The LYRIC headpiece is a much loved style from the collection, featuring an elegant willow-like design which offers a carefree detail to natural and relaxed bridal hairstyles. The pale golden palette combined with soft ivory flowers evoke a mood of bohemia and when paired with a classic wedding gown, the look is next level.

To our joy, our New Zealand bride Taylor loved the detailing and look of the LYRIC style but it was a little too long for her classic wedding gown which featured an elegant boat neckline and low cowl back. We love to work one-on-one with our brides and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Taylor to modify the design to better suit her look.

A classic wedding gown and relaxed updo

Taylor’s bridal look is the ultimate in classic styling. Her vision was to pair the boat neckline and cowl back of her Trish Peng wedding gown with a beautiful relaxed low set updo. These timeless details are an elegant combination and we wanted to ensure her headpiece accentuated the lines on her gown and the aesthetic of her overall look.

Proportions are very important when we design our pieces. Where a headpiece is too large, it can overwhelm the other details and can draw attention away from the beauty of a dress or bridal hairstyle. Ensuring Taylor’s headpiece was balanced and proportional to the rest of her look was our main priority.

A bespoke floral comb for Taylor

We scaled back the length of the original LYRIC headpiece by 10cm so its dimensions matched our LUCILLE headpiece.

This shortened length allowed it to sit in her hair with a soft curve which was proportional to her updo and also mimicked the lines of her low cowl back.

Taylor had also chosen a cathedral length veil with a tulle wrapped comb so this was another factor we needed to consider when designing her headpiece.  To ensure the comb of her veil would be covered sufficiently, we filled in the centre with extra flower details, more pale golden leaves in various sizes and additional pearl sprigs to add fullness and texture.

The finished headpiece feels effortless, classic and sophisticated – the perfect accessory to complete her bridal ensemble.

We are thrilled Taylor loves her headpiece.
