Demi Halo Lace Bridal Head Piece Boho Wedding
Our new Demi Halo design is now available handmade bespoke to order in your choice of style, size and combination of lace and hair vine detailing!
Perfect for boho or vintage brides, or those just wanting a touch of something a little different to add to their bridal look. This is such a pretty head piece design!
For our sample design, I chose to layer different types of guipure lace in ivory, creating a slight crescent shape that would frame the back of the head. Last Saturday I had the pleasure of meeting Sarah Meikle at the filming of The Bride – Video Blog with Duncan Holmes Photography. As part of the filming, we featured the demi halo, which Sarah kindly modeled for me. Doesn’t it look so very pretty on Sarah! As a side note, Sarah isn’t just a talented actress, she also works as a Disney Princess at parties – what an amazing job!
Hair vine sections sweep around the side of the head. For the hair vines, I incorporated real, semi-precious Mother of Pearl beads alongside Swarovski crystal round and bicone beads in both clear and Aurora Borealis, and vintage silver lined square crystal beads. A flurry of oval shaped pearl beads run throughout the entire piece, adding both continuity and contrast simultaneously.
Dotted througout the lace a tiny flat backed clear Swarovski crystals, that add just enough light reflection, but not so much that it is over powering or ‘blingy’.
Although I chose to go for lace as the main focus on our sample demi halo piece, the beauty of ordering bespoke from Mairi Brunning Millinery is that I can adapt the design to your preferences. This style would look just as great with the hair vine sections being the main focus with either just a little, or even no lace at all. I would also love to see this design made up with a variety of different styles (and shades!) of lace, bead choice and dimensions. It could even be made as a full halo headpiece, with the vine work or thinner lace coming all the way around to the front of the head, perhaps sitting just above the hair line. I am feeling very inspired by this design and hope to make one or two more samples or commissions using this sample halo as the basis for many more beautiful head pieces!
