#1 Debbie Carlisle 

We just can’t get enough of Sheffield-based accessory designer, Debbie Carlisle’s whimsical bridal designs. Endlessly inspired by the English countryside and nature itself, there’s a certain magical whimsy that comes with one of her hair pins or trailing vines. And, if you’re a pearl kind of girl, you’ll just love her Luxury pearl Bridal Hairpins, Prudence (available in sets of small, medium and large). Just perfect for pinning into a heavenly updo for the aisle.
