Say hello to our lovely partners
The Hanson & Hopewell concept is simple: Beautiful, thoughtful gifts for brides sourced from the best independent makers in the UK.
And whilst creating each box was far from simple, you could argue that the process of searching the country for gorgeous, thoughtful beauty, lifestyle and bridal keepsakes wasn’t exactly tough. Someone had to do it though didn’t they!?
From picturesque countryside farm yards, to uber cool city haunts, each product that we have handpicked for our beautiful bride-to-be gift boxes, is made with the love and care that you and your friends deserve!
