I do love hearing from new suppliers who've not popped up on my radar, especially when they create designs as beautiful as the ones you see on this page.
I've a real thing for wedding veils at the moment, actually, I always have had, but especially those gorgeous vintage style Juliet Cap Veils that are so in vogue right now, and those pretty boho style bands that sit across the forehead. Veils are such a beautifully romantic addition to your wedding day wardrobe. I was so not a veil girl until I became engaged and found myself on a mission for the perfect wedding day outfit.
Edinburgh based designer Susie McKenzie established the LoveBySusie brand in February 2007. With a line of wedding dresses, accessories, lingerie and corsets already under her belt, 2012 sees the launch of a brand new addition to the LoveBySusie collection of vintage inspired bridal head wear, including silk tulle veils, Juliet cap styles and hand beaded lace hairbands…
“I believe wedding veils are a quintessential element of the wedding ensemble. There’s nothing quite like a whisper of silk tulle to evoke a breathtaking air of romance. Veils are also so on trend at the moment with inspiration from the likes of 2011 brides Kate Middleton, Lily Allen and Kate Moss who all chose to wear cathedral length silk tulle veils with exquisite lace embellishments but with entirely different end looks…"

Every aspect of a LovebySusie bride’s wedding day ensemble is a careful consideration from her wedding veil to the hidden garter under her gown.
These beautiful LoveBySusie designs fit perfectly into the style for all things vintage, a trend that from Susie's perspective, shows no signs of abating, especially when it comes to bridal wear.
“I use some beautiful vintage lace pieces for limited edition designs, but I have also taken traditional leavers lace still produced in Nottingham today, which uses designs and lace making techniques that go as far back as the 18th Century and have combined the lace with the highest quality silk tulles and delicate hand beading to produce timeless, elegant Wedding veils and hair accessories that are truly unique".
