This latest feature is one I've been meaning to write about and share with you for sometime now, ever since I discovered that the Bride in this stunning Hampton Court Palace real wedding feature was wearing one of the designers beautiful head piece designs.

I've seen a few Brides in this past year of blogging opt for a more whimsical 'midsummer nights dream' style in their wedding day look, and I fall for it every time.  I just love to see a Bride wearing a band of flowers in her hair – it makes such a pretty alternative to something more sparkly and looks fantastic with a loose up do and tousled hair.  If you are thinking about recreating something of this kind of look on your own wedding day, then be sure to look up Whichgoose – a fabulous store on the Etsy website who sell the most charming and delightful headpieces, crafted from vintage elements and designed to look like real flowers and vines in your hair.

Whichgoose is the creation of one Emily Zych, who resides in Maryland USA, but who sells her pretty creations to buyers all over the world, via the amazing her Etsy store… 

"I am a 28-year-old from Maryland, USA who recently quit my day job at a newspaper to pursue hair accessory design full-time.  I started off studying English in school and always played around with art as a hobby. I am self-taught and constantly learning and changing my techniques. I find most inspiration from nature and natural findings, plus vintage styles and sensibilities.

I love working with brides and creating a truly unique look for their wedding day.  Brides should be allowed to be transformed and made anew into something straight out of their dreams…"
