Who we are
A little bit about our veil company
The Wedding Veil Shop is made up of a team of five (lovely) people who are passionate about designing, creating and handcrafting wedding veils online for our beautiful brides, and helping them find their perfect bridal accessories.
The company was founded in 2005 by Lynsey, who’s now the Head Designer of our small team of seamstresses. We spend our days sewing veils, consulting with brides who come down to see us at the boutique, and discussing the latest episode of insert-any-reality-TV-show-here.
Something for everyone
Catering to the bespoke bride
Our brides are wonderfully unique, and we’ve always strongly believed that if you’re going to call yourself The Wedding Veil Shop, and strive to be the best veil company in town, you need to be sure you can make any kind of veil that anyone might ask you for… And so we do! Along with all the gorgeous veils on this website, we also custom make veils for brides all over the world. To date, our record veil length is a whopping 7 metres long!
My, how we’ve grown
Our humble beginnings
Our company has changed quite dramatically over the years. 2005 might not seem like all that long ago, but it was practically the dawn of time in terms of the Internet. If you could have seen our first website… Oy vey. Yet here we are, over 18 years later, still going strong! We’re more than just a veil company these days, too. We now not only sell our own veils online, but also beautiful headpieces and a whole host of other gorgeous accessories from other quality suppliers.
Our Team Members
At the head of our little Dream Team are husband and wife duo, Lynsey and Sean Taylor.
Lynsey is the original founder of the company, and the one who designs each of the veils in our collections as well as assisting brides in the creation of more unique bespoke veils. Specialising in lace veils, she loves working with brides to create something that looks as if it was designed to match with the dress from the start. She’s also the one your most likely to speak to when you contact us to discuss your ideas!
Sean specialises in our beaded veil designs. Creating dazzling displays in crystal, diamante and pearl, as well as sewing, preparing and sending out our swatch samples and brochures along with the daily dispatch of orders.
Julia is responsible for the day to day organisation of our small but very busy sewing room. Getting the orders to the corresponding seamstress, cutting out the patterns and organising the materials needed for each design.
Nik is our embroidery queen and is responsible for all the personalised veils we make, for example, ones with monograms, names and sweet, romantic phrases. This is a very busy department in our sewing studio and she’s constantly on the go!
Ruby, our newest team member, takes on the bulk of lace veil sewing often spending many hours – or even days! – meticulously hand sewing just one veil! She also sews each and every veil comb and does the final checks before they leave our hands.
We hope you’ve enjoyed finding out a little bit more about the people behind our veil company. If you’d like to get to know us even more, why not follow us on Instagram @theweddingveilshop to keep up-to-date with all the goings-on in our sewing room.
