Gioia Mia featured on 'West End Girl'

Hallo everyone

I've had the loveliest write up ever, from the very stylish West End Girl!

Gioia Mia is 'just what the doctor ordered - local, talented, down-to-earth and unusual [...] Giving customers the "personal touch" is certainly what sets this company apart and even the website has a warm, almost journal-like approach with real-life customer testimonials and photographs of the brides wearing the pieces as opposed to a hard, corporate sell.'

Gioia Mia featured on 'Cards by Sophie'

I'm really delighted to have been interviewed by Sophie, for her blog. You can read the interview here.

Sophie is one of the UK's leading wedding stationers. Her company was recently 'Highly Commended' in the Best Stationery category of the Wedding Ideas Magazine Awards for 2011.

Cards by Sophie was set up in 2009 by Sophie Ellis-Waring after planning her own wedding and struggling to find modern wedding stationery at a reasonable price. “When I was choosing my wedding stationery, I found it so difficult to find something that was just as I wanted. I wanted to be able to personalise it, change the colours and get the design just right for me. So I decided to create a collection that is simple, stylish, contemporary and affordable... just what you're looking for.”

Sophie has since developed her own range of wedding stationery, including 18 stylish, contemporary designs. Cards by Sophie offers two ranges; in our first we have unique, handmade and completely personal designs. Each design can be customised to your requirements, for example the colours of ribbons, handmade paper or Swarovski crystals can be changed to match your wedding theme and colours. There are no set rules, the stationery is available in a range of sizes, and you can create your own wording on the inside and outside of each card.

Our second range features four fabulous printed designs. You can add your own wording on the inside and outside of the card and add an additional personal touch of a Swarovski crystal to match your wedding theme.

If you’ve got something particular in mind, we can also create a bespoke design something very special for you.

Our website has just been updated which now allows clients to order online, making it much easier and quicker to get your perfect wedding stationery. We are very proud that all of our wedding stationery is unique to us, so you will not find it anywhere else!

Stationery available includes Save the Date cards, Invitations, Menus, Order of Service, Place Cards, Table Plans, Favour boxes and much more. We offer a UK-wide service and don’t forget our fantastic 10% discount on orders over £300.

Gioia Mia featured in 'The Scottish Wedding Directory'

Hallo everyone!

I'm really delighted to have some pieces from my forthcoming ready-to-wear collection featured in the latest edition of The Scottish Wedding Directory:

One of my favourites is the Eleganza necklace and earrings. Made from sterling silver and Swarovski pearl, they are shown here in white:

Eleganza necklace £35
Eleganza earrings £30

They are, however, also available in a whole range of different shades and colours (from classic bridal tones to more dramatic hues), making them ideal for both brides and bridesmaids alike.

The team at the Wedding Directory loved the beautiful Deco necklace and earrings so much they featured it twice! The necklace and earrings are made from sterling silver, with clear Swarovski crystal and white Swarovski pearl.

The first shot shows a very romantic look. The Deco set is used to finish off a strapless dress, with a tulle skirt and delicate floral detailing:

Deco necklace £50
Deco earrings £70

The second shot shows a sophisticated, glamorous look. Here the Deco set is used to finish off an embellished, assymetric, one-shoulder satin dress. I loved this image so much, it's now in a frame on my studio wall.

Deco necklace £50
Deco earrings £70

I also really love the Trio necklace and earrings. Dainty and with just a touch of sparkle, they are the perfect finishing touch to a whole range of different wedding dresses. The necklace and earrings are made from sterling silver, and are shown here in clear Swarovski crystal and white Swarovski pearl:

Trio necklace £45
Trio earrings £40
