Black Silk Tulle Veil, Dawn 1

Dawn loved The Quirky Wedding Fair which is a really refreshing wedding fair based in Northern Ireland. Visionary Veils exhibit at The Quirky Wedding Fairs and we know that Quirky Weddings want every bride and groom to have the wedding they want no matter what their personal taste might be.
 ” I would like to say thanks to The Quirky Wedding Fair as our wedding was really the way we wanted it! if there is a fair worth visiting then that’s the one.  At Quirky Wedding you are not just  sheep in the cattle market,  that can be the wedding business,  but a Bride looking to stamp her own identity” Dawn

Love My Dress, A Juliet Cap Veil and Raimon Bundo Gown For An Elegant English Country Barn Wedding

Hello there! We’ve another little Saturday treat for you today, because it’s the weekend – and who needs a better excuse than that?  Wedding Photographer Sam and husband Phil’s wedding took place on 12th August, 2013 at Arlington Baptist Chapel in Bibury, followed by a reception at the Stone Barn near Upper Windrush – both venues located in the stunning Cotswolds.

“As a wedding photographer I have been to many, many weddings, and this definitely helped me realise more what I didn’t want rather than what I did want my wedding day to be.

I also had a real yearning for a Juliet cap veil (ever since watching the film Ballet Shoes when the character played by Emilia Fox wore one).  I researched extensively to get the ‘right’ one. I had come across Rebekah at Visionary Veils, and, unbeknown to me, Emma at Love Bridal had found her too and got samples.

“Phil and I met on a Christian dating agency website. We got engaged at the end of April this year and married just over three months later.  We had been talking about getting married for a while, there wasn’t an actual proposal – I had seen a ring I liked in a jewellers in York and Phil suggested I try it on. I knew he had ordered it, but he surprised me with it when I arrived at his house one weekend with flowers, champagne and down on one knee.

We didn’t actually live together before we were married, I was in Lancashire and Phil in Yorkshire. Neither of us were particularly sentimental about where we were married as long as it was in church and as the church I belong to meets in a university lecture theatre we would have had to find a church to be married in anyway.”

Debbie Cap Veil 1


I couldn’t find what I wanted (a 30s cap-style veil) and eventually found Rebekah at Visionary Veils – again in Holywood, Northern Ireland (even though I had searched in London – she does shipping too). She did an amazing job and I loved it. It was unique to me and might just be my favourite part of the outfit. Although, and this is one regret, I styled my hair in a vintage way too and I really think it was overkill. I look back and see someone from that crap sitcom Goodnight Sweetheart. I wish I’d gone softer like I was in the evening…


This was where I went a bit mental and spent a fortune. But I figured it’s my own money and it was separate from our budget so I could really go for it. It’s called Kristene from Claire Pettibone. I loved the vintage lace on it and it suited my figure in a subtle way. I nearly cried when I first started looking and every bridal shop took one look at my bust and tried to get me into a strapless, Jordan-esque gown. ‘Make the most of your assets, dear’. Arghhhhh!!!!
