Till Death Do Us Part

Gothic and alternative weddings are currently a rising trend among young engaged couples and if you’re looking to get wed in the Autumn or Winter months, the inky blacks, rich purples, scarlet reds and burnt oranges can look tantalisingly dramatic against a backdrop of old brickwork or an old folly, barn or castle setting.

Burnt oranges can look tantalisingly dramatic against a backdrop of old brickwork or an old folly.

Originally veils had a more symbolic meaning, thought to protect the bride from evil spirits. Veils showed the purity of the bride and were designed to hide the bride’s face from the groom until the moment of when they were joined in matrimony.

Weddings are laced with tradition and symbolism. One question you may be deliberating about is whether or not to opt for a wedding veil. This beautiful wedding accessory is rooted in history and goes back centuries and the tradition is said to have originated from the ancient Greeks.

These days, they are a wonderful modern accessory to capture the personality and taste of the bride to be wed. So depending on your style; gothic, steampunk, vintage, romantic, whimsical, you can really go to town when it comes to choosing a veil and having it hand decorated by Star & Leaf to suit your needs and tastes.
