I am delighted to announce I am now offering bridal consultations in London as well as my Sheffield studio – giving more brides the chance to try on and choose my accessories in person.

From Thursday February 27 I will be splitting my time between Sheffield and London which means I will be able to offer private consultations in both the north and south of England.

Whether you are unsure of which headpiece to go for and would like to try some designs on to help you choose, or you are thinking of ordering a bouquet but would like to see some samples before you order, a private consultation is a great opportunity for you to see my work for yourself and for us to talk through different options to help pull together your wedding day look.

Consultations are by appointment only and are available now in Sheffield and from Thursday February 27 in London. To book an appointment email

In The News

Prima magazine interviewed me for a feature about people who have turned 'upcycling' into a full time job.

It's all change for the New Year - with a brand new website design which I hope you will love!

As well as the new look, you may also notice a slight change in the business name – I’ve dropped the ‘Bouquets’ element of Debbie Carlisle Bouquets to reflect the fact that I offer much more than bouquets for your wedding day!

When I started my business as Debbie Carlisle Bouquets in 2009 my main focus was designing and creating heirloom brooch bouquets that my brides could treasure forever. But it wasn’t long before my brides started asking for other accessories to complement their bouquets and I discovered a new passion - for making bridal headpieces.

I have since released three separate collections of bridal hair accessories and also offer a range of earrings, sashes, cuffs and garters which have been chosen by brides all over the world looking for classic vintage-style pieces with a fashion-forward twist.

2014 marks my fifth year in the wedding industry and I wanted to do something special to mark the way my business has grown since 2009. As I am now as well-known for my headpiece collections as for my bouquets it seemed like the time was right to drop the ‘Bouquets’ element of my business name and rebrand to Debbie Carlisle.

I think the new look website reflects the way my style has grown - and I’ve also taken advantage of new technology to make it easier to browse my collections, catch up on all the latest Debbie Carlisle news and of course buy or place an order.

I’m really excited to unveil the new look and I am so proud of the rebrand – 2014 may have only just begun but it’s already shaping up to be an exciting new year for me!
