An Evening in Florence

A silver wedding crown with pearls is one that will never go out of style. It’s refined, sophisticated and luxurious. It ticks all the right boxes – not too sparkly, a beautiful balance of texture and detail, and not to forget, feminine and striking.

Finding that perfect headpiece or wedding crown can be a challenge. Matching details and colours is one thing. But then to also factor in your face shape, hairstyle, proportions and your hair type all need to be taken into consideration. This is exactly why we live by our custom made mandate – because not all brides are alike.

We love the look of a wedding crown with pearls because we feel the subtle shimmer of a pearl adds the loveliest feminine touch to a headpiece. Freshwater pearls combine perfectly with sparkly crystal elements in a way that’s sophisticated and timeless.

The inspiration - Ryonna's wedding dress

The loveliest bride Ryonna was in touch about a custom wedding crown for her wedding day. She plans to wear two statement wedding gowns – a striking ball gown with sculptural ruffled details along the neckline in soft ivory tones. The second look will be a blush/champagne dress of equal beauty and delicacy.

We worked with Ryonna to create her perfect crown – one that brought together her favourite details from our collection, and one that complemented both dresses and her hairstyle.

Bride Ryonna loved the floral motifs of our FLEUR crown and ROSEBURY crowns, the delicacy of our TEMPEST crown and the fullness of our CARLA tiara. She also sought a silver and ivory palette against her dark hair.

A custom silver wedding crown with pearls

In designing this crown, we embarked on a unique scalloped edge to complement the lines of the ruffled edge on her ball gown. Her designer wedding dresses featured couture craftsmanship, delicate beaded elements and strong lines which all needed to be taken into account. It’s important that a headpiece or accessories don’t draw attention away from the dress. Instead, the perfect headpiece should accentuate the gown, as well as the face shape and proportions of the bride wearing it.

Custom wedding crowns and bridal accessories

Finding the right crown for you and your wedding dress depends on a lot of factors. Firstly, your wedding dress – of course! And of equal importance are other considerations including your face shape, wedding hairstyle, position of your hairline, hair type, your height and proportions, your bridal jewellery, your skin tone and your hair colour… Not to mention the venue of your wedding. A seaside wedding calls for quite different accessories to a cathedral or backyard wedding. And of course, there’s cultural considerations and superstitions that also need to be taken into account.

We specialise in custom wedding accessories because we understand the challenge of finding that perfect dress. We absolutely and whole heartedly understand the challenges of finding accessories to bring together the whole bridal look in a way that feels like you and not like a bridal costume that’s been handed to you.

If you’re looking for the perfect details to finish your bridal look, feel free to get in touch. Send us photos of your wedding dress including close up photos, images from your hair trial (if any), your bridal jewellery, shoes, and your face shape. We’d love to work with you to create your bridal heirloom.

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.

If you love this piece, or would like a piece designed just for you, feel free to get in touch. Send us an email with details of your wedding look and your vision and we can start the beautiful journey of bespoke.
