Doesn't time fly by, this is my last blog so I thought I should tell you of the exciting plans for Bruce Oldfield Wedding, and remember: you will read it here first!
As we have such a fabulous building at 34 Beauchamp Place and the luxury of space, I thought I would try and make it a one-stop destination for the discerning bride. The first service will be the wedding list and I have chosen as partners two wonderful businesses who will be able to provide the service and the variety of product and price-points, that are necessary in such a venture.
As well as designing products for the home myself which will come on-stream early next year, I have selected from Willer in Holland Street W8 stunning tableware, porcelain, crystal, silver and linen, along with beautiful sculptural glass and Massimo Micheluzzi pieces for the home - these are 'for best'. From Summerill and Bishop in Portland Rd W11, I have selected perhaps more practical everyday pieces which belong in any home whether you err towards the grand or the simple, from a John Julian black granite pestle and mortar to wonderful wood-handled steak knives by Laguiole.
What comes first - the ring or the dress? Answer... both at the same time at Bruce Oldfield. I have designed a gorgeous collection of engagement and wedding rings, which can be worn separately or together. You will be able to choose the grade of the main stones in the rings to suit your budget without altering the look of the designs, which are mostly executed in white gold. This service will be available from the autumn.
The idea is that if you like my taste and my style: simple, beautifully designed classic yet contemporary dresses executed to the highest of standards, then you will also want to surround yourself with pieces that mirror it.
Thank you for reading my blogs over the last two months and have a great wedding day!
