Let me start of by saying I absolutely love embroidery and am also very much in love with laces. Why not combine the two? It has been a trend I have been working on for a while, and a lot of my new spring 2017 veils are created with this in mind. Delicate French Chantilly laces are actually very suitable to be combined with a more busy embroidered gown. The softness of the lace and tulle brings out all of the delicate detail whithout overwhelming the bride in fabric or patterns.
This year I have been very lucky to have been part of photographers Donny Zavala workshop in Hawaii. As you can see in the stunning images below the model was wearing a incredible Claire Pettibone embroidered gown, that stylist of the shoot Utterly Engaged combined so perfectly with the "Style 513" Chantilly lace veil.
Recently I created two bespoke veil design in this particular style. One of the designs was a mantilla style veil designs, and the other a juliet cap veil. The trick is to find and combine the right lace and embroidery together. These two veils really bring out the the floral style of the gowns they will be combined with, without overwhelming them. This is why we chose to only combine the embroidery and lace at the top of the veils, and keep the rest of the veil more plain. The beautiful thing about a veil design like this is that they are very versatile, and will also look amazing combined with a very modern minimalist bridal look as well.

Featured in this shoot was the "Style 513" French Chantilly Lace Blusher veil.
