If I was asked to recommend one “must do” wedding tip, this would be it. There is something very special about taking a piece of metal – lifeless and meaningless – and turning it into the symbol of your love which will be at the heart of your ceremony, and a daily reminder of your commitment to each other.

Mark is amazing: he gives you the confidence to make a beautiful piece of jewellery that you can be truly proud of. Its also worth noting that this is one of the only places in the country where you can work in platinum – most “make your own” studios will get you to make a silver ring which they will then cast in platinum – but we felt that would undermines the whole point of the exercise! If you are “umming” about whether to do this, just go for it. You will not regret it.
