Headpieces:
A headpiece or hair accessories are the perfect way to add a focal point to your wedding look; we have both embellished headpieces that are more suited to Anna Campbell or Karen Willis Holmes style dresses; or if your style of wedding has a vintage feel to it we have headpieces to suit our Claire Pettibone dresses. We have a selection of ribbon tied hair pieces, hair combs and hair bands for brides to choose from.

Hi everyone :)

Some of you may have already met me, and some may meet me in the future. I have been at Ivory & Pearl / Willow & Thread since the summer… But boy do I now know what “wedding season” actually means. Ivory & Pearl is so busy at the moment, not only do we have brides finding their gown for their weddings next year (and some last minute brides for this summer) but we also have all the alterations and bridal collections taking place. Plus Easter is this weekend… where has the time gone, it feels like it was Christmas just 2 minutes ago!


I am really enjoying seeing brides coming to see their actual wedding dresses for the first time before their big day – it’s all very exciting! They are excited but also a little nervous which is to be expected as many brides haven’t laid eyes on their dress for several months! I love seeing the emotion when brides put their dresses on, it then becomes all very real as this is THE dress, it’s not just one of our dresses but it is their dress now that they will be walking down the aisle in, in just few weeks time!


There’s so much more to weddings than I ever could have imagined! We’ve been flat out with Sample Sales and Designer Weekends. And this weekend we have our last Designer Weekend for now, Naomi Neoh. I adore these dresses, the fabric the structure, they are so romantic and elegant! So DATES… Friday 25th & Saturday 26th, Saturday is fully booked at the moment but we do have a few spaces left on Friday if you would like an appointment to view this collection please ring the boutique on 02891871135


So what am I doing over Easter – WELL my cousin is getting married this Saturday and I am so excited! It is the loveliest of occasions watching two people make a lasting promise to each other surrounded by all their loved ones. It really is the best day and I can’t wait to see how stunning she will look in her wedding dress. I am looking forward to spending my Easter weekend in the luxury of the Galgorm Hotel! I love this hotel, especially their spa! I have never been there for a wedding before but I have heard it’s fabulous and it will be a very special occasion.


What I am wearing – I got my own outfit from The Boudoir, it’s a beautiful off the shoulder Eden Row dress and I also hired a headpiece from there to match, I got my bag from Zara and my shoes are ted baker – so I can’t wait to get dressed up myself! I am getting my hair done by Hedonist Hair situated in Botanic Avenue and make up by the talented Jennifer Ireland so I really can’t wait to get pampered. I also just got my hair coloured for the first time in nearly a year by the lovely Emma Crawford, she is based just outside Comber at Pearhill tree and her studio is delightful with the added extra of a cup of tea and caramel square. I would definitely recommend paying her a visit.


It is then my birthday the following Wednesday so i have a lot to look forward to!


Whatever you are up to I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing Easter break and all the wedding preparations are coming along nicely!


Lots of love,
Kathryn xoxo
