Lab Diamonds, an ethical and cheaper alternative to mined diamonds? 

Lab diamonds hold identical chemical, optical and physical properties to mined diamonds, making them the closest alternative to mined diamonds. As the name suggests, lab diamonds are created in a laboratory through replicating the high temperatures and high pressure conditions which occur in the Earth’s crust where diamonds form. Lab grown diamonds are real diamonds, displaying the same fire, sparkle and brilliance as natural diamonds, making it impossible to distinguish between the two. These ethical diamonds can be considered more desirable than natural diamonds as they are free from flaws and impurities that are acquired in the formation and mining of natural diamonds. 40% cheaper than mined diamonds with lower environmental impacts yet just as luxurious, dazzling and durable, lab diamond engagement rings are perfect for those who want a real diamond without the financial and environmental cost associated with mined diamonds.

Lily Arkwright only sources and sets IGI and GIA certified lab diamonds so you can be confident that your diamond has been expertly crafted and have the peace of mind that your lab diamond meets your specific requirements.

Bridal Style: Amazing Flower Girl Outfit Ideas

Your big day has finally arrived, and like your own dress, the dresses of your bridal party need to be perfect. But, from bridesmaids to flower girls, keeping on the theme while ensuring everybody is comfortable and happy can seem complicated.
But it does not have to be. Whether you are following the classic wedding style or opting for something more casual on the beach, choosing between formal dresses and girls sandals for the perfect flower girl look can be one more thing to check off.

Things to Remember

Before you rush off to find the perfect outfit for your flower girls, there are some essential things to keep in mind. First, although large parts of the outfit will be decided by the colour scheme of your wedding and the overall theme, younger children can be quite temperamental when it comes to wearing clothes they don’t like.
After all, this is something they will have to wear for the duration of the event. Therefore, if possible, look for options not too constricting and lined with softer, breathable materials, like linen or cotton. As much as possible, stick to materials that require very little maintenance in terms of ironing, such as tulle, crepe, or lace. It is summer, so consider lighter fabrics that won’t get too hot as the day progresses.
And lastly, don’t buy any outfits too far in advance. Kids grow much quicker than adults—factor in growth spurts and changing shoe sizes to guarantee their ultimate comfort on the day.

Nia and Llyr’s Rustic Farm Wedding in Bangor by Cat Arwel Photohgraphy

Happy Tuesday everyone, today I am taking you over to Wales, Bangor to be exact near Snowdonia for this delightful wedding, set on the bride and grooms friends farmland. This was Nia and Llyr’s 2nd wedding, the first was cancelled due to Covid, so this is their wedding 2.0 and what a wonderful wedding it is. They went for natural tones, against the barn backdrop, lots of dried flowers and some super pretty handmade projects. Big thanks to Cat Arwel Photohgraphy for the lovely photos.

Nia and Llyr were married on 21st May 2022 (after a cancellation due to covid in June 2021) at Tyn Y Ffridd Farm in Bangor, near Snowdonia (our friend’s place). ‘After a lockdown postponement our friends offered us their place, we couldn’t resist. It had such charm and character. We all worked hard over the next 12 months to get it wedding ready… and there we have it. We both love DIY and the barn/industrial vibes so this was just perfect. We had 110 guests and 12 months to plan with a couple added on with a new venue after cancellation.’
