Love is in the air, not to mention all the pomp and splendour of a Royal Wedding. For those who are planning on tying the knot in such an auspicious year and want a wedding with a difference, The Alternative Wedding Show is Yorkshire’s largest and most distinctive annual selling exhibition of contemporary bridal jewellery running from February 6th to May 3rd 2011.

Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery has been based at Salts Mill (home to the world’s largest collection of Hockney artworks) since 1996. The gallery is renowned for showcasing the work of internationally celebrated jewellery designers alongside that of emerging talent, and also holds a strong reputation for its bespoke jewellery design service.

Quoted recently in The Times Luxx Magazine, Libbert says ‘Our clients are interested in jewels that push the boundaries. We think of ourselves as an antidote to the highstreet.’

Now celebrating its tenth year, The Alternative Wedding Show features jewellery by cutting edge designers including jeweller to the stars Malcolm Morris, who has made exquisite pieces for the Duchess of Gloucester, Joan Collins and Dawn French. Morris also created the tiaras worn by Gwyneth Paltrow in Shakespeare in Love and by Amy Adams in The Wedding Date. In 2002 he was commissioned to create a contemporary tiara to commemorate Her Majesty the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.

Also on display is work by David McCaul, definitely one to watch in the world of precious contemporary jewellery for his sensually curved bejewelled rings, and Natalie Jane Harris whose personalised bespoke special occasion rings have become very collectable. There is also jewellery by Josef Koppmann - sculptural pieces which regularly feature in the pages of Vogue, Harpers & Queen, Hello Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Elle and Grazia.

An exhibition of every kind of bridal jewellery, The Alternative Wedding Show transforms Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery into a treasure trove of engagement and wedding rings, tiaras and fascinators, earrings, bracelets and necklaces all in a mouthwatering array of precious and semi-precious gems with a range of prices to suit every pocket. 

Rock Revival
A personalised design service is a strong feature of this year’s Alternative Wedding Show, and Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery is addressing the current trend for working heirloom jewels into contemporary designs by specially featuring jewellers who will work to commission and create bespoke pieces for the gallery’s clients.

Says Kath Libbert, ‘We bring together the skills and design talent of a select group of very prestigious jewellers who are happy to breathe new life into pieces that have perhaps been languishing, just waiting to be transformed into something fabulous. We offer an opportunity to work with these designers to create beautiful, one off bespoke pieces of jewellery.
