Did you always know you’d like to wear a veil on your wedding day?

Absolutely! I’m a true romantic at heart & I feel that a veil creates such a beautiful look that can be timeless. I had always pictured myself with a long veil and so it was an important element to my bridal look.

What attracted you to come to Rebecca Anne Designs for your veil?

I’d come across Rebecca Anne Designs on Instagram & fell in love with the uniqueness of her embroidered veils. I fell head over heels (like seriously) & then Rebecca Anne Designs did a giveaway in collaboration with Flamingo Boulevard Bridal Studio for a bespoke scripted veil, which I obviously jumped at the chance to enter & I was AMAZINGLY lucky to win (I still can’t believe it!!).

Did you know what design you wanted straight away?

I was over the moon that I’d won a scripted veil and I had the idea of having our First Dance song lyrics stitched from the get go so it was so exciting to chat ideas & see my vision come to life!

What were people’s reactions to the veil on the day?

OMG, amazing! I’d kept it a big secret & actually showed my Mum the day before & she cried as soon as she saw it. Everyone absolutely loved it & commented how special it was to have something so meaningful to us as a couple.

What veil design did you choose and how was your experience from first contact to delivery of your veil?

The veil that I won was a bespoke superrrrr long scripted design and I chatted ideas with Jaz (FB bridal studio) and Rebecca, which was such a fun process. I felt like I was the most important person in the world and that they wanted to ensure that everything was perfect. I had the idea of having Mrs Clarke stitched near the front of the veil so that it would fall near my ring finger & the design was just so perfect- I mean it was tricky to try and articulate what I meant but Rebecca seemed to get it straight away and the end result was so much more than I ever could have imagined!

Rebecca kept me updated throughout & my veil arrived in gorgeous packaging. Every moment was just so special and I’m just ever so grateful.
