Britten is an independent bag and accessory company based in Bath. Owner and designer Sarah specialises in creating unique and one-of-a-kind pieces for her clients, many of which are perfect for weddings. Her new feather fan range is a fantastically unique idea for a bride who doesn’t want to carry a traditional bouquet, and as well as that the feather fans are something you can keep forever.

Elsie peacock feather fan – £84

“My new wedding range features unique alternatives to the traditional bouquet with peacock feather fans and ostrich feather fans.” Sarah writes. “I adore 1920′s deco style and wanted my accessories to reflect the era. In particular the peacock feather encapsulates everything I love about it. For my own wedding I started off thinking about designing a bouquet with flowers and peacock feathers but then got sad as I didn’t want something such a big part of the day to die so quickly. So I started designing ‘bouquet’ accessories (for me and my beautiful ladies) that would last forever. I’m delighted with the final results and happily reminded of my wedding whenever I glance at my own peacock fan sat on the dressing table.”
