What is Sweetcrafts?

A mixture of sweets and crafts. For weddings our product is the “Bem-casado”, a delicious sweet handmade individually as a delicate craft. Two halves united by a soft cream that will keep them together…forever.

What made you launch Sweetcrafts and how long has the business been going?

I first had the idea of starting this business when I made one of the most traditional Brazilian sweets for my own wedding in 2008 and everybody really enjoyed them. I launched the business last year after creating my website and participating at my first Show. I was so happy; my sweets were a real success!

Do you cover the whole of the UK?

We are based in Hampshire but we’ve always been able to deliver to London and the surrounding areas. Sometimes we post to Scotland and some countries in Europe.

Do you make the favours yourself?

Yes, I find it really enjoyable. I make them from an old recipe, still using the same method, seeking the “perfect match” for each part of the sweet as my grandmother used to do.

Ice Queen Tiara - From the Tiararama Winter Collection

Tiararama Launches Its First Ever Collection of Bridal Hair Accessories for 2011

Tiararama, best known for its exclusively designed tiaras and accessories, has announced the launch of its first dedicated set of bridal hair accessory collections for 2011.

Tiararama specialises in designing and creating unique and bold bridal accessories, bespoke for each client, and its couture service is the foundation of the company. To cement the importance of this service Tiararama has also rebranded its couture service into Tiararama Couture and also launched this yesterday, to coincide with the first collection of hair accessories.

The 2011 collections have been inspired by the seasons. Each collection has a distinct look and feel, reflecting designer Suzanne’s belief that certain beading techniques and crystal shapes are better suited to different times of the year as they capture the differing light more effectively.

The collection moves away from traditional tiara styles and emphasises asymmetric designs, allowing for bold, yet elegant creations. The collections contain a mix of freshwater and Swarovski pearl and crystal, with more limited use of diamante.  Each piece can be customised to meet the bride’s specific requirements if desired.
