Tales of Love: Lauren & Henry

A tale of love that seemed fated in the stars; a chance meeting at a Downtown bar in New York quickly grew into something special for Lauren & Henry!

'Henry was on holiday in New York, where I lived at the time, and we met on his first night in the city. We happened to be at the same birthday party, at a grotty bar downtown, thanks to some friends we now know we have in common, and the rest is history! We had a year of long distance and I moved back to London in early 2016. The friend who introduced us actually spoke at our wedding, which was lovely to have it all come full circle.'

Lauren & Henry celebrated their legal wedding date at Hackney Town Hall followed by lunch at Ombra, a delicious canal-side Italian restaurant here in Hackney. Donning a Cecilie Bahnsen dress and some freshly picked hydrangeas, this is a city wedding done perfectly!

A couple of days later they got to do it all over again with a larger celebration at Brympton House, a beautiful wedding venue in Somerset. Lauren wore a dress from Jessica Bennett and a veil from Harriet Gordon, both chosen from The Fall, a wonderfully curated bridal store in Hackney Wick. Both weddings were beautifully photographed by Emily Rose, who Lauren & Henry have spoken so highly of, so take note any soon brides-to-be!

Lauren has a beautiful heirloom engagement ring, set with an amethyst centre and delicate halo of white diamonds. She really wanted to have a wedding ring that would pair perfectly next to it but something which felt a little modern too.

Clarice designed a pair of matching bands which nestle either side of her ring. Owing to the design of the underside of Lauren's engagement ring, we decided upon open ended bands, but really took advantage of this feature. One side is set with a round diamond, and the other side features castle-set graduated white diamonds. We really love how as a trio they create such a unique set!

‘My partner and I loved working with Clarice to design my wedding rings. It was an absolute pleasure, I loved her creativity and we ended up with something really special. We're already looking for excuses to design another piece of jewellery with her!
