Decadent details | Art Deco wedding headpiece with hints of blue for Elizabeth
We adore Art Deco detailing. The distinctive decorative elements, the sleek silhouettes and geometric forms that reflected the free-spirited thinking of the time. It’s always exciting to see a wedding day inspired by the beauty of yesteryear, and the Art Deco era is the perfect place to source inspiration for a bridal look.
Bride Elizabeth was in touch with us to design and create a silver Art Deco wedding headpiece to complement her wedding dress. Elizabeth was after a full halo with blue details scattered across the piece in the most beautiful way. We shared images and details and got to work on creating her special piece.
And, from the moment we started work designing her piece, we fell in love. The opulence of this wedding headpiece set our hearts aflutter and the details on it took us over the edge.
The inspiration for this Art Deco wedding headpiece
We drew inspiration from our HARPER crown, an exquisite piece that’s one of our favourites from the Secret Garden collection. Staying true to the vision, we carried these elements across into the key geometric shapes in a linear fashion. The end result is strikingly simple yet ethereal, dramatic and enchanting all at the same time.
As you may have noticed in our work, we draw our inspiration from the beauty of the botanicals and the perfectly imperfect that Mother Nature has to offer. For Elizabeth’s wedding headpiece, our inspiration came from a period in time which was typified by defined shapes often broken up into decorative elements. This inspiration lead us to choose filigree and shimmering crystal details to capture the spirit of the time.
How to style this headpiece
We love to style this piece with wedding gowns with a nod to the past. Think long flowy wedding dresses, vintage gowns, lace dresses, tea dresses, playful skirts and modern silhouettes with a hint of history.
This full halo was designed with Elizabeth’s wedding hairstyle and head circumference in mind. The back section tapers off ever so elegantly into a narrower section to frame her hairstyle and wedding veil.
This piece is sturdy yet flexible and can be worn across the forehead as a flapper-inspired piece, or worn further back in the hairline for an updated and modern look.
