Our simple vintage inspired bird cage veil 'Vayl' (using the Cornish name) is perfect for brides who don't want to go down the traditional veil route. Its' versatility really means that brides can really put their own stamp on the look, like Toni here who styled it with a leather jacket. It goes perfectly with her relaxed chignon and doesn't take away from the lovely lace detail on her Justin Alexander dress.
We make each one on a couture hair band in your hair colour, which sit oh so comfortably (without that annoying pinch behind the ears), making them wearable all day, just like Toni did. You can also team them with another hair accessory like one of our beaded combs and choose a bespoke colour for the veil.
''I had previously tried on a long veil with my dress and it looked very nice but it just wasn't me.
There wasn't an edge to it. As I was explaining to Elaine (of Elaine Rawlings Bridal Boutique) I wanted something different she past on your details and I browsed your website...When I saw the simplicity and beauty of the birdcage veil I knew there wouldn't be anything else that would fit in with my style. It suited my elegant and vintage dress perfectly.
I was never nervous about getting married, saying my vows or doing my speech. Just extremely happy and full of love.''
Toni and Matt's gorgious wedding cought the eye of WED magazine and was featured in their June 2019 Cornwall edition.
