Layers of Lace | A bespoke lace wedding headpiece with pearls for Sarah
We loved working on this layered beauty for South African bride, Sarah. Sarah dreamed of a lace wedding headpiece to complement her wedding dress. And, as her husband is Australian, she thought this would be the perfect way to bring a little ‘Australia’ into the festivities! Oh, what a beautiful sentiment and what an honour it was to be involved in their special day.
We design our pieces to be heirlooms and we love how brides are looking for unique ways to add a bit of their story and unique style into their wedding accessories. Many of our brides pass their pieces onto their daughters, sisters or friends after the wedding day. We feel so lucky to be part of their journeys. After the day has been and gone, and the dress is packed away, our beautiful pieces can be passed on or carefully stored in our signature navy boxes for safe keeping.
The inspiration behind Sarah’s custom lace headpiece
Sarah was inspired by two very different headpieces from our collection: the clay flower and pearl details from our Marion headpiece and the lace elements from the Mariana. Her wedding dress exudes classic appeal – a clean and modern silhouette, French lace details across the bodice and neckline, and a stunning plunging low back. With these details in mind, we started dreaming up her beautiful piece.
This headpiece was designed to be worn with or without a wedding veil. We wanted her headpiece to be a ‘veil cover’ and to frame the top section of the veil during the ceremony. Sarah will be styling her hair in a low set updo so this symmetrical piece will look beautiful even after she’s removed the veil for the reception.
Sarah will also be wearing a veil on her wedding day – our Audrey minimalist veil – which will pair perfectly with this exquisite lace hair piece. We also love the idea of this textured piece with an embellished veil also. Our Loren chapel veil with pearls would also look incredible with this comb. Photos below:
Style it with a drop veil
As Sarah will be styling her headpiece with our Audrey chapel veil, we also captured it with a sheer drop veil below. Scroll below to find this beautiful piece paired with our Blair drop veil – a classic drop veil which features less gathers than the Loren.
We love this headpiece with both veils – we couldn’t pick a favourite! Do you have a favourite?
