With Strictly Weddings announcing its expansion into the United Kingdom, we are thrilled to share these stunning luxury wedding accessories from one of our newest partners from across the pond! It took but one glance to fall head over heels in love with the bespoke headpieces by Designer, Ann McKavney of Eleventh Heaven. Handcrafted with only the finest wires, Ann tailors her designs to complement the individuality of each bride with rare vintage beads, Swarovski crystals, and lustrous pearls. "My work appeals to those discerning brides who want something special; a tailored piece that takes into account all the details of their wedding day," says Ann. In addition to her hairpieces, Ann offers custom jewelled bouquet embellishments, a service exclusive to brides working with Manchester florist, Red Floral. All of her designs involve intricate traditional beading techniques with a stylish, contemporary twist. "It is a luxury, niche market but attainable for both the ultra glamorous or the girl next door," assures Ann. Crafted to last using the highest quality materials, her hope is to provide a piece cherished in the present as well as an heirloom, beloved for years to come. Showcasing the exquisite beauty of Eleventh Heaven bridal accessories, we invite you to delight in the gorgeous imagery of Jeff Langhorne Photography, captured at a recent photo shoot affectionately named "Mirror Mirror."

More about today's featured shoot:

"When a group of like minded creatives find themselves with a rare day to play with some ideas, amazing things can happen," says Ann. The original idea behind this mostly impromptu shoot was to create a few looks highlighting Ann's bridal accessories and Flossy and Leigh hair & makeup. "The gowns by Eliza Jane Howell, discovered a week prior at the prestigious Tatton Park Wedding Show, dictated the mood of the shoot," explains Ann. Matching Ann's love of unabashed extravagance, she invited Mat of Red Floral to put together floral designs reflecting an atmosphere fit for a high style, luxury bride. With no time restrictions and no other agenda but to put creativity at play, the talented team achieved a refined collection of looks, true to the beauty and grace of the Eleventh Heaven bridal accessory line.
