Wedding dresses with classic simple lines and minimal detailing look fabulous teamed with a statement bridal headpiece. The drama and wow factor this winning combination brings will draw gasps of admiration at a wedding and look breath-taking in photographs.


On a recent photoshoot the model bride wore an elegant silk figure hugging dress with soft drapes at the hem and a flowing train. The back had a beautiful keyhole feature with the neckline and shoulders embellished with masses of delicate silver beading and dainty diamante that glittered in the light.


As a wedding accessory designer I wanted to create a statement bridal headpiece that echoed the silvery detailing of the dress, but also offered versatility in terms of whereabouts the bride wore it in her hair.


 An asymmetrical hair vine design with trails of dazzling diamante and sparkling clear crystals flowing from a sparkling feature on a small comb was the answer.


The diamante bridal hair vine I designed can be worn at the back of a bride’s head in a reverse halo fashion or, slightly to one side at the front with the asymmetric glittering sprays radiating out and framing the face.


The wedding headpiece is extremely easy to fix in the bridal hair with just a few pins needed to secure the diamante vines in place.

I have yet to name the new headpiece but it has already received a lot of interest once it appeared on social media following the photo shoot. This statement diamante hair vine is perfect for winter weddings or destination weddings too where it will catch the light and sparkle beautifully.
