Our Recommended Suppliers, Wanderlust Life Jewellery and Gemini Clay Studio are two jewellery brands we just love!

They produce handmade, personalised pieces to carry a message, capture memories and make the perfect wedding keepsakes for your wedding day! Using a combination of semi-precious gemstones, recycled silver and ethically sourced gold, their collections are sustainably made in the UK by a team of female makers. Choose a piece from the collection that resonates with you, and connects you to special memories made on your big day!
Gemini Clay Studio produces beautiful jewellery handmade from a home studio in Ayrshire, Scotland. Sophie is the talent behind the brand and lives with her husband, Callum, and German Shepherd, Heidi. She graduated as a Product Designer, however, she’s always had a real passion for jewellery and began making her own in 2021. After a lot of interest, she decided to start her own business and specialise in handmade, bespoke earrings for brides and bridal parties. Understanding your style and the vision you have for your wedding day, is integral to what Gemini Clay Studio’s do. After an initial consultation, Sophie will create mood boards and concept sketches. These ideas and specifications will be developed to produce a unique design just for you and can be kept forever as a beautiful memento from your special day.
Floral Drawings and Paintings Wedding Keepsakes
All about that flower power? If you're spending a chunk of your wedding budget on flowers, you'll want to remember them! Choose from a painting or drawing of your bouquets, buttonholes, centrepieces and more! Recommended Suppliers, Bramble & Olive and The Custom Botanist are experts at creating beautiful wedding keepsakes!
Olivia is a Surrey-based artist behind Bramble & Olive. At the heart of her art is nature! Bramble & Olive creates original artwork in different mediums from pencil drawings to oil paintings. The subject can be anything from pets, floral bouquets or your wedding venue. From as early as she can remember, Olivia has always loved painting. Her love of art blossomed at school and it has shaped her studies and career ever since. When she has a paintbrush in her hand or is cuddling her cockapoo, Noodle, Olivia is the happiest. Being entrusted to recreate moments from a wedding day is a huge honour. One of Olivia's favourite things is getting to know couples and discovering stories behind the artwork!
The Custom Botanist, also known as Hannah, is based just outside of Manchester. With a unique alternative to the more traditional bouquet preservation options out there, Hannah draws your bouquet, table arrangements, or buttonholes using photographs taken on your wedding day. Hannah is a flower ADDICT and takes such delicate care with every piece she creates. She's the happiest when clients tell her they've cried (happy tears) when seeing their artwork for the first time. Using a combination of watercolour and pencil Hannah can perfectly match the colours from your original flowers exactly. And don't forget, the symbol for the first year anniversary is paper, so what better way to remember those beautiful bridal blooms than with a bespoke piece of artwork that will last forever!
Wedding Poem Keepsakes
Maybe you'd rather show your love with words. Having a custom wedding poem is a wonderful wedding favour idea that doubles up as a keepsake!

Live Illustrators Wedding Keepsakes
Wedding photos are obviously an essential wedding keepsake to capture those special moments exactly as they are. Did you know that photos aren't the only way to do that? Using a live wedding illustrator you can have your first kiss as a married couple, your first dance or even your wedding venue immortalised forever in a gorgeous piece of artwork. This also doubles up as fantastic entertainment for your guests!
The Wedding Illustrator is a Somerset-based artist but travels to weddings in the UK and abroad to be able to draw your wedding day! The Wedding Illustrator starts drawing just before the ceremony and continues until the dancing is well underway, so there will be between 15-20 sheets of A3 drawings which typically include the ceremony, reception, wedding breakfast, cake cutting, first dance, music and dancing. The work is completed in the week following the wedding and along with an illustrated title page, the pages are presented in a bespoke portfolio made by a skilled bookbinder to match your wedding colour scheme as closely as possible. These will be sent by special delivery 4-6 weeks after the wedding.
