Our real bride Anna wearing our two tier silk style eyelash lace veil!

We just received these beautiful pictures of real bride Anna and were very excited to share them with you. Anna wore our Misa veil which is a two tier silk style veil edged with eyelash lace. This was styled with the Avani leaf vine, Addie earrings and a simple but very elegant dress with a beautiful low back.

"I'm happy to say that I was very much a Britten bride! Not only was my veil one of yours, but my headpiece and my earrings were all from you...

I have to say that every single thing that my family and I purchased from Britten weddings was JUST beautiful. I adored that everything was handmade and came from your team in Bradford-on-avon. These pieces have now been boxed away and kept so that my children and my grandchildren will have the option to enjoy them if they wish. "

Such lovely words thanks so much Anna and we're so thrilled you loved your pieces.

Beautiful bride Hannah looks stunning in her Sassi Holford dress with removable lace topper. Hannah found her dress at The Bridal Collection Harrogate

“I wanted something quite simple and this was one of the first I tried on. I loved that I could add the shrug in the day and remove it in the night for two different looks.”

Hannah finished off her look with our delicate barely there veil Skylar and sparkling pale gold Jimmy Choo shoes.

All about Veil Fabrics

Veil fabrics materials

Our veil collection has grown considerably since we started all those years ago and with it has the amount of different kinds of fabrics we use. We are always trying to fill gaps in the veil market and finding and creating new styles is just so much fun!

We thought it would be a good idea to give a breakdown of all of our fabrics so you can find the right one for you.

  • Our 'traditional tulle' which has a little body and volume and gives you that very traditional veil look. This is the original veil fabric! Our's is made in Somerset and made from a very high quality Nylon. The best thing about this tulle is it's strength, even though it is exceptionally fine it can support a lot of lace and detail without loosing it's lightness. 
  • Our 'silk style tulle' which drapes and falls like silk without the hefty price tag. Silk style tulle is very soft and falls straight down with no volume at all, as it is so delicate it does have a tendency to catch so if your dress is heavily embellished our traditional or illusion tulle maybe a better option. This tulle works best with slim fitting dresses. Like our traditional tulle this is also made in Somerset and is made from a polyester thread. This tulle is also known as an English net.
  • Our 'pure soft silk tulle' which is one of the most luxurious of all our tulles, it drapes and handles beautifully. Like silk style tulle it has a tendency to catch on embellishments and also works best with slim fitting dresses. This tulle is made in France - a country famous for luxurious fabrics.
  • Our 'pure crisp silk tulle' which is also pure silk but has a little more body and structure than our pure soft silk. This tulle will work with most dresses and laces and falls beautifully. It is similar in feeling to our traditional tulle.
  • Our 'polka dot tulle' which is covered in tiny dots, it's also know as swiss dot tulle. It adds a little more texture and interest to the veil. Our polka dot tulle is soft and falls more like our silk style tulle than our traditional tulle. 
  • Our illusion tulle which is a soft tulle that falls between our traditional and silk style in terms of body and structure. The 'holes' in the fabric are tiny and as such this works beautifully if you have a very embellished dress as it won't catch. It is very similar to Italian tulle.
  • Our silk organza which has more body than the other fabrics and is less sheer. This is also made of a pure silk thread. Perfect for a modern look!
  • Our full lace veils which are a beautiful alternative to tulle and give you a bit more coverage.
  • Our russian net veils which are normally either birdcage or bandeau.

Real bride Tonya in her Jenny Packham gown and eyelash lace silk style veil Mia!

The veil that Tonya wore in these images (a combination of eyelash French lace and silk style tulle) is one of our absolute favourites and it compliments her Jenny Packham dress perfectly

"My veil was from Britten. I wasn’t sure about a veil but I thought when would I ever wear one again! The one I chose had a delicate lace edge and complemented my dress perfectly."

These images are taken by John Barwood Photography and you can see many more on the fabulous Rock My Wedding.

What is a Bridal Cape?

tulle wedding cape

Capes are a fabulous alternative to a veil as they are slightly more unusual in the bridal world. They can provide a little bit of cover for modesty in church weddings and can help transform your outfit from day to night.

If you are after an alternative to a veil then a full tulle cape like our Imogen is the best option. This cape comes in fingertip, ballet, floor, church and cathedral and with a high or low neckline so you can choose which best compliments your dress. To provide some cover in a church you could go for a lace wrap like Charis which can also be worn for your getting ready shots as an alternative to a dressing gown. To instantly turn your wedding dress into an evening gown try one of our hand beaded capelets like Edwina or Jolie.

Stunning bride Emma wears Rime Arodaky separates and our Luisa lace edge veil

We spotted this wedding on Love My Dress and were desperate to share it with you.

lace wedding veil

We love bridal separates and they are a great alternative to a more traditional dress. Emma wore the ‘Caplan’ top and ‘Camila’ skirt, both by Rime Arodaky from The Mews Bridal, Notting Hill. She styled this with our Luisa wedding veil which really compliments the lace. Emma wore the veil high on her head so that the lace framed her face and fell over her shoulders.

“Whilst I wanted something bridal, I also didn’t want to feel too serious or traditional. I really struggled to find anything I liked, whilst I tried on some beautiful dresses they all felt like they belonged to someone else. I loved the idea of wearing separates and a friend recommended I try The Mews. The stylist there was wonderful, she suggested the combination herself as it wasn’t a matching set, I loved that it felt modern and true to my own style.”

Thank you to Luis Holden photography for the stunning pics. See the full post on Love My Dress.

Good work Emma! You only get to wear a veil once so wear it for as long you can!
