Thomas and Kate's Amazing Hobbit Themed Wedding

Thomas and Kate's Amazing Hobbit Themed Wedding

After two years of planning, Kate and Thomas had their dream wedding at a beautiful venue which would create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere at the Fleece Inn, Evesham. Thomas is a big fan of J.R.R Tolkien, so anything Hobbit themed was also a priority when it came to styling for the wedding. Thomas's ring was a Jens Hansen Elvish Love Ring in 18ct Yellow Gold fitting the theme of 'The One ring' from the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Jenny & Daniel's Wedding

Jenny & Daniel's Wedding

Daniel and Jenny became engaged at the very top of the red crater here near Mt Rongariro, New Zealand. Being engaged here in New Zealand had a part to play in keeping the rings of a more sentimental value to them, so having them made by the Jens Hansen workshop, who made the one ring to rule them all, for The Lord of the Rings seemed a perfect fit.

All Tony Bowater said was, “I got it from Jens Hansen”

“There wasn’t a lot of money for jewellery in those early years of our marriage,” Tony remembers. “We started our family – Joel, who is now 25, Jontee is 22, and Oscar is 15 – and we were mortgaged to the hilt. One year, I bought her a bottle of perfume for her birthday. She insisted I take it back and told me the money would be much better spent on nappies.”
"She wears her jewellery almost like battle armour. It’s such a part of who she is.”

Every piece, from at least half-a-dozen rings to a striking pair of gold earrings, was designed and crafted by Nelson’s much-revered jeweller, the late Jens Hansen.

Having a custom-made Jens Hansen engagement ring on her finger was adding to the enjoyment, she said. “It was really important to me that if we were going to have a ring it had to be by a Nelson jeweller. Reese said although the couple had a lot of “banter” at home, they were taking marriage seriously. “No one takes a step towards marriage lightly, and we shouldn’t.

Modern transformation of heirloom diamonds

We worked with the couple to handcraft an engagement/wedding ring using a classic Jens Hansen design and Rebecca’s very special heirloom stones. The quality diamonds we set into her beautiful ring were from four individual family rings including her mother’s engagement ring and a ring once owned by Rebecca’s grandmother.
