Curating the Collection
It had been a longer period than usual since we last came up with some new veil designs. We normally have a new collection every Autumn, but Autumn of 2018 was all about the new website launch and there just wasn’t time for everything. So, of course, as creative people, we’d been storing up a looooooot of new veil ideas! We keep a little list on the corkboard in our sewing studio and make notes every time we fall in love with a new lace or come up with a new beading design. Well, as you can imagine, after just under 2 years of adding to it, that list was nice and long. And try as we might, we just couldn’t bring ourselves to give up any of the ideas we’d had to make the list any smaller. And let me tell you, when we were in the depths of the sewing stage, we definitely started to wish we’d been able to!
Keeping our brides happy 🙂
As well as the new designs we were working on, we also knew we needed to fill in a few gaps in our current range with some of our fairly simple, but very popular, veil styles. For example, we only had a two tier chapel length veil with scattered diamantes — Nadia — and we knew we had to add a single layer option for our brides. (See Bianca). This might not be the most exciting design for us to sew, but we know our brides are looking for this kind of veil. We can see them ordering it as a custom veil in our Custom Veil Designer section, so we wanted to provide that for them as a set-style to make life easier .
It’s always better when you have a pretty picture to order from, right?
A Few Favourites
We won’t include every single veil in this post. To see them all, you can just go to our veil collections page here: Bridal Veils. But we did want to include just a few of our personal favourite images from our latest shoot. This was actually another first for us this year — we did the photography, and the hair and makeup, all by ourselves so we’re all feeling very accomplished and slightly smug about how nice they turned out.
Oh, and our model is Shannon, one of our seamstresses! 🙂
We hope you all love our new veils as much as we do. If you do, please share them with other brides. We appreciate every like, pin, post and share we receive.
We’re off to start planning our 2021 collection!
