Hi French wedding readers, Jo Barnes here!! Creator of all things sparkly and beautiful!!

I am very excited to be submitting my very first guest post on here and wanted to share with you the latest Jo Barnes collection…

This collection launched 1st April 2013 and is based on the roaring 20s!! One of my favourite eras. The highest quality Swarovski crystals are used in each design most of which contain crystal and pearl drops a popular style in the 20s. A photo shoot is yet to take place in May but in the meantime I have chosen some fabulous bridal gowns by wonderful French designers to give you a little inspiration…

The Ardella headdress was created based on one of the Jo Barnes classics “Zelda” as I had a lot of requests from brides to create the “Zelda” piece without pearls so this beauty is just full of sparkling crystals.
