Many 2014 weddings will be transformed in true Gatsby style into decadent Deco affairs! Cue a big comeback for wedding forehead bands and feather flourishes. Expect to see fab Art Deco style accessories to complete the ‘Daisy’ look!
Back to Front
As more designers create fabulously embellished back panels on dresses, expect brides to look as good from behind as from the front. We are seeing increasing demand for back jewellery and striking wedding hair accessories that beautifully frame vintage style chignons.
50 Shades of Non-ivory
Soft tonal pastel shades of taupe, gold and palest pink continue to gather favour on the international bridal catwalks. Gilt or gold accessories will complement the warmth in these shades beautifully.
No doubt influenced in some small part by Downton Abbey, designers have introduced many Edwardian inspired touches in their wedding gown styling. Team with simple ribbon headbands and add more intricate flourishes through your choice of wedding jewellery and accessories (don’t forget the all important brooches and cocktail bags for this look).
Time for Tea
Tealength (or ballerina length) dresses heark back to a glamorous 1950s matinee look. These elegant gowns were everywhere on the 2014 catwalks and are just made for pearls – team with pearl earrings, pearl necklaces, pearl hair accessories and pearl bracelets for sophisticated vintage elegance.
Forget demure 30s dresses – welcome clingy, sensual satin bias cut gowns to showcase the female form as brides shimmy down the aisle. Choose sultry, sassy, minimalist bridal accessories to complement the clean lines of this look.

Allowing more flexibility than the traditional wedding headband, an increasing number of our brides are opting for wedding hair combs and wedding hair clips or pins that can be placed as a beautiful accent feature to their vintage look.
Pearl wedding hair combs and pins work well with so many vintage bridal looks with their varying colour shades from soft ivory to bright white.
That authentic flapper vintage wedding look can be easily attained with the addition of two wedding hair clips or slides worn on one side of the head – even better with some fabulous Marcel waves!
Bridal hair accessories with Art Deco styling continue to appeal to those planning a vintage wedding – think clean cut geometric and swirl designs.

Vintage botanical prints have not only seen a re-emergence on the homewares front but have been recently translated into high fashion on the global catwalks (see Miu Miu and Pucci).
Leaves, branches, plants, fern prints – nature takes a step back to basics – design inspiration from time immemorial is revisited once more.
We are delighted to see this trend filter through to the bridal market in the form of the most delicate filigree botanical features on dresses and accessories.
In keeping with this trend (fab one for Spring/Summer 2012 brides) we have introduced fabulous hints of foliage in our latest designs.
Layering original vintage components ensure impactful centrepieces (replicating foliate patterns on many antique pieces)….while keeping the design simple and pared back lends the ultimate touch of delicacy and femininity to your perfect bridal accessories!
Many congratulations to Lily and Sam on their recent nuptials – we HEART Lily’s fab 1920s vintage style headdress and dress
