The wedding day veil is a custom rich in history and tradition, harking back to Medieval times. In days of yore, the Anglo Saxons draped both bride and groom with a length of fabric during the ceremony, while later, the bride alone received the protection of this ‘care cloth,’ designed to keep harmful spirits at bay. The head cover next evolved into a canopy and finally the traditional veil, which continues to deliver Olde World elegance to the contemporary bride.

Bridal veils can be exquisitely ornamented, detailed with opulent laces and light- catching crystals, or shine with the simplicity imparted by a simple cut edge veil. Whether you choose a demure birdcage blusher or lush cathedral train, your bridal trousseau should reflect your unique style and individual beauty.
