You may have noticed that Chez Bec has been a little bit quiet.... well, despite appearances, there has been a lot going on behind the scenes!

We are absolutely delighted to announce that Chez Bec has been sold to Tanya Krackowizer, Jeweller in Residence at the Hylands Estate in Chelmsford. With decades of experience creating beautiful wedding bands, sterling silver jewellery and engagement rings, Harriet and Rebecca are extremely proud (not to mention extremely happy) to be passing the business on to her. We're not sure that we could have settled for anyone else actually.

Not only is she passionate about all the important stuff Chez Bec has always been passionate about (you know, weddings, customer service and beautiful accessories), but she knows jewellery and weddings like the back of her (very skilled) hands. For brides-to-be in Essex, they can now pop along to her studio at the Hylands Estate - itself the most stunning wedding venue - and try on some sparkles and discuss designs in person, something they have been asking for for years!

The Chez Bec website will be open for orders again in January 2017, but should you need anything in the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact us at


Top Tips for Your Bridesmaids Hair Accessories

So, you’ve been mightily organised and have chosen your bridesmaids, their dresses and their shoes and you’re almost ready to tick “bridesmaids” off your ever-growing wedding-to-do-list. But, before you do, what about their hair?! Do you co-ordinate your bridesmaids hair accessories with your own? Or do you give them something totally different to your own hair accessories?

If you decide to co-ordinate your bridesmaids’ hair accessories with your own, this doesn’t mean that your bridesmaids have to wear exactly the same hair accessory as you. You are the bride after all and you need to sparkle above everyone else on your special day. Co-ordinating your bridesmaids’ hair accessories with your own means choosing the same type of hair accessory or the same materials. If you’ve chosen our beautiful Sally Hair Comb then our Vintage Viola Hair Comb would be perfect for your bridesmaids. It is of a similar style but on a smaller scale so you won’t get upstaged! If you have chosen to wear pearls on your big day, and have chosen something like our Emily Headband then giving your bridesmaids a Set of Pearl Hair Pins to scatter in their hair would complement your wedding hair accessories perfectly.

On the flip side, why not keep your bridesmaids hair accessories totally different to your own? If you’re wearing a statement pearl bridal headband or a vintage-inspired bridal hair comb, then why not give your bridesmaids flowers to wear in their hair? Our Olivia Rose Wedding Flower Clip and our Rose Cluster Flower Clip are incredibly popular with bridesmaids. They are incredibly versatile in that they can be worn anywhere in the hair, and in any hair style. They are also a cost-effective way of creating a wonderful look for your bridesmaids’ hair and just perfect for a summer wedding.

If you have three or four bridesmaids, then the cost of buying your bridesmaids’ hair accessories can start to mount up, on top of the cost of their dresses and anything else you have had to buy them. Why not give your bridesmaids their hair accessories on the morning of your wedding as their thank-you gift? It will allow for some special moments with your bridesmaids and it also means that you don’t have to buy both their hair accessories and a separate thank you gift.
