How did HT Headwear come about and how long has the business been going?

I started HT Headwear when I was on maternity leave with my first child in 2010. The idea of having my own company was planted in my mind after making headwear for myself and my bridal party for my own wedding back in 2009.

Where do you source your materials from?

I only source materials from UK suppliers.

Where do you get the inspiration for your designs from?

Everywhere and everything! It could be anything from a spider’s web to a cut wine glass, to a dried up old leaf on the floor!

No I cater for all events….race days, proms, costume props; the list is endless!

Definitely milk!

What’s the best thing about your job?

Being able to work at home, in my own hours, whilst being able to spend quality time with my children and not having to face that London Tube into the city every day!

Who are your favourite fashion designers and why?

I don’t really have any favourite ‘fashion designers’ as such but if I had to name someone it would have to be Jenny Packham. Her bridal wear is just to die for! I wore Jenny Packham on my wedding day and felt a million dollars! I have never seen a dress of hers that I don’t like.

Do you have a favourite item of headwear you have created?

Yes, I love the ‘Belinda’ headpiece which is currently our best seller!

Wedding Pinwheels – Moody Monday

We just love the idea of having pinwheels at a wedding to bring an element of retro but also fun at the same time! They are really easy to make (instructions below), and you can chose colours and patterns to compliment your wedding theme. Not only do they make great decorations used in flower pots and buckets of sand, you could also make pinwheel buttonholes, corsages and even large ones to use as bouquets. Here are some of our favourite ideas to use pinwheels at your wedding.
