Wearing a veil on your wedding day and not sure on your hairstyle? We have you covered. There are so many hairstyles, accessories and veils to choose from so let us narrow down your choice with these gorgeous veil and wedding hairstyle combinations.
For medium to short hair you could style with side curls intertwining through to the back, frame it with a veil placed mid-low in the back of your hairstyle and accessorise it with a headband or vine like our Anna vine (shown below). If you decide you don't want a veil to the back and want to wear your hair down with loose curls you can still out for a birdcage veil, like shown below with our Eliza veil .
If you like a voluminous down style, you could go for a birdcage that has the added element of an embellished band attached, this is so easy to put on and stays in place. See our Abigails Birdcage/headband (shown below) in more detail. If you want a relaxed up-style or messy chignon and would rather embellish your veil, then a piece like the Lorraine comb (shown below) could be for you, it attaches and detaches from the veil comb, a versatile light applique piece. See more of these kind of applique pieces here.
Real bride (below) Nimah's dramatic waves are to die for, this style is suitable for long or short hair, placing your veil in the middle of your style or high on the head. See our Ceara veil if this style is for you. Nimah wore our Bella earrings on her wedding day.
Taking inspiration from Meghan Markle, the humble tendrils are back and bigger than ever. Two long face-framing pieces, curled away from the face is all you need to turn a basic hairstyle into a contemporary look. Style these tendrils up with a Sparkly style drop earring. Real bride Natasha (above) chose our Jodie earrings, see them here. Natasha wore her Veil under her hairstyle, this is quite a romantic look and does not mess your hairstyle if you decide to take it out.
If you have a fringe you can roll and volumise it, style it with a low chignon and a catherdral tulle veil like our Zinnia veil shown above. Real bride Vicky opted for side plait weaved into a styled up-style and double elbow veil like our Camden veil. Vicky wore our Jodie earrings.
Lots of hairstyle and veil combinations to choose from. See our full Veil Collection.
Wedding hair vines are very on trend this year, but if you are asking yourself “What’s a wedding hair vine?”, let us explain. Wedding hair vines are long, flexible head pieces made on thin twisted wire that can be shaped to any design required to suit your hairstyle. Wedding hair vines generally don’t have any combs attached to them and can easily be pinned into your hair wherever needed. This gives them the flexibility to be worn with many different hairstyles.
So, how should you wear your wedding hair vine...
First, decide on how you will be wearing your hair; will you be wearing your hair down, in a long loose braid? Hair vines also look fantastic in half up half down hairstyles. Simply secure into the section of your hair that is pinned up, and then gentle curve down through your loose waves. If you are wearing your hair in a loose plait, the hair vine can simply be plaited into your hair as it is done.
As we mentioned hair vines are a very big trend for this year and here are our top selling wedding hair vines for 2020 so far...

You’ll be wearing your statement earrings all say so not only do they need to be beautiful they need to be practical too. If you don’t often wear long drop earrings it might be a good idea to wear your earrings at home behind closed doors for a few days to be sure you get on with them.
Consider any other accessories you'll be wearing or the details of your wedding dress when choosing your earrings. If your dress has embellishments, you might like to opt for earrings that coordinate with them.
Don’t forget that your whole outfit should be balanced, if you want to wear a glamorous pair of statement earrings, don’t rush to wear lots of other accessories, alternatively if you opt for subtle wedding earrings you can then choose to wear lots of other pieces too, our Alisha, Freshwater Pearl Silver Earrings are perfect for this.
Pearls are very often a popular wedding day gift for a bride, but why are pearls associated with weddings, you may be thinking!
Thanks to their fabulous shimmering iridescence, these organic little gems have always been highly prized throughout history, in fact, Cleopatra is said to have dissolved a pearl in a glass of wine before drinking it, simply to show Marc Antony that she could consume the wealth of an entire country in just one meal, and the ancient Greeks associated the pearl with love, marriage, and marital harmony. During the crusades knights wore pearls on the battlefield, believing they held magic powers that would protect them from harm. In the 1500s pearls were so highly regarded that countries across Europe passed laws forbidding anyone apart from nobility to wear them. And even to this day, they are still a popular choice for royalty, especially at weddings. Queen Elizabeth II wore them at her wedding and over in the USA, Jacqueline Bouvier wore a strand the day she became Mrs Kennedy, which was almost royalty.
