Fox & Bear Personal – Bear’s Wedding Ring

Personal Wedding

I’m in the market for a new wedding ring. It makes me sad but I’m going to have to get a new one before my wedding band breaks and I lose it for good.

I should probably explain that when we we’re planning our wedding, I broke from the traditional metal and went for a wooden ring. When we were looking for wedding bands I just couldn’t find anything that was right for me. We are strong believers in couples doing what is right for them when it comes to getting married. For me, I just wasn’t getting excited about silver or gold (seemingly the only choices for grooms back when we were planning). Vicky suggested looking for something that wasn’t the norm and we ended up discovering Stout Woodworks.

My wedding ring

We’ve been married since 2014. For the last 3 and half years I’ve worn this ring day in day out, but daily wear has taken it’s toil. It’s scuffed and scratched and even has a huge gouge taken out one side from when I was stupid and fell off a skateboard. I’m clumsy. I know that one day I’m going to snap it by accident. I don’t want it to end up in bits. It’s a testament to Stout Woodworks that I haven’t broken it already. Although I will replace it, I certainly won’t throw this ring away. The scuffs and dents hold so many memories and feelings. Even if it’s in bits I will keep this piece of wood forever.

What would you do?

What do you think? Are wedding rings replaceable? Would you ever consider changing yours? Fashion and tastes change, would that convince you? I always knew that I would replace it one day, but I’m not sure where to go from here.

Newborough Beach Elopement Inspiration Earlier this year we teamed up with some of our favourite North Wales suppliers and headed to Newborough beach on Anglesey. Vicky and I (Fox & Bear 😜) love Newborough beach and have always considered that it would make an amazing (if crazy) elopement destination. Anglesey has some of the best beaches in North Wales. If you're looking for rolling dunes, pine woods and stunning seascapes then Newborough is the place to be. Just a short walk along the beach and you end up at Llanddwyn Island, the home of St Dwynwen (Wales' very own valentine saint). It's such a stunning place and perfect for any hopele ...

The Fox & Bear Guide – Wedding Boots
Wedding Boots With the unpredictable British weather, we will always suggest that you pack a pair of wellies for your wedding day. That way, if the weather takes a turn for the worse, you will be prepared for a bit of mud. Lets face it, they also make for a fun photo. Dewi certainly isn't afraid of a bit of bad weather, and will always encourage you to head outside for photos if you are feeling up for it. We love a pair of wellies, they are a staple for us living in Wales, but there has been a shift in the wedding scene recently towards brides wearing more unusual footwear. So we thought we would throw the idea of wedding boots your way. ...
