Klaire Van Elton & Jessica Charleston

Jessica Charleston owns a beautiful boutique in the centre of Bath, where she designs and crafts her wonderful couture wedding gowns. Jessica has just become a stockist for Klaire Van Elton Bridal Adornments, and these gorgeous images were captured by Andrea Pennington Photographer.
Jessica explains, “When I first saw Klaire Van Elton’s accessories, I knew I just had to have them in my shop and I’m so delighted to be her Bath stockist. The ingenious origami pieces complement my Japanese inspired dresses perfectly and the delicate pearl, lace and floral filigree pieces work beautifully with the more romantic dresses from my ‘Fleurs Sauvages’ and ‘Myth & Muse’ collections.”

The 2014 Collection combines an eclectic yet elegant mixture of bridal accessories and utilises high quality laces, beads and findings, all handmade by Klaire in her studio in Leicestershire. Klaire also incorporates crystals, pearls and gemstones to add subtle embellishments to her designs. Always looking to break the mould, the collection would appeal to the quirky or vintage bride, looking for that something special on their wedding day.

Jessica continues,”The necklaces are by Nickie Portman, a Bath based accessories designer. This is her first bridal collection which uses freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and semi-precious stones on silk thread and silver wire to create beautifully delicate necklaces, bracelets and earrings.”
