Exquisite Bridal Accessories and Adornments
Victoria Fergusson Accessories is a small design studio offering beautiful bridal accessories and adornments to brides who appreciate the finer details of craft and design. Among the collections you will find hair adornments, jewellery, belts and dress appliqués of the most extraordinary quality.
Victoria graduated from The London College of Fashion with a degree in Costume and Make-up for the Performing Arts. We caught up with her to find out how she has turned her passion for costume into a thriving bridal business.
What inspired you to set up Victoria Fergusson Accessories?
I’ve been fascinated with beads for as long as I can remember, so my job is born out of a passion and obsession, which makes me very lucky.
I work from a small studio in my home, where I am surrounded by all my beading paraphernalia; threads, fabrics, pack upon pack of Swarovski crystal, strings of freshwater pearls and little pots of seed beads.
Every bead, sequin, and gem is hand stitched, and I’m a perfectionist with the keenest eye for detail so each finished accessory is a small work of art.
How wonderful. And what do you enjoy most about the wedding marketplace?
What could be nicer than working with brides planning their special day? Creating the finer detail of a bride’s wedding day ensemble is a privilege, as I really believe it’s these finishing touches that make all the difference. My hope is that my pieces will become treasured keepsakes from such a special day.
I also love collaborating with other like minded wedding professionals on creative projects.
Well, we hope you’ll enjoy being part of Love & Lilah. What was it that attracted you to our site?
The opportunity to showcase my designs to brides who are specifically looking for all the smaller details for their wedding day. A lovely shopping experience where brides will find wonderful British based artisans.
That’s certainly what we hope to achieve. Are you a big fan of British design?
I passionately believe in buying British. We have an incredible design legacy in the UK and I’m proud to do my bit to keep small, independent business thriving.
By working with a UK designer you can be more involved in the process and enjoy exceptional customer service, resulting in the perfect finished product.
That’s so true. Do you have any tips for those just starting out in this business?
Follow your heart and believe in your vision, stay focused and work hard to make it a reality.
Sound advice. And what about those who are shopping for their wedding?
Choose things you fall in love with and don’t settle for less. Choose people and services whom you like and will enjoy dealing with. Every so often if the planning gets a bit overwhelming, remind yourself what it’s all about; you and the person you want to marry.
Thank you, Victoria. We’re so pleased to be working with you.
