We’re excited to welcome Hairlooms Headpieces to the blog! Hairlooms Headpieces make gorgeous one of a kind bridal headpieces using refashioned vintage jewellery.
Proprietor Kristen says:
“Hairlooms Headpieces are not just made using vintage materials they are also vintage in style, using heaps of lace, pearls and feathers to evoke bygone eras and provide the perfect finishing touch to your wedding outfit.
That gorgeous bridal side tiara or birdcage veil headpiece might be topped off with a refashioned vintage brooch or pair of art deco dress clips, those sparkly hair pins may have had a past life on the earlobes of a wartime bride or ‘50s housewife.
All Hairlooms Headpieces are one of a kind, so you’ll never see your special piece on anyone else. “
They recently exhibited at Edinburgh’s Vintage Wedding Fair where their new bespoke service was born, following several requests for custom pieces. As part of that service, Kristen will talk you through a design consultation, source the materials for your piece, including any vintage finds to be incorporated, and make sure you receive that special headpiece you’ve been picturing as you daydream about the big day.
