There is a lady who's name I've been watching closely these past few months.  Her name is Donna Crain.

Based in Surrey, Donna Crain specialises in creating the loveliest vintage inspired wedding veils, headbands, accessories and jewellery, drawing inspiration from iconic legends of screen and stage and her
love of all things vintage.

Donna comes form a long line of designers in her family, that
include tailors, shoe designers and dress designers, and so it seemed a
natural progression for her to follow suit… 

"I love working with vintage lace and jewellery. To bring something to
life again from the past that is so immersed in history already is so
rewarding…"

What drew me to Donna initially was seeing her expertly crafted
headpieces at last season's Designer Wedding Show. And what's really
catching my attention now, are her exquisite vintage inspired veils and
headpieces.  Are these not some of the loveliest and most elegant wedding veils you ever
did see?

All veils sold via Donna Crain are designed and made for Donna Crain by Rebekah McCann-Williams of Visionary Veils.  The veil above there is the Amelia veil – a structured Juliet Cap with a single layer of gathered veil.  The cap structure of the Amelia veil is created in ivory satin and ivory French lace – simply exquisite.

The veil below is the Clarissa veil – a one layer veil with stunning lace headband. It
can be created in any colour of silk with a choice of ivory lace
edging…

And the beautiful Roslyn veil, which can be created in any colour with any edging on the
cap section. An edging can also be added to the sides of the veil. It is
available in standard veil shape or handkerchief design.  Perfection!
