Enchanting floral hair accessories for your English wedding – Yelena Smirnova

I’m 36 and I read fairy stories – magical tales of enchantment and adventure, myths and legends, from Tolkien via Harry Potter via Kelsingra… because I love fantasy, creativity and escapism. Unashamedly. And these floral hair accessories by the amazing Yelena Smirnova are right up my street – beautiful flowers to wear on your wedding day, with more than a dash of all the beauty to be found in adult fairy tales. My favourite is the Rosalie hair comb… which is yours? Here’s Yelena to welcome you to her world…

Floral hair accessories, handcrafted by Yelena Smirnova

I specialise in handcrafted floral hair accessories for wedding and occasionwear that range from headpieces, corsages, bracelets, sashes and more.

Each design is unique and bespoke, using the finest natural fabrics, such as silk, organza, velvet and lace.

Each floral accessory takes hours of workmanship to create. Each is made with meticulous precision in a craft based on antique tools. Every single petal, stamen and leaf is sculpted with skill. This is an art form that stretches back over centuries.

I get my inspiration from art, folklore and fairy tales, but the beauty of nature is one of my main sources of inspiration. Looking at a flower, I not only enjoy its beauty but think about how I can create it from fabric.

Constantly experimenting with colours, forms and texture I strive to create new and exciting pieces that stand out for their originality and elegance with a nod to vintage design. Most of my floral hair accessories can be recreated in a fabric and colour to match a bride’s wedding dress and accentuate her individuality.
