I do love a Mooshki wedding dress, so I was very excited when Lizzie asked me to design and make a bespoke tulle veil to complement her dress for the big day!

Lizzie’s dress is absolutely stunning, with a plethora of lace and applique detailing that really does justice in setting off the 1950’s circle dress look, whilst the tea length keeps everything demure and sophisticated. We were keen to complement all of these elements in Lizzie’s bespoke tulle veil, but at the same time not over do the whole look.

Lizzie tried on a few veils, but in the end we felt a 19″ shoulder length veil looked best with the 1950’s/1960’s style. In order to really make the most of this look, we opted for a stiffer tulle, which would then give more body to the veil; this is essential when making a 1950’s/60’s style veil. We also decided to go for as close to a traditional 300 cm wide veil, which really maximised this.

Having looked through loads of trims, we eventually opted for a beautiful, couture scalloped lace trim, hand embellished with clear sequins for a little, subtle light reflection. Once I had created a unique pattern for Lizzie’s veil, I then cut out the tulle and set about hand sewing the scalloped lace on to the veil. A hand sewn finish really does benefit a bespoke veil, ensuring the neatest and most subtle finish.

With the main part of the veil made up, we chose a couple of small details to add the finishing touches. Firstly, I beaded some cream Swarovski pearls onto the top section of the veil, over the part where the hair comb sits.

Finally, I embroidered a small four leaf clover on to the lace, keeping it intricate and tucked into the folds of the veil to ensure it was subtle, as a nod to Lizzie’s marriage to her fiance from Ireland!

Thank you so much Lizzie for commissioning me; I loved working with you to create such a beautiful look! And most importantly: CONGRATULATIONS!
