Wedding Veils

We are a veil company with a difference – Our small but talented team has been hand-crafting veils for brides for almost 20 years specialising in custom designs.

Our wedding veils offer something for every bride. Whether you’re looking to add a touch of sparkle to your dress, some detailed lace or simply a plain floaty layer to catch in the breeze, you’ll be sure to find what you’re looking for on our website.

Our mission is to make it super easy for our brides to find their perfect wedding veil. Either by choosing from our 100+ pre-designed styles or creating your own veil with our brilliant and interactive Custom Veil Designer. Or if you really want to create something “wow”, get in touch with our head designer, Lynsey, to discuss a truly bespoke piece.

Our sizing is extensive – from shoulder length to cathedral length and beyond. We also have a fantastic range of colour and fabric options including traditional Bridal Illusion, Italian Style, Silk Effect and our new spotted “Dotty” tulle, so finding the right one to match your dress will be simple. You can order fabric samples here: tulle samples.

And to make it even better, all our bridal veils and accessories come with Free UK Shipping and a generous 30-day returns period!

Bridal Headpieces

Find your own style with our varied range of luxury headpieces

To complement our fabulous veils, we have a stunning collection of bridal headpieces including tiaras, headbands, combs and vines.

When it comes to bridal headpieces and other wedding hair accessories, you’re going to want to think about whether you want the main detail to be visible from the front, in which case you could go for a traditional tiara or headband, or perhaps a hair vine which can be worn much like a headband, or, if you’re feeling the boho vibe, across your forehead.

Or perhaps you’d rather the headpiece be seen more from the back or side, in which case a wedding hair clip or comb would be ideal. These little guys can be positioned anywhere, including over the top of your veil’s comb. Such a versatile hair accessory.

No matter what headpiece and veil combo you have in mind, you’re sure to find some great options in our collections, or perhaps you’ll decide to create your own custom designs!

Let’s not forget those final, finishing touches. They really can make all the difference.

So once you’ve got your headpiece and veil sorted, it’s time to look at the rest of your ensemble. We have accessories that can completely transform the look of your dress such as a lace jacket with sleeves or a waist-cinching belt. We can shape out your dress with our hooped underskirts in various silhouettes, and we can provide those future heirloom pieces with our bridal garters and wedding jewellery.

Quotation Marks

“Thank you so much for my amazing veil. It was a custom design and exactly what I asked for. It will match my dress beautifully and the standard of work and detail is fantastic! I can’t wait to wear it and I am really glad I decided to use your custom order service. Also it works out much cheaper than ordering through wedding shops despite me having a one of a kind veil. Thank you again!”

“I loved the fact that I was able to custom design my veil according to what I wanted, after having received swatches so I could match the material exactly to my dress! I received my veil recently and it’s beautiful – it’s exactly what I hoped for, and so beautifully wrapped! Excellent customer as well, so thank you so much!”

Bridal Veil & Accessory Trends

What our brides are loving right now

Over the almost 20 years since our company began, we’ve seen a few bridal accessory trends come and go. Here’s our take on the current favourites.

Veils

At the moment, it’s definitely all about the long veil. Particularly, our brides are seeking out chapel length veils and cathedral length veils – sometimes even longer if they request a bespoke veil. The shorter shoulder and elbow length styles have been a bit on the back burner as of late, but fingertip is still quite a popular choice for those set on a shorter veil. For embellishments, lace veils like our Elizabeth, Harmony and Astrid styles are extremely popular from our main collections, as are the custom statement lace veils we custom make for individual brides. Simple cut edge and pencil edge styles are still popular as well as they go with so many dresses.

Looking for a custom veil? Don’t miss our article on how our bespoke lace veil ordering process works or check out our Custom Veil Designer – an online tool to help you “build” your own veil online.

In terms of tulle colours, you might have already guessed that ivory veils reign supreme as that’s what 90% of today’s wedding dresses are – some kind of off-white or ivory shade. Particularly for us, our Light Ivory illusion tulle and Pale Ivory Italian tulle —  our two bestselling shades — followed by Diamond white (an off-white shade) and Ivory Shimmer are the most popular optons. We don’t see as much call for pure White or the deeper colours like Oyster, Blush Pink or Champagne.

Headpieces

For our bridal headpieces, it’s a tale of two extremes. We’ve seen an increase in requests for small wedding combs and clips and pins, and also the big chunky statement headband is still going strong. The versatile bridal hair vine, which can be worn in so many positions, is rising in popularity with brides too. In terms of colour, silver is, and has always been, the most popular headpiece colour brides wear.

Accessories

For our other accessories… Well, you can never go wrong with a touch of “something blue” in your bridal garter. For wedding jewellery; less is always more, and a simple pendant is definitely being favoured over chunkier designs. As for bridal belts, again, we’re finding brides are wearing the smaller, narrower designs more than larger pieces.

When it comes to wedding jackets and underskirts, obviously the shape and design of the bride’s dress will dictate the style chosen so we see lots of variety in these two categories.

In sum

So there you have it. That’s our take on the current bridal accessory trends for 2024. Whether you are drawn to the trends of the day or prefer to create your own style, we know you’ll find your perfect wedding accessories for your special day here with us!
