The entire process of making your wedding rings takes a day. So if you are looking at a coming down to view our beautiful hotel for an exclusive use wedding or have booked for one then you can make your rings while you are here. You can either take your rings away at the end of the day or the school can arrange engraving or hallmarking. The school is confident that complete beginners who have never made jewellery before will go away with rings they are proud of. Photographs will be taken throughout the entire process making this a wonderful memory and keepsake for you to take away.
