Crowning glory

We love to see the different ways brides decide to style their hair. A beautifully crafted braid or tousled, loose curls can elevate the bride’s beauty and sophistication. But what to dress this gorgeous ‘do with? We’ve collected some of our favourite hair adornments to inspire your choices.

Floral crown

There is nothing so pretty as a bold, bright floral crown. Crafted with seasonal flowers and worn over loosely curled hair, this crown can be the perfect accompaniment to a spring or summer wedding. It celebrates the beautiful colours that are springing up in nature and complements the chosen wedding colour palette and florals. With such a bold headpiece, the bridal bouquet can be simple and fresh, containing a couple of matching flowers and would work perfectly with a simple sheath dress.

Classic tiara

If you’re opting for a more traditional look – beautiful veil and full skirted dress, you may want to look at a classic tiara. And who better to provide it than Swarovski? You will sparkle with radiant beauty as you drift down the aisle! Tiaras work really well sitting atop an impressively styled up-do and provide a perfect pairing with a veil. If you’ve got crystals or beading stitched into your dress, the sparkles will compliment them beautifully. You’ve also got a huge range to choose from – large, small, crystal, pearl – you’ll be spoilt for choice!

Fresh as a daisy!

If a floral crown seems one step too far, why not select a few matching flowers from your florals and decorate a simple braid or chignon with them? This is a lovely way to match your bridesmaids’ hair as well, and gives a fabulous pop of colour. Daisies, gypsophila or little rosebuds give a lovely fresh look and feel to set off a cute hair style.

Intricate detail

Hair vines are simply adorable. Tiny bursts of detail amongst a pretty hair design – you can’t go wrong with this choice. Hermione Harbutt’s creations are simply beautiful as they wind through the hair, adding sparkle and interest. If you don’t want a veil, hair vines create a sweet alternative as people will be spending quite a bit of time looking at the back of your head! A perfect match for a dress with simple decoration, or to pick out the lace or crystal detail within its design.

Vintage

Everyone loves a classic, and a vintage style hair adornment is such a lovely accessory. You’ll need to go veil-less for this one, which would sit elegantly alongside a vintage inspired dress or match a vintage theme perfectly. Worn over hair either up or down, or even half up-half down, the added glamour will be sure to attract some compliments. We love this look – it really adds the perfect finishing touches to a vintage dress and completes the theme brilliantly.

Statement

We love a statement headpiece. A luxury wedding definitely calls for a spectacular piece of headwear. We couldn’t resist featuring a few of our favourite showstoppers. Be brave and really go for it – this is your one special day! There are some exquisite hand crafted masterpieces that would be perfect to add some detail to a simple dress or complement a dramatic gown. And with perfectly styled hair to match, your look will be simply stunning.
