I couldn’t resist posting these beautiful shots this morning; inspired by good friends of mine who are getting married this weekend at stunning Kleine Valleij in Wellington – this amazing vintage-inspired veil is enough to make any bride shine.
On my wedding day I wore what is called a ‘cathedral’ veil – because it’s long enough to drape on the ground. Not quite Lady Diana or Princess Catherine – but stil, it was long! But it was truly beautiful. I think veils can make such a statement as part of your outfit on your wedding day. That’s not to say go wild and go massive (think Josie from Married to Rock), but rather go stylish, go elegant and go beautiful – short, netted, full length, chin length…you name it!
This beautiful embroidered veil below has had mantilla and beaded detail delicately added to the veil, adding a little weight and a lot of prettiness. Something like this would look amazing on a simple figure-hugging dress or something with a slight fishtail skirt. Have you got any tips on veils? Been a bride or planning on getting married soon?
