I began designing and making bridal accessories for my own wedding in 2009, and I just couldn’t stop! I’m incredibly lucky to still be creating accessories for brides and wedding boutiques all over the world more than ten years on.
My pieces have a deconstructed, wild and natural, bohemian feel with a classic and sometimes vintage edge. They also have a delicate ethereal element – from tiny hairpins to statement headbands and hair vines. I use only the most beautiful, high quality materials like Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls and mother of pearl flowers.
My 2020 collection, Moonlight, continues my obsession with the natural world and the starry night sky. The moon features heavily in my inspiration for this celestial collection of hairpins, combs, hair vines and statement chandelier earrings. Large, dramatic Swarovski pearls and delicate crystal stars are the key materials in the collection, with a delicate yet statement star-spangled crown being my new favourite.
My designs are available to buy online via my website, Etsy and Not On The High Street, and are also stocked by a network of boutiques across the UK and beyond. Alternatively, brides can visit my light and welcoming Sheffield studio, which includes a beautiful plant-filled consultation area where I host one to one accessory styling sessions by appointment. A consultation is a relaxed and organic process as we browse through my designs to figure out what will work best for the look that is desired.
I also craft bespoke accessories, pinning down what appeals to a bride through my existing designs and then tailoring these to their individual requirements to create something wholly unique.
I cannot recommend the beautiful pieces that Debbie creates enough! I had the beautiful Sybil hairvine for my wedding day and it was absolutely perfect and so special. Everyone kept saying to me now beautiful it looked so I was over the moon. I always loved having the opportunity to go along to Debbie's studio to try on the different pieces to decide what was right for me. Thank you so much to Debbie!Bethany Ford
Debbie made a head dress for my daughters wedding. The whole experience of going to her studio and her designing a piece especially for my daughter was very special. On the day everyone loved the piece and we now have a special head dress to keep and share with future generations. Cannot recommend Debbie enough of you are looking for a special item for a special day.Lynn Andrews
Was thrilled with the headband I ordered! Beautiful, elegant, artful, unique. Outstanding customer service was an added bonus. Won’t hesitate to recommend Debbie Carlisle to anyone looking for that special compliment to her wedding gown.Jenny Witt
