Just a very quick post today dedicated entirely to my latest find, what is quite simply the cleverest Wedding Blog Site ever! (no exaggeration)
Knot News is genius in its simplicity – headlining the latest posts from Wedding Blogs around the world, it is an almost endless source of inspiration.
One of the best things about being the author of Chic Vintage Brides is that it gives me the excuse to spend hours (upon hours, upon hours…) browsing gorgeous bridal gowns, from the very latest collections of the most fabulously talented designers – like Mariana Hardwick!
After my post regarding the flawlessly chic, vintage wedding of Kate Moss and her absolutely stunning veil, I had a mini Juliet cap veil infatuation!
As a bride I chose not to have a veil – now I wonder why?! (although I still adore my deco inspired asymmetric hairband! ) The incredible Vera Wang says “The wedding veil is at once sacred and seductive“ and I couldn’t agree more – especially some of the glorious veils I came across, they would simply be the crowning accessory for any vintage inspired bride!
Today, the Juliet Cap Veil is associated with the 1920’s and 30’s and images of Brides with huge oversized bouquets, wearing gorgeous silk bias cut wedding dresses but it was originally fashioned in the 16th Century! The name actually stems from that most romantic Shakespeare play ‘Romeo and Juliet’ – original drawings of Juliet depicted her wearing a cap that fit neatly to the top of her head.
I love, love, love vintage headwear – if I could style myself vintage every day, I would have a different piece of headwear for every day of the year! And in my constant search for vintage headwear I always return to one exquisite brand in particular – Twigs & Honey, for their fabulously romantic and whimsical designs……
It’s typical that whilst planning my wedding blog and getting it up and running there have been no end of gorgeous celebrity (and royal!) weddings. The most recent and, in my opinion most vintage wow, was Kate Moss’s beautiful bohemian wedding to Jamie Hince, in a quiet village in the English Cotswalds.
Whilst I have not always been the biggest fan of Kate Moss’s style, on her wedding day I can do nothing but admit that her style was flawless vintage chic and I absolutely adored it
From the stunning sheer, bias cut, art deco inspired, John Galliano gown – which has the most incredible peacock feather embellishment of gold beading…..
To the exquisite matching Juliet cap veil…..
