*This competition is now closed 16/02/13*

I have a wonderful competition on the blog today to celebrate the launch of a new, handcrafted bridal collection from Pearl & Co – full details on how to enter to win their beautiful ‘Anastasia’ headband are below.

The Natural Wedding Company readers can also claim a fantastic 10% discount on all orders placed with Pearl & Co before the 28th February 2013 – simply quote ‘TNWC’ when ordering.

Their new collection, Adorna, features a versatile range of headpieces, sashes and garters, alongside opulent brooch bouquets and embroidered ring pillows.

Isabelle bridal headpiece

For the new Adorna collection, designers Helen Lancaster and Carly McLoughlin wanted to merge luxurious glamour with soft, subtle feminitity, which can been seen in the range from the petite, pearl Evelyn forehead band, to the jewel embellished Deva hair adornment.  Pearl & Co also incorporate a number of vintage embellishments and up-cycled fabrics for their pieces.

Florella bridal sash

What I love about this new collection is the versatility of a number of accessories, which can be worn as either headwear or sashes.  Martha (below) is an example of one of these pieces, created using a frosted white textured fabric featuring a whimsical, floral pattern that has been hand-finished with tiny silver beading.

Pearl & Co’s range of handmade garters feature subtle touches of romantic shades, such as pale lilacs and pinks alongside the whites and creams.  Each garter is finished with an individual design detail such as a lace appliqués, pretty fabric petals and rare vintage beading.  The garters come in either flat or ruffled variations.

As well as their ready-to-wear range, Pearl & Co also offer a bespoke service on all of their handmade accessories, which allows brides to share their ideas and have a truly unique and personal piece created for their wedding day.

The Prize

One lucky TNWC reader will win the beautiful Anastasia headband: this romantic piece features three handmade ivory lace flowers and leaf detail, which have been carefully embellished with a delicate scattering of rhinestones, beads and crystals.

The design is attached to a pearl beaded headed with thin ribbons for a comfortable self-tie.  It can be worn across the forehead (as shown) or as a headband.  The Anastasia headband is created using up-cycled vintage fabrics and embellishments as well as new jewels.

Dear Pearl & Co, I would be over the moon if I won the Anastasia headband. I have a gorgeous ivory Maggie Sottero dress with botanical embellishments and this would be the perfect cherry on the cake! :-)

Dear Pearl&Co,

What beautiful accessories you make, they really look amazing quality, and they are a little bit soft & Vintage but also in keeping with a modern wedding, which is exactly how I’m trying to style my Autumnal October wedding (not a pumpkin in sight mind you!) I’d honestly love to win your Anastasia headband, I’d wear it with pride on the big day, and I can’t wait to check out the other accessories you have, especially the garters!

Much love,

Amy Tompkins (from Cheshire)

I have a vintage style strapless lace dress with leaf detailing on the base & a bespoke made Bolero for my autumnal/harvest festival themed wedding. I am also wearing my fiancés deceased Gran’s pearl necklace which she received for her 21st as my something old. We are funding the wedding ourselves & I haven’t thought about my head wear yet. I would love to add the Anastasia hair band to my ‘something new’ to complete my outfit.

Alice Hopcraft on 5. February, 2013

I’m going out and out ’50s for my dress and have been looking for something for my hair that strikes the whimsical/tissue-like chord, as well as giving that retro edge. I’d be very proud to wear the Anastasia headpiece with my pearls on 7th September 2013 x

Kerry Probert on 5. February, 2013

Dear Helen & Carly

I would love to win the Anastasia headpiece, Im sure it will be the perfect partner to my brooch bouquet(which will be made by your creative hands) so when I walk down the aise towards my own perfect partner he will agree and say yes, I do! x

Thank you The Natural Wedding Company for posting this and for unveiling Pearl & Co to me! I am so excited to have found this. I’ve just been looking at their website and my heart is actually racing with excitement!

I can’t tell you how long I’ve been looking for hand made vintage looking accessories with an elegant glamour to them. Sashes, garters and hair pieces… look no further! There are so many exquisite pieces to choose from Pearl and Co’s collection!

If I was to win the beautiful Anastasia headband I would be so excited – it would be such a special addition to my outfit. If I’m not the lucky winner, you have saved hours of my time looking for accessories so thank you for that gift alone!

Dear Pearl & Co.,

I would love to win your beautiful headband as I love all things recycled, upcycled and handmade. I would love to wear this with pride on my wedding day, in order to help me prove to the doubters (I have many!)that re-used items are not something to be sniffed at, but to be tinkered with into a new, charming life. The ‘theme’ of our wedding is ‘local'(family farm venue, local food, locally made dress, locally grown flowers, etc) as it’s a cause we believe strongly in, and to have a headband by a small, independant business from the city where I live would mean a lot to me too!

Although we got engaged a while ago now, I’ve put on some weight following an operation and have felt too shy and self conscious to go and look at any wedding wedding dresses. This could be my starting piece!

Rosie on 7. February, 2013

I’d love to win this beautiful piece, something that will last forever and remind me of what I imagine will be the best day of my life :) A modern piece that when handed down will be vintage too!

Lisa Thomas on 8. February, 2013

Dear Pearl & co
I am very much a plain Jane. The dress I am ordering is elegant but very simple. As I am having a winter wedding, I am wearing a shrug with my dress and intend on ordering one of your stunning brooch bouquets to give me the extra edge. If I were to win your lovely head piece it would be the finishing touch, converting a plain Jane into a beautiful vintage bride x

Pearl& Co,

My beautifull cousin , 22 years old is getting married spring of next year, when it comes to planning, organising and wedding gifts she has asked for nothing. But i believe she deserves something as gorgeous as herself, this head piece would be raher fitting :)

Holly on 8. February, 2013

I’ve scrimped and saved on my wedding dress. I just want one piece of hand-crafted luxury to be the crowning glory!

The beautiful bugle beads and pearls will match the details I’ve added to my own dress perfectly – but look like they might be rather closer to perfect than my effort!

Emma on 12. February, 2013

These accessories are absolutely gorgeous! I really want to have a ‘unique’ styled headdress, one that’s delecate but very effective. I’m really concentrating on my hair as my dress isn’t white but a stylish ‘berry’ colour and this headdress would go wonderfully with the colour but also the hand sewn flowers and rinestones that are on the front of the dress! It would mean a lot to me to be able to be in with a chance to get the perfect headdress. Thank you! x

Kat on 15. February, 2013

I have been searching high and low for something to wear in my hair on my wedding day on 17 April next year. This would be THE perfect thing. I am completely in love with it!!!!!!!!! you make such beautiful things :) It would mean so much to have such a beautiful accessory that suits my dress and the vintage/traditional theme of the day perfectly. But is so beautiful that I know I would be wearing it over and over again x

Adrianas  on 22. February, 2013

I am searching for bridal headbands and other accessories for a long time but now it comes to end. Your collection i wonderful.
