When Angela first contacted me last November to order a bespoke headpiece for her June 2016 wedding in Monaco, I was so excited! Her champagne lace dress with a nod to 1920’s Art Deco glamour combined with the location for her wedding was just up my street. Having spent many a Summer holiday in the South of France myself, including time spent in Monaco, it conjured up all sorts of inspiration.

The basis of Angela’s head piece was designed around the idea of a tulle headband. We selected two soft tulles, one in ivory and one in more of a champagne shade. By double layering these, we managed to achieve an excellent match to her dress colour.

Angela's couture tulle and lace head band complimented her 1920's Art Deco style dress beautifully, picking up the beading on the band to the waist line of her dress.

The tulle head band was hand stitched using invisible, couture techniques and finished off neatly with satin binding and poppers to the back.

Angela's tulle head band featured a lace section to the front, hand beaded using couture techniques in Angela's choice of Swarovski pearls and crystals.

Angela opted for a beaded lace piece to the front of the tulle band, which picked up the beading work to the waist line of her dress. I hand beaded a selection of Swarovski pearls, claw set crystals and smaller intricate jewels on to the lace to compliment the detail on Angela’s dress.

Angela's look was infused with vintage glamour, in keeping with the stunning location and history of Monaco - Grace Kelly would be proud!

I backed the lace with wire, loops and poppers so that it could be removed from the tulle head band and worn separately. This allowed Angela to be able to wear the lace as a separate headpiece by pinning it into her hair using the loops, should she wish to take of the tulle head band later in the day.

Huge congratulations to Angela and her husband Paul! Thank you so much for commissioning me – it was so much fun working with you to create such a beautiful piece for such a truly elegant and beautiful bride.
