Iconic brides and their wedding veils

When a bride comes into our studio, we tell them that we can make any style of veil they like.  Sometimes the sheer choice can be overwhelming so if you're in need of some wedding veil inspiration, fret not. We've assembled some photos of our favourite iconic brides showcasing some gorgeous options to spark some ideas. These veils have stood the test of time and are still as desirable now as when these romantic weddings took place.

Featured in the Irish Wedding Journal

July has been a really busy month for Wilde by Design, not only are we in full wedding season mode but we were lucky enough to be involved in an Inspirational Photo Shoot for the Autumn edition of Irish Wedding Journal.

We were working with a new bridal photographer Ryan Devereux who produced some fabulous images, make up  - Niamh Connolly who is amazing.  To be honest we don't do any shoots without her.  The make up is always flawless and looks natural. This sounds easy but is no mean feat!   Finally Nikki Murphy was the creator of our elegant hairstyles.

Our team wanted to shoot an elegant vintage wedding with a twist so we decided to use a masquerade theme and accidentally happened upon a designer living in Wexford Gillian Wattley who makes masks and unbelievable head pieces.  With everything in place we just needed the perfect venue and to be honest you can't get more idyllic than Gloster House  in Offaly.

Here is a little sneak peak of some of the images featured.  Enjoy!



A beautiful tribute from a client

Wedding Veil handmade by Wilde by Design

We recently received a beautiful tribute from Wilde by Design client Joan Shields. We think it captures a lot of the Wilde by Design approach when it comes to crafting a wedding veil, so we thought we'd share it with you.

"I feel very fortunate to have recently celebrated my dream wedding in Sicily and to have Jill Wilde custom design a stunning wedding veil for me. After a lot of searching I had found my perfect dress designed by Temperley. Working with Jill meant I was able to crown it with a veil that did it justice and more!

"Jill was great to work with – she really listened to my ideas of what I wanted and provided suggestions also of what she thought would suit my face and the dress style. Because it was custom designed she was able to design a veil that matched the fabric and picked up on details such as the diamante on the dress. Fabric is important to me and my dress was in silk. Jill took the trouble to create me a real silk veil – a very delicate fabric to work with – which was embellished with the most beautiful hand stitched lace with subtle diamante detail. The detail on the train was also absolutely gorgeous – I felt (and was told I looked!) like a queen wearing it.

"I love the fact that my veil was unique to me rather than a mass produced nylon affair and it will make a lovely heirloom. I would really recommend Jill’s service to brides to be – it is a really lovely experience to create something unique in consultation with someone so talented at such a special time."
