Creating a Bespoke Piece | Behind the Scenes

I get a lot of questions about my bespoke process so I thought it was time to give those of you who are interested an in-depth look.

I LOVE designing. I’m still as passionate about it now as I was in those early days when I started Tilly Thomas Lux and working with brides to create the piece of their dreams is so rewarding.

Fabulous crowns, bespoke earrings and a Rue De Seine gown for our beautiful bride

Ladies, get ready to go Pinterest crazy! This wedding is stunning from start to finish. Beautiful bride Klaudyna and her new husband Michal are high school sweethearts. Klaudyna came to me for her big day sparkles and I’m soooooo glad she did! She was totally adorable and such a pleasure to work with. I loved designing her bespoke ear jackets and love how she paired them with the Calypso and Oceania crowns.

Millie Mackintosh wears Tilly Thomas Lux for her wedding day

I was absolutely over the moon when I was asked to design a bespoke headpiece for Millie Mackintosh for her stunning English garden wedding to Hugo Taylor earlier this year. It was an absolute dream working with Millie to create her golden leafy headband. Taking inspiration from the wedding location and details like her stunning Gucci shoes we created a beautiful piece together.

Gold Leaves and Sparkling Crystals for an Autumnal Hermione De Paula Bride

“I discovered Tilly Thomas Lux after following the Most Curious Wedding Fair. I considered a piece from the Shooting Stars collection but decided quite close to the wedding, and after a conversation with Hermione herself, that the stars might not be right. I decided I should just follow my desire to go for the bespoke option of a leaf design with Swarovski crystals for a hint of sparkle. I have to say, after following TTL on Instagram for over a year and consistently being in awe of Sally’s work, I knew I couldn’t not get in touch!”

Happy New Year sparkle sisters! It's been a busy few weeks since returning from my honeymoon and I am so excited about what 2018 will bring for Tilly Thomas Lux. 2017 was an amazing year – I was the bride (twice), we launched a new collection, Shooting Stars, that you guys gave so much love (I’m still reeling from your kind words, thank you!) and signed up to my second Most Curious Wedding Fair – will I see any of you there in a few short months!?

New collection Shooting Stars 18

Today I’m incredibly excited to be launching the third Tilly Thomas Lux collection, ‘Shooting Stars’. Over the past few years I’ve been fortunate enough to draw on my sparkle-filled daydreams to create ‘Goddess’ and ‘Celestial Flight’, and I’ve come to realise that I’m constantly inspired by a natural world that is inextricably linked with the female - Mother Earth providing, creating and displaying her beauty in myriad forms. The moon after all in most Romance languages is feminine; ‘la lune’ or ‘la luna’ conjuring images of a regal, ethereal woman, hung mystically in an indigo velvet sky.

An Embellished Gown and Lady Liberty Inspired Jewels for an Eclectic Summer Bride

“I discovered Tilly Thomas through the world of Instagram and instantly fell in love with the sparkles - I knew I wanted to wear Tilly Thomas as soon as I saw the head bands. I was honoured to have helped designed my piece (let’s call it Lady Liberty!) with Sally. Tilly Thomas was something I HAD to wear for the special day; the designs are so unique, just like every woman wearing Sally’s pieces.”

An Leafy Headpiece and Claire Pettibone Gown for a Tuscan Wedding

“The second I met Sally and very quickly realised she was one of the single most talented, humble, genuinely kind human beings on this planet, I knew I wanted to be a Tilly Thomas Lux bride. After our fateful meeting at the Halfpenny launch at the Ritz, Sally and I met in a park near Embankment station to look over the beautiful mood board she’d created – a plethora of leafy motifs and delicately twinkling stones – I fell for the very first idea she showed me.”
