Birdcage Veils, Not Just for the Bride.

Coloured birdcage veils are so glamorous, they make beautiful occasion wear. You don’t have to be a bride to enjoy a little bit of vintage elegance. With a wide choice of fascinators you can give the headdress a modern edge if you prefer.

At Pretty Perfect we hand make birdcage veils to order here in the UK. In addition to our bridal birdcage veils we make fascinators and veils in colour. Our designs have the option to remove the veiling and wear the fascinator alone.

Feature Bride Leanne

Leanne jetted off to Australia in October for a relaxed beach wedding. We created a beautiful forehead chain bridal headdress for her in champagne colours to compliment her Ian Stewart dress. The sides of the bridal head piece featured lace from the dress and lace flowers with clusters of crystals and pearls. The forehead chain was made from a mix of tine beads and crystals. To finish the look we wrapped bangles with lace cut from the wedding dress. I love this boho bridal look!

Exclusive Children’s Hair Accessories

Bespoke Flower Girl HeadbandBespoke Bridesmaids Headdress

Pretty Perfect have been commissioned to create some beautiful bespoke hair accessories for little girls and bridesmaids, so I  thought I would share a few pictures of some past pieces and some new children’s hair accessories for the 2012 collection.

When designing for children we apply the same philosophy as we do for our bridal head wear; beautiful design, careful construction, high quality materials and if you are commissioning a piece, the opportunity to have a unique and personal piece that fits your look. The right accessories can really make an outfit for little girls as well as grown up little girls – we never really want to stop dressing up!

Alison’s Bespoke Bridal Headband with Birdcage Veil

Birdcage Veil Flower Bridal Band

Birdcage Veil with Flower FascinatorVintage Style Bridal Headdress

Alison commissioned her bridal headdress in February 2011. She had chosen the gorgeous tea length wedding dress which set the scene for her vintage look. Alison wanted a statement flower fascinator and short veil to work with the elegance of her dress. In our initial consultation she tried the ‘Sarah-Jane’ fascinator and the ‘Anya’ band and we designed her piece by selecting elements of both pieces, with the addition of the birdcage veil. I am so pleased to share these pictures of a really lovely client looking fabulous in her Pretty Perfect bridal headdress.

Bespoke Bridal Headdress Birdcage Veil

Lisa bridal make-up & Bespoke headdress with veil

dress detail

Lisa chose a beautiful wedding gown in a pale gold tone, with lots of front detail. Finding a readymade bridal headdress was proving a little tricky so Lisa got in touch with as.  We created a motif for her headdress by recreating the detail  from the dress. She wore the head band with a detachable 6 inch birdcage veil, allowing her to alter the look throughout the day.
