The Icon

"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years."

— Audrey Hepburn

Every girl, at some point in their life, has dreamed of her wedding day, even just a little; The prince charming, the romantic setting, the flowers, the dress! We have all grown up with our princess idols, whether it be your fantasy Disney princesses; the lovely Miss Sleeping Beauty or the beautiful Belle and her beast, or the old, romantic black and white movie stars of Miss Monroe's era that we grew up watching with our mothers.
We all dream of starring in our own fantasy as bell of the ball and being swept off our feet by our own dazzling prince charming. It's fantasies such as these that our trusty, Barbie and Ken dolls, re-enacted on many occasions and the dream of Happily Ever After was firmly embedded within our imaginations.

On a day-to-day basis, we may not feel our most glamorous. Some of us are juggling work and a family, as well as wedding planning! Our beauty regimes have been forced to take a bit of a backseat during these hectic times. But at the back of your mind, you know you can rest easy and trust that by the time the big day rolls round, you will transform into a stunning creature of pure, bridal beauty, inspired by your romantic icons.

Choosing the right veil for you

A veil will complement and enhance any style of wedding dress, instantly adding an air of innocence and epitomising the traditional idea of a fairytale bride. You only have to conjure up an image of Grace Kelly in her stunning cathedral veil when she married Prince Albert of Monaco to understand why many brides feel compelled to wear one on their wedding day – especially as they are often family heirlooms, handed down through generations. But it’s important to remember that some lengths are more flattering to certain dress styles and figures than others.

Trend Setting: Tulle

Tulle, once reserved for bridal veils, is now a hot trend in the bridal design industry and is sure to take over in 2014. We love tulle and have jumped on this fabulous new trend! There is always more than one way to wear a dress and we have used the softest of tulles to create sophisticated overskirts that barely cover the delicate detailing of our gorgeous lace gowns underneath. This versatile fabric is the backbone of the illusion neckline, an ideal option for brides who want to reveal their décolletage but still want to be modest. While in other designs we have left the tulle (or French net) free from adornments. Other styles are embellished with everything from crystals to metallic beads to fine lace.
In addition to incorporating stylish adornments, we have also created stylish skirts by using layer upon layer of the transparent fabric to create soft, full ball gowns and understated A-lines; complementing any blushing bride.
