Wedding Veils

Veils are a beautiful tradition that had its origins in Greek and Roman times.  They were used  as a way of warding off evil spirits. Since that day they have been incorporated in many cultures and  remain a classic and timeless element of the bridal look.  While styles may vary in popularity the veil is a bridal accessory that is here to stay.

The popularity of the veil has increased with Celebrities such as Kate Middleton and Kate Moss who chose stunning veils to complement their bridal look.  With so many styles from traditional to bohemian it is easy for a bride to be become completely bamboozled by what is on offer.  

Traditionally veils come in the following lengths;

  • 36” Shoulder length Veil
  • 54” Waist or elbow length Veil
  • 72” Hip or Fingertip length Veil
  • 108” Floor length Veil
  • 126” Train or Chapel length Veil
  • 144” Long Train or Cathedral length Veil

There are also numerous different styles to choose from such as single tier, two tier, blusher, fly away.  It is the choice of fabrics used in a veil that make them truly unique and luxurious.
Many brides choose their wedding dress before the veil or headpiece.  As such it can be hard to find the right veil to compliment your final look. With a bespoke veil this is no longer an issue.  You can truly put your own touch to your bridal look and your veil can be made with any style or length.  There are no limitations to standard lengths or styles.
