When it comes to accessorising, we’re big believers in less is more. Coco Chanel knew exactly what she was talking about when she said “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”
Bridal accessories should be stylish, elegant and subtle; simple enough not to overpower your dress but with a WOW factor to bring the final flourish to the most important look you’ll ever put together. Think a striking hairpiece, a dazzling veil or a beautiful shawl and you’ll be Coco worthy in no time.
We fell in love with this beautiful bridal knitwear range from Rembo Styling. Let’s be honest girls – even July brides won’t be guaranteed a warm day in Scotland and these beautiful shawls and cardigans are the perfect option for covering up on cooler days or adding a touch of boho-chic to your Highland wedding.
This is the perfect shawl for warding off the evening chill in a barn or Scottish historic castle venue. The neutral tone makes it easy to wear again and we can just see it being thrown on over your tshirt at a summer BBQ with friends. We also really love the idea of starting a family tradition and using it to bring a baby home from hospital or as a christening gown cover up.
The rolled-up sleeves on this gorgeous cardi is a perfect look for the relaxed boho bride. Picture it over a simple, ivory dress standing at the side of a Loch or on top of a mountain and then again with jeans and a sparkly top for dinner and cocktails. Who says you’ll never wear it again?
We adore this jumper. Warm and relaxed, with the low back keeping the things feminine and framing any dress detail beneath. Wear it with jeans or even thrown over a bikini for breezy days down at the beach. This is ideal for the boho chic bride marrying abroad in the alps or on a remote Scottish island.
Nottingham Veil by Joyce Jackson
Our favourite veil for summer 2017, this is a delicate, full lace veil in ivory with gold thread and beautiful beading. For brides who’ve opted for soft classic fabrics such as crepe, silk or chiffon with simple lines and elegant tailoring, this lace beauty will add all the bridal drama you need.
Miranda Templeton Hair Vines
Hair vines are hugely popular thanks to their versatility. The wire base allows your hair stylist to bend and manipulate the vine to compliment your hair style and texture. Looks beautiful when weaved in and out of a chunky plait or to frame a messy bun.
