An Evening in Florence

Bride Pauline was in touch with us last year about commissioning a floral wedding headpiece for her wedding. Her ceremony and reception will be set in Old Westbury, Long Island in the USA, and she was after a headpiece that was a natural extension of her bridal aesthetic.

Pauline shared photos with us of her exquisite wedding gown, her half up hairstyle, and her favourite designs from our collection for inspiration.  And we swooned, oh how we swooned!

We see a lot of wedding dresses working with our brides. But the very moment we laid eyes on Pauline’s wedding dress we all gasped. Her chic gown burst with femininity, an abundance of lace details and an unforgettable silhouette featuring a full flowing skirt.

The inspiration

The FLORENCE headpiece was Pauline’s favourite from our collection. She sought a fuller headpiece in ivory, gold and subtle blush pink tones. Pauline loved the warmth of blush but didn’t want any dramatic pink elements, so we kept the blush tones to a minimum.

This floral wedding headpiece was inspired by the delicacy and beauty of baby’s breath and featured Pauline’s favourite elements from the Florence crown. While her headpiece is a full halo, we ensured it felt and looked lightweight whilst still bursting with floral elements.

How to style this floral headpiece

We love this crown because it suits perfectly imperfect loose curls, romantic updos and fuss free hair. This headpiece was designed to fit the circumference of Pauline’s head, and also allows for volume for when her hair is professionally styled. It secures to the hair with bobby pins which can be easily threaded through the loops at the ends of this headpiece.

This headpiece can be worn with or without a wedding veil. Pauline will be wearing our DAHLIA chapel veil on her wedding day so we ensured they would fit snuggling and seamlessly together.

If you love this crown, or if you would love a wedding headpiece custom made just for you, get in touch. Let’s create something beautiful.

The inspiration for our designs come from places far and wide. Nature is easily our most profound influence, but we are also inspired by our brides from around the world, their cultures, the unique places and spaces they live in, and of course, romantic and enchanting colour palettes.  In designing this latest gold and blush floral wedding crown, we drew inspiration from blossoming wild flowers in a golden field in the south of France.

The Wild Flowers blush floral wedding crown is a modern take on the traditional tiara or flower halo. It’s the best of both worlds if you love the carefree aesthetic of a flower crown but also love the luxe vibe of a tiara or crown. This delicate piece feels like a vine of blooms and foliage weaving its way along your hairline. Its height complements a range of face shapes and hairstyles without feeling overwhelming.

This pretty piece is set on a fine metal base so it doesn’t pinch behind the ears to cause pain or annoyance. We don’t like headaches on a wedding day either!

A customisable colour palette

This delicate crown feels wild and enchanting, combining soft tones of gold, rose gold, blush and soft champagne. This colour palette suits a range of hairstyles and hair colours to create a mood that’s feminine and romantic. You might be able to relate – rose gold and blush tones will always have a soft spot in our hearts. It’s been a popular colour choice for brides over the years and we don’t think it will be going anywhere anytime soon. This timeless and sophisticated palette is romantic, lush and inspiring. Perfect for a beautiful wedding day.

We love the idea of customising this floral wedding crown in other colour palettes to suit your mood and bridal vision boards. A colour combination which would look exquisite is an antique silver, empire blue and soft ivory tones for a crown that’s moody and whimsical. We also love the idea of gold with mauve or lilac tones for a piece that’s deliciously enchanting.
