An Evening in Florence

We love a floral bridal headpiece as much as the next bride. We can’t help ourselves – we live and breath all things delicate and beautiful, and often find floral elements can add the perfect detail to a bridal look.

A bridal headpiece bursting with floral femininity is the ultimate in bridal styling. You can pair it with a wedding veil or wear it alone as a statement piece. Either way, wear it for the wedding ceremony and dance with it into the night with just a few bobby pins holding it securely into place.

Customised for bride Nadine

We recently had the pleasure of working with German bride Nadine to create her custom ANAIS bridal headpiece with ivory clay flowers. In addition to changing the flowers, we also shortened it slightly, altered the layout to better suit her fine Chantilly lace wedding dress, her hairstyle and her general preferences for a more delicate piece.

The end result? Well, we’re obviously bias but we love how it’s the perfect balance of delicacy and jaw-dropping beauty.

Flexible to suit a range of bridal hairstyles

Our ‘made to order’ and ‘custom made’ mandates are at the heart of everything we do. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to wedding accessories. You know the struggle of finding that wedding dress that was perfect for you, and there’s no reason why off-the-shelf accessories aren’t any different.

We customise our wedding headpieces and veils to suit our bride’s height, head shapes, face shapes, jewellery – and of course, wedding dresses. There’s so much to factor in when it comes to styling a bridal look and we like to factor in all these important details to ensure the final look is seamless, timeless and beautiful.

The bridal headpiece we designed for Nadine is built on a flexible base so she can easily curve it to the contours of her head and hairstyle. We’ve photographed it styled backwards on the head but it can also be worn along the hairline as a headband/crown.

Fancy a bridal headpiece customised for you?

We love to work with our brides to create their perfect wedding accessories. If you love a piece but it’s not quite right, feel free to reach out and let us know what you’re envisaging, share details of your bridal look with photos or descriptions and we can go from there. We hope to hear from you!

The recent royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left the studio abuzz with lots of beautiful brides requesting statement wedding crowns and veils for their weddings. We’ve always gone weak at the knees when it comes to accessorising a bridal look, and it was so exciting to see Meghan’s wedding look focus so heavily on her dramatic veil and wedding crown to frame her exquisite gown. And that gown? Can we just talk about that for a second? Oh my, what a glorious gown by Claire Waight Keller of Givenchy.

A pearl and gold wedding crown

We recently completed a beautiful pearl and gold wedding crown for the loveliest Sydney bride, Yasmine. Yasmine was inspired by the CAMBRIDGE and REINA crowns and was looking for a custom crown that pulled together her favourite elements.

We were smitten with her lace wedding gown and sought to carry across some of the lace patterns from her dress onto her headpiece. That’s what we love about bespoke – the ability to bring to life our bride’s vision and also to incorporate elements from the rest of the bridal look for a more seamless finish.

The end result? We adore it, and we’d love to hear your feedback too. The gold and light ivory colour palette feels fresh and inviting – reminiscent of a golden garden scrolling along a delicate wrought iron gate.

This beautiful crown is delicate yet makes a profound statement of femininity with a nod to antiquity. An enchanting and ethereal piece that still feels modern and romantic.

How to style a pearl and gold wedding crown

The delicate crown we designed for Yasmine would pair beautifully with a set of pearl drop earrings. The beauty of this piece is in its intricate and spacious detailing, creating a lightweight focal point that can be framed with our favourite earring sets – the BELLA, LOURDES, VALENTINE, MONTAGUE and PROVENCE pearl drop earrings.

Pair this headpiece with romantic updos, all out bridal hairstyles such as loose curls, and half up hairstyles.

Considering a custom wedding crown?

We love to work with our brides one-on-one to handcraft their perfect wedding heirlooms. If you’re inspired by any styles from our collection and would like them tweaked to better suit your style and vision, feel free to get in touch.

Sometimes you find the prettiest bridal headpiece but it’s not quite right. It might be the colour, the size, or perhaps the way it’s designed isn’t 100% perfect for the vision you have in your head.

As wedding accessory designers, this is something we can completely understand and empathise with.  It’s exactly why we stand by our made to order and bespoke mandates.

We had the loveliest opportunity to work with Canadian bride Samantha to create a two-way bridal headpiece for her end May wedding day. Samantha loved the POETIC bridal headpiece but was looking for a headpiece which she could style in two different ways for her wedding ceremony and reception.

Customising Samantha's headpiece for her two bridal looks

For the ceremony, she was hoping to style it more as a headband at the top of her head. For the reception she was planning to wear it backwards to frame her bridal hairstyle.

We got to work on redesigning her headpiece so it was perfect for her two bridal looks. Wearing the same headpiece or accessory for both the ceremony and reception is a great way to get prolonged wear out of a piece. It also means that you can ensure continuity with details – i.e. you don’t have to change your earrings or other jewellery to match.

The delicate and organic details, as well as its boho chic styling, are just a few of the reasons why Samantha fell in love with the POETIC bridal headpiece the first place. So in redesigning Samantha’s piece, we wanted to ensure we retained the intrinsic nature and beauty of the piece.

To ensure the floral elements remained the perfect focal points of the piece, we repositioned the placement of the clay flowers to the sides for a more evenly distributed look.  We also scattered the delicate pearl and crystal elements along the mid section of the headpiece to ensure it could be styled with both looks.  It was a balancing act to ensure it didn’t look too bare in the mid section but we also didn’t take attention away from the clay flowers.

Samantha's ceremony bridal look

For her wedding ceremony, Samantha will be able to style her headpiece along the hair line as a headband by pinning the headpiece into place near the ears.

This beautiful look can still be paired with a wedding veil or pearl drop earrings, or even warn alone for a more simple look.

Samantha's reception bridal look

The headpiece attaches to the hair with little loops and Samantha’s hairstylist can easily position it into place with bobby pins hidden under the hair. By removing the bobby pins and flipping the headpiece to face backwards, Samantha is able to style her reception bridal look within a few minutes.

We love the look of this headpiece facing backwards and it would look gorgeous styled with half up/half down hairstyles or perhaps even all out hairstyles with soft curls.
