For expert help to choose your wedding hair accessory, book a free styling consultation with our designer Debbie Carlisle in our studio workshop.
You'll be welcomed into our beautiful consultation area where Debbie will discuss ideas with you and guide you through her designs to help you find the perfect look for your day - or create a bespoke design just for you if you prefer.
Booking your appointment:
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or use our contact form
to request an appointment. Appointment slots are usually booked up 2-3 weeks in advance so it is ideal if you can give a few weeks notice if you have a specific date in mind - although it's always worth checking for last minute availability. Debbie offers consultations from 10 am to 3.30pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Weekend appointments may also be available if you are unable to visit during the week.
When you book your appointment we ask you to send us a picture or link to your wedding dress along with a wish list of your favourite Debbie Carlisle accessories so we can be sure we have them ready for you try on. This helps Debbie to build up a picture in advance of your style and come up with other accessory ideas you may not have thought of based on your taste, style and wedding dress.
The first thing we’ll do is have a chat about your wedding plans and how you hope to look and feel on your wedding day. If you’ve sent a wish-list in advance we'll have all your chosen designs out on the dressing table ready for you to try, along with any extras Debbie has picked out for your. There’s also a chance to browse the cabinets in case any of my other designs catch your eye.
The next bit is the really fun part - we’ll start trying on pieces. We’ll try headpieces with a few different hairstyles if you haven’t chosen your definite style yet, in lots of different positions, and with or without a veil too – we keep a beautiful simple tulle veil in the studio especially for this!
As we are a working jewellery design and making studio we do ask all our visitors to make an appointment to be sure we have the time and availability to work with you to find your special hand-crafted piece.
All of our designs are made to order and take approximately 2-3 weeks to create - although we do offer a rush order service for customers who are on a tight timescale. We also offer bespoke design options - which may take longer depending on the work and materials involved.
We recommend booking in once you have found your wedding dress so Debbie can ensure your headpiece works with your chosen gown.
If you are having a wedding hair trial we would suggest booking in to see us at least a month before your appointment where possible so you can take your chosen headpiece to your trial. However we can just as easily work around your chosen hairstyle if you prefer to have your trial before choosing your headpiece.
