Born in Anderlecht in Belgium, Olivier trained as a haute cuisine chef but had always been interested in design. He moved to London in 1997, and worked as a model and food stylist, whereby developing a sharp flair for style, detail and design, before setting up his own business.
The Original Idea
The idea of creating a range of luxury wedding ring cushions came to Olivier Laudus in 2004 after he tried unsuccessfully to find one for his own wedding. It was then he decided to commission his own. The reaction Olivier received from all who saw their ring cushion, convinced him to share this with others.
At the end of 2007 Olivier Laudus became the destination for jewellery and bridal accessories with over 1000 impeccably designed items to choose from. Today the collection features a variety of reception accessories like white leather guest books but Olivier Laudus’ real strength lies in providing beautifully designed jewellery and hair accessories which have been featured in countless bridal and fashion publications.
Each product line is personally chosen by Olivier and he is constantly searching the globe to find new and exciting products to add to the range.
"My aim from the beginning has been to try to provide brides-to-be with an enjoyable and easy shopping experience while offering stylish and beautiful wedding accessories at affordable prices."
