SPECIAL day but she also has a fabulous rose collection too which can be chosen in polished silver and oxidised silver.
If you prefer more precious metals then we can also quote for any of Amanda’s pieces in yellow or white gold.

As well as showcasing stunning bridal jewellery from top UK based designer/makers you can also bring your partner along too to look at a wide range of cufflinks from these makers. When it comes to gifts for your bridal party, personalise. This shows that you have taken time with the gift and it makes a great keepsake. You can do this in a number of ways. Bespoke is one. Have a jeweller make jewellery to your specification for your bridesmaids or cufflinks for the groomsmen. There will be many handcrafted cufflinks on display in Heart Gallery on Sunday 14th February so not only can the groom choose a pair to compliment his Wedding suit but so can the Best Man and Ushers knowing that they are choosing the Best of British Craft.

You can also see fabulous silk ties from textile artist Clare Webster who can talk you through the different silk swatches and match the silk to the bridesmaid’s dresses or a colour scheme of your choice. Clare also makes amazingly sculptural bags and scarves which are just perfect for the mother of the bride or groom and the choice of silk colours is endless so you can match to the outfit or the shoes and stand out from the crowd. So, if you are looking for an outfit for your daughter or son’s wedding, our advice would be to have something designed for you which is not typical mother of the bride and could be worn afterwards. Its always good to know if your accessories have been designed specifically for you as there’s no chance of meeting someone else in the same thing and Clare can make sure this happens.

On Valentines Day, Heart Gallery will focus on adornment, especially rings, jewellery, headwear, textiles and bags but is also bringing you interesting gift ideas from a selection of the best designers in the UK – forget crystal, crockery and cutlery and choose something unique and exciting instead. Treat your wedding gift list as a Heart’s Desire List – think about updating any existing homeware and include any gifts you’ve always wanted. Ensure you have enough gifts for your guests to choose from. It’s better to have too much on your Heart’s Desire List than too little. Also remember to include a wide selection of prices as friends and family may choose to club together to purchase a large item. When choosing Heart Gallery for your Heart’s Desire List, you can be certain we have a good team, polite and helpful to your requests and we have a wide choice available, with something to suit all budgets. It’s always a good idea to include gift tokens so that if your guests can’t find anything they love on your Heart’s Desire List they can get our fabulous pewter Heart Gift Tokens and then you are able to pick what you like in your own time. If you honeymoon in New York then you could make sure that Clare Caulfield is high on your Heart’s Desire List to remind you of your time together: Heart Gallery also sells Clare’s prints of other famous cities and we always have a choice of about 6 originals either framed or just mounted.
