An Evening in Florence

Side swept wedding hairstyles exudes relaxed femininity and timeless elegance. There’s something utterly romantic about exposed shoulders and loose hair that adds an element of softness like no other hairstyle.

There are many ways to achieve this look without going the distance with a defined side swept hairstyle. If you’ve fallen in love with a romantic updo, you can achieve a similar feel with accessories – think a delicate hair piece positioned to the side behind the ear.

A floral hair comb for Thuy

French bride Thuy was in touch with us about designing a beautiful hair comb for her wedding day. Thuy loved the ALESSIA hair comb – especially the soft floral details and sheer silver leaves. She envisaged something a little longer and larger, and something she could position to the side of her updo.   Over the course of several emails, she shared photos of her beautiful dress, bridal hairstyle and face shape and together we brought her vision to life.

In addition to the delicate details, we love how her pretty hair comb can be styled to the side of her updo and also worn to the side of long loose curls. Two beautiful looks in one.

Customisable to suit you

We are proud of our made to order and bespoke mandates. We love to bring our brides into the design process to create pieces that meet their vision and hair goals. If you’d like to chat about a custom piece, feel free to get in touch. We’d love to work with you to create something beautiful.

Why do we offer bespoke? Because there’s thousands of wedding dresses out there, and thousands of hairstyles, multiple face shapes, so many different hair types.  We truly don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to our wedding accessories and veils because our brides are all so unique.  You might prefer a blush and silver hair comb but the headpiece you love seems to only be available in gold and ivory? Perhaps not, get in touch and there’s a really good chance we can design it for you in the colour palette of your choice.

All of our designs are designed and handcrafted in our Canberra, Australia studio. This gives us complete control over the whole design and construction process and we always encourage our brides to send us photos of their wedding dresses, hairstyles and face shapes so we can recommend the best styles for them.

A bespoke blush and silver hair comb

Bride Jacqueline is a perfect example of how we love to assist our brides. Jacqui loved the blush and silver details of our TEAROSE hair pin but preferred the styling of the ARTEMIS hair comb. While the styles are similar in size, there are differences between them which limit how they can be worn. So, we tweaked the design of TEAROSE so that Jacqui could wear it to the side of her head to frame her side swept hairstyle. We filled it in a little, lengthened it a tad, shifted some of the details, positioned it on a comb and ensured that when styled on the right, the details were all facing the correct way.

We love this chic and petite hair piece. It’s dainty and delicate – the perfect size for side swept hairstyles but also any wedding updo or loose bridal hairstyle.
