Real Bride Tina in our Catherine lace veil, a handmade French lace which compliments so many dresses. A very elegant and stylish veil.

Thank you so so much, for all the help you gave me with my veil; for being so patient and understanding with all my questions in figuring out what was best - I really couldn't have asked for more and am so grateful to you for helping make sense of all my ramblings - and of course, doing such an incredible job.

 I just wanted to email you to say thank you for my veil. I absolutely loved it. I have attached a picture of our wedding day so you can see the veil. Thank you again. Kind Regards Charlotte 

I got married in June wearing one of your beautiful veils and I wanted to share some pictures with you. It was a floor length champagne veil with Chloe lace trim which went perfectly with my Claire Pettibone dress, both were purchased from the lovely Blackburn Bridal. Kind Regards, Frances

Dear Helen, Just wanted to say a very late thank you for my beautiful veil - the photographer commented on how gorgeous it was! I really appreciated the effort you went to in order to send me a veil quickly, - you made it so hassle free and it really worked well with my dress. With best wishes, Charlotte

Dear Helen, I just thought I would write to thank you for all that you did to make my veil perfect on my wedding day. The (mostly) silk tulle was fabulous and looked so special.
All the best, Sarah

Dear Helen and your marvellous team! I felt amazing in the beautiful Organza Ribbon Edged veil you made for me with such care and attention to detail. It really complemented my Suzanne Neville dress & jacket and I received such wonderful compliments on my Wedding Day!! Many thanks Laura

I just want to say how easy Helen made everything for me from the moment I contacted her with my enquiry to receiving my veil. I saw lots of different laces etc on the website and I had samples provided to me and was able to choose remotely. Helen was able to advise on what would best with the sytle I was looking for as I wanted something quite specific in a style like Kate Middleton's so just one piece and no gathering. And the result was stunning. Thank you so much, Merlyn.

Helen, I've just received the veil, one word WOW! I absolutely love it, it's so beautiful, the detail on the comb, well I've never seen anything like it, it's a million times better then any I've seen in the shop and exactly what I wanted, I couldn't be happier. Thank you so much, I'm so glad I found you! Lisa . Photograph of Lisa getting married in Las Vegas wearing a bespoke ivory diamond tulle veil.

Hi Helen, I wanted to email and thank you for creating my gorgeous veil, so many people commented on how beautiful it was and I just adored it! I am so sad I will not be able to wear it again J!! 

Hi Helen, I just wanted to write and say thank you for my lovely veil. It looked and felt so wonderful on the day. I only decided on the morning of the wedding to wear the blusher over my face, but I am so pleased I did, it looked great. I will certainly recommend you if anyone needs a veil (unless they want to borrow mine!). With best wishes, Joanna

Thanks for all your help over the last few years and for helping to turn me into a bride at last!! I got masses of compliments on the veil and dress, so thank you from the bottom of my heart. Love, Emily xx
