After months of design and hours of tediously hand stitching these beautiful creations, laura rhodes has finally launched her first jewellery and accessory collection, and Brides Up North are thrilled to be the very first to bring this luxury collection of hand-made pieces to your attention.
Never seen before, these beauties are designed and created by Laura herself in her Ilkley studio set within the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. These opulent accessories are crafted to the highest standard using only the finest components with every piece being lovingly hand stitched with stunning attention to detail. The collection doesn’t follow trends – instead Laura designs and creates timeless pieces that will last and be worn over and over again.
After ‘discovering’ Laura’s work at London’s White Gallery trade event earlier this year, we are thrilled to bring these pieces to our pretty pages as an exclusive first look. We know that you’ll love these treasures just as much as we do! Get ready to twinkle…

Accessories are an important part of any outfit, as a bride they can completely change or complete your look on the big day, with this in mind the Laura Rhodes collection covers all aspects ranging from headpieces and earrings to statement necklaces and sash belts. Brides can also put their own mark on their accessories by meeting Laura at the studio and having a bespoke piece specially designed.
To coincide with the launch of her first collection, Laura Rhodes has also launched her website www.laurarhodesbridal.com where brides who are not local to the studio can view and purchase the entire range, allowing the designs to be available both nationally and internationally.
laura says: I love what I do and I take a great deal of pride in each and every piece. I am a perfectionist and my own worst critic but that is what makes my work what it is. I like to think my creations are some-thing that can be passed on, timeless and without age. I consider each creation an individual piece of art and continue to take my inspiration from everyday architecture and nature. A lot of thought has gone into each design, each having been sketched many times in my book before I begin creating. I still feel so honored when someone chooses to buy my work; there is nothing more re-warding than when a bride chooses to wear one of my designs on her special day.
