Ooh do I have something special for you today! Something seriously swoon-worthy; dark, with an air of mystery and chock full of romance. Ladies, the gorgeous goodies in Mignonne Handmade‘s latest collection of veils and bridal headpieces is guaranteed to have get your heart racing!…..
I have long been an admirer of Mignonne Handmade‘s, not only for the beautifully bohemian and charming vintage inspired wedding hair accessories the lovely Jennifer (owner of the boutique) creates but also for the stylish shoots she pulls together that capture the essence of her collections so perfectly. Never has this been more the case than with her latest offering. This collection of delicate floral hair vines, silk flower combs, majestic ornate crowns and ethereal veils is vintage inspired, utterly timeless and just perfect for today’s modern-vintage loving bride. Each and every piece is handmade with love and care in the Mignonne Handmade studio using old school techniques and vintage millinery tools, but with a modern eye; which all together creates beautifully unique, heirloom pieces you will adore for a life time.
Isn’t this silk flower comb lovely? And just wait until you hear how Jennifer creates these beautiful blooms ”I start the process with pure white silk that is then cut into petals that are dyed to a underlying hue, all colors hand mixed by me, then I paint each one in a watercolor style adding depth and a realism to the petals making each one a perfectly unique work of art. The petals are then pressed with millinery brass irons and sewn together to make perfect blossoms.”
