We often wish we could travel to every wedding of our gorgeous brides. Their love stories are infectious. For our Japanese bride Lena, who lives in the US and her Danish beau; their love spanned three continents, cultures and traditions. Rather than asking their friends and family to travel great lengths, they took their love and party to them – celebrating with two fabulous weddings!

Gorgeous Lena honoured her beautiful mother by wearing her dress and veil. So much detail went in to redesigning the vintage lace to perfectly fit Lena’s elegant long, lithe frame.

Lena contacted us to create a bespoke piece to wear with an updo that would complement her beautiful lace-edged veil. Inspired by our EVERLY, we customised a headpiece with sparkly crystals in navette, tear drop and round shapes. The crystals add a classic, romantic quality that work so elegantly with the delicate beading details of Lena’s dress.

Danish wedding | Elegant lines

We’ve had a few brides host two weddings. And most like to differentiate each with something a little different.

For Lena – she chose to style her hair differently, starting with a romantic chignon at her Danish celebration.

Nestled into the top of her updo, the customised EVERLY headpiece creates a beautiful line at the nape of her neck. The veil comb has been aligned with the headpiece, sitting just behind, that when the blusher is removed, drapes from the same position.

Japanese wedding | Royal classique

For their Japanese wedding, Lena wore her hair in a high ballerina bun with a centre part. Creating an almost tiara-like look, the EVERLY has been wrapped around the front and sides of the updo.

Tucked between the headpiece and ballerina bun, is the veil comb – with Lena looking ever so like a royal bride.
