The tradition of the veil spans back over hundreds of years, where the bride wore one to cover her hair and face as a symbolic reference of her virginity. However, nowadays they are simply another gorgeous addition to the wedding day look.

A wedding veil can instantly transform the look of your aisle style, adding that extra ‘wow’ factor that every bride wants. If you’ve got your heart set on wearing a wedding veil, it’s important to think about your chosen hair style and your wedding dress. We always recommend choosing your gown first so that you can opt for bridal hair accessories that complement and enhance the design. This will make it a lot easier to know what details to match to your jewellery or veil, and you will have the chance to think about what you’d like your ‘overall’ style to be, whether that’s classic romance or fashion-forward.

The Cathedral Veil

Dramatic and luxurious, the cathedral veil is one of the most formal veils you can find. The train is much longer than the wedding dress, so it really is a style that will make a statement. We suggest pairing it with something that effortlessly exudes elegance, such as the Bryony’ Hair Vine.

The Chapel Veil

Another rather formal style, the chapel wedding veil is equally beautiful but it is only a little longer than the dress. A romantic choice for any bride, pair it with our simply stunning ‘Crystal Leaf’ Hair Vine.

The Juliet Cap Veil

Inspired by the 1920s and 1930s, the Juliet Cap wedding veil was rocked by Kate Moss at her wedding. Give your bridal look a touch of bygone glamour with your wedding hair accessories by teaming the Juliet Cap veil with our ‘Iris’ Hair Pins.
