Brides looking for unique jewellery pieces to finish off their bridal look should head to Gilda's Tryst Bridal boutique in Covent Garden.
The intimate boutique is a true treasure trove of beautiful and bold pieces, inspired by iconic weddings and women, including Marilyn Monroe, Jackie O and Audrey Hephburn.
Created by childhood friends and business partners Shireen and Amanda, their bold but wearable designs are elegant and very chic, using freshwater pearls and brilliant gemstones to complement your wedding dress.
"We opened our Sloane Square shop in 2009 but have organically moved into bridal designs," explained Shireen, draped in elegant pearls and a gold feline pendant. "The bridal collection really captivates that glamour of a bygone era in a romantic way."
And romantic it is. The Monmouth Street boutique is enchanting from the moment you step inside: the thick cream carpets, antique display cabinets and vintage furniture ooze a sense of elegance and luxury. The alluring designs held in the cabinets continues that exquisite trance.
Brides-to-be also have the opportunity to designs and create bespoke pieces, adapting pieces of their collection, or commissioning entirely new items if the want something different.
