Angie Northwood is a local crafts person who creates jewellery from recycled silver and copper. Her work is inspired by the magical, mystical beauty of Wales with its rolling green valleys, ancient woodlands and stunning coastline.

She is offering the opportunity for couples to attend a workshop with her to make their own wedding bands or to make a special piece as a gift for their maids or mothers.

A personal 1:1 or 2:1 workshop lasts approximately 3 hours and costs £60 per person. In that time she will guide and support you through the process of designing and making an original piece of jewellery for your wedding to keep forever.

"We knew we wanted to make our own wedding rings but had no idea where to start. Angie gave expert and extremely friendly guidance in a calming and creative atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and have come away with two magnificent and unique rings that we'll cherish forever along with happy memories of their creation."
Menna and Catherine, October 2014

Green & Gorgeous Christmas flower design courses

The lovely girls over at Green and Gorgeous are offering some fantastic flower arranging courses to inspire you with your wedding flower design plans next year.

First up are their Christmas wreath courses in December, but since most of you will be planning a spring or summer wedding you may be more interested in the flower arranging courses on offer in 2011.

The first two will concentrate on how to grow your own cutting flowers while the rest will be showing students how to arrange flowers from the garden.

There will be lots of demonstrations and handy tips, plus the opportunity to arrange with the best ingredients from Green and Gorgeous's own cutting garden.

During the day students will be shown how to create a hand tied bunch - perfect for a natural bridal bouquet. Also a corsage and a table arrangement will be tackled and the great thing is that you get to take them all home with you. The day includes a home-made vegetarian light lunch and refreshments.
